More compression does not always equal more benefits. You should follow your surgeon’s instructions post-op, and make sure to consult him or her before changing your routine.
I am a stickler for adequate compression after Liposuction, at least a few months! I feel compression that feels like a "snug hug" is appropriate, not too loose and not too tight. If the compression garment given to you by your surgeon is questionable, I would contact his/her office for further construction.

your compression garment should be comfortably snug but not tight. it should cover the area treated evenly and fully. You will not get a better result by torturing yourself with a super tight garment.
good luck and remember it takes a full 6 months to get your maximum improvement.

Compression, massage, and hyperbaric oxygen are very important after liposuction and customized garments and foam padding should be provided by your physician. Best, Dr. Emer.
A proper fitting compression garment should apply compression evenly over the entire area that was treated and it should not end in the middle of a treated area. Your Waist Nipper might not cover the entire area. The edge of that garment might produce a groove in the treated area. See your surgeon if you're uncertain.
