I would like to know why it is recommended to wait 3 months before waist training after a bbl. please help with this questions without just referring me to my PS. Because he is hard to contact

Waist trainers tend too be too tight for the immediate recovery period.  I have seen patients who have used these against recommendation, end up with creases and deformities in the abdominal wall.  You can sometimes use an elastic binder, a foam insert, or  a belly board if you need more compression with your existing garment, but hold off on the trainer until your swelling has subsided and you are healed.
