I'm 2 weeks out of arm lift with liposuction surgery. How long do I wear the arm compressions?

"Hello, for best results it is recommended that you wear the compression garments for at least 3 weeks post liposuction."
I would usually keep my patients in arm compression for 6 weeks and if the compression is becoming uncomfortable would encourage them switched to some other type of lighter compression like underarm. Of course each patient is evaluated, and depending on the healing, compression times may be modified.
