The baby is the most important thing to most of us, but taking care of yourself means you can get back to baby in comfort. Think about it! You wouldn’t be surprised 6 weeks after knee surgery to be sore at the end of a long day.Take care of your cesarean recovery the same way. Learn below what is going on during recovery so you can empower yourself and your recovery.
The bulge is swelling around the incision area and is normal as long as its improving. This is our #1 priority. Research shows that edema relates to pain and scarring (1,2,3 ) so C-Panty was designed to help both.
Yup. This is AFTER delivery. The post baby belly also had a lot of tissue handling during surgery so its important, but not as critical as the incision. Tummy support has also been shown to help mobility (4). We support the tummy as our #2 priority.
Another factor is scarring. Sure, most scars improve over time but why not minimize it especially since studies show symptomatic scars are common after c-sections (5,6). The key is scarring changes over months, so a long term solution is needed here.
C-Panty has a patented design that supports the incision most. You can see here our combined compression pattern and sewn in panel helps to banish the bulge and control swelling. With swelling causing pain and scarring, this is a key design feature for C-Panty.
C-Panty's lesser abdominal support considers the weak incision area below. Our abdominal support is also gentle and measured to be at a safe post-operative compression level because too much compression can impede healing.
Silicone is proven to decrease scars and keloids (7 8). Medical silicone holds in your own moisture and provides a smooth layer over the incision. No foreign creams soaking in. Scars mature for up to a year and our silicone does not need to be replaced so you save money and have a one step solution.
Binders alone push on the tummy forcing fluid down into the weak incision area. Pulled down to cover the incision, they block your hips from sitting and walking. All that on and off isn't great for recovery. C-Panty is on for the day!
C-Panty has more support at the incision and less at the tummy. Others focus above , with forces downward into the incision area, increasing the dreaded bulge. Notice other options have bands, reinforced fabric or fasteners the tummy. pressing downward. Our patented design avoids this pattern.
The "doesn't hurt doesn't help option". Would you leave that knee surgery with mesh or mommy brand loose panties around your incision? Us either! We'd have clinically designed support and that is what C-Panty offers.
