I am scheduled for Liposuction on December 22, 2009 for upper and lower abs, flanks, and bra roll. I am 41 years old, female, 5’3” and 160lbs. I have 2 medical conditions: Crohn’s/colitis (currently inactive) and hidradenitis suppurativa. I had surgery 8 years ago to remove the affected skin in the groin.
My question is about compression garments. My plastic surgeon wants me to wear it for 1-2 weeks, then 12 hours a day after that. With the HS, I will have a hard time with the compression garment irritating the groin. Is it possible to use multiple garments (hi-cut panty, band, compression bra) instead? I'm really not sure if I am going to make it past my first shower in the garment from the hospital.
