I am four weeks post face/neck lift with lpyo on chin. My swelling is not going down. No compression strap was given. Should it?

Hello, I don't think a compression strap is essential for a typical neck liposuction. Ultimately I would refer this question to your surgeon as each surgeon will have a different philosophy about postoperative dressing and care. Although some surgeons recommend using such compression garments and they can help with swelling in the short term, I don't think it will alter the final result and they may not be worth the trouble. Also if not applied correctly these straps can be damaging to the skin.
