Recovering Properly With Your Liposuction Garment

Jan 15, 2008
Compared to other surgical procedures, it takes shorter time to recover from liposuction. One essential for proper recovery is the liposuction garment. Wearing this will speed up the process and reduce the swelling that is accompanying the liposuction.

Liposuction surgery is usually undergone when you want to lose weight fast or when you want to sculpt your body. Since this is an unnatural operation, one has to bear with some after effects as well as some damage to the body. It is inevitable that some trauma will be experienced by the affected area after the procedure.

Cells, tissues, blood vessels and capillaries can be damaged because of the movements and the suctioning of the cannula inside the body. This is inevitable, however, so that the body will be toned to your desired shape. But one should be careful for nerves and the internal organs be damaged by the procedure, since this will lead to serious dangers.

Swelling is the body's natural reaction to this damage to its cells and tissues. A certain area may swell since the sensitive cells release fluid and chemicals when the cannula hits it. Blood and fluids will be brought to the affected area to avert the damage, as well as some waste fluids travel from the area. This will cause a jam at the area which causes the swelling. This usually develops after a few hours or days after the actual procedure.

You can expect swelling if you undergo the tumescent procedure. From the name itself, tumescent means "swelling". The best way to go about it is to wear a proper liposuction garment.

Made of material which assists in fluid drainage, a liposuction garment is simply essential not only for recovery but for toning as well. This garment helps in tightening the skin, reducing the swelling, as well as promoting better blood and fluid circulation around the affected area. The area covered by the liposuction will determine the design as well as the style of the liposuction garment to be worn by the patient.

Most common are those liposuction garment that look like long underwear. This is usually worn by women who just had cellulite liposuction on their thighs. The general rule in choosing a liposuction garment is that it should be one size smaller than one's body hugging gym clothes.

Wear the garment according to the time or period given by the doctor. The patient can wear it for as long as he/she wants. These can be worn for weeks and even while the patient is already working. New technology has come out that can make one wear the liposuction garment in as little as 3 days or when the fluid has drained out.

To promote drainage of fluids, others would rely on adits. Whatever your choice, it is best to consult your doctor first in what option you should take, so that your recovery will be a smooth and immediate one.
