SPANX- how soon after surgery can I wear them?



Recommended Posts

Hey Ladies,

I am 11 days post-op and am looking forward to wearing real cloths and not sweats. My incisions are still healing. They are stitched and glued but, get uncomfortable when things rub up against them. I am hoping I can wear my full torso Spanx sometime soon.

Any thoughts?

As soon as they are comfortable!

Took the words right out of my mouth ;-)

I laid gauze between my Spanx and the incisions to stop any chance of rubbing but was wearing them by 2 weeks out.

I tried Spanx once when I was 248 lbs. They made a huge roll over the top. Guess the fats gotta go somewhere...

Don't like em...

I would agree with everyone, it's when YOU feel comfortable in them. I wore my girdles about 2 weeks out. Granted I don't do Spanx. I Love the concept, dont' get me wrong..but umm a small hole at the bottom to attempt to pee out of? no thanks:)

I have found some amazing alternatives at Walmart & Ross where I can wear my own bra and still get the full effects of spanx :) i'm somewhat addicted to girdles!! Almost have as many as i do shirts! haha..but it boosts confidence and keeps my skin in control!

I buy the ones that start at my bra not at the waist. It helps to smooth the back, sides and front. I have never experienced a "roll" from wearing them. I keep 4 different lengths. Brief, Mid-thigh, calf and full length (down to ankle). LOVE EM'.

      Hi I'm Sam, currently 7 seven years out of VSG and looking into revision due to weight gain. 
      I'll be the first to say I lived life a little too hard and am looking for a second chance at a healthier life.

      Lololol...sad but true.. make sure you have probiotics in your diet daily. It helps your b m not have the horrible odor since we do not have the duodenum. I don't understand why they take that part out but they shouldn't leave it. Everything you eat and you can smell. But when you get back to normal eating it is off the chain.

        I’m 67 and will be 68 when I have my surgery at the beginning of next year.

        I’m 67 and had surgery in September.

      I had surgery on September 27th and I am one of the very blessed ones that have had no pain to speak of besides a couple days of gas pain. I have lost 9 lb since surgery, and I am feeling a little like I should have lost more by now. Is that realistic? Or am I being too fussy?
