Let's resolve this once and for all, is a compression garment necessary? (5 weeks post-op)
Doctor Answers 4
Yes to compression
I would recommend you wear a compression garment.
Male Tummy Tuck and Compression Garment
A compression garment after male tummy tuck will help control the swelling and get the swelling out quicker. It may or may not effect the final results. You will get differing opinions on that.
To be sure, see two or more experienced, board-certified Plastic Surgeons in your area for a complete evaluation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is safe for you to have surgery.
I hope this helps.
