How long after surgery should I wear a girdle for a tummy tuck

Many women are aware that a tummy tuck is an invasive procedure that includes the removal of the excess skin and tightening of the abdomen. Most of the patients who undergo the tummy tuck procedure particularly the hourglass tummy tuck combine the said surgical operation with liposuction as well as fat transfer to the hip. One of the things that patients are concerned about regarding the tummy tuck procedure is somewhat similar to liposuction. The downside of the tummy tuck is the normal swelling and bruising.

Patients worry about the effects that they could get once the tummy tuck is performed. Worry not because you can achieve better results with the use of a girdle. It is one of the most effective ways in the ensuring best results after liposuction. Some patients find it annoying to wear the said garment. This is because girdles are tight and most of the time, they are uncomfortable to wear. After the procedure, girdles should be worn for about 3 to 4 months. You should be aware that the swelling and bruising, hardness and lumpiness of a tummy tuck will not be resolved in just a week. There will also be scar formation but the healing process will progress as time passes by.

Do not be curious if internal scarring occurs because it is a normal thing. It happens to the soft tissues which were surgically excised, corrected, and enhanced. Some people might wear a girdle for a much longer period than normal. Girdles of different sizes must also be worn by the patients who have undergone the tummy tuck procedure. This is because as your swelling subsides, the girdle will also need to be changed to a smaller size to provide enough compression. You should wear girdles even if you are uncomfortable with this kind of garment because girdles help in achieving better results.
