Why Wear Compression?

bs06.jpgA medical compression garment can assist in the body’s healing process and improve procedure results, postoperatively.  However, accurate compression and patient compliance in wearing a medical compression garment can affect the outcome.  For the most part, patients who comply with their doctor’s recommendation to wear a compression garment have reported a greater sense of overall satisfaction associated with their procedure results. The benefits of proper compression on the subdermal layers can reduce the risk of seromas, lymphedema, hematomas, and skin unevenness.

Benefits:

•  reduces fluid build-up in subdermal lipectomy area
•  increases blood circulation
•  promotes proper skin adhesion to newly contoured areas
•  holds surgical dressings in place until removed
•  protects incision site
