Liposuction, also called “lipo,” can be a life-changing procedure.
Many people struggle with excess fat. So it’s no wonder that liposuction is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries in the world.
Once you’ve decided that the liposuction procedure is the best fit to properly address your unique needs and concerns, your surgeon and the medical team will have a conversation with you about your recovery during the pre-op appointment and on the day of your surgery.
The recovery period after liposuction surgery is vital to achieving your long-term aesthetic goals – as the surgery itself. If you are not sure where to start, ContourMD® is here to help. The design of our liposuction compression garments are tailored to compliment your aesthetic goals and individual anatomy. ContourMD© provides high-quality liposuction compression garments that will cater to your individual needs with compassionate comfort, body contour and soothing relief to the skin.
The Stages of Healing
Learn about the stages of healing and what your body goes through after surgery to understand why the right liposuction compression garment is critical to reaching the results you are looking for.
Stage I Garment
1-2 weeks after surgery
The healing process begins immediately after your liposuction surgery.
Once the procedure is finished, bandages, a compression garment and surgical drains are placed and adjusted to ensure proper fit by the surgeon or someone from the medical team. It is very beneficial to rest, relax, and let your body heal properly after surgery.
A Stage I liposuction compression garment promotes healing by lessening the amount of fluid build-up, reducing swelling, and preventing bruising. It can provide stability to the treated areas, while also keeping the surgical site together. This will improve the outcome of the body’s contour, and minimize the appearance of scarring. The compression garment will also reduce the risk of infection. During Stage I, you should wear this garment at all times, except when you’re either bathing or in the shower.

Stage II Garment
2-8 weeks after Stage I
Gradually, as you recover you should notice less and less fluid in the tissues.
This is when you will want to switch to Stage II for your liposuction compression garments.
A Stage II compression garment will help in keeping optimal compression on the treated area(s). This should improve your comfort level significantly, so you’re able to return to some lighter activities. Before your surgery, your plastic surgeon will go through all of this with you, and will also be given detailed post-op instructions. If instructions are followed and your liposuction garment is properly worn, there will be noticeable and immediate improvement. It is crucial to wear your compression garment after surgery to achieve optimal results.

Stage III Garment
Many patients aren’t ready to end the garment process, so they choose to wear a Stage III garment for comfort and to optimize their results.
This stage is about maintaining an overall look and feel that is desired by the patient. Stage III garments, also known as Shapewear are mainly worn by patients who want their most desired look.

Liposuction compression garments can provide optimal results for your body’s contour. It can minimize the appearance of scarring and help reduce complications. However, depending on the surgical techniques, your aesthetic goals and individual anatomy, the healing process can vary widely between patients.
Some of the overall benefits of wearing a liposuction compression garment includes improving blood circulation, managing fluids, optimizing and decreasing recovery time, less pain and discomfort during the healing process, reducing swelling and bruising, and shaping and contouring your results.
ContourMD© compression garments are designed to comfortably assist in your journey to recovery.
Depending on the type of liposuction and the location(s) of the surgical site, liposuction surgery can be performed under local, sedation or general anesthesia, and can last between 2 to 3 hours.
When your surgical procedure is finished, a compression garment and surgical drains are placed by the surgeon or someone from the medical team. The surgeon prescribes pain medication(s) to minimize any discomfort after surgery. Patients will experience some swelling and bruising, but this will subside within a few weeks. Depending on your surgeon’s instructions, it usually takes around 6 weeks to fully recover, during which time it is not recommended you perform any strenuous physical activities. But with the right liposuction compression garments, aftercare, and ongoing maintenance, you can enjoy your results for years!
What is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a safe surgical procedure that can slim and reshape the body by the method of removing excess fat. Often, it is performed in conjunction with other plastic surgery procedures, as liposuction alone cannot both remove fat and lift or remove any excess skin. And contrary to popular belief, liposuction is not a “quick fix” for obesity (as nothing can substitute for proper diet and exercise). It’s also a misconception that liposuction will completely get rid of cellulite. (The cause of cellulite is not excess fat alone, but a combination of fibrous bands that stretch across the skin).
Liposuction surgery can manage and help with the following cosmetic concerns:
