had puffy nipples removed and now 1 week post op and started wearing my compression vest. just wondered how tight it has to be?

atm i have some gauls pads over my nips to make the compression even tighter, but when i removed them to shower, looked like the area was all purple in the shape of the pad lol, is this bad for healing?
(the tightness i have does not effect my breathing, by the velco bit is very tight over my arms.)

the one i have on at the moment is the one your ment to wear for 4 weeks 24/7 after surgery the 3 weeks at night: http://www.thesurgerystore.com/compression_garment/adjustablecompression_vest.htm

does it matter if its that tight over the whole 4 weeks?
