Believe it or not, your garment can play a big role in promoting and maintaining your results.
Liposuction or tummy tuck patients, in order for you to maintain your results and prevent fluid from collecting,the garment is a must! The compression garment helps guide the skin in its retracion. It plays an important role in tightening the skin, reducing the swelling and promoting better blood and fluid circulation. It also helps to ensure maximum skin contraction and that the skin heals evenly, without unwanted folds or creases. The garment must be worn for a minimum of 6 weeks.
For breast surgery patients your garment is also very important. Your bra should be worn day and night for the first two weeks!
