Following an abdominoplasty, will the doctor will ask me to wear a compression garment?

How long will I have to wear it?

This depends on the doctor and the extent of your abdominal surgery. You will likely be asked to wear one for at least 5 to 7 days.

It is advisable to wear a compression garment post-abdominoplasty. You may be instructed to wear it for 3 to 6 weeks. The primary purpose of this compression garment is to minimize bruising and swelling thus aiding in faster recovery.

You will need to wear a compression garment for a month or more following your abdominoplasty in order to have a good result. Find a good one before your surgery.

Yes – and wearing the compression garment is extremely important for a speedy recovery, because it reduces the swelling and increases the blood circulation. You should wear it for at least two weeks after the intervention, and up to 8 weeks, depending on the reactions of the organism (the doctor may recommend using different kinds of garments during this period).
