We sometimes have liposuction surgery patients that call our office after their procedure, during their recovery and ask “are garments important after liposuction” and our answer is simple. The purpose of the garment is to support the treated area after your liposuction procedure. Not only is the garment supposed to make you feel more comfortable and help with the swelling, but it’s supposed to help with your overall results. I find that if a garment is not worn as it should be, the liposuction patient does not get as good a result.  Unfortunately, the patient may be left with contour irregularities, unevenness and are not as trim as they would like to be.

So my advice, wear your garment after your liposuction procedure, you’ll be much happier with your final results!
