How Does This Abdominal Binder After Weight Loss Surgery Help Me Recover From…
A Tummy Tuck or Abdominoplasty Recovery?
Receiving a tummy tuck, otherwise known as abdominoplasty surgery helps remove the extra fat and skin you’re carrying around. This surgical procedure also helps smooth out your muscles, making them tougher and stronger. There are many individuals that receive this procedure, for example, women who have had a baby or after birth, those who have lost an extreme amount of weight causing your stomach to sag or hang after being obese, or after a hysterectomy.
Wearing a woman tummy tuck binder is a great tool to help your recovery process! Applying compression to your abdomen will help promote healing and reduce the swelling that you’ll experience after your surgery. This tummy tuck compression garment will also help prevent fluid from accumulating in your incision site, reducing the chance of infection.
Gastric Bypass Surgery?
Gastric bypass today remains a very popular surgical option for weight loss. Gastric bypass surgery basically shrinks and slims down the size of your stomach, which in turn helps control the amount of food you intake daily. It also helps bypass part of your digestive tract, lowering the absorption of food. Those who have tried to lose weight but can’t, those with a body mass index (or BMI) is 40 or greater, or those suffering from type 2 diabetes may qualify for this surgery.

Wearing a stomach binder after gastric bypass surgery has many benefits such as improving circulation in your abdominal region, hold your sagging skin and tissues in place, and promote good posture, limiting the stress placed on your stomach.
Liposuction Recovery? (Love Handle Removal)
Liposuction is another common procedure to help obese men and women lose weight. This procedure removes excess fat using a suction mechanism. Your doctor will suction around your stomach in the regions that have the fattest deposits and get rid of them. Liposuction helps reshape your body and help those problem areas.
A liposuction bandage for men’s belly assists an individual throughout the recovery and healing process. Applying a liposuction binder post procedure helps with the swelling, discomfort, and bruising that occurs. Typically, you should wear this compression bandage for a few weeks after your procedure, depending on your condition and how your body responded to liposuction.
Lap-band surgery involves placing a silicone band around the first part of your stomach. This surgery helps diminish your food intake, reducing the amount of food your body will need or want. Lap band surgery is a popular procedure because it’s considered minimally invasive and typically doesn’t have many side effects. Your doctor can also adjust your waistband after the procedure to help maximize the benefits.
Wearing a male abdominal support during lap band recovery can help support your stomach muscles and bring comfort to your abdomen. Abdominal binders after lap band surgery are great because it places compression on the location of where your doctor placed the port inside your stomach, reducing your swelling.
Gastric Sleeve Surgery?
Gastric sleeve surgery is often compared to lap band surgery as both procedures involve reducing the amount of food your stomach intakes. Gastric sleeve surgery involves removing part of your stomach, leaving only a portion of the top of your stomach. This is an irreversible procedure.
An abdominal girdle after gastric sleeve surgery is beneficial as it helps reduce edema (or swelling) while also helping the scar tissue form properly. Compression garments after gastric sleeve support your stomach muscles while you are recovering and trying to get back to normal.
