Can you remove lipo garment after 4 days? Still have drains from explant and breast lift.

I have never found a garment that categorically fits everyone with the specifications you are asking for. I can say that we routinely transition our patients from a heavy duty post-surgical garment to a lighter Spanx type garment around three weeks after surgery. Ask your surgeon when he thinks you will be done with your current compression.
Garment removal post operatively
Thank you for your question. Be careful removing or lowering the garment, most often physicians not only suture drains but safety pin to garment to camouflage drains when dressed. Read your post - operative directions that should have been sent home with you or call your surgeon's office for clarity. There are several surgical garment companies you can order from directly if your surgeon does not carry a garment that suites you comfortably. I tell my patient's to Google "surgical garments" to peruse the web for an array of garments. I hope this helps. Best of Luck to you!
