I will be having Lipo on my tummy to fat transfer with my breast reconstruction expanders. What to purchase for tummy area?

I initially place my patients in an abdominal binder that is put on in the OR. After 3 days they can switch to a "tummy shaper" panty garment. My nurse recommends the "flexees" brand by Maidenform.
Hope that information is helpful.
Garments after Liposuction
Thank you for your question. There is no substitute for a well executed operation. The type of garment is not that important. The purpose of the garment is to provide some compression to help prevent fluid accumulation and to provide comfort. I would suggest having a discussion with your plastic surgeon prior to undergoing surgery.
Garments needed following tummy procedure
Which garments you will need after surgery determined by the type of tummy tuck you are getting. Your surgeon should provide you his recommended garment based on the type of tummy tuck you have.
