Thank you for your question. A personal exam and consultation is always best.

That said you were not specific as to the procedure your surgeon performed to remove your stretch marks. Regardless, your surgeon is the one to determine how long you need to wear your garment.

Be sure to consult a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, experienced in your procedure, and who has an excellent reputation in your community.
