We recommend that you wear the compression garment as much as possible for 3 to 6 weeks for the best result. We realize that your do not want to wear this to work, but wear it when at home. The garment really helps with the healing. It is very important to follow post op instructions after surgery for the best result.
Compression garments are definitely important for any kind of laser liposuction, including the chin/neck. The garment helps to shape the area and to decrease the swelling and the bruising. We recommend wearing it as much as possible for at least three weeks but realize people do not want to wear a garment to work. So, the garment can be removed for work or social events after a week and then worn when the patient is home after work and at night.
