Why wearing a compression girdle after abdominoplasty ?

Wearing a support girdle after abdominoplasty has several advantages and is often recommended by plastic surgeons to promote optimal recovery. Here are just a few reasons why a compression girdle is used after abdominoplasty :

  1. Compression : The compression girdle exerts gentle but constant pressure on the abdominal area, which can reduce postoperative swelling and promote blood circulation. This compression can help minimize bruising and edema, as well as support tissues during the healing process.
  2. Tissue support : After abdominoplasty, abdominal tissues may be weakened or weakened as a result of surgery. The compression girdle offers additional support to tissues during the recovery period, which can help reduce discomfort and promote faster healing.
  3. Maintaining results : The compression girdle can help maintain abdominoplasty results by ensuring that tissues heal in an optimal position. It can also help prevent the formation of hypertrophic or keloid scars by maintaining constant pressure on the treated area.
  4. Comfort : Wearing a compression girdle can help reduce post-operative discomfort by stabilizing the abdominal area and limiting excessive movements that could aggravate pain.
  5. Compliance with post-operative recommendations : Plastic surgeons usually provide specific instructions on how to wear a compression garment after abdominoplasty. Following these recommendations can contribute to a successful recovery and optimal aesthetic results.

It is important to follow your plastic surgeon's recommendations for wearing compression garments after abdominoplasty, including duration and specific instructions. In general, the compression garment is worn for several weeks to a few months after the procedure, depending on the patient's individual needs and the type of tummy tuck.
