Snatched Body Faja Stage 1 & Stage 2 Faja: What’s The Difference?

You might be familiar with our best-selling Colombian Fajas, but do you know the difference between Stage 1 and Stage 2 Fajas? We'll give you a hint: it’s directly related to the necessary compression levels during recovery.

If you ever wondered how long to wear Stage 1 Fajas or when to switch to Stage 2 Fajas after a BBL, then keep reading.

  • Stage 1 fajas need to be worn right after plastic surgery for at least 6 weeks.
  • After 6 weeks, wear Stage 2 Fajas to continue shaping and contouring the body, or wear it as shapewear.
  • Stage 1 Fajas have a thicker material and more compression.
  • Stage 2 Fajas have a softer fabric and shorter length on the legs.

How Do Stage 1 and Stage 2 Fajas Work?

wondering about fajaLet's take for example Stage 1 Fajas. These are the fajas that your doctor orders wearing right after surgery. This high-compression garment will allow your wounds to heal, keeping your results intact, and reduce the likelihood of bruising, fluid retention, and bad shaping post-op.

So if you got a liposuction, BBL, or tummy-tuck, wearing a faja for 6 weeks would protect and sculpt your midsection, hips, and buttocks area. As for Stage 2 Fajas, you can wear it 6-weeks post-op if you still want something to help sculpt and shape your body after Stage 1.

A Stage 2 Faja is a custom product that can double up as a waist trainer. This faja helps with sculpting the waist, hips, and midsection further, but in a much less strict way. The emphasis with Stage 2 is light sculpting and a lot of shaping. We often recommend to our dolls that they can use Stage 2 Faja as regular shapewear.

Picking out the right stage of faja is an important step. And it's important to stop and consider that Stage 1 fajas are a medical necessity for those that just had their BBL, lipo, or tummy-tuck to help them heal during a crucial time.

So now that you know the difference between Stage 1 & Stage 2 Fajas, you can choose the best Faja for your post-op recovery.

Whether you got liposuction, a BBL, or tummy-tuck, fajas are essential accessories for recovery and getting the best end results. Making the right choice is most important for those that just got their surgery, and more casual for those that are 6 weeks into their recovery. If you are in the market looking for a Stage 1 or Stage 2 Faja, Snatched Body offers many options with different sizes to suit your needs.
