Abdominal Girdle (1 Zipper)
The Abdominal Girdle provides gentle reinforcement for the abdomen and flank regions with a unique zippered side closure that opens completely for ease of application. Great for tummy tucks, hysterectomies, c-sections or hernias. Slims the waistline for smoother appearance under clothing.
Product description: The abdominal girdle with single side zipper provides enhanced post-surgical compression for the abdomen and flank regions. Used as a critical component to proper healing following abdominal procedures, it also is the best non-surgical solution for creating an instantly slimmer-looking physique beneath all types of clothing. Top-grade fabric gently hugs surgical areas for healing comfort. Specially-designed crotch closure ensures ease of use in the restroom. Available in beige or black with a 2 or 4-inch waistband.
Common post-surgical uses: The abdominal girdle is the ultimate medical-grade garment for women recovering from cosmetic surgeries such as tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), hernia operations, and abdominal liposuction procedures.
Non-surgical advantages: The abdominal girdle smoothes and sculpts the waistline beneath formal and business wear for a trim, slim fit. This garment is especially helpful in shaping loose tissue and skin beneath clothing following weight loss.
Flawlessly fashioned: Nouvelle’s exclusive medical-grade designs cannot be found in retail stores. We proudly offer only latex-free products MADE IN THE USA. Our garments use a 55% Lycra®/45% nylon content for a smooth, comfortable feeling next to healing skin. This fabric combination ensures garments never lose compression integrity with continual use and appropriate laundering.
Detail highlights: The difference between our products and mass-produced retail offerings is in the details. In an effort to minimize discomfort during post-operative healing stages, we carefully scrutinized every stitch, every panel, and every possible way the abdomen girdle could help in the healing process. Most undergarments readily available through retail chains are simply not made with this level of care or quality. Three distinguishing characteristics:
1. Fabric structure. Featuring four-way stretch and memory, each girdle can withstand numerous washes, endure extremely long wear times, and miraculously retain original shape and quality. All designs have been through rigorous testing and meticulous scrutiny to ensure complete comfort and enhanced efficacy of every angle, seam and compression area.
2. Quality craftsmanship. Nouvelle designs have a reputation for superior craftsmanship. Our garments offer distinctly soft, silky textures so comfortable against sensitive surgical areas, you may be tempted to continue wearing them long after healing. We use only the finest fabric available, and hand-inspect each seam and stitch to ensure garments are soundly, solidly constructed.
3. Comfort. Realizing post-operative healing stages can be uncomfortable, we paid particular attention to every conceivable way the fabric of the abdomen girdle touches the skin. Stitches are constructed so they are perfectly flat, so as not to aggravate incisions. Zippers and hook-and-eye closures are never in danger of contacting the skin. Not a single design uses metal wires or stays.
Benefits: When applied correctly, compression wear can increase blood circulation around surgical areas to accelerate healing, diminish swelling, and flush out harmful fluids. In the event of sudden movements such as sneezing or coughing, the garments help protect and stabilize the surgical site, minimizing discomfort. The result is not only a shorter recovery time, but a cleaner surgical area with minimal scarring.
Instructions: Pull on girdle all the way to upper abdominal area. Use fastener in crotch region to adjust for optimum fitting. Pull zipper up completely to apply even compression.
Care: Wash by hand or machine using cold water and mild soap. Line or gentle machine dry only.
Sizing: Use the size charts to determine proper fit ($10 surcharge for 2X-Large).
Consider buying two: A good rule of thumb is to purchase duplicate girdles so you always have a backup. The key to a successful surgical result is consistent compression, so you will want to ensure the site is always protected and secure.
