Binders for lower body lift

In our San Francisco area practice we perform body lifts and body contouring after bariatric surgery quite commonly. Abdominal binders and compression garments are used to minimize swelling, help with skin retraction and sometime improve patient comfort. It is something that is important to use at the direction of your physician however. Garments that are too tight or are inappropriate for your type of surgery may restrict blood flow and cause healing problems.
