Compression garments after surgery
Although recommendations vary from surgeon to surgeon, I usually recommend that my patients wear the compression garment(s) 24/7 after surgery for 4-6 weeks. This timeframe is a guideline only and is completely dependent on the healing of the individual patient. Before my patients receive the go-ahead to stop wearing their garments, I like to examine them to ensure that the timing is correct. I understand that the compression garment can be uncomfortable, especially when sleeping, but it is really is advantageous to the patient to be diligent in wearing it. In the long run, 6 weeks is a very short time to achieve great results!

I would recommend following his instructions since he knows what was done in the OR and what would give the best result. Usually I recommend to my patients to wear compression for 3-4 moths after liposuction. Hope this is helpful.
