On the day prior to surgery, our office will contact you to discuss final items of importance regarding your upcoming procedure.

After most of the body contouring procedures in plastic surgery, patients are recommended to wear a compression garment. Depending on the surgeon and the procedure, garments are to be worn for up to 8 weeks after the surgery. Not only they are the key to optimal results but they also make the post-operative experience a lot easier.
A compression garment works exactly like it sounds like, with compression. A compression garment is going to add an external pressure to your body in the area where the incisions have been made. This keeps swelling down, stop bruising from happening, and helps keep the circulation in your body going smoothly.
