Liposuction is a type of cosmetic surgery that removes fat from the human body in an attempt to change its shape. Areas operated on can include the abdomen, thighs, buttocks, and backs of the arms. The procedure may be performed under general, regional, or local anesthesia.
For those that undergo Liposuction surgery for the abdomen, usually deemed “Cosmetic” wearing a abdominal compression band like the Core compression band from Boundr, can provide extra support to those abdominal muscles impacted by this type of surgery.
When liposuction is performed, a wide array of tunnels are created in the fat that is left after the procedure. The compression garment helps to obliterate these tunnels and prevents them from filling up with fluid, which can cause the healing more slowly.
Wearing the Core Compression Band can help in controlling swelling, that may occur after the Liposuction procedure as well. The compression on your tissues helps your body to reabsorb the edema fluid that accumulates in the tissues after any procedure. This can take quite some time to happen without help from the compression garments. Surgeries like Liposuction can take from 3 – 6 weeks to heal, and it has been found that people who wear a compression band, like Boundr’s Core compression bands feel less sore then those patients who elect to not wear one.
The proprietary moisture wicking material which makes up the Core compression band is easily worn under your garments, so you can get the support you need at home or at work.
