IMPORTANT TIP - Wear & Wash Routine: Due to the need to wear compression garments continuously for long periods of time, it is recommended that at least two garments are purchased. This will allow one to be washed and air-dried while the other is being worn. That way, you will always have a fresh garment to change into.
Sizing: Ensuring a good fit of your compression garment is essential, so we recommend that you try your garment on when you receive it, prior to surgery. Check that it provides the required compression while remaining comfortable. It is important to do this well in advance of your procedure to allow time for exchanges if needed. Please note that we cannot accept returns of garments that have been used post-surgery.
Garment Care: RECOVA's compression garments can be machine or hand-washed at a maximum temperature of 30°C. Do not use fabric conditioner as it may impair the performance of the fabric. Garments must be air dried to maintain their correct fit and strength of compression. Do not tumble dry, iron or dry clean compression garments, as this can damage the fabric. In the initial days after surgery it is possible that garments become stained. However, it is important not to treat garments with bleach as this will damage the fabric.
Main Functions of Post-Surgery Compression Garments:
To provide sustained pressure and support to aid recovery;
To improve comfort, control pain and reduce swelling (oedema);
To improve body contouring and skin retraction (i.e. minimise sagging);
To promote effective blood circulation in the affected area;
To help your body flush out fluids and any potentially harmful toxins;
To minimise the risk of complications (e.g. infection or thrombosis)
