About Compression Garments - Medical Surgical Compression Garments
Bella-Jane's top-of-the-line surgical compression garments and body shapers are classified into three categories: Medical (Stage One), Aesthetic (Stage Two) and Pregnancy/Maternity. Many physicians recommend Bella-Jane surgical compression garments and body shapers because these garments serve as highly effective and beneficial compression wear.
Our garments are made of a specially developed material composed of 90% polyamide and 10% spandex (Lycra). The material has just the right properties because it is breathable, hypoallergenic, doesn’t hold body heat, maintains its compression and provides the comfort needed both at the time of surgery, post-surgery and for its continued use on a daily basis. The garments are latex free. Our body shapers and surgical compression garments are handmade with a perfection and quality control that guarantees a perfect fit without limiting body movement. Because our body shapers provide a precise, scientifically determined amount of compression, they are ideal for a wide range of therapeutic and preventative indications. They are also the most natural way to maintain the elegance, health and beauty of the body.
|* Bella-Jane Stage One surgical compression garments are recommended for use during the first days following surgery because they have a hook-and-eye closure that permits an easy fitting. These include: compression vests, liposuction girdles, bras and body suits for use following cosmetic and plastic surgery, liposuction, breast surgery and reconstruction and tummy tucks. We also feature garments for post-surgical therapy to the upper body, lower body, legs, arms, hands, face and neck. One cosmetic surgeon who endorses Bella-Jane compression garments explains the benefits of our garments, "Patients in post-surgery mode usually will have swelling, especially in the surgery area, and this will cause discomfort and limit the person's movement and activities. The compression garment inhibits the accumulation of body fluids and promotes the patient's comfort and ability to return to normal activities quickly."
"Bella-Jane surgical compression garments are great for postoperative liposuction to aid in the retraction and accommodation of the skin, drainage of bruises and edemas, pain relief and improved healing of the skin", one surgeon told us, and added "I don't perform a liposuction procedure unless I know the patient will be using a liposuction girdle."
|* Bella-Jane Stage Two aesthetic garments and body shapers are used when the healing process has progressed to the point that a pull-down or pull-up garment can easily be fitted onto the body, usually two to three weeks post surgery. These versatile body shapers aid in healing, weight reduction and general wellness. Aesthetic garments also are used to shape the body, support targeted body sections, improve body posture, assist the healing and treatment of skin burns, and increase blood circulation. They also help reduce flabbiness and cellulite. For most of these conditions, a medical Stage One garment can be used just as well as a Stage Two; it's basically a matter of personal preference. One orthopedic surgeon says he recommends Bella-Jane compression garments "because they are adjustable". "If the garment isn't adjusted to the body," he said, "it will loose its effectiveness. This is an advantage offered by Bella-Jane. Its garments are adjustable for use in the post-operative phase."|
|* Bella-Jane Pregnancy and Maternity garments are designed to assist the pregnant woman in carrying the weight of the unborn child and to help her bring back her body to its original shape during the postpartum stage. One physician says compression garments are "very important in avoiding the formation of loose skin."|
"A Great Healing Resource"
Another plastic surgeon said Bella-Jane surgical compression garments "have yielded very good results to the point that patients can discontinue the use of anti-inflammatory, analgesic and muscle relaxant drugs, which is a very positive outcome, given the well-documented unwanted side effects of these drugs. So we count on Bella-Jane products like the Body Suits and Girdles as a great healing resource. I can say that 90% of my patients return to their normal activities and are very satisfied with the treatment outcomes as long as they use these garments regularly."
