How do I know what size I am?

  • Before purchasing your new Esencia faja, you must be sized to determine the right fit for your unique body type. You’ll need a measuring tape and a pen. In order to obtain the best-measurements, DO NOT flex, adjust your posture, or suck in your stomach. It is best to be measured in your undergarments. To measure your waist .... To measure your chest

Fajas come in size “ extra small” (XS) to (4XL).Keep in mind that you will likely not be fit to the size you expect. Fajas tend to run very small, and we rarely have a patient that leaves in a size “xsmall.”

What is a customized faja?

Customized fajas depends on your Individual measurements,  size of hips, waist, bust.

 

Example:

 Hips Large - Waist XSmall 

Hips Large - Waist Medium 

Hips 2XL - Waist XL 

 

 How do I put on my Esencia Colombian faja?

  • When opening your new Esencia Shape-wear/Faja be sure to stretch your Shape-wear/Faja, while sitting place both legs through the openings and gently work the garment up your body, making sure the groin and genital area is aligned. It’s important to ensure the buttocks seam line sits in the crease of the buttocks, be extra careful and mindful of your fingernails while putting on your compression garment to avoid damaging the fabric. Once the garment is around your hips, adjust the position of the inseam so it runs just above your hip line. Next, while fastening the hooks, start from the bottom of the shapewear/faja and work your way to the top. When pulling to close the hooks, be sure to use your fingertips, not your nails. Once the hooks are completely closed, you’re ready to zip the zipper. Some girdles may not have zippers dependent on the options chosen by the customer.

* If you purchased a customized Shape-wear/Faja you may need to do a little extra stretching, customized Shape-wear usually come smaller on the waist therefor making it a little tougher to get up the hips. 

What’s the difference between Stage 1 & 2 fajas?

  • First stage garments are made using a softer material and they are usually worn for the first 1-21 days following your procedure. Our second stage garments are made using the highly innovative powernet fabric providing high compression to the required surgical site. The stage 2 faja is worn immediately after the stage one for a period between 6-12 months.

  • Your Stage 1 fajas should be worn for three weeks after your procedure. It is important that you try and wear your Stage 1 faja all the time. You may remove it to shower and to wash it but should put it on right after. Some patients choose to purchase two Stage 1 fajas so that they can wear their spare when the other one is washing and drying.
  • Sleeping in your Stage 1 faja is also important. If you can tolerate it, you should sleep in your lipo foams as well. However, you must remove your abdominal board at night.

How Long Should I Wear my Stage 2 Faja?

  • After you switch over to your Stage 2 faja, you should wear it for six months. You should plan to sleep in your Stage 2 faja as well. Throughout the entire day, your goal should be to have your Stage 2 faja at all hours except for when you are showering or washing your garment. You can discontinue all garments after six months, and cannot start waist training until you are done with your Stage 2 faja.
  • Can I Wear Undergarments Underneath my Stage 2 Faja?
    By the time you begin wearing your stage 2 faja, it should be OK to wear underwear beneath your garment. Take note of how your skin is healing to make sure there are no visible marks forming from the underwear.
