Thank you for asking about your arm lift.

Please have your own surgeon guide you during your recovery - including how long to wear the compression garment. It will confuse your surgeon - and end up confusing you - if other people get involved. I suspect your surgeon will be fine with your removing the garment for a while every day.

That should be ok. 

Check with your plastic surgeon so you are following their instructions.
