Wearing compression garments is a crucial part of your post-operative recovery process. Surgical procedures like breast implants, breast reduction, liposuction, and abdominoplasty lead to swelling, bruising, scarring, and other side-effects.
What are compression garments?
Compression garments are skin tight garments worn after a surgical procedure to improve the results and recovery process. They apply constant pressure on the post-surgical sites to minimize the risk of infections, prevent fluid accumulation, and help the scars heal faster. High-quality compression garments can be made of various antimicrobial materials, such as nylon and lycra. They also come in various shapes and sizes, depending on the treatment area.
