C-Panty Benefits of Anatomic Compression

C-Panty is the only after c-section recovery panty with anatomic compression combined with FDA-approved medical grade silicone. It’s patented design offers convenient postpartum care to help speed recovery, improve comfort and reduce scarring after cesarean delivery.

  • Post-surgical compression is recommended to support weakened tissue and control swelling after surgery.
  • C-Panty’s anatomic compression is focused peri-incisionally to reduce swelling, sensitivity and tenderness.
  • Higher cut models offer added abdominal support for weakened tissues and address third space fluid collection.
  • Unlike abdominal binders, C-Panty covers the incisional area without blocking hip motion and does not require frequent on and off, offering consistent, low-grade support to best address surgical recovery.
  • Silicone is the only FDA approved material to treat scars. C-Panty’s interior silicone panel is exclusively designed to cover to the Pfannensteil (c-section) incision.
  • Medical grade silicone maintains moisture content around the incision addressing scarring and its symptoms such as redness, itching and burning.
  • C-Panty’s compression plus silicone is the FDA and plastic surgery standard of care for scarring while its support meets patients’ edema, comfort and support needs. C-Panty provides a one step, patented, pull on and go recovery system that addresses short and long term recovery needs for swelling, comfort, support and scarring.
