Wearing the compression garments can be very uncomfortable, how ever these are a key in getting the great results you've probably seen else where. This helps your body heal and helps the results to be smoother and have less irregularities.

Since there are no hard and fast rules for the surgery and each patient reacts differently, what you are experiencing may be totally normal. You can help the swelling by eating a low salt diet, drinking a lot of water and keeping your compression garment on as much as possible for at least two weeks after surgery. You should definitely follow up with your doctor about any concerns.
