Most Plastic surgeons, depending on the area and extent of liposuction, would recommend you wear compression garments 3-4 weeks.

If you were provided a post-procedure #garment, be sure you are wearing it until prescribed otherwise by your doctor. The purpose of the post-procedure #garment is to provide some gentle #support and to reduce swelling. If it feels too tight or causes pain, take it off. Many patients wear the #elastic garment for several weeks after procedures, as directed by their doctor; some choose to wear it longer for several months for comfort.

At least 6 weeks to 6 months are needed depending on the area and how much was removed. Thank you for your question and good luck with everything.
