Should I Still Be Wearing Spanx at 8wks Post Op After TT with Flank Lipo?

I am a small framed female at 5'2'' and weigh about 125 to 127lbs.I had TTw/flank lipo.I had very little swelling.However, the last 2 wks I have noticed some laxity in my stomach above the bb. Of course I sit and some skin begins to hang over the scar too. My PS says it is most likely swelling. He said I didn't need to wear the spanx if I dislike it and bc it is so hot outside as well but now I'm worried if I should continue to wear the spanx?I really liked the flatness just after the TT. Thks.

In our practice we like to tell our patient’s to wear the compression garment for at least 3 months. It helps with the swelling
