Do Compression Garments Prevent Subcutaneous Edema After Abdominoplasty?

Background: The main drawbacks of wearing a compression garment following abdominoplasty are an increase in intra-abdominal pressure and the threat of venous stasis. On the one hand, garment wearing can raise the risk of venous thromboembolism. Aims: Objectives: To determine the success of compression garments in reducing subcutaneous edema after abdominoplasty, it was necessary to assess the effect of abdominoplasty. Results The no-garment group displayed a trend toward lower mean waist circumference at 29 days following abdominoplasty and substantial lower WC after postoperative day 35, compared to garment group averages. In the no-garment group, the mean total body water level was marginally lower than in the clothing industry seven days after surgery. After 24 days of surgery, patients who did not wear a compression garment after abdominoplasty had less subcutaneous edema formation after 24 days than those who did not wear the garment.

Patient-reported Outcomes of Scar Impact: Comparing of Abdominoplasty, Breast Surgery, and Facial Surgery Patients.

Method 2 A total of 901 patients from five clinics completed the SCAR-Q and Career/Sexual Well-being assessments by phone or email, with a higher score indicating a more positive scar rating and a more positive fear perception. The 901 patients, 38. 1%, underwent abdominoplasty surgery, 38. 1% breast reduction, 38. 9% breast lift, and 3. 9% breast augmentation resulted. Breast augmentation SCAR-Q scores and facial surgery were significantly higher than those of abdominoplasty patients. Results for abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, and facial surgery patients after surgery were positively linked with improved symptom scale scores for abdominoplasty, breast augmentation, and facial surgery patients, but not for other surgical procedures. Conclusions This is the first report to show that breast augmentation and facial surgery patients have a more positive picture of their scars in terms of appearance, symptoms, psychosocial, career, and sexual well-being affect than abdominoplasty patients.
