I noticed your question regarding how long to wear the compression garment after Vaser. Since recovery from any type of surgical lipo is about the same, you should be able to find the info. you need about how long to wear the compression garment here: How long do you recommend wearing the compression garment after liposuction?
Also, I saw you asked about using Arnica after your Vaser procedure. In answer to the question, Does Arnica cream help with post-Smart Lipo hardness?, Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian said, "The best time to use Arnica is in the immediate postoperative period, but the agent can be used successfully to reduce inflammation in an area of concern at a later stage of healing."
So, according to Dr. Karamanoukian, it would be not only OK but ideal to use Arnica after your lipo procedure. I'm not sure why your doctor said you shouldn't, but I would double check with him before proceeding, as it can be risky to disregard your doctor's unique recommendations for your particular situation.
I hope your recovery is going well! Please keep us posted :)
