Compression garment

Check in with your plastic surgeon but I only have patients wear the compression garment for one month.

Many patients wear the compression garment for weeks to months. Follow your Plastic Surgeon's recommendation for your follow up care. Best wishes!

More than 6 weeks is unusual

I agree with Dr. Gottlieb. Call your plastic surgeon's office and ask what they recommend. Many surgeons recommend compression garment for 3-6 weeks, but usually not longer than 6 weeks. However, some surgeons don't recommend the use compression garments at all after a tummy tuck.

If you had any seromas, this may be a reason to wear for longer than 6 weeks. Therefore, it is always best to follow your surgeon's advice.

This is best asked of your surgeon. Most who recommend compression ask patients to wear them for six weeks, sometimes less.

All the best.
