Garments aid in healing and optimizing the results of your surgery. After surgery you will be required to wear a supportive and/or compression garment to provide support, reduce fluid build up, swelling, bruising and helps increase circulation. We keep a small inventory in the office for your convenience and you can order online using the links below each picture.

Arnica helps with pain, swelling and bruising, while silicone gel and strips aid in scar refinement and appearance. Arnica is available online and Silagen is exclusively sold through physicians.
For the DIEP flap reconstruction, we strongly recommend a fully automated recliner (lift chair) to sleep in for at least 6 weeks. If you do not already own an automatic recliner, you may find it helpful to rent one for the short time that it will be needed.
