I am scheduled to have my procedure next Wednesday(July 15, 2009. AT THIS TIME I AM NOT ABLE ABLE TO RATE MY OVERALL SATISFACTION.
I am going to a board certified PS who, is very nice and answered all of my questions no matter how silly.
I will be posting pre-op pictures after my procedure.
If you have any tips that you think will be helpful for post opt recovery or your own experience with Vaser I am all ears.

Today is July 15th. I had my vaser lipo performed today. I decided to go under general anesthesia because I did not not want to be up for the surgery. I was extremely nervous, anxious and on the verge of tears just waiting to go into the operating room, I can't just imagine what my anxiety level would have been if I was up for the procedure.
I am now 11 hours post surgery and I am feeling okay. I had my flanks(love handles) and entire abdominal area done. I can not see any results at this time since I am swollen. My stomach feels like a water bed and is numb to the touch. My flanks back area of the love handles feels like I went 10 rounds with a heavy weight boxer but the pain medication is keeping me comfortable. My abdominal area feels fine and I am not in any pain as far as that area in concern. At this time there is no drainage, however I am using the bathroom every 30 minutes to an hour. The compression garment is not so bad today, it feels like a new pair of spanx...lol..but let's see how i feel after wearing this for the next few weeks non-stop. I have 4 incision on the lower half of my stomach were most of the fat was and one on the upper abdomen area.
I am also sleeping like every 4 hours especially after I take my pain medication, which I have taken twice since coming back home. I will post pictures once some of the swelling comes down. I think i look the same way I did before the procedure.
As for my overall satisfaction is still to early to tell.

Today is August 25Th and I am 6 weeks out. This procedure is not a quick fix and healing takes time. I glad to say that I am happy with the results and see improvements to the area that was done. It took me about 4 weeks to get back to my exercise routine. I wear a "tummy trimmer" when I exercise since i am still a little sore around the flanks and it helps when I am jumping or running. The scars are healing well and are becoming less visible. I will be posting pictures shortly.
