Male Liposuction Compression Garments

Male Liposuction Compression Garments

Postby Make_Me_Heal_Team » Tue Sep 11, 2007 11:34 am

Since everyone is always wondering what is the best compression garment to wear for your recovery from liposuction, below are the most popular liposuction compression garments based on the experience of hundreds of men here:

Note: Stage one garments are worn immediately post-op for up to 1-2 weeks following surgery. A stage one garment is designed to be less tight and bigger due to your swelling and has zippers for ease. Stage two garments are made smaller to account for the reduction of swelling, do not have zippers, and are worn during weeks 2-8 post-op or longer, as needed. Stage 2 garments can be worn for long periods of time, as needed and as long as swelling continues. Some patients have worn them for weeks, or months, and even beyond a year.

Medical Compression Garments Vs. Non-Medical Garments

Postby Make_Me_Heal_Team » Tue Sep 11, 2007 11:35 am

It is important to know the benefits of wearing a medical compression garment and why it is superior to wearing a regular spandex shapewear or some non-medical over-the-counter regular garment.

How Can A Compression Garment Help My Healing?

Wearing a garment after liposuction is essential to improve blood circulation, minimize swelling after the procedure, keep implants in their correct position, flush the body out of potentially harmful fluids, accelerate the healing process, and allow the patient to return to daily routines sooner. A compression garment also provides support to surgical areas for more comfort and helps the skin fit better to its new contours. Depending on the doctor's instructions, you may need to wear support and compression garments for a period of time that may range from days, weeks, and longer depending on your individual healing rate.

Non-Medical Garments Can Prolong Recovery Time & Increase Discomfort
Wearing a non-medical garment from your local store that is not specifically made for a cosmetic or medical procedure can unnecessarily prolong your recovery time, slow down your healing, worsen your swelling and other symptoms, and increase the discomfort that you experience during the healing journey. Compression garments are not created equal and just because a non-medical garment might seem to offer some degree of compression does not mean that it is good for post-operative recovery from surgery.

Non-Medical Garments Are Not Meant To Be Worn For Long Time Periods
Additionally, non-medical compression garments are not meant to be worn for long periods of time, which is necessary following surgery. A high quality post-operative, medical compression garment is specifically designed to be worn for long time periods during the recovery process from a cosmetic surgery. The fabrics and construction used in a medical compression garment enable a patient to wear the garment for long periods of time without experiencing discomfort. On the other hand, an off-the-shelf non-medical garment is not meant to be worn for long periods of time.

Non-Medical Garments Don’t Address A Specific Medical Procedure
Further, high-quality medical compression garments are designed to address patients recovering from liposuction. On the other hand, when you wear a non-medical garment, you are not getting a garment that is designed to meet the needs of a patient recovering from a specific procedure.

Non-Medical Garments Don’t Have Key Features, Materials & Technology Of Medical Garments
Finally, non-medical garments do not have the key features, construction, materials, and technology used in the plastic surgery compression garments featured in the Make Me Heal Store. First, the medical garments are designed with a targeted compression technology that makes sure that you receive the maximum compression in key surgical areas. In addition to providing maximum compression in the surgical areas, the garment will also provide general support for all areas of the body that the garment is covering. The combination of targeted compression and general support helps reduce the overall recovery time, improves comfort, and helps you get the best cosmetic outcome.

Medical garments such as those featured in the Make Me Heal Store offer features that are unavailable in non-medical garments, including no seams at key surgical areas and labels that are placed on the outside of the garments to avoid irritation and help make you more comfortable during the recovery process. For additional comfort, many of the medical garments have an open-crotch design so that the garment does not need to be removed at any time. Many of the garments also have flat lock stitching.

The medical garments such as those featured on Make Me Heal are made of a latex-free, strong, breathable and lightweight compression fabric that feels good next to the skin, dries quickly, and is the best material for post-operative compression. While fabrics that are typically used by non-medical garments found in your local store lose the compression properties or “memory” over time, the fabrics used by the medical compression garments in the Store are designed to provide the ideal amount of constant and consistent compression from every direction for long wear during the recovery process. Additionally, the highest quality zippers, hook and eye closures, and threads are used. Garments are either 100% latex free or both 100% latex and formaldehyde free.
