Compression 

1st Stage: Typically worn immediately after a procedure.  These garments have zippers and/or hook & eye closures to make it easier to take the garment on and off during the first part of your recovery.  On average, a physician will most likely recommend you wear a first stage garment for three to four weeks.  During this time, the garment should be worn at all times and only be removed to shower or bathe.

2nd Stage: In the weeks following a procedure, a 2nd stage garment is also recommended.  Since the body is now accumulating less fluid, the 2nd stage garment can be worn for less time during each 24-hour period.  A 2nd stage garment does not have closures, has a tighter fit and provides greater compression to ensure proper skin retraction, fluid reduction and tissue adherence.
