Scar treatment after tummy tuck
After abdominal wall correction, scars in the deep skin layer develop into the most superficial layer. On this page we show how an arm with edema can be treated with Easytape® Lymph & Scar tape. The tape supports the balance between the generation and removal of fluid in the lymphatic system. It supports safe, effective and pain-free lymphatic drainage, edema therapy and scar treatment.
What is the effect of scar taping?
Taping a scar can make it more smooth and less noticeable. Before Easytape® is applied, a treatment takes place, which consists of myofascial release techniques. For example, after a tummy tuck, there can occur blockages caused by scars, such as lymphedema. With myofascial release techniques, these blockages can be released in combination with Easytape®. The tape has the advantage that the treatment continues, because it supports the circulation in the lymphatic system with improved fluid drainage.
How to treat scars?
Taping of scars is explained in the infographic. We recommend cutting strips of Easytape® to size.
Step 1: Apply one stripe of Easytape® with 100% stretch (and 0% stretch at the ends) at an angle of 45º on the scar.
Step 2: Repeat step 1 and leave space of 2 or 3 centimeters between each stripe. Apply all over the scar.
Step 3: Apply Easytape® all over the scar. The tape lifts the skin and supports circulation for a smoother and better looking scar.
