My compression garment causes a severe back ache and abdominal pain while lying down. Is it ok if I only wear it during the day?

Ask your surgeon
Garment after liposuction
You will get a better result with a garment. But a rash and severe pain are not normal. You may be allergic to the garment or it may be too tight. Call your plastic surgeon to discuss what is going on and what to do. If you have a binder or a girdle, they can be a good substitute until you reach your surgeon. Sometimes unzipping a garment or cutting it where it is tight works well also. Best wishes.
