Why do I need a compression garment after abdominoplasty?


Answer by  VCraig (88)

A compression garment to the abdomen is best for reasons of comfort and pain control. Also the garment will provide support for the weakened abdominal muscles until those muscles are strong enough again and the wound has healed enough to prevent the wound from reopening and prevention of surgery complications.

Compression garments help because in the process of cutting the drainage for your tissues has to be rebuilt -- pressure helps the extra fluids get back to the bloodstream where they should be so that your tissues do not get stretched out and slack. Also, you will be a great deal more comfortable with correctly fitting compression.
