I’m interested in getting laser liposuction on my chin. Do I still have to wear some sort of compression garment with it being my chin? How often and how long does this need to be worn since it will obviously be visible?
No matter which form of liposuction you decide to have for your chin and submental region, I would suggest the use of a compression garment to the area that has been treated for at least 5 or 6 days. The reasons for the need for a compression garment following laser liposuction is that you want to prevent accumulation of fluid in the empty space created with the removal of fat, and you want to give the skin the best chance of reapproximating to a natural position with a smooth neck line.
