What are compression garments?

Compression garments are specially designed elastic apparel worn after surgical procedures. They also may be used as body slimmers and provide additional support by contouring to the body or body part.

What are the benefits of compression garments?

Compression garments have several medical benefits such as reducing swelling from a surgical procedure and decreasing the risk of a blood clot. By speeding up blood flow, compression garments assist in flushing harmful fluids out of the body during post-surgical recovery. They also help control sudden uncomfortable movements (i.e. cough or sneeze), which is especially important during the immediate post-operative stage. Compression garments provide patient comfort and accelerate the healing process.

When is a compression garment used?

Compression garments have several uses but are intended to be used during surgical recovery. Plastic surgeons generally recommend the use of compression garments after a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), liposuction, arm lift (brachioplasty), facelift (rhytidectomy), gastric bypass, gynecomastia treatment (male breast reduction), and breast surgeries. Dermatologists can also recommend compression garments for patients with lymphoma, burns, and varicose veins in an effort to increase quality of life. A popular trend with compression garments is non-medical use for body shaping and slimming, which helps clothing fit better.

What is the difference between regular or retail garments (a.k.a. sportswear) and medical compression garments?

There are vast differences between retail garments and medical garments. For example, medical wear has a much higher level of compression than garments sold through retail establishments. Medical-grade garments feature additional fabric layers, panels, and a higher Lyrca®/Nylon (or Powernet) content. A medical garment's compression rating can be 3-4 times that of sportswear. Medical garments also are much more durable than retail compression wear. As long as product care instructions are followed, medical compression garments are designed to be worn 24/7 for up to 6 to 8 weeks without losing integrity. Retail sportswear is only designed to be worn for the short term (4-6 hour increments) and would rapidly lose integrity if worn all day everyday.

What are the different types of compression garments?

Important points to remember when choosing a post operative compression garment is selecting the applicable garment and getting the right size. Choosing the incorrect post surgical compression garment can do more harm than good. Always seek your surgeon or patient recovery specialist advice when making this decision.
