Some patients wear the garment as much as possible for the first 7 days. After that it is good to purchase a lighter support garment or body shaper from a local department store to be worn during activity for 1 more week. Compression created by the garment is the most important thing after your procedure. Take your garment off only to shower or change the dressing.

Remember, wearing the garment is more important than trying to stay dry so do not attempt too many frequent dressing changes. To change the dressings, simply take off the wet ones and use the sanitary pads or the dressings provided by the nurse and apply over incision sites. Use extra padding in these areas. Chin support garments are worn 24 hours per day for 2 days and then nightly through the next 10 days.
