What to Wear After a Tummy Tuck

tummy tuck garment characteristics - Leonisa

It’s important for abdominoplasty patients to know what to wear after a tummy tuck. The proper tummy tuck compression garment offers many benefits, like a faster recovery and comfort as the incision heals. Leonisa tummy tuck compression garments are designed with comfort so the patient can heal the best way possible.

Benefits of Wearing a Tummy Tuck Compression Garment

Tummy tuck compression garments can fit rather snug, which some people may find uncomfortable and restrictive. However, there are many benefits of wearing a tummy tuck for abdominoplasty recovery, such as:

Helps Reduce the Risk of Seroma
Similar to a hematoma, which is blood pockets that collect under the skin, seroma is pockets of fluid. Since the most common complication from abdominoplasty is seroma, a doctor-recommended tummy tuck compression garment is imperative to reduce the risk by applying pressure and minimizing fluid retention.

Promotes Better Circulation
Tummy tuck compression garments can increase blood circulation and help promote faster healing, as well as reduce swelling, bruising and minimize the risk of blood clots.

Offers Comfort
Tummy tuck compression garments can support tissues as you go about the day. The incision and tender surrounding tissues should be comfortably protected, without any pulls or strains.

Helps Avoid Contour Irregularities
While uncommon, contour irregularities can occur if not soon corrected. A tummy tuck garment can help even out and flatten lumps and bumps that might cause these irregularities.

What to Look for in a Tummy Tuck Compression Garment

Once you learn what to wear after a tummy tuck, it’s important to find a high-quality material as well as a shape and compression level that offer the ultimate comfort and support.

Leonisa’s tummy tuck compression garments offer a smooth inner layer that is soft on the skin and avoids irritating incisions.

Keep in mind that to obtain the expected results after a tummy tuck, it’s essential to wear a tummy tuck compression garment with the correct compression level and size that is recommended by your doctor.
