I'm having a Fleur de lis on August 15, 2016 How long does the surgery usually take.

What garments are usually used following the Fleur de Lis? For how long do you recommend the garments? Usually recovery time.

Tummy Tuck - Post Op Compression Garment

Thank you for your question and congratulations on your upcoming procedure. I recommend wearing a compression garment for 4 - 6 weeks following tummy tuck surgery. Spanx or a compression binder are both acceptable as long as they provide proper support. You should follow your plastic surgeon's advice regarding level of physical activity and use of a compression garment. Hope this helps!
