Thank you for the question.
I always recommend my patients to get a full one piece garment in order to have a bit more comfort during their recovery process.

Compression garments after tummy tuck, lipo and Brazilian Butt Lift
Hi. While some patients fit one compression garment, often there are slight differences in your body shape to the 'standard' shape, and therefore a lot of patients find it more comfortable to wear 2 separate garments. All the best with your surgery. Regards Dr Charles Cope
Hello, thank you for your question. I like using the one piece compression garment. The problem with a two piece garment is that if some skin is left in between, it will leave a window for edema. One piece garments offer a more uniform compression. As for the difference in waist line diameter Vs the hips, some manufacturers have actually addressed this problem by developing a special line for these types of bodies, so talk to your PS for advise in the matter. Good luck with the surgery.
Should I purchase the one piece compression garment or two piece?
I use two different garments on my patients, one for the first 7days (binder) and after the drained come off we use a regular garment with more compression to help you with the swelling.
