When to use the KPad 02?
- KPad is a unisex foam insertion that can be worn underneath any compression garment covering the operated region
- The perfect combination of comfort and safety after a surgery such as tummy tuck, any liposuction procedure or caesarean delivery
- Unisize (24 cm x 19 cm)
- KPad promotes efficient recovery and helps to avoid fluid retention following skin detachment procedures (e.g., liposuction, tummy tucks and caesarean deliveries)
- KPad helps to minimize the risk of hematoma, prevents bruising & optimizes lymphatic drainage by providing gentle compression and cushioning for smoother results
- The KPad; also, commonly known as Lipofoam; is a Liposuction Sponge ergonomically shaped foam pad that provides additional pressure where needed. It also improves comfort after your liposuction or body contouring procedure and crucially, provides a smooth surface against your skin. Lipofoam is used to enhance your results and can help reduce the build-up of fluids in stubborn areas; reduce bruising and hematoma (where a mass of blood can collect outside of the blood vessels and force themselves into the inter-tissue layers)
- The material has been awarded OEKO-TEX® certificate, which guarantees the absence of harmful or allergenic substances (such as latex)
- Material composition: 56 % POLYURETHANE, 44 % COTTON
- Avoid applying creams, ointments, and liquids to the skin before using the bandage. Application of products to the skin may cause damage to the structure of the material upon contact. The damaged material structure can cause skin discoloration
1. Before you start, remove all your clothes except for underwear so that the measurement is not distorted – it is the only way to get the most accurate results. Also, it is important to stand upright, have a loose belly and breathe naturally.
2. When the measurements are taken, the measuring tape must be in a horizontal position. The tape must not point downwards or upwards so as not to distort the measurements.
3. When taking measurements, do not tighten the tape around your body, it must touch the body, but must not be too tight or too loose.
4. Write all measurements on paper and re-measure again for accuracy.
Please, measure yourself couple of times to be sure of your sizing in each body area. Take note of your measurements pre-surgery as this can be referred to later, to check the healing progress and to indicate where the post-surgery Oedema is moving to.
Do you fall in between sizes?
For most women, hips are the widest body part. If your hips fall into a higher size category than your waist, you should always choose the size that is applicable to your hips. If on the other hand, your hip measurements fall into a smaller size than your waist measurement (prior to a surgery), then you would go down a size in the waist to reflect the hip measurements.
Please consult the sizing charts if in any doubt.
