FAQ General

Do I need a second stage garment?

You will need a second stage garment for 6 weeks after your surgery. However this decision varies from patient to patient so it is best to ask your surgeon exactly when he thinks you should begin wearing your second stage garments.

How do I wash my garments?

All macom® products should be washed by hand, at a maximum temperature of 30°C. They should be air-dried. Bleach and fabric conditioner should never be used on the products. Please do not tumble dry, iron or dry clean the garments as this may lead to permanent alteration of their shape and a loss of elasticity. Do not remove stains with solvents.

If I need a second stage garment, when should I start wearing it?

We usually recommend starting your second stage garments 8 weeks after surgery. However, it is best to ask your Doctor when they think it best for you to begin.

When can I stop using my garment?

There is no exact science; usually you will stop wearing your first stage garments 8 weeks after surgery. This can however differ from patient to patient so it is best to ask you surgeon when he thinks you are ready.
