I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

Let's Talk Aftercare--Add Exilis Ultra, Cellutone, Venus Legacy
I have my patients wear them both full body plus wrap around abdominal binders for two weeks, then just the abdominal binders overnight for another 2 weeks. I always recommend they add RF treatments externally like venus legacy, exilis ultra, Vanquish, shock/vibration therapy like Cellutone/z wave, hyperbaric oxygen and compression in order to decrease swelling and improve results. It's usually advised to avoid prolonged sitting for the first 2-4 weeks. Best, Dr. Emer
