When considering an abdominoplasty ( tummy tuck ) or liposuction procedure your surgeon will discuss the recovery process that will take place after your surgery and the importance of aftercare during that healing process. Most surgeons would recommend wearing a compression garment for up to six weeks after liposuction this will minimise post-operative oedema and prevent rippling of the skin and help you to heal faster. You may be instructed to wear the garment even while you sleep to ensure optimal healing. It is therefore extremely important that the garment that you select or are provided with post operatively is a medical grade compression fabric. The garment should fit well and provide a firm but comfortable level of compression that will help reduce swelling and adjust with your body during the recovery process.
