How can I reduce swelling after TT and lipo?

Any idea what extra I can do to reduce swelling in those areas? It's been about ten days have one drain in

Post Operative Compression Garments

The most common cause of swelling post operatively is patients removing their compression garments early.  I do not allow my patients to remove their garments as long as drains are in place.  If you can see swelling, you need to put your compression garment on.
