A waist trainer (according to my surgeon) won’t help you with shape. The only thing that will help with loose skin is hard exercise. I do suggest a stomach binder for recovery, it REALLY made a huge difference in controlling the pain. I was given one at a follow up appt, but I would buy one on Amazon if I were you! Last I checked they were like $17. You don’t need anything special, just some compression around your stomach to help with incision and muscular pain. I started wearing mine on top of a T-shirt bc it chaffed.

The corset is designed to move your rib bones over time. Reality, weight loss did more for my mid-section and shape than the waist trainer. Weight lifting was a game changer for my curves/shape. Also fills out my loose skin a bit.😉

I went to my support group yesterday and the special speaker was a plastic surgeon from the hospital. He said its really genetic, age and other factors determined how quickly the skin snap back. You can get good weight trainers from Amazon. My doctor said no tight clothes within 3-4 weeks. Not sure what I am going to do because I wear body sharpers everyday under my clothes. LOL.

Good luck with you surgery!

I went from binder into spanks - but for this body there as nothing to make the skin tighter. I went with PS.
