Surgery didn't last because I couldn't wear my compression garment?
- I am so sorry you have had such difficulties.
- We do not believe that the compression garment affects your final result - although we may be wrong.
- It sounds as though you are very swollen - and the garment is helping to control the swelling.
- So continue to wear the garment and have your surgeon check your result.
Liposuction, not using proper pressure garments, skin folds, secondary surgery, revision surgery
Thank you for the query. Sorry to know that you are unhappy with the results. Liposuction creates a lot of dead space where the fat has been removed and into these areas the fat must be readjusted to achieve a good result: pressure garments help in this process and therefore patients are advised to use them at least for 12 weeks post operatively. In your case unfortunately you need to see a certified surgeon and decide whether you will need an additional procedure, Skin excesses in the lower abdomen sometimes need a mini tuck but again your surgeon has to decide on this.Best wishesDr Alexander
