Compression Garments After Liposuction

I had liposuction on June 4th. I was sent home in a garment which I have only taken off to shower. I wear the thing 24/7. My flank area was part of what I had lipo'd. Can I get a waist shaper to wear around my mid section for extra support and healing?

Compression garments after liposuction

I recommend you contact your surgeon to get his advise. You paid for his care and experience so ask for it. I would say OK but you are not my patient.

Liposuction garments

if you want to add an additional garment, check with your surgeon to ensure that it won't be too tight. You don't want creases to form unnecessarily.
