Swelling is to be expected and will peak in the first week.
Swelling is a normal and healthy part of the healing process. It can be hard to predict exactly how much swelling you will experience as it depends on the type of procedure you have, the treatment area, as well as individual genetic and lifestyle factors. However, you can expect swelling to peak within the first five to seven days, and then drop off significantly by the time you stop wearing your garment (two weeks). Be patient with your body and remember swelling is a sign your body is recovering.
