Surgery to the stomach area, such as Tummy tuck (abdominoplasty), Liposuction or surgery for breast reconstruction that uses the tummy skin and fat (know as a DIEP or TRAM flap) are painful procedures. The surgery involves dividing the abdominal skin and fat from the underlying muscle layers, which can result in a lot of pain, seroma (the building up of fluid) and bruising to the affected area. Patients tend to want to protect or “guard” there tummy, which can lead to longer recovery time. One of the best ways to quickly recover from this surgery, is to use an effective Abdominal Binder that compresses the area and helps hold and compress the tissues together to assist the healing process. Most Abdominal Binders are however, rather uncomfortable and rigid structures – okay if they are to make you look slimmer and help to get into that particular dress, but not very good for post-surgical recovery. Until NOW! Design Veronique have launched the all new #345-9 and #355-9 for female and male patients Abdominal post-op care. Using a unique cotton fabric 9″ (23cm) panel structure, with a full length Velcro fastening, the binder can be fitted to all sizes and the amount of compression adjusted easily and on a daily base, that will allow you to remain in comfort whilst you assist and recover from surgery.
