What is a faja or compression garment?

A faja is a post-surgical compression garment that will need to be worn to assist with inflammation and sculpting during your recovery period. It is an absolute necessity to wear a well fitted faja post-surgery for up to six – ten weeks. You will need at least two faja’s during your post-op recovery period.

These compression garments are designed to help the body recover faster by minimizing swelling during the healing process. They are usually tighter than traditional high compression fajas, so they serve to improve blood circulation and stimulate tissue regeneration.

What is stage 2 compression garment?

Stage one lasts for about 2-3 weeks post-op, it is time to move onto stage two.

Once moving onto stage two, the body has healed somewhat but still requires support and lighter compression. We strongly recommend the use of a stage two compression in order to deliver the best possible surgical results.

When should I measure myself?

For your custom-made Stage two Faja our recommendation is that you measure yourself after your surgical procedure to ensure the best possible fit. We recommend measuring at 4- or 5-days post-op, after your massage if possible.

How to measure your stage two compression garment?

You’ll need a tape measure and a pen. In order to obtain the best-fitting garment, resist the urge to flex, adjust your posture, or suck in your stomach. It is best to be measured without any clothing and first thing in the morning.

Stand sideways towards a mirror in order to see that the tape measure is level and at the correct position for the measurement. The tape measure should not dig into the skin and should not be loose or slide down. Please see the measurement instructions.

Please follow these instructions and use the image as a guideline to take your measurements correctly:

Underbust: Pass the measuring tape under the bust. (1)

Waist: Measure the circumference of your waist. Use the tape to circle your waist (sort of like a belt would) at your natural waistline, which is located above your belly button and below your rib cage. (If you bend to the side, the crease that forms is your natural waistline.) Don’t suck in your stomach, or you’ll get a false measurement. If you generally wear your clothes below your waist, take that measurement as well. (2)

Torso: Measure from under your breast until the middle of your vagina. (3)

Hip: Measure the circumference of your hips. Start at one hip and wrap the tape measure around your rear, around the other hip, and back to where you started. Make sure the tape is over the largest part of your buttocks. Because making sure the tape is level back there can be hard, try to do it in front of a mirror. (4)

Thigh: measure the circumference of the widest part of your thigh (5)

For Shapers With Sleeves

Please follow these instructions and use the image as a guideline to take your measurements correctly.

Measure the circumference at the highest part of the shoulder all around the armpit and on the desired length of the sleeve.

For the length measure from where the arm begins (at the top of the shoulder) to the desire length.
