Return to Wellness Following a C-Section

Returning to Wellness Following a C-Section can be enhanced by the use of a Postpartum Girdle.

Returning to Wellness Following a C-Section can be enhanced by the use of a Postpartum Girdle.

It’s been quite some time since I was in the position to try and improve my body after a C-Section.   With weight gain that was more than a few pounds, I must say finding my pre-baby-body was neither easy nor quick.  I did accomplish the task, well before my daughter reached middle school, but a far cry from the speedy return to perfection today’s celebrities seem to manage.

Returning to Wellness Following a C-Section can be enhanced by the use of a Postpartum Girdle.  Gwen Stefani and Angelina Jolie have both previously admitted to using a Postpartum Girdle.   It won’t cause amazing weight lose, but it does support, and boost confidence.   The compression from a girdle following a c-section offers similar benefits that compression wear offers patients following a tummy tuck or Abdominoplasty.

SG-802 Epi-Derm Silicone Gel C-Strip – available at http://www.contemporarydesigninc.com

Following a cesarean section, using a girdle or compression bandage isn’t medically necessary but it may offer support, and the feeling of firm muscle control, while you gain strength in your abdomen. If a girdle or bandage makes you feel better, more protected, and secure – then do it,   It won’t hurt to use one, even though it won’t necessarily help you lose weight or firm up.

Another modern miracle brought to us as a post-op recovery aid is Contemporary Design Inc’s SG-802: The Epi-Derm Silicone Gel C-Strip.  These Silicone strips designed for C-section (cesarean) and hysterectomy treatment site are gel strips for scars – shaped to match your incision configuration.

How Does it Work?

Scars need an ideal healing environment, meaning the appropriate balance of moisture and maximum exposure to oxygen. Epi-derm® silicone gel sheets for scars are fully-encapsulating. This means the silicone strips completely cover the scar treatment site, making Epi-derm® an ideal treatment for scars. Although the entire site is covered, Epi-derm® is  gas-permeable, allowing oxygen to enter while maintaining proper moisture levels — the ideal environment for healing scars.  Silicone sheets are tacky on the back and easy to apply. Epi-derm® silicone gel sheeting is the most effective, proven method of scar management available today.

Your skin needs extra care when recovering from surgical procedures. Often, excessive scarring may be prevented by using a Postpartum Girdle in conjunction with silicone sheeting to assist in flattening of scars. The Postpartum garment can be worn up to 24 hours each day.  A perfect plan for C-Section Recovery!
