This procedure will change the shape of your body…forever. Your surgeon will hear your dreams, and together you will make them a reality. Wearing the appropriate binder and then faja, help to control inflammation, diminish bruising and swelling. NOT only will you heal with less pain, but can look forward to smoother more dramatic contours.
Included in the Thigh Lipo Recovery Box:
Compression Girdle (to mid-calf)
This faja will be placed on you just after your surgery while you are still asleep. This garment is worn for the first 6 weeks after surgery. Its primary goal is to prevent swelling, bleeding and excessive bruising. This garment provides compressions (light, not excessive), and should be removed during the day, only at physicians orders. Wearing a cotton t-shirt next to your skin may help to maximize comfort. Wearing this will also reduce tension on incision lines to minimize risk of abnormal scarring.
This has been shown anecdotally, to reduce pain, bruising, and swelling. Arnica Gel can be used in any are but incision sites, or where the integrity of the skin has been compromised.
Absorbent Pads (Qty 3)
First 24-48 hours after surgery (especially when liposuction is performed), expect to have copious amounts of drainage. This fluid is very watery, red and may look like bleeding, but is absolutely normal. These absorbent pads help to absorb the leaking fluid. We provide you with 3 packages, which should be sufficient to absorb all of the fluid we expect to drain out.
