Ogee Faja: Stage 1 or Stage 2 Faja?
The only real difference between a stage 1 and stage 2 faja is the garment’s amount of compression. Because The Ogee Faja has Powernet and varying levels of compression throughout, it is a one-size-fits-all faja. Powernet is the faja’s firm mesh fabric that provides the perfect textile trifecta: strength, durability and elasticity,
The Ogee Faja can be used as both a stage 1 and 2 faja because of the difference in compression – lighter through the hips, buttocks and legs and more through the back, waist and key area. The varying compression offers just the right amount in each area to ensure excellent results throughout recovery.
Further, because of its adjustable hook and eye enclosure (four levels), you can continue cinching throughout your journey – all you do is select the tighter hook and eye, just like you would with a bra. This design choice offers firm but gradual compression. It is important to remember that your garment should always fit snuggly but not too tight.
Another factor to consider is fit post-surgery. During a BBL, nearly your entire body will experience changes, which means the garment you purchase, based on your measurements before surgery, will fit a lot differently afterward.
It’s recommended that as your body heals and changes that you get your Ogee Faja altered so that it always fits properly. Patients should expect to schedule their first visit for alterations after the first week of recovery. Please keep in mind compression garments that fit too tightly can cause blood supply issues that often result in a loss of fat and volume.
Finally, if at any point you ever find that your garment is fitting too loosely, even with alterations, it’s advised that you purchase a new, smaller size to ensure the best fit and results.
