many thanks for advice.
thank you very much for advise. wish nurses, etc, knew more re this.
Hi, hope you are recovering well.
I was advised to wear sports bras (initially in a band size one up & a cup size one up from my usual to allow for swelling) I had some front zip up ones from M&S which were easier to get on & off than back fasteners. The smaller cycling shorts worked well with the lipo too & I found the procedures much less painful than expected.
Hello, I have just read your message of last year
and, wondered if you received any recommendations following your Lipo surgery to reconstructed breast. I had this procedure, following Diep flap reconstruction (one side) and had the Lipo done just a couple of days ago. I'd particularly like to know if you received any recommendations re which Bra to use following Lipo. I have read so many different comments and Nurse prior to this procedure wasn't much help. thanks pam
Bruising is very pronounced in the area indeed, so expect to look like Grimace for a while there. After mine, I wore a shaper with enough compression where I needed it. https://popular.reviews/body-shapers/#7_Aimilia_S9006-VP
I had a mastectomy & TRAM reconstruction in September 2017 & have been on the waiting list for reduction & uplift on my good side. I had a call last Thursday & I'm going in on Monday!
Saw the consultant yesterday & he may do some lipofilling to my reconstructed side as I had some fat necrosis (He will decide when he examines me in theatre - I assume because he can be rougher without hurting me!) He said I need compression garments for 2 weeks, he gave me some leaflets which are expensive but the senior registrar said cycling shorts in a size smaller than I would normally wear would do just as good a job.
Anyone had similar op? What did you wear?
I've been told liposuction is v painful & bruising is very colourful!
