hi sarah

the compression garments after liposuction is a must to prevent swelling and loosening of skin from where the fat has been aspirated. you have to wear it for minimum of 3 month to get the good shape . the amount of fat aspirated is small , you can go outside but avoid alcohol for at 1-2 weeks

Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon Dr. Souvik Adhikari's  Response
Wearing a pressure garment does not alter the final result of liposuction: it is given for patient comfort and to make you feel easy after surgery. It has been shown that the final result would be the same whether or not you wear a pressure garment so don't be anxious. You can go for a night out whenever you are comfortable with it but keep in mind that excess drinking might reverse the effects which you might have had with liposuction.
It is best to have a healthy diet and avoid drinking as much as possible to get a good result: the final result should be appreciated after 6 months' time.
