Abdominal binder after tummy tuck

How many weeks post op tummy tuck were you able to stop wearing the binder given from Dr and go to spanks? I have my 4 weeks appointment coming and have a wedding coming up on the 6th. Hopeful to go with spanks and not big (uncomfortable) binder.

    I wore spanks after 2 wks.

  2. Tiffany says:

    Hum. I might go to the mall tomorrow and see if I can try some on. I also had breast augmentation and am hopeful after Tuesday appointment I can wear regular bra too.

  3. Brandy says:

    I’m only 8 days post tummy tuck op but I feel so delicate without my garment lol! I feel like I’m going to pop open without it….

  4. Jo-Anne says:

    I tried on the spanks thing I got from my ps today (I’m 4 weeks PO tummy tuck) and I found it uncomfortable and hot! So I went back to the binder.

  5. Tiffany says:

    They didn’t mention giving me something different. She just said I probably wouldn’t feel like trying those things on so stick with binder until next appointment. I just want to be able to wear a cute dress without binder for this wedding.

  6. Ryan says:

    6 weeks po and tonight was my first night out with my garment. I survived…lol

  7. Jo-Anne says:

    How did it feel Ryan Simons? I tried just sitting on the couch for a bit without mine and it felt uncomfortable.

  8. Ryan says:

    It was cool, I kinda felt weird after dinner and drinks. Stomach felt too full. But I’m home in bed now and I feel fine…

  9. Kristi says:

    I think I prefer binder because those spanks whooooo wee are just too much. I pee and i feel like I’m pealing a layer of skin

  10. Ryan says:

    Yea I’ll be glad when my body starts feeling normal again. I did lose 27lbs since the surgery tho…. So give and take.

  11. Jo-Anne says:

    That’s awesome Ryan Simons! Congrats

  12. Natalie says:

    I wore mine for 6 months then started wearing spanks for bed n night outs my tummy tuck op said longer better n he right more flatter my tummy got x

  13. Tiffany says:

    My major issue with this binder is it keeps wearing down (folding) in the same spots. I have had 3 in 3 weeks. I turn them and do everything I can but they just bunch up at the hip. Any advice?

  14. Natalie says:

    I kept asking my po for smaller ones and they provided them for me anytime I asked xx

  15. Julie says:

    About 6 weeks but still preferred my binder!
