Dr. Trott On How The Vixen Came To Be
Early in my career, my patients, co-workers and colleagues nicknamed me the “Lipo Queen” because of my special knack for sculpting bodies.
Years ago, I ran into a problem when my liposculpture patients would not wear their postoperative compression garments. They wanted something more comfortable, something that they could wear under their skinny jeans. They would come see me at follow-up visits in thinner, store-bought “shapewear.” But those garments were ill-fitting---rolling up, rolling down---and not providing the necessary postoperative compression. And they were still uncomfortable.
Adequate compression worn after a liposculpture procedure is an essential part of the healing process. So I created The Vixen out of necessity.
I designed this “second stage” postoperative garment to be invisible under form-fitting clothing. It is made from a thin, yet strong and comfortable powermesh with no visible seams or zippers. The “differential compression” targets the areas that someone would need after a body contouring procedure: “bra” fat, back fat, love handles, abdomen, and inner and outer thighs.
It turned out that many of my patients actually enjoyed wearing this garment. Some continued to wear it past the suggested initial post-operative six week period. I would hear things like: “It’s better than any shapewear.” Their friends and family members (who hadn’t had surgery) started asking for it as well: they saw it as a regular shapewear for under their clothes for special occasions. This is how The Vixen transitioned to becoming shapewear for everyone.
My years of experience with body sculpting and postoperative healing have enabled me to create a garment that actually accentuates a woman's body on its own, without surgery. My garments are made with a unique material constructed with specific vectors that can replicate the results of surgical body contouring.
The Vixen has become another “Hollywood best-kept-secret.” But I have personally witnessed the surprise and excitement in every woman after she puts one on. So I hope that it can also become the “sexy” confidence-boosting secret for all woman who desire body contouring.
