Compression alternative after a tummy tuck

Tummy tuck surgery is considered as an easy procedure; however, the recovery part is not as simple as it sounds. That’s why patients are always recommended to use compression alternative after a tummy tuck.

When it comes to performing the hourglass tummy tuck technique, I perform liposuction on the upper and lower back as well as on the flanks and abdomen. The excess skin will be removed and the harvested fat would be injected in the hip area. Once liposuction is combined with any other cosmetic procedure, the recovery period is usually extended than usual because of the traumatic injury brought by liposuction itself. However, surgeons have a great alternative for this condition. Patients are strongly advised to wear compression garments or girdles.

Girdles help a lot to decrease the swelling and avoid any cosmetic liposuction deformities. The compression also lessens the pain. However, using compression garments vary from one patient to another. This is often because of size and the dimension of their hips to the waist. In these cases, patients are being advised to use postoperative corsets. Any kind of corset will be sufficient to provide compression while the swelling goes down.

.Some surgeons even advise the use abdominal binders to provide support to the patient. But based on my experience, abdominal binders tend to roll up. It is quite hard to keep them in place to provide even compression, so I tend not to recommend them as much as possible as it causes more problems than benefits. The compression girdles need to be used to compress the body significantly for the first three months of recovery. Wearing the girdle is considered an important part of the recovery process. If the patients use compression alternative accordingly, they will experience faster recovery and can gain even better results.
