Vaser Lipo - Still Not Sure if It Was Worth It (Arms, Upper/lower Abs, Flanks, and Back) - Leawood, KS

Had Vaser Lipo on my arms, upper/lower abs,...

Had Vaser Lipo on my arms, upper/lower abs, flanks, and small areas of back. Procedure was on 3/30/10.

The arms were done first and was not painful at all. It was a tad bit uncomfortable, but that was expected considering I was going through something I had never experienced. But once we got moving it wasn't painful at all.

All the other areas. I can't say the same. Most of the areas were tender and just plain out painful whenever he attempted to work on them. He had to keep treating the area with the numbing solution, but before it was all said and done it was still painful.

I'm talk that removed a total of 9 pounds of fat from my body. Three of which came from my arms and all the rest from the remaining areas.

I know for a fact that there are results in my arms, because I'm able to slide on a jacket that before was really tight and snug around my arms, which is why I never wore it. Now, it fits perfectly.

On my abs, the jury is still out. After all the reading I've done about the procedure I think this is something that you have to wait a few months to actually see results. Even on the actual creators website of the procedure all his post-op pics are 4 to 6 months after. I also think that the reason a lot of people are so unhappy early on is, because the procedure both Smart Lipo and Vaser are being marketed as though you will see immediate results.

Three days post up I had heave draining of fluids and then it stopped. I was practically up and moving around on my second day. And felt better than ever by day four.

At this time my only complaint is that my abs are as hard as a rock right now. I still have a bit of a stomach, but it is very hard. While naked I do think that I look better than before. There was definitely some contouring. But I'm just wondering what a man will think if they touch it. It is really really hard. It feels as though there is some hard object inside. There are also lump balls in my groin/pelvic area and I had no treatment in that area at all, so I don't know what that is about.

My doctor has told me that it will go away in time. But after doing reading on here I can't say that I'm confident that it will. From what I've read this hardness and lumps is a result of the procedure being performed incorrectly.


I think it's really hard for someone to say...

I think it's really hard for someone to say that they had good or bad results if it's there first time ever getting this type of work done.

For nothing else my results were bad, because the doctor put puncture marks all over my body. Six months after getting vaser I had surgery again from that used traditional lipsuction. The first thing the doctor said to me was why he mad so many entry marks and why didn't he place them in areas where they were concealed.

With my 2nd procedure my results turned AMAZING and I look like a different woman. This doctor was able to do this by placing 2 entry marks for each area. 1 mark for each thigh, 1 mark for each arm, 2 marks for the stomach.

The doctor that performed my vaser made at least 9 entry holes just in my stomach area alone. At some point throughout the procedure he started just jabbing and jabbing away saying that he couldn't find anymore fat to remove and when it was all said and done my body practically looked the same. Yes, I was more sculpted in a sense, but not anything noticable.

I think my experience and results had more to do with the doctor that performed and maybe not Vaser itself. I have since learned that any doctor can perform cosmetic procedures and this is what happen to me.

Dr. Z

When I first met him and he was essentially interested in getting my money he was very comforting and made me feel great about going forward. After the procedure was over I never heard from him again. He never once called to see how I was doing or even to schedule me for a follow up.

I was thinking about getting this done on my upper arms too. They are pretty saggy from weight loss- I can pinch about 2 inches of skin under my arm bone. I was worried about it leaving even more flabby skin though, does the skin tighten up after the fat is removed? do you have any pictures you could share?
Thanks!

Thanks so much for posting an update. I think you're right that the doctor has so much to do with it. Glad to hear you (eventually) got the results you were looking for.

I also had hard spots after lipo. Mine took about 3 years to go away.
