I had vaser combined with smart lipo to tighten the skin after the fat was removed. Wow! What a difference! I started with upper and lower abs where I had a li8flong battle with a pooching stomach. The procedure itself hurt like hell but now at 4 weeks post-op, I am astounded at my body! I went back to get love handles and inner thighs done. I still have a lot of swelling but can see a huge difference. The flanks and thighs were way less painful than abs (which my surgeon had warned me about ahead of time).
If you are only a few days or even a couple of weeks post-op, please give it some time. And wear the compression garment ALL THE TIME. It makes a big difference in the shape your body will take ultimately on. When the money tree grows again I'm going back to have my upper arms and "Bra Bulge" area on my back done.
