vaser booked for dr nurein, liverpool - any advice please - Liverpool, GB

Hi I've been researching Vaser Lipo for quite some...

Hi I've been researching Vaser Lipo for quite some time now and after a few consulations decided to book the.proceedure with Dr Nurein at Liverpool next week. Im having my inner and outer thighs and knees done with fat transfer to the hollows in my hip area, just above my outer thighs. I have also booked several lymphatic drainange massages with a local therapist and have started taking arnica in the hope to might keep the swelling down and minimize the bruising. Has anyone had a similar proceedure recently, any advice greatly received .....

Day one - post op

Well I attended the clinic yesterday to have my procedure, I had to wait a few hours because there was a delay but the staff made me comfortable and where very friendly. Prior to the procedure I had a further consultation with Mr Nurein and we discussed my procedure, risks etc and also I wanted a further area doing which he was happy to do. I can only praise Mr Nurein and his team during the procedure, he was extremely proffessional and very caring about my needs asking regularly if I was okay or if it was hurting, it was very uncomfortable at times but he stopped when needed to add more anesthetic. I also had fat transfer to the hollows between my hip and thigh bones (see before pictures when uploaded). The procedure took around 2 and half hours then half an hour to clean and dress the incisions and put me in my garment. I was given all the necessary pain relief, antibiotics, dressings etc to take home and I have arranged for a medical friend to remove my stitches in a weeks time. I must say I most definately couldn't have driven home as i experienced alot of pain to my left knee during and after the procedure and struggled to bend my legs to get into the car. I haven't had much in the way of drainage either but im only 8 hours post op. I feel very sore and swollen this morning but don't require any pain relief at present so I suppose thats a good thing. Just to update I had my inner/outer thighs, inner and tops of knees, flanks and fat transfer. I really can't praise Mr Nurein and his surgical team enough. I will keep you updated with my healing progress so watch this space :)

Pre-op photos

Post-op 9 days

Here are my after photographs post-op at day 9, as you can see not much difference at all but I'm very swollen, I've uploaded these today at post-op day 13 and I'm still very much the same, however my compression garment feels less tight which is a bonus. I'm staying optimistic at this stage for the results I hope for. Will try and post further photographs in a week or so.
