Other Post-Surgical Garments and Aids: Enhancing Your Healing
In addition to the aforementioned garments, specialized post-surgical aids can enhance your healing process.
Silicone Scar Sheets:
These sheets are effective in treating scars after surgeries, promoting skin healing, and reducing scarring.
You can also use them on existing scars that require further improvement.
Consult your doctor to determine if silicone scar sheets are suitable for your recovery.
If you undergo cosmetic surgery, you might require lipo foam during your recovery.
Placed under your compression garment, lipo foam provides smooth compression over the treated area, aids uniform healing, and reduces bruising and swelling.
