I had abdominal etching 3 and half weeks ago and I was wondering if I can take off my foam and start wearing the foams under my garment. Thank you.

Thank you for your question. You may experience moderate to minimal pain, but most patients can return to work within 5-7 days and resume exercise within 3 weeks. Following the procedure, you will be fitted with a compression garment to reduce bruising and swelling. Most bruising and swelling diminishes within 2 weeks. That being said you should be safe to do so but always speak with your board certified plastic surgeon on what their post op instructions for recovery are for your specific needs.

Wish you all the best,
