Dr. Gusching highly recommends Marena’s Compression Garments for post-surgical care. These garments offer optimal compression, ensuring effective swelling reduction and faster healing. 
 
Although we send you home from surgery in a compression garment, many patients prefer to have an additional one.

Post-surgical garments, also known as compression garments, are crucial after a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) for several reasons:

  1. Support and Stability: These garments provide necessary support to the abdominal area, helping to maintain the newly shaped contours and supporting the muscles and skin as they heal.

  2. Reduction of Swelling: Compression garments help reduce postoperative swelling by promoting better blood circulation and preventing the buildup of fluids in the tissues, which is common after surgery.

  3. Minimizing Bruising: By applying even pressure, these garments can minimize bruising, which can occur due to the trauma of the surgery.

  4. Improved Healing: The compression helps keep the skin in close contact with the underlying tissues, promoting better adherence and reducing the risk of complications like seromas (fluid accumulation) and hematomas (blood accumulation).

  5. Comfort and Pain Management: Wearing a compression garment can provide comfort and reduce pain by stabilizing the surgical area, limiting movements that could be painful or disruptive to the healing process.

  6. Scarring: Compression garments can help improve the appearance of scars by keeping the skin flat and preventing excessive stretching or pulling of the incision sites.

  7. Overall Results: Consistent use of a compression garment as recommended by a surgeon can enhance the final aesthetic outcome of the tummy tuck, ensuring a smoother and more uniform appearance of the abdominal area.
