Compression Garment Use After Slim Lipo on Arms?

I had Slim Lipo done on my arms and I was wondering, how long do I need to wear the compression garment? It would have been much easier in the winter as far as clothes are concerned.

It is important to follow your treating doctor's advice.

In my practice, the pressure garment is worn for the first 2 weeks after surgery.

However, when possible I ask the patients to continue the garment, especially on the arms, at bedtime for the first 2-3 months.
