I am getting nervouse about my procedure on Monday. I am having my love handles, upper and lower abs done. I have read soo many great reviews on here but if you have any advice to give please let me know!!! Thanks
Hello everyone, I am getting nervouse about my...
Went in today for my Vaser Lipo. I ended up having...
The procedure itself was painless. The worst part was getting the numbing solution. I think it was more of an awkward feeling having a needle in odd areas poke you. Next came the vaser itself to break up the fat. At times you could feel a mild vibration but overall this step was easy. now for the lipo itself- it too was pain free but at first it felt odd because you could see the fat going in the tube. There was no pain but I did have a couple tender spots and as soon as I mentioned it to the doctor he immediately avoided that area.
It took about 4 hours. I was up the whole time and chatted with the nurse and docor. At the end of the procedure several of the nurses came in as the doctor was "fine tuning". It was great that they all checked my areas out and gave their opinion on where needed a bit more, etc. They also pushed all the extra solution out of the areas, this did not hurt at all, it was like a slow rolling massage method. Then after that I was cleaned up, bandaged and put in my garment. The garment is super tight. I can tell its not going to be fun wearing it!
The total fat removed was equal to 2 liters of soda! I saw an instant difference. I went home in no pain at all.
4 hours later: : OUCH! Pain killers wore off and I'm leaking majorly. I popped a Vicodin and had some saltines and then felt better. However, I now feel the soreness. On a scale 1-10 it's a 6. I also feel ansy and can't get comfortable.
I'll post pics soon.
1 day post op- last night was add, lots of back...
Follow up appointment today : they changed my dressings and took measurements and pictures. I lost 5" in my stomach already and I'm swollen! I am very bruised everywhere (I bruise easy). my next appointment is one week. I stopped the pain pills and went to Tylenol. It seems to be ok and I don't feel sick.
The garment: it's not bad. The one my doctors office proved is pretty comfortable considering what it is. They suggested I may have to go I a spanx if it gets lose. The key right now is to keep the skin tight to the body so no lumps form.
DAY 3- feeling normal finally! Switched to Tylenol...
6 weeks post op: Still lumpy, just started...
Still lumpy, just started endermology so we shall see how it goes. One thing to think about too is the INCISION SCARS - be prepared there are LOTS of them! Can't wear a bikini yet- I still seem to be slightly swollen and skin is discolored a bit.
5 month REVIEW Well now that I have had enough...
Well now that I have had enough time to heal I feel the need to add a post of the REALISTIC results:
IM LUMPY STILL
MY SKIN IS DISCOLORED
IM NUMB IN SOME SPOTS
The office staff has ONLY contacted me to sell me more services. There has been zero follow up on my care. When I brought the lumpiness to their attention after the procedure I WAS PRESSURED TO BUY ANOTHER TREATMENT TO "EVEN OUT" my procedure. However I DIDN'T BUY ANYTHING FROM THEM.
I'm very disappointed with the results and the overall service AFTER THEY STEAL YOUR CASH!!!!
After researching 5 doctors in a 45 miles radius, I chose this facility based on their overall knowledge, experience and reputation. There were several places that were larger and provides all types of plastic surgery. However when researching other doctors I was disappointed with staff, return calls, knowledge and doctors credentials. This facility was through and very professional.
