What Are Your Favorite Faja Tips?

Updated: Jul 29, 2022

Mindful faja tips during your post-surgical recovery process.

From my years of experience with post-surgical garments, I've learned those who follow directions, stay consistent, and listen to their body, have the best results.

Although, these tips are key, quality is most important.

Tip #1 - Quality

When choosing your faja, be sure to choose medical grade quality. Medical grade material is import when molding your shape. If your garment lacks the right compression you will not maintain your shape.

Tip #2 - Consistency

Decide that you've made the decision to be consistent. According to most surgeons, you should be ready to transition to your stage 2 garment after 12 days or once your garment is no longer compressing.

"Immediately, stop wearing it. Let’s act as if it never existed " !

Once you have transitioned to stage 2, it’s important to stop wearing your stage 1. Immediately, stop wearing it, let’s act as if it never existed!! No, not even as a backup. Your compression must be consistent.

Tip #3 - Timing

When it comes to transitioning your fajas, time is of the essence. The sooner you're in a well-fitting faja, the better! Your faja is your mold, it's important to have it on hand when it's needed to prevent additional swelling. Once the boards and foams start shifting…it’s time to go tighter!

Tip #4- More Than 1

Do you have just 1 pair of underwear? Your Faja is an intimate garment. Due to sanitary purposes, I would highly suggest having at least 2 garments.

Tip #5 - Mixing

Trying different faja brands is not in your best interest. Your skin is most impressionable during this time, it’s important to make sure you’re wearing the most appropriate garment. Some brands have seem placements that will cause permanent indentation . It’s important to stick with The Faja Lady brand.
