I am having a lipoabdominoplasty with lipo of flanks and full back.  I am trying to figure out how to sleep.  What position will work best when both front, back and sides will be sore and bruised.  Any suggestions would be very much appreciated.  Thanks in advance!

i had a full body lift- recliner with lots of pillows and smaller throw blanket to adjust to your comfort.. on your back, but i sort of shifted a bit from one butt cheek to the other..

I had a TT with MR lipo to entire back and flanks, i had to rent a recliner and that was my bed for about 4 wks, what you are trying to do is to let your new belly time to heal and not stretch it , the lipo wa painful but at least mine areas where numb so it was not bad sleeping on the recliner....

Where can you rent a recliner?

I used rent-a-center , they bring it to your home and pick it up as well, google rental places in your area...

recliner I rented. It had 6 buttons, so you could really adjust yourself. And 2 of those buttons were memory program, so you could go right back to a sweet spot once you set it. Super easy! If you are considering renting a recliner, it's the one! www.AccessMedicalEquipment.com the LC Relaxer M I had a lower body lift, so my incision is 360. This recliner was the best thing. There are also so national rental options that will deliver anywhere and were cheaper than rent-a-center, which had no lift recliners in our area, just recliners...that lift function is key! You may need to google medical supply+ recliner. for mine there was a weekly or monthly rate ($250/mo, $125/week). Joyce recommended the one I rented which had a little memory foam type layer ...(it still was not an attractive chair) but it was super A+ comfy
