I recently had SMART liposuction on my abdomen and inner thighs. The corset garment was way too small for me. As a result I have 2 large bubbles of skin where it protruded from the corset garment. These are located on both of my inner thighs and are the size of a small stapler. Does anyone have any thoughts on how to get rid of these skin bubbles?
Too Small Compression Garment?

The compression garment is supposed to be snug, to help with swelling and bruising. Be sure to follow your surgeon’s instructions on how long to wear it.

The corset garment should be tight but not to the point where it is cutting into your inner thighs. I would suggest you contact your board certified plastic surgeon for a follow up visit. After the third week you can switch your garment to a softer material, like Spanx. Also I would suggest lipomassage and lymphatic massage to help improve blood circulation, lymphatic flow, and to speed up healing post op.
