Is the indention after Smart Lipo from the compression garment permanent?

SmarLipo and compression garment
We typically have our patients wear their compression garments after chin liposuction for less than 2 weeks. The chin and neck tend to heal very quickly. So 6 weeks would be a little unusual. The good thing is that irregularities caused by garments typically resolve on their own with time.
Post Liposuction Irregularities, Swelling -- Fat Grafting--Fillers (Juvederm, Restylane)--Consult and Expert
I suggest speaking to your physician, it is common to be swollen for weeks to months after liposuction procedures. If you feel like volume was lost during your procedure causing dents it can be added back with fat grafting, resorbable filler (Juvederm, Restylane), or Sculptra/Radiesse. Best, Dr. Emer.
