ASk Surgeon.: You will likely be able to tell just by looking at your torso what areas were treated. Swelling/bruising/ tenderness will likely be present. Of course, your plastic surgeon will always be your best resource for accurate information.

Talk to your surgeon: In the history you have documented that you had liposuction of the area in question. You will have to speak with your treating physician to find out the answer.
Dr. Matthew Schulman

Ask your surgeon: Ask your surgeon what areas were done. The garment has nothing to do with it.
