I'm in my first week post-op from inner and outer thigh BodyTite lipo as well as lower abdomen. My surgeon gave me this compression garment and I could NOT be happier! Since all treated areas are painful to the touch for the first few days, having the hooks & zips on each side makes it's so much easier to put it on and take off without the pain of a tight garment pulling on your VERY sensitive areas. Also, I find that the reinforced outer thigh hook & zip help "protect" these areas from rubbing and contact pain when sitting or getting up or lying in bed. They also hold the skin in place much better than any store bought garment which helps greatly to reduce the pain when moving or "jiggling" (walking, going up stairs, etc.) One thing the photos here don't show is how the zippers extend about 2cm above and below the edge of the garment which I thought would be a problem. But with lose fitting clothes it hasn't been an issue for me so far. I even wore white capri pants and it didn't show. The only down side I can find is the high waist band which tightens around the lower rib cage can get tiring 24/7 and when sitting down, the zippers tend to make folds just below the rib cage so you need to wear a lose shirt. Since I don't need compression that high, I just loosen the upper zip & hooks when I'm at home. As the previous reviewer mentionned, the open crotch area is well designed and very practical. You don't want to be pulling your tight garment up & down over those soar areas several times a day! The quality of the material and design along with the comfort and support is well worth the investment!!! Note - I've just ordered the Marena stage 2 garment with lower waist band for use in weeks 2 & 4.
