Hi everyone, I decided to have vaser liposuction because the appearance of my abdomen has been bothering since I had my second child, 5 years ago. I have considered a tummy tuck a couple of years back but I'm glad I didn't go ahead with it. I think is far too traumatic. I only had it done yestarday, 14/05/2010 and I can tell you I was really nervous about it, I felt sick to my stomach only thinking about it.
The procedure itself was not half as bad as I thought it would be. Was a bit painful at times but nothing major. It took 1 1/2 hours and he took out 1.5 litres of fat. I loved to see the orangy/yellow fat finally out of my body. I did have a bit of loose skin to begin with but I'm hoping for good results.
I had the procedure done by Dr R in Dublin. He is great, very gently and he explained to me what he was doing step by step. Collete, the nurse was also very supportive. After the procedure I felt very energetic, I cooked dinner, did the dishes and walked around quit a bit. No pain at all.
Today, I'm starting to feel a bit tender in the abdomen area but nothing much. I have no bruising and although I am a bit swollen, I can definetly see an improvement. I will post photos in a couple of weeks. I'm very excited but I don't know what will happen in the next few weeks, so I can't say if it was worth it or not but I will keep you posted.

I am 26 and after having two children I considered having a tummy tuck. I am now happy I didn't do it. Hope this vaser lipo will work for me. I am quite swollen but I had no leakage from the incisions and no bruising. My doctor said I will start to see results in about 3 weeks, so I can't wait for that. As for pain, it can be quite unconfortable but easily controlled with medication.

Two weeks post op and I the swelling goes down everyday. I had some saggy skin and strech marks before the procedure and I think that vaser made the strech marks more visible. I know it takes time for the body to get back to normal and I'm trying to be patient.
Its been 4 weeks now. I expected to see more of a...

If I'm honest I haven't really dieted or been to the gym so ... not really much of a difference for me.
Good luck to everyone else who wants to have the procedure done. You might want to ask your surgeon about internal fat.
He did warn me about internal fat and about unrealistic expectations but I did think my results will be better than others...
