Corset Use and Duration after Liposuction


Corset Use and Duration after Liposuction

After liposuction, it is crucial to wear a corset. Your doctor, who performed the surgery, will provide you with this information. “Remember, the doctor who performed your surgery knows your body intimately. They know exactly how much fat was removed, which areas underwent liposuction, where the resistance was inserted, and all the positive and negative aspects of the surgery. Therefore, he will tell you in detail how long you should wear your corset after lipo, the importance of the corset, the benefits and duration of wearing a Colombian corset.”

Clinic Health Beauty explains to its liposuction patients the duration of corset usage with the following procedure. Each doctor or clinic may have a unique procedure.

Wearing a Corset After Liposuction

After your liposuction surgery, you will be fitted with a specialized corset designed for the specific areas treated. For example, if you had arm liposuction, you will wear an arm corset, and if you had 360-degree liposuction, you will wear a body corset. While the corset may not be bothersome during the first week after surgery, it is normal to become uncomfortable in the following weeks. Many patients express a desire to remove the corset as soon as possible.

Although corsets can be tight and overwhelming for patients, it is important for them to understand the benefits that corsets provide for the body. Let’s take a closer look at what the corset does after liposuction.

During liposuction surgery, localized fluids are injected into the body to facilitate the removal of fat. Vaser liposuction utilizes ultrasonic waves to liquefy the fat before it is removed. Following the procedure, corsets are used to prevent the fluids from entering unwanted spaces. The fluids naturally seek to exit the body through the drain area. Manual lymphatic drainage can be used to reduce fluid buildup outside the corset.

What is the Recommended Duration for Wearing a Corset After Liposuction?

Clinic Health Beauty recommends that liposuction patients wear the corset they used during the first week of surgery, followed by a Colombian corset for two months to achieve optimal body shaping. If a Colombian corset is not available, patients should wear a corset one or two sizes smaller than the one they wore during the second week.

After showering, put on your corset within 30 minutes.

Can the Corset be Removed While Sleeping?

We recommend wearing your corset day and night for 3-4 weeks. If it disturbs your sleep, you can remove it at night starting from the 4th week. Your first task in the morning should be to put on your corset.

Colombian corsets are designed to fit snugly and provide support, helping to correct body shape. Clinic Health Beauty recommends wearing Colombian corsets starting from the second week of treatment. Health assistants at Clinic Health Beauty are available to provide support.
