Vaser Lipo - Not Sure if my Upper Abs Were Done

I had Vaser Lipo done 12 days ago on my upper and lower abs (supposedly) . I only have two incisions on my bikini line. My lower abs are sore and I can tell that the fat was removed, but the upper abs are not sore at all and I don't have any incisions on my bellybutton or anywhere above it to indicate that the doctor did anything there.

I'm having massages every other day with a girl who specializes in post-lipo massages. She was the one that raised the flag about my upper abs not being done. A week after the procedure, I was able to punch, grab and push my upper abs with no discomfort at all and my lower abs were still very sensitive. When I wear a high waist compression garment, the fat on my upper abs hangs over the garment.

I called the clinic a week after the surgery to schedule an appointment to talk about this. The doctor was not there and will not be able to see me for another 2 weeks. I talked to the secretary about my concerns. She said that, if the doctor marked my upper abs with the pen, they were done. I mentioned that I don't have incisions on my bellybutton and she said that he used the same incision from my bikini line and a large cannula to reach the top of my belly. My question is: is that possible? I can't prove that the upper abs were not done, but I am pretty sure they weren't. Any advice? Thank you

Hi there, welcome!

It is strange that on your upper abdomen you felt no pain, discomfort and anything else that you were feeling lower down. Personally I would wait to speak with your doctor face to face. Maybe using a long cannula from your bikini line means less pain and discomfort?

Hi Kirsty. Thank you for your response. I hope that is the case. I can't wait to be able to talk to him, but I still have to wait until 04/01. I am not worried about the results yet because I know it is too early to see anything. I just want to make sure that something was done there, since I paid for both areas.

I totally understand wanting to speak with him ASAP. I'm sure there's a good explanation. Hopefully you're one of the lucky ones who doesn't feel a lot of pain there! Keep us updated!

Hi, have you seen any difference yet on your upper abs. What did the doctor say? My upper abs also feel no pain or soreness but I can see the incision in my belly button
