Bruising after surgery
Postop garment skin abrasions
I would recommend that you contact your plastic surgeon and convey these photos and questions.
Your photos appear to show a surface abrasion from your garment . I would recommend using ointment over the skin until complete epithelialization and cover with a nonstick dressing. I would also recommend to wear, if you are not already using, lipo-foam over your abrasion dressing and around your entire waste underneath your post operative garment. Lipo-foam will prevent abrasions and improve the skin contour.
I wish you well through your recovery,
