I have stopped wearing my chin compression garment after having my double chin lipo'd 5 days ago. Will this damage the result?

I find it very uncomfortable as I had rhinoplastye same time.

A little more may be better

As a general rule, with our under chin corrections, I have a general rule of using the chin compression for 3 to 5 days, and then using this somewhat awkward to be seen in garment, just for an hour an evening for one to two weeks, sort of like using the chin strap as a "training" garment" to help the skin "remember" what it is that you would like it to do, ie "tighten"
