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.
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.
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.
