Q.  How can shapewear help with liposuction?

Benefits of using shapewear for Liposuction:

Following liposuction, your doctor will might suggest you wear some kind of shapewear. Wearing shapewear after liposuction is important to improve blood circulation, lessen swelling after the procedure, flush the body out of potentially harmful fluids, accelerate the healing process, and allow the patient to return to daily routines sooner.  After liposuction, shapewear also provides support to surgical areas for more comfort while helping your skin adjust better to your body’s new contours. Some doctors suggest wearing shapewear during both the First Stage (initial 1-2 weeks of post-op) and Second Stage (2-8 weeks post-op) of recovery. For this reason, you may need to get both а First Stage garment and а Second Stage garment. We suggest you consult your doctor before making any purchases.

Shapewear also provides support to areas recovering from a surgical procedure. It offers comfort and helps the skin fit better to it new contours. This second stage garment is sized smaller, is more fashionable, and has а less bulky appearance than а first stage garment. The Female Abdominal & Lower Body Compression Girdle - Mid-Thigh- Stage Two is appropriate for liposuction, abdominal and lower body procedures, as well as for body procedures following gastric bypass or bariatric surgery.

This garment improves blood circulation, minimizes swelling, flushes the body out of potentially harmful fluids, helps skin fit better to it new contours, accelerates healing and allows the patient to return to a normal daily routine.

If worn properly, shapewear is appropriate for liposuction (lift, reduction, brachioplasty), as well as following gastric bypass or bariatric surgery.  Shapewear can improve blood circulation, compresses bleeding vessels, minimize swelling after the procedure, promotes perspiration to flush the body of potentially harmful fluids, accelerates the healing process, and allows the wearer to return to their daily routines sooner then patients that do not utilize them.
