I had liposuction two months ago. I have been wearing a Veronique garment that zips up the sides and has bra straps. I like the garment and I am very comfortable. In fact, I am so comfortable that I don’t even want to take it off. My doctor said I can stop wearing the garment after 6 weeks. It has been over 8 weeks and I don’t feel like I can live without the garment.
Help! I feel like I am addicted to my garment!
You are definitely not alone. Many patients say the garment acts like a security blanket and can be difficult to give up. It’s very much a love/hate relationship that many patients experience. They love the fact that the doctor has released them from the garment after 6 weeks of non-stop wear, yet they hate the way they feel without it. (more…)
