And, regardless of the surgery, they can be worn for cosmetic purposes. It makes your posture appear more straight and beautiful. There is also some undergarment make the bent posture to be seen straight posture.
In Evita clinic, after liposuction, tummy tuck (lipo-abdominoplasty) and gynecomastia surgery we suggest to wear the compression garment. The suggestive period is about 1 ~ 2 months. After these surgeries, swelling occurs. If you wear compression garment, swelling and pain is much less compare with when you don’t wear the compression garment.
After liposuction, tummy tuck(lipo-abdominoplasty), and gynecomastia surgery, an empty space occurs in the body. In the case of liposuction and tummy tuck, since the fat is inhaled literally, the empty space is created in the subcutaneous skin layer, and after the gynecomastia surgery, an appropriate amount of fat is removed together with the removal of the mammary gland, the empty space occurs.
In this case, when you wear a compression garment, you can press the surgical area and help the empty space to be filled out quickly. By doing so, it prevents the skin layer from becoming uneven so that it can be smooth. In addition, if there is an empty space in the body after surgery, the skin may also be slightly stretched. By helping to maintain the elasticity of the stretched skin, thereby you can see satisfactory body line.
And compression suits also help prevent hematomas. Hematoma is a state in which serosity fluid or blood is stuck in organs or tissues. As mentioned above, there may be empty space in the body after surgery. This empty space is filled with serosity water as a natural phenomenon. This body fluid component may harden over time. Of course, this kind of hardened scar tissue gradually absorbs over time. However, if this continues for a long time, it may be uncomfortable and the recovery period may become longer than usual.
The skin should be in contact with each other so that it can be quickly healed. If the hematoma occurs in the empty space, the skins of each side cannot be contacted with because of this hematoma is filled between skins. Skins should be healed well if they get contacted with, without any space or other substance. Therefore, if you press the empty space by wearing a compression garment, it will be helpful to prevent body fluid stagnation also hematoma.
