Although it is highly recommended to try and maintain your weight after your treatment, it is possible to gain up to 3-4 kilos before you notice any obvious change in the treated area. With VASER Lipo, superficial fat and fat cells are removed, and as the body doesn’t readily make new fat cells past puberty, the results are more or less permanent. Any mild weight fluctuations are therefore not noticed as the extra fat is either immediately processed or evenly distributed around you body.We recommend that you continue to lead a fit and healthy lifestyle to maximise the results of your procedure.
VASER Liposuction After Procedure
Many patients will see results straight away. However, the appearance of the treated areas will show the most improvement about 5-6 weeks post procedure.
The results will last as long as you maintain your weight. It is advised that you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan to maintain the results.
It is normal to experience leaking from your wounds for the first 24-48 hours. It is good for recovery as leaking will reduce swelling as your body is not holding this extra fluid. We recommend that you change your bandages regularly during this time, sleep on old sheets and wear loose and dark clothing to avoid any stains whilst you are out and about. We are available 24/7 to answer any questions you may have. You will be provided with comprehensive information before and after your procedure on what to expect during your recovery period and will be available at all times should you have any concerns.
Your bandages will need to be changed regularly where required for the first 2-3 days. After this time they should only need to be changed once a day. Leakage from the wounds is common after liposuction and you should aim to change your bandages once they have become dirty to keep the wound area clean. If you require help or have any questions about your bandages then please don’t hesitate to contact your surgeon or our nursing team who will be available to help you 24/7.
For any treatment under the chin the garment is worn for 24 hours a day for 3 day and then nightly for 3 weeks.
For other areas such as abdomen, chest, flanks, knees, inner/outer the surgical compression garment should be kept on at all times for 3 weeks and then after this time the garment should be worn during the day (for at least 6 hours) for another 3 weeks.
