How long do you recommend wearing compression wear around my torso after having Coolsculpting done on my abdomen and flanks?
Doctor Answers 13
Compression garments are not necessary to wear for post Coolsculpting procedures. You may continue wearing it only if it makes you feel more comfortable.

I appreciate your question.
You do not need compression after coolsculpting.
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!
Compression garment after CoolSculpting
I do not routinely recommend wearing a compression garment. If discomfort and swelling are particularly bothersome after CoolSculpting, I suggest bike short or a similar mild compression garment. One of the great things about CoolSculpting versus liposuction, is that you do not need to change bandages or wear a compression garment for weeks after treatment. Most patients experience only minor discomfort during and after CoolSculpting, which usually requires no medications, or is relieved by Tylenol or ibuprofen if necessary.

Compression is not recommended post CoolSculpting
Compression is not recommended post CoolSculpting, so you can feel free to discontinue your use of a compression garment. Your results are not dependent on anything you do, other than diet and exercise.

A compression garment is optional. Usually patients that get the abdomen treated feel more sensitive. You'll notice it may be discomforting to get up from a couch or a car. If you feel like you do not need to wear the compression then you can stop.
