I had VASER on my tummy 12 weeks ago and have had very little change. My measurements are still the same as they were before the procedure. My lower belly is flatter, but my waist is bigger. I had a lot of fluid retention and swelling, too.

Any suggestions?

I had slim liposuction 3 months ago, today. I had my waist done, sides and back. I had swelling up until a week or two ago. I was numb for most of the time, but now it's minimal. My problem, is that my rear end is definitely bigger. It sticks out more whereas before, it was flatter. Nothing liposuctioned there, but I want to know if this will sublside. I eat the same way I've always eaten. Healthy, no junk foor and am slim. Please help!

I had vaser liposuction done on my abs/flanks. Doctor indicated he took close to a pound of fat out. My stomach is flatter - no question about it but my waist is "thicker" - now my measurements around that area are up close to an inch?!? Before the procedure, my measurements weren't that bad - just flabby - now tighter and bigger? Should point out that I still have numbness around my lower abs. Anyone out there have the same problem? Please don't tell me it's diet - have not change my eating habits - the rest of my body is the exact same. For example, just today my skirt looked good but felt "tighter" around the waist.

Yes, I have, but my doctor said that you shouldn't have to diet, as long as you don't pig out! I am seeing another doctor for a second opinion next week.

Hi: I had vaser liposuction done on September 21 on my abs/flanks. My stomach is flatter - no question about it but, get this, my waist is actually "thicker". I still have numbness on my lower abs and I look better in clothes but my measurements have not changed?! I'm getting a wee bit upset - did it improve for you???

Kruise, have you been watching your diet during these 3 months? I noticed that my progress slow down when I do not control my diet. Is this a problem you are facing too?

Water retention is the most common, and according to my doctor, it will take 2 months to go away. You may want to read my post http://www.realself.com/review/Vaser-Liposuction-Vaser-Result-and-Compression-Method Good Luck.

Hi. Thanks for the reply. I am 3 months out, and still have a lot of swelling and fluid, from what I can tell. But I am larger than you are, so your results may be better.

According to the doctors' responses in another thread, it can take 3-6 months for results to start appearing. Here's a link: Why do the final Vaser lipo results take months to appear?

Hope this helps!

Thanks. I was just hoping to see more results by now. I have seen very little change around the belly button area especially.
