Compression garment after reconstructive surgeries is an imperative.
After the invasive surgeries such as Liposuction, Breast Augmentation, Gynecomastia, Breast Reduction, Breast Lift, Abdominoplasty/Tummy Tuck, 6 Pack Abs Surgery and Chin Augmentation, a compression garment is the most important tool to reduce the chances of complications and add extra benefits.
RG Aesthetics relies on custom-made compression garments, specifically designed and constructed by SwellCure, for the customized needs of patients as per various surgeries. A Compression garment or belt is to be worn 24/7 for at least 3 weeks post surgery except for bathing and self-cleaning times. After this, the patients are required to wear it for another 3 weeks for daytime and are allowed to remove for night.
Why do you need a compression garment post reconstructive surgery?
- To Control Postoperative Swelling – After the reconstructive surgeries, edema fluid starts to collect in the tissue, resulting in swelling (tissue edema) of the treated areas. A compression belt helps to reduce the swelling and to keep it under control by applying pressure on tissues and pushing the fluid back into veins and lymphatic vessels.
- To Prevent Collection of Other Left-over Fluids – A clear fluid called Seromas gets collected in the empty spaces that are left after the surgeries, making uneasy pockets of clear fluids. This often requires to be drained out with the help of a needle. A compression belt keeps these empty spaces compressed up, not allowing the fluid to get accumulated and causing extreme discomfort.
- To Contour and Improve The Final Appearance – The compression belt after surgeries helps to keep the treated tissues in place while the healing is in process which helps to gain a better and refined contour.
- To Helps Improve on Scarring – Pressure, when applied correctly, helps to improve the appearance of scars. Compression belt helps to organize the collagen fibres as the scars are beginning to form, causing the scars to be softer and easy to manage.
At RG Aesthetics, we create custom belts for patients simply because custom sizes are required, as one size doesn’t fits all. The technical requirements also vary as per the specific procedure. A perfect compression belt after reconstructive surgery is definitely the effective tool to achieve better contouring and to sustain the results.
