Vasor lipo needed on my flanks and abdomen: will I require drains?

Vaser Lipo--Drains Needed?

+2
For more than a year I have used Vaser Liposuction exclusively for body contouring and it is a wonderful improvement over traditional or laser liposuction.  In my practice we do not use drains for Vaser Liposuction.  Drains can increase the risk of infection.  The good news about Vaser Liposuction is that there is less swelling, less bruising and a quicker recovery.  Most patients can drive just a day or so after surgery.

Best of luck!

I do not typically use drains, but some doctors use them on a routine basis.

Find a board certified plastic surgeon who performs hundreds of liposuction procedures each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.
