Mistakes After Surgery

• • •🔹️Compression Too Soon🔹️•There is a reason there are stages among faja/compression garment use (Stage 1-3). It's important to listen to your body not everyone heals the same or transitions through recovery the same. Be mindful of how soon is too soon to add waist trainers, or how soon you overwhelm your body with boards and lipofoams. Smaller compression garment isn't always better.
