Where can I get garments for post-surgery healing?

Compression StockingsAfter surgical procedures at Acqua Med Spa, patients are strongly encouraged to follow their post-operative care instructions from their provider. This may include obtaining and wearing compression garments in the treated area. Many patients have question about why they need to wear these garments and how to obtain them. 

Why do I need to wear a compression garment after surgery? 

Wearing a compression garment after surgical procedures is a great way to promote the natural healing process after certain body treatments have been performed. They can help in: 

  • Holding together the skin for less scarring
  • Supporting the underlying muscles
  • Reducing the amount of bruising from the procedure
  • Minimizing swelling and inflammation

It is important that patients obtain their compression garments prior to their procedure, and we invite individuals to bring their garments into our practice to make sure they are the proper size and fit right. The provider can also go over how to use the garments to ensure the best possible results. 

How long do I need to wear a compression garment following surgery? 

Compression garments following surgeries are often worn for 24 hours for the first week or two, and then used less as healing progresses. Patients should remove their garments for showering, bathing, or washing the garment itself, but should use as directed by their doctor. 

Where can I get post-surgery compression garments? 

Post-surgery compression garments are typically available online or at local drugstores for over-the-counter purchase. We recommend buying one before your procedure as you will be in recovery during this time and likely unable to shop around comfortably. Patients who are having trouble finding compression garments can use any type of garment, even Spanx, if needed. Our team can make a recommendation for individuals who are unsure of what to obtain for their needs.
