Compression garment: you should follow your surgeon's instructions. A compression garment is a good idea after these procedures. It is typically worn in the early postop period.

Compression Garment: Compression garments are usually worn in the early stages of recovery. Please follow the instructions provided by your plastic surgeon.

It can help: Wearing a compression garment following these procedures can optimize your result. They should not be done immediately or be placed to tightly as they can compromise the skin flaps and surrounding tissues. Ultimately they can help with reducing edema and swelling and direct scar contracture in a more favorable manner.

Depends: It depends mostly on how premature they were. Babies who were born around 24 weeks have the highest risks of infections, eye problems, breathing problems, developmental problems. Each week that the baby spends inside the mom, decreases the amount of time they spend in the intensive care unit and the problems they face later.
