What home remedy can I use to reduce my surgery swelling until I can wear my body garment?
Doctor Answers 2
Swelling after 5 weeks.
Swelling is normal after extensive plastic surgery like you have described. I prefer to send my patients to see a professional who has a lot of experience in lymphatic massage technique after plastic surgery. I also would consider a tight supportive garment 24/7 on all the areas that have been operated upon. Elevating your extremities at night will help with swelling.

I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients. Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!
