Dr.Panczel‘s Postoperative Pads is the unique result of a fruitfull cooperation between Dr.Georg Panczel, head of section of plastic surgery at Østfold Hospital Norway, and Jeannette Almstrøm, CEO of LANACare. The purpose was to develop a unique pad that would make the post operational phase for the breast patient optimal in healing as well as comfort. The pads quality is to maintain normal body temperature in the breasts and to prevent hypothermia which can lead to decreased circulation in the Breast skin. Essential features of the wool such as light warmth and breathability naturally contribute to optimising healing process, making it quicker and smoother. Dr.Panczel’s Postoperative Pads have been presented to and evaluated by Irene Wapnir MD, Chief of Breast Surgery Stanford Cancer Institute (see Information section) .
Dr.Panczel’s Postoperative Pads are made in organic merino wool. We only use chemically untreated and clean wool. Our wool is incredibly fine and soft, causing no irritation to the skin, therefore can be used even directly to the skin.
The pads should be used as a warming top-bandage during direct post-operative period or even after – as an additional layer of warmth in the bra. Many women continue to use these pads long after the surgery. Low temperature can give an unpleasant effect on the operation scar. These pads will give the warmth and softness to reduce this uncomfort.
The distinct qualities of the pads are:
Xsmall – 16×18 cm (6,3×7 inch)
Small – 16×21 cm (6,5×8,5 inch)
Medium 18×22 cm (7×8,5 inch)
