Why should I wear a corset after my abdominoplasty?
After the abdominoplasty, we place dressings on the patient, along with an elastic corset, also known as girdle.
The corset is really useful in an abdominoplasty, and should perfectly and comfortably fit the patient’s body, without being too tight.
The corset supports the abdominal region while you seat, get up, take a deep breath, etc., while at the same time it supports your back and belly.
Furthermore, it reduces movement and friction on the abdominal region, while it prevents dilation and fluid accumulation.
Overall, you will be able to get up more easily, feel better, and possibly recover faster. You should wear this corset for about 4 weeks, which will not give you any hard time with how your clothes fit.
