I am male, early 40s, one week post op lipo on chest, flanks, and stomach.
I am experiencing pain and swelling, and significant bruising, but feel better than initial days, which were scary, clamy, very pale, knocked me off my feet for days. Could have been the collective result of aggressive surgery and narcotics and general anesthesia.Surgery was aggressive, significant bruicing and tendernes and pain post op. I wore bandages and velcro vest for one day, but PS said not to wear anything (after he saw my distress; I beleive he was concerned). I have seen him since, and he said the garment helps with swelling, but does not affect result; my skin is elastic. However, I am concenred that it will affect my result given all that I've read about how important it is to wear the garment. Any comments?
