I had a TT and hip/flanks lipo seven days ago. I have to wear the binder garment for another three weeks, but it's quite painful on my incision. The velcro seems to pull on the tape and it gets bunched up. Is there something I can put on my skin between the binder? cotton pads or something?

Yes, I recommend that you put some soft padding (for example a peri pad) or wear a tea shirt underneath your binder for relief.

Yes, I think the simplest solution would be to use pads or dressings between the abdominal wall binder and your skin.
