How to Wear a Facial Compression Garment

This video explains the correct way to wear a facial compression garment, when to wear it, and helpful tips for healing after a facial surgery.

Everything you need to know about facial compression garments.

Facial compression garments are essential for seeing best results after your facial surgery. Your compression garment should:

  • Not have a seam
  • Cover all incisions and the entirety of the surgical site
  • Likely secure with velcro
  • Remain smooth (fabric should not fold)
  • Be worn continuously for 6 weeks after your surgery. Continuous wear will prevent fluid buildup in the surgical area which could diminish proper healing.

Helpful tip: You can wear a thin cotton headband to protect your ears against irritation.
