Post-surgery compression garments

Wearing the correct garment post-operatively is proven to speed up the healing process and minimise swelling and bruising, as well as reducing pain. The correct level of compression limits the risk of blood clots, haematomas and seromas and prevents the excess fluid accumulation, commonly known as swelling.

For those reasons, compression garments are an important part of the surgery. Patients wearing compression garments after plastic surgery have been reported to have more satisfactory results.

Post-operative compression garments help to keep a constant and uniform pressure on the skin and deeper tissues after the procedure and eliminate swelling caused by possible accumulation of fluid. The right pressure and support are essential to produce optimal healing.
