What is a good garmet to help after Tummy tuck ! I'm 4 weeks post and still have a lot of lower abdomen swelling.

4 weeks post op, some advices:
To reduce it, I recommend you perform daily lymphatic drainage massage therapy over the abdomen and wear a postoperative girdle from thigh to the breasts.
Dr. Emmanuel Mallol Cotes.-
Spanks or a waist girdle
The swelling will probably persist for a couple of month or so. The slowest area for the swelling to leave is the lower abdomen, just over the incision site.
