Re: Compression garments after lipofilling

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.

Re: Compression garments after lipofilling

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

Re: Compression garments after lipofilling

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

Compression garments after lipofilling

Hi all,

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!
