Frequently asked questions 

What are the differences in the compression levels?

Non of our fajas give Compression to hips and butt.

High Compression is for stage 2 (At least four weeks post-op), and your incisions are completely closed. These fajas have rods and increment the level of Compression.

Extra-High Compression When you are in stage 3 (Between 2- 3 months post-op), your skin needs to be healed entirely because these fajas are built with a waist trainer, have rods, and latex, which increases the level of Compression highly.  

Keep in mind that if your waist is tiny compared with your hips and butt, it will still have this natural crease/fold, especially when you bend forward or sit down. What are the differences in the models of the faja?

All our garments are a great complement after your surgery or everyday life, they are customisable to your measurements, and in all of them you can choose the color, leg length, compression level, the biggest difference is in the upper part, some include bra and full back coverage.  Check the differences in the image below. 

What are the differences in the type of Butt

The main difference is the feeling of confort for the BBL butt and the Butt lifting effect of the Butt Lift. However, both butts has the same dimensions width and length. If you still feel you need more fabric because your butt is big, you can always write on notes you want a bigger size on the butt section.

When should I send my measurements? Before or after Sx?

This are our times suggestions, still verify with your doctor and follow their recommendations.

We suggest you send your measurements:

  • Around your second week if you want a high compression ( stage 2)

    Why my faja has different measurements that the ones I sent?

    The faja is never going to measure the same as your measurements because of the elasticity of the material that expands around 10 inches. If the faja would be the same measurement, it wouldn't fullfil it's the purpose that is compression. The design is made to consider the client's measurements and the elasticity of the material.

    Do your fajas give compression to Hips and Butt?

    Tributo fajas, ZERO Compression to hips and butt
    The fabric we use on the butt will always stretch.
    We don't make any reduction to the hip measurements you submit.
    No worries, our fajas gives ZERO compression to hips and butt.
    You don't feel the compression, but it will provide support and shape your body.

    Why a custom faja has less compression in the lower abdomen?

    In order to ensure zero compression to hips and butt our fajas has different compression levels, 

    if you don't mind to have some compression on your hips and butt and need lower abdomen compression, add it to the notes. 

    Why do I feel more compression on my hips and butt in my custom faja that my Faja by size?

    If you are used to a by size garment, these silhouettes are not adjusted to your body. Thus it always feels looser since it is a standard measurement. Opposite a Custom made garment that is shaped to your own measurements. It may feel tighter on your hips, but it is just because it is covering your real silhouette. But no worries, our fajas gives ZERO compression to hips and butt. The fabric we use on the butt will always stretch. You don't feel the compression, but it will provide support and shape your body.


    How is the crotch area of the Tributo garments?
    • There is an opening with a fabric flap on the crotch area, giving you more comfort, check the video to see how it is! 

    Why is it possible that when I get my faja goes to second, third, or even fourth line of hooks?

    We have a couple of reason that may explain that:

    1) You may have reduced the swelling.

    2) You can handle more compression than average.

    3)You have reduced your measurements while you faja arrives.

    4)You may have taken your measurements in the evening when you are more swollen.

    5)Your measurements weren't taken correctly.

    How to wash a Faja?

    • We always recommend doing it by hand, it will help you to take care of your rods or/and latex!
    • 🧼 Avoid high temperatures
    • 🧼 Avoid dryer machine.
    • 🧼 DO NOT twist your faja to drain the excess water, just gently squeeze the water out.
    • 💧 If you really need to use a washing machine put your faja with all the hooks close and inside of the laundry bag that comes with your faja.
    • 🚨 Again, do not use high temperatures, it will ruin your faja, we strongly suggest avoiding washing machines if your faja has rods.
