Is It Necessary to Wear Compression Garment?
Liposuction removes fat for slim and beautiful body shape.
It’s certain that you lose weight immediately
since it melts and extracts the fat right away.
It would be perfect if you get perfect body shape
after leaving the operating room,
but there is swelling waiting for us as the first barrier.
And there comes the second, compression garment!
Let’s learn the reason of compression garment after liposuction~
First, skin elasticity!
Accusculpting laser, which is used for melting and extracting fat during liposuction,
has good feature of effect on lifting and tightening
as well as melting fat.
Although we can get elastic body lines instantly
through liposuction and Accusculpt,
there is need of quite recovery for empty site of fat extraction
since liposuction get rid of fat in surgical way in short term.
Then we can prevent saggy skins and get elasticity
by wearing compression garment.
Second, pain decrease effect!
It’s not that hurt after liposuction.
There is no one who cannot feel pain at all,
but it’s rather stiff than hurt.
It’s like muscular pain the day after excessive exercises.
It feels like the entire body is in knots
so that body slows off the mark with much swelling.
It hurts when the operated area is touched or grazed,
and compression garment is a big help for that.
The time to start wearing compression garment is differed by clinics,
but it averagely starts after 3 days.
Compression garment literally does compress the body,
so you have to try hard to put it on if you got much swelling.
It’s fairly difficult to wear it because of swelling and tightness.
it feels more comfortable with less pain after putting it on.
Decreasing swelling is the most important factor
not only to wear compression garment
but for prompt decrease of swelling.
That’s why walking and moving a lot is recommended after surgery.
(You can walk far comfortably with compression garment on.)
Third, few side effects!
Everyone is worried about side effects after operation.
Side effects for liposuction can be divided into two things:
one is edema fluid which is made in empty space in the body after liposuction,
and the other is uneven skin surface.
However, you don’t have to worry about that if you wear compression garment :)
It tightens body during recovery
decreasing the skin adhesion
as well as restoring empty space inside skins.
You have to remember this:
more than 8 hours of compression garment each day is necessary
at least for a month,
and you should stay wearing it even in daily life.
There is no use at night since you seldom move while sleeping.
Putting it on is getting easier,
swelling is decreased drastically,
surgery result is being seen more and more
if you move a lot.
Don’t stay at home thinking that it’s tightening or stiff!
Just move and walk anywhere!
