Table of Contents

When you start preparing for your tummy tuck surgery, you will surely spend some time researching fajas – which brand to buy and how to pick the right size. So, how tight should a faja be after a tummy tuck? Let’s dive into this topic – you’ll find all the answers you’re looking for in the text below. Discover Navanah’s range of fajas, designed to provide the perfect balance of compression and comfort. Ensure a snug fit without compromising on safety or ease.

Why Fit Matters

Wearing a faja isn’t a fashion statement – this compression garment is a vital post-op supply that will drastically affect recovery and the outcome of your tummy tuck. It’s crucial for proper healing. However, in order to do its job, a faja needs to be properly fitted – the size of the garment is very important. 

What Are Some Common Mistakes You Should Avoid

If it’s too loose, it won’t work well – it won’t provide the necessary pressure to the body. If it’s too tight, it can be uncomfortable and even dangerous – it might obstruct your circulation. So, fit matters. Plus, keep in mind that you’ll be wearing a faja for several weeks non-stop – you won’t be able to sleep without it until your doctor gives you the green light for that. It’s best if the garment fits you well and feels comfortable – otherwise, you’d have a few very long weeks. 

How to Determine the Right Tightness?

Before you go in for surgery, you will have a pre-op fitting where your doctor will determine what size faja you will need afterward. Keep in mind that this will be just a rough estimate, and it may turn out you need a different size. The surgeon will be able to determine the actual size after the procedure. They will give you advice on wearing compression garments and emphasize the importance of this post-op supply. 

What Are Some Common Mistakes You Should Avoid?

The most common mistake is picking a garment that’s too tight for you – it’s hard to predict how swollen you will be after surgery, so it’s not uncommon for patients to buy fajas that are too small. A good rule of thumb that can help you determine if you’re wearing the right-sized faja is this one – if you can put your hand underneath the faja and it doesn’t feel too tight, the size is right. If you have to use a bit of force to place your hand underneath the garment, it’s the wrong size. Another way you can determine if the faja is too tight is if the garment starts to roll down before you zip it – this means you need a bigger size.
