Epifoam

epifoampad

Recommended by more surgeons than any other compression foam! Epi-foam® offers patients and surgeons an important evolution in liposuction recovery. Epi-foam pads and rolls provide a superior platform over which to apply post-operative compression garments. The unique silicone-gel surface provides a gentle adherent patient interface that helps avoid the problems associated with more aggressively adherent foam pads.

Features
  • The premier compression foam in the industry
  • PROPERLY FINISHED: Clean, straight cut edges help prevent depressed or raised areas, and reduces the chance of blood pooling from uneven compression
  • Preferred choice for superior comfort under post-operative compression garments.
  • Reduces post-operative bruising & swelling
  • Provides uniform compression distribution
  • Mimimizes folds and creases, resulting in smoother/flatter overall appearance
  • Easy to apply and shape to 3-dimensional contours
  • Latex-free silicone gel and polyurethane foam
  • Porous silicone-gel allows proper oxygen flow
  • Specifically designed for Liposuction and Body Contouring procedures
  • Ideal following liposuction of the arms, chin, abdomen, thighs and other areas where uniform healing is desired

LEARN WHY MORE PHYSICIANS RECOMMEND EPIFOAM

It may surprise you to know that a popular compression foam, Reston, is simply low density, hardware store pipe insulation that is being remarketed as compression foam.

PROPER COMPRESSION DISTRIBUTION

unnamed (2)The low density of Reston allows it to compress too easily, creating undesirable effects from uneven compression distribution. Epifoam is a high-density foam,
specifically designed to evenly distribute the forces of compression garments for optimal results. Improving compression distribution can assist in smoothing the skin and helping to reduce the “wavering” or “rippling” effect frequently associated with liposuction.  It can also help in reducing post-operative bruising and swelling.

A PROPER MOISTURE BARRIER

unnamed (3)Additionally, the open-cell structure of Reston allows moisture and fluids to saturate the foam, introducing the risk of infection and other complications. Closed-cell Epifoam provides an effective moisture barrier, preventing moisture or fluids from entering the foam, maintaining a healthy healing environment. Unprecedented patient comfort is achieved by using only the most advanced soft, small cell, polyurethane materials to create the compression barrier between the patient’s skin and the post-operative garment.  Polyurethane foam also provides for exceptional conformance to three-dimensional contours such as hips, waist, thighs, and chins.

PROPER ADHESION

unnamed (1)
Finally, the adhesive used with Reston is much too aggressive, so much that when it is removed, it often pulls the skin hard enough to detach it from underlying tissue that is trying to heal and reattach to the skin. Epi-Foam adheres gently to the skin by using the highest quality medical grade silicone. The adhesion is just enough to keep the pad in place, thus minimizing blistering or shearing.  Furthermore, silicone won’t stick to the skin or cause pain and discomfort when removed, as typically experienced when using Reston.
