UK Vaser Post One Day!
Before making my decision to go through with vaser...
- 6 Jun 2009
Before making my decision to go through with vaser i read this site from top to bottom, and it helped me immensely.
I wanted to share my experience as each one varies and there are a few things i experienced that may not have been mentioned on here.
I intitially went in for just my outside thighs (saddle bags) and top of my thighs, however while i was being prepared and measured i spontaneously decided to get my hips done also. It was another £1500 on top of what i was already due to pay, but both areas have been the bain of my life and i thought i have the rest of my life to worry about paying it off.
The process goes... Injection of local anesthetic quickly followed by the under this skin anesthetic, this is done by going under the skin do anethetize the whole area about to be worked on. This can be slightly painful in places as it can touch the areas that have not yet been numbed!
The first area to be done was my left leg, what neither i or the doctors had anticipated was that the bruise i already had in this area would cause me to feel pain in that area throughout the process, we stopped to top up the anesthetic and while it began to work on the rest of my leg the area with the bruise was still very painful, in the end he had to stay away from it.
The sensation of the doctor probing under the skin to melt the fat and then again to suck it out, is something very unusual and feels quite strange, however, after the discomfort of the first leg the follwing leg and both hips went without any real pain, possibly it was because i knew what to expect.
I had the machine in my eye line and saw the fat come through the tube. I'm not sure what the difference between good and bad fat is but they had said mine was very good as it was mostly fat and very little blood being sucked out. It is quite bizarre, but strangely elating to see the fat come through the tube into the container. When all areas were done they had taken almost 1 litre of fat from me (i'm told this equivalent to 2LB) and while this doesnt sound very much, the doctor had said he anticipated that i would drop a dress size when i reach my final results.
When i sat up i could immediately see the difference in my hips, i couldnt get a view of my legs and everything was quite swollen.
Next bit to be prepared for is the leaking of the liquid and fat still to make its way out. Quite a bit came out before i left the clinic, but all last night i continued to come out. I changed padding and trousers several times throughout the night and went to bed with several towels and padding under me. The final bit to come out seems to be just blood which looks awful but i am told this is normal.
Another very unattractive aspect is the compression garmet, with a special hole in place for when you need the toilet.
And i have just taken my first shower in it...again, not a nice feeling.
However, although i am in a little pain this morning it is nothing i can not deal with, a few painkillers here and there and i think i will be fine. The worst of the leaking seems to be over and i am extremely excited to be able to remove my garment in a couple of weeks and catch a glimpse of my new body.
I will post updates. Wanted to post pictures but sadly have no befores.
