Stacie Isler, our plastic surgery PA, demonstrates how to place an abdominal binder after tummy tuck in this instructional video.
How To Place an Abdominal Binder After Tummy Tuck Surgery:
- This is a post-abdominoplasty binder. The inside has no seam, while the outside has a seam and has velcro.
- The objective when applying the abdominal binder is to achieve compression around the surgical site. It should be more snug when possible. The binder should be smooth without any folds.
- We demonstrate the two-person technique in this video. Sometimes it’s advantageous and more compression can be applied when there is an assistant.
- The binder should be comfortable and should be over the operated area, it should not be impinging on the lower breasts and it should not be impinging on the hips.
