An Overview of Postsurgical Healing

After an aesthetic or reconstructive surgery, you may experience some discomfort, pain, stiffness, or temporary numbness. Trauma in the surgical area leads to inflammation. A Medical Compression Garment or Bra assists in the healing process and improves procedure results.

The benefits of proper compression and support can reduce the risk of seromas, lymphedema, hematomas, and skin unevenness.

Accurate compression and support:

  • reduces fluid build up increases blood circulation
  • promotes proper skin adhesion to newly contoured areas
  • holds surgical dressings in place until removed
  • supports incision to heal properly

Most of the swelling and bruising subsides within a few weeks, though some light swelling can last up to six months. Doctors advise their patients to wear compression garments for at least the first few weeks after a procedure. Patients may find it more comfortable to wear the garments until all the swelling has completely subsided and the final results are revealed.
