Severe Lower Back Pain After Vaser Liposuction

I had vaser lipo on my back, love handles, upper and lower stomach and have woke up 5 days later with bad back pain. Really severe!! I can feel liquid in my back still where i think its not draining propably. I have had 5 aftercare drainage massaages but the last 2 werent as good as the first 3 so i feel that the therapist didnt drain it enough, has anybody else experienced this?

Vaser and back pain

Back pain after vaser liposcution should be evaluated by your doctor however it may be fluid like a seroma that needs to be removed, or it could jsut be post-op pain that may get better on its own.

Your concern is very possible extra fluid. Proper massage therapy is helpful. Please discuss with your surgeon for his plan.
