Compression Garment Extension

Compression Garment Extension

During the recuperation period after cosmetic surgery, inflammation is a common problem and choosing the right size for post surgery compression garments can be very difficult. Improperly fitting compression garments can undermine the successful outcome of the surgery. The extent of swelling and the amount of time the inflammation lasts varies from patient to patient. There is no standard measurement to evaluate or anticipate the degree or duration of inflammation a patient will experience. For this reason, the Compression Garment Extension was designed to help our customers obtain the proper compression garment size and fit during their surgery recovery period. The Compression Garment Extension allows to you to make a compression garment bigger initially and then adjust the size down as the swelling reduces until such time as the extension is no longer required. The Extension Garment immediately extends your compression garment two to three sizes larger. As the inflammation decreases, the patient can adjust the Faja Compression Garment Extension to maintain a proper fit.

The Compression Garment Extension is designed to be used with Maria E brand hooks style compression garments, specifically styles 9142, 9152, 9182 and 9334.

Why you should wear a faja colombiana post-surgery after giving birth

For nine months your body has been stretching, torn and spread, during pregnancy you will gain between 9-12 kilograms of weight. You will also increase at least 2 sizes, but in the end all of this sacrifice will be worth it to see the new beginning of your life.

You probably won’t return to your pre-pregnancy weight for some time, but you will begin to lose a significant amount of weight immediately after delivery. Even subtracting between 7 to 8 pounds of the baby, about a pound or so of placenta, and another few pounds of blood and amniotic fluid lost is not enough to return your body to the same size you used to be before your pregnancy. So it is time to start working.

Powernet Smart Material for Fajas Girdles

Powernet is a material that recently started to be used in shape wear.  In the past, powernet was used on prescription items for burned patients to help restore elasticity in the burned area; also, powernet was the first material used in varicose veins patients to help reduce and alleviate bulging.  Also, powernet is used as an orthopedic garment.

Today this material is incorporated in the manufacturing of post-surgery and post-partum girdles because it has many benefits:
