Dr. Jonathan Zelken, board certified plastic surgeon demonstrates appropriate placement of a Marena compression garment. These garments are critical for reducing postoperative swelling and optimizing your result. They can be machine washed, and you may want 2 or 3 to complete your cycle. The seams are designed to be on the OUTSIDE and the garment should be snug, but not too tight. This is particularly important after FaceTite and liposuction.
