How Can Facial Support & Compression Garments Benefit My Healing Journey?
Facial compression garments and chin straps can provide support and compression to the face, neck, and chin following a face lift and neck lift or other facial procedure. These garments are placed around the face and cover the chin and the lower face. Some garments may only provide support for the facial areas, whereas others provide compression and support to both the face and neck. Some facial garments have holes in the ears to avoid putting pressure on incision areas, while other garments cover the ears. Moreover, facial compression garments may also be worn after liposuction of facial, chin, and neck areas.
Following your face lift or neck lift, your doctor may ask you to wear a compression garment. Wearing a compression garment is essential to improve blood circulation, stop the loss of blood, minimize swelling after the procedure, accelerate the healing process, and allow the patient to return to daily routines sooner. A compression garment also provides support to surgical areas for more comfort and helps the skin fit better to its new contours.
A facial compression garment is typically worn immediately after the surgery and continuously for several days (or longer depending on the doctor's instructions) and then non-continuously for the initial 1-2 weeks of post-op. During the initial period of post-op, your doctor may instruct you to wear this garment constantly (even while sleeping) and only remove it when you need to shower. Generally, the amount of time you will need to wear your garment will be reduced as you move forward in your healing journey. Due to heavy drainage and long, continuous periods of time that you may need to wear the garment, it is recommended to purchase 2 garments.
