Liposuction:  How Shapewear Can Help You Heal Faster

After liposuction, one primary concern for women is that their skin will become stretched; also, their figure will not sculpt the way they expect. Liposuction is an aesthetic surgical procedure during which a small cut eliminates the body fat under the skin in specific areas of the body by using a hollow stainless steel tube.

Simply put, liposuction involves the medical reconstruction of the abdominal wall to remove excess skin and surgically shape up the abdomen and waist area.

During this procedure, the fat deposit is removed; the standard procedure is to leave the incision open to allow excess fluid and blood to drain from the wound and manage edema. It is essential that the tissue is kept in place and the wounds well covered.

As a result, to aid in the process of recovery after liposuction in the wound area, your doctor will cover it with absorbent dressings specially designed to reduce adherence to the wound and manage exudate.

This is where compression shapewear comes in place. This shapewear is in the form of leggings, shorts, or bodysuits designed with specific fabric to provide an optimum level of pressure on the area needing pressure.

The medical pads will be kept in place thanks to the post-liposuction shapewear you choose as your compression garment.

In addition, every woman wants to get in shape as quickly as humanly possible, right after pregnancy or a drastic weight loss, liposuction is often seen as the ultimate option for many ladies.

By wearing liposuction shapewear, this problem will be solved. Thanks to the compression, tender tissues will stay in place, plus they can heal and strengthen with the proper lifestyle routine, and any bandages will remain clean and protected.


Notice that I keep mentioning liposuction shapewear? These are specially designed to help you snap up into shape with the right amount of solid compression. Call them ‘the shapewear on a mission’; the compression on these types of shapewear are intentionally designed to help you along your journey to ‘fabulous’ – post-surgery.

Pro Tip: Never plan your surgical procedure without first purchasing your post-liposuction shapewear. (You will thank me later). Consider it not only as part of the journey to recovery but as part of the procedure itself because it aids in completing the process of structuring your new shape.

Improve the swelling, bruising, and pain.

It is easy to think your body will heal itself, but it needs some direction. Properly made surgical compression shapewears are to give the right amount of squeeze across your body. However, what does squeezing do? 

It controls swelling, plus it closes off all the tiny vessels called the capillaries that were disturbed during the procedure. These two functions help to reduce pain during recovery, and who doesn’t want to reduce pain?

Improves saggy skin.

Right? During liposuction, when fat holding up the skin is removed, it sags. Compression shapewear not only holds the skin in place, it also leads the skin down the correct path, post surgery – in a manner of speaking.

Compression helps your skin to shrink and contract in its soft or bruised state during healing. This results in your new slim, taut contour with a fabulous-looking skin. With compression shapewear you’re simply making sure the skin knows where it is supposed to go.


Correct use of compression garments cannot be over-emphasized after most liposuction procedures. Compression shapewear also helps to prevent post-surgical complications after liposuction.

Beyond three weeks, you can go without them in the evenings, wearing them only when needed for comfort and support. Again ask your doctor.
