I utilize the compression garment to help manage and prevent fluid collections after liposuction. It is a method to close dead space following liposuction while the flap adheres to the underlying abdominal wall. The compression garment is far more important in aggressive liposuction than in conservative liposuction. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of Brazilian buttlifts and liposuction procedures each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

No Garment= Poor Result
A garment is necessary after liposuction and fat transfer. The garment places pressure on areas of liposuction to control fluid and swelling. It allows relaxation in the area of the grafts to improve shaping. The garment is essential.
