Had Expander Swapped for Implant. How Long Do You Wear Compression Vest?

Compression Vest after Breast Surgery?

Every surgeon has his/her own “protocol” for the use of garments/vests/bras  after surgery. It would be best for you to check with him/her since he/she knows exactly what was done and is ultimately responsible for your care.

Best wishes.

In my patients a few weeks but you need to ask your chosen surgeon his postop protocols for compression.
