Thank you for asking about your liposuction recovery.
- The best place to get guidance is your plastic surgeon's office.
- The long arm vest seems a good choice for upper back and arm liposuction.
- But long arm garments are hard to get on - I have my patients use ace bandages instead.
- If this is ok with your surgeon, then you'll just need a high-backed jumpsuit,
- The buttock cut out is usually used for fat transfers to the buttock -
- If you aren't having this done, then a standard jumpsuit will be easier to wear.
- Sometimes it is good to wait for your second stage - because if you swell a lot, you may need a larger one than you expect - then choose the garment size based on measurements.
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
Compression is essential after liposuction. I suggest discussing your garment options with your physician to determine what is best for your individual surgery. Best, Dr. Emer
Garments are very important after liposuction and I would not recommend getting them without detailed discussion with your doctor. It needs to be proper fitting and really compress the areas that are needed for healing.Speak with your doctor first.Best regards and I hope this helps, Dr. Sapijaszko.
It is best to consult with your chosen Surgeon as he/she would know best. Garments are very specialized parts of the post-op care. They do play a role in achieving the best result. Every Surgeon has his/her personal choices. Stick with your Surgeon and his/her post-op care choices
Thank you for your question and congratulations on your upcoming surgery. The one piece is likely the easiest for you to wear to help apply compression to all of your sites of surgery but sizing will depend on your current measurements which your plastic surgeon's office can help you determine. Hope that this helps.
