Should I wear compression garments after ultrshape?

Doctor Answers 3


Hello,There is no need to wear compression after Ultrashape. This is a non-surgical body contouring procedure.

Unlike liposuction, compressions garments are really not necessary after Ultrashape treatments.  Other body contouring treatments, both surgical and non-surgical, can cause inflammation and swelling.  However, Ultrashape uses non-thermal energy (i.e. not hot or cold), which causes very little downtime, if at all.

Not necessary

Wearing compression garments will help stimulate lymphatics but is not necessary or even recommended for Ultrashape.
