GARMENT USE FOLLOWING SURGICAL PROCEDURES OF THE BODY
Following surgery, a garment with adequate compression can help with reducing edema or swelling which occurs as a result of the surgical process. With targeted compression, scars heal softer and flatter, lymphatic drainage is accelerated, and the body is gently remodeled.
Garment use following surgery is typically divided into two phases:
1st phase: the garments are more compressive and are intended to facilitate drainage of areas of swelling and help remodel the treated areas. VOE 1st stage garments provide optimal compression with flat seams to avoid depressions on the skin. Their garments are also created with three rows of hook and eye closures, which allows the fit to be adjusted as swelling reduces. Zippered garments include a protective skin tab, and a genital opening is present to allow the garment to be worn almost continually. Patients notes that use of the garments assists with reducing pain, providing support of the operated area, and reshaping the figure.
2nd phase: the garment is used to provide a transition from the first phase to the patient’s regular undergarments.
