Liposuction and girdle

You should check with your doctor, because hsi protocol may be different than mine. I have patients wear a garment for 3-6 weeks.  Not months.

Vaser Liposuction

Usually 3 months is enough, but if there is still swelling, then another month or so is good.  It won’t hurt you to go a little longer than too short of a time.  That time for healing with Vaser is unusual.  We are familiar with healing times much less than that with Vaser.

3 months too long to be wearing an compression garment in my practice. Best to check with your chosen surgeon of record.
