About Tummy Tuck

A Tummy Tuck is also known as an Abdominoplasty

From mothers who are done having children, to men and women who have lost a significant amount of weight, a tummy tuck (as well as a “mini tummy tuck”) can be the perfect surgical solution to help restore a smoother & slimmer profile.

Once you’ve decided that the tummy tuck procedure is the best fit to properly address your unique needs and concerns, your surgeon and the medical team will have a conversation with you about your recovery during the pre-op appointment and on the day of your surgery.

The recovery period after abdominoplasty surgery is vital to achieving your long-term aesthetic goals – as the surgery itself. If you are not sure where to start, ContourMD® is here to help. The design of our tummy tuck compression garments are tailored to compliment your aesthetic goals and individual anatomy. ContourMD© provides high-quality tummy tuck compression garments that will cater to your individual needs with compassionate comfort, body contour and soothing relief to the skin.

The Stages of Healing

Learn about the stages of healing and what your body goes through after surgery to understand why the right tummy tuck compression garment is critical to reaching the results you are looking for.


Stage I Garment

1-2 weeks after surgery

The healing process begins immediately after your abdominoplasty surgery.

Once the procedure is finished, bandages, a compression garment and surgical drains are placed and adjusted to ensure proper fit by the surgeon or someone from the medical team. It is very beneficial to rest, relax, and let your body heal properly after surgery.

A Stage I tummy tuck compression garment promotes healing by lessening the amount of fluid build-up, reducing swelling, and preventing bruising. It can provide stability to the treated areas, while also keeping the surgical site together. This will improve the outcome of the body’s contour, and minimize the appearance of scarring. The compression garment will also reduce the risk of infection. During Stage I, you should wear this garment at all times, except when you’re either bathing or in the shower.

Stage II Garment

2-8 weeks after Stage I

Gradually, as you recover you should notice less and less fluid in the tissues.

This is when you will want to switch to Stage II for your tummy tuck compression garments.

A Stage II compression garment will help in keeping optimal compression on the treated area(s). This should improve your comfort level significantly, so you’re able to return to some lighter activities. Before your surgery, your plastic surgeon will go through all of this with you, and will also be given detailed post-op instructions. If instructions are followed and your abdominoplasty garment is properly worn, there will be noticeable and immediate improvement. It is crucial to wear your compression garment after surgery to achieve optimal results.

Stage III Garment

1-4 weeks after Stage II

Many patients aren’t ready to end the garment process, so they choose to wear a Stage III garment for comfort and to optimize their results.

This stage is about maintaining an overall look and feel that is desired by the patient. Stage III garments, also known as Shapewear are mainly worn by patients who want their most desired look.
