    Question compression garment after tummy tuck

    I just had a tummy tuck and am still wearing the wrap around binder (which works great with the drainage tubes) but, they are about to come out and I was wondering what type of "control" panties everyone thought were the most comfortable. I also had lipo on the stomach and flanks and of course 'm still "sore" so I don't want something that will "cut into me" like some of the old "girdles"
    any suggestions????

    thanks for the information! So the "compression" garments are not something you actually have to wear???? are they really more for just your own comfort?

    Spanx are great!! I wore them for a while after my tummy tuck and they are great and so comfortable and you can't see them under clothes.

    I tell patients spanx also - they have the one that covers the entire abdomen which would be the best - most of the time they have additional lipo so they feel better with the spanx for weeks later.
