How Long Is A Compression Garment Needed After Male Breast Reduction?

2 Answers
Dr Ashish answered 2 weeks ago

Compression garments are most important in the first 48 hours after surgery.  They help reduce the risks of bleeding and bruising.  I typically have men wear them until they come back to see me post-op, a half of a week to a week later, and then can switch to a light compression shirt like Under Armor after that.

We recommend wearing compression garments for the first 1-2 weeks and then selectively using a compression undershirt during the day until you feel comfortable without it.
