An abdominal binder is a wide compression belt that encircles your abdomen. Abdominal binders come in many sizes and widths. Most are made from elastic and have Velcro or hook and loop closures. Some abdominal binders offer secondary lumbar support. Others have straps that hold surgical drainage tubes in place.
An abdominal binder may be used to speed-up the recovery process after abdominal surgery. Your doctor may recommend that you wear an abdominal binder after:
- a caesarean section
- bariatric surgery
- an exploratory laparotomy
- a hysterectomy
- a tummy tuck
- spinal surgery
- A carefully-positioned abdominal binder may be used in people with spinal cord injury to help:
- support the abdomen
- maintain abdominal pressure
- improve respiratory function
