i was refereed by a woman at a clinic i had been doing zerona at to think about vaser lipo. as i had seen zero results from zerona, i tried every single alternative, before signing up for vaser lipo.,i tried everything from the hcg diet, that made me gain weight and YES I FOLLOWED IT TO A T, i had done endermologie for 6 months with zero results, fasts, cleanses, diets galore you name it i tried it, and no matter how thin i have ever gotten i always have the same little fat pockets that create an asymmetry in my silhouette. i am an avid exerciser and diet connoisseur, i felt it was time to look into liposuction. i did my research and upon the woman's referral, decided to take the leap into vaser lipo.
i made sure my doctor was a surgeon, not a dermatologist, or family practitioner, he is not only a surgeon, but he trains other doctors in this procedure, he went to school at BOSTON UNIVERSITY MEDICAL,he did all of his interning and training in Boston hospitals, i felt very confident in him!!!
i knew from what the woman had told me that i would be very sore and swollen for the first week and i would slowly decrease in swelling over a 3-6 month period, i was expecting to be bruised and uncomfortable, so i took off 2 weeks, from work and all activities. the doctor, and his assistants informed, and confirmed to me that all of these expectations were realistic.
don't expect to be walking or working in 3 days it is unrealistic, this is a surgical procedure, accept that and prepare for that.
October 22 i had my abdomen, back and love handles done, not too bad at all with the pain, i was slightly uncomfortable but was fine. a deep tissue massage is more painful in my opinion, the doctor and assistant were fabulous, i could not have been happier, and more satisfied.
i was leaking, swollen and moving very slowly immediately afterwords. by day 2 the leaking was minimal, movement was the same, and some swelling had reduced. basically i sleep all day, drink lemon water and ice.
day three i am less swollen still bruised and sore, only in certain spots however, still resting, drinking lemon water, and icing.
i expect this to continue for the rest of the week. i will be getting my legs saddle bags and arms done this Friday. so i expect to be sore and swollen again, and assume i will be sore and slightly uncomfortable until December, swelling will decrease monthly for the next 6 months, i am very happy i did this, i have zero regrets, i have been realistic about the complications and recovery, and planned for it!!!!
he is exceptional!! very realistic and informative. gentle, and safe, very clean space wonderful bedside manner!!
