I bought 6 of these, as I was instructed by the manufacturer for post liposuction surgery. When I started using them one had a short in it and they had to overnight a replacement. They are supposed to last a minimum of 720 hours. Starting at about 2 weeks (336 hours) the batteries all started dying. Over the next week 5 of the six I bought died. As of today I am 3 weeks post op (504 hours) and only one is still working. 5 out of 6 defective is not a very good track record. While this product did reduce swelling, I feel totally ripped off for something I spent $40 each for. My doctor really wanted me to wear them for 30 days (720 hours), but I really don't feel like spending double, just to get what the manufacturer promised..

Make Me Heal Plastic Surgery Healing Supplements & Vitamins Kit (Pre & Post-Op Formulas)

This Pre & Post Op Multinutrient Kit (with Bromelain; no Vitamin E) has been designed specifically to help patients accelerate healing and obtain better cosmetic results following plastic surgery (as well as general surgeries) by providing all the vital healing supplements, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and amino acids that have been shown to be vital for preparing the body for surgery and for helping one have a faster recovery. Taken in tablet/pill form starting anywhere from 1-2 weeks pre-op or several days before the surgery up until 30 days post-op, the Multinutrient Kit helps build and maximize your body’s tissue reserves of nutrients that are important for the healing process, helps speed up recovery by strengthening the body’s natural healing process, helping reduce swelling and bruising, supporting wound healing, promoting repair and growth of tissues damaged by surgery, and by protecting the body from infection by enhancing the immune system defenses. Appropriate for both women and men of all ages.
