Why Do I Need This Post Abdominal Surgery Girdle?
Wearing abdominal binders after surgery is a highly recommended practice for a number of procedures. Besides providing abdominal support after surgery, surgical binders also help limit pain by distributing pressure evenly across the abdomen. Wearing an after surgery abdominal binding can also speed healing by stimulating blood flow to the incision site. This compression also reduces swelling and/or edema.
Another added benefit of such after-surgery compression garments is that they can help improve poor posture and loss of balance. This brace will also help make you feel more comfortable getting back into the swing of things after you’ve endured the surgical procedure.
After-surgery compression garments are not used exclusively for such uses.

In fact, many back braces contain an abdominal compression element much like what you receive from this post-surgery abdominal binder.
