Lower body lift 6 weeks post op. Is my compression garment too tight?
Doctor Answers 3
It may be too tight if it is causing you that tenderness and pain. Try a size up and check with your surgeon so they can see how it fits you.
Lower body lift
Body lift - does my garment fit properly?
- If your new garment is causing tenderness on the inner thigh, it is probably too tight.
- Contact your surgeon to discuss what to do -
- If you were my patient, I would want you to cut it until the irritated area is 100% comfortable and perhaps stop wearing it for a while as well.
