Compression wear, binders
Wearing a compression garment with a binder
Many of my patients seem to like the extra support and security of having an abdominal binder on top of their compression garment, so it can be safe and very effective to use one and/or the other judiciously.
However, so that you don't risk negatively affecting your results or healing, check with your surgeon about adding on the binder on top of your CG before you continue to wear both.
Hope this helps, and take care, Dr. Lim

Garment and Binder?
Most of my patients wear a #binder and #compressiongarment for the first week or so after surgery and then wear only the #garment for another five weeks post-op.
That being said, please ask your #boardcertified plastic surgeon what they recommend as each surgeon has different ideas about healing.
