Note to Ddrop:

It reduces swelling and discomfort for the most part.  But it can also stabilize loose skin during the early healing phase.  Excessive swelling early on could stretch skin even more, and that could affect longterm results.

So even without the garment the body will still be able to pull that skin back to an extent?

Yes, to an extent.  Women don't wear compression garments on their bellies after delivery (well, maybe some do) and their skin contracts pretty well.

Will you be able to fill out the extra skin with muscle?  Or will it always be loose?

skin should contour to body. Older people may have problems but young healthy people for the most part should not.
