Why would I need a compression insert after surgery?
Compression inserts are worn beneath the compression garment, in contact with the skin, providing gentle, uniform and continuous compression thus helping to keep the treated area flat. The inserts help to decrease dead space, and facilitate the retraction of the skin post detachment. The insert provides support to the surgical site and helps to avoid fluid retention, minimising the risk of haematomas, alleviating the bruising & optimizing lymphatic drainage post procedure.
