I had Vaser Lipo and I guide a week ago, the swelling is going down but still experiencing pain. Any suggestions? (photo)

I've had nightly headaches as finding a comfortable position is difficult, I was told it would feel tight at first, but it feels like a bunch of chicken wire under my skin, painful and uncomfortable, my doctor said he uses permanent stitches, will this improve over time?

I appreciate your question. I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients.  Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time. The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery. Best of luck!

VASER Liposuction--Post swelling/bruising/pain

It is not abnormal if you are experiencing headaches 1 week post liposuction but I do suggest calling your physician who performed the procedure to find his/her protocol if problem persists. Having pain, swelling and bruising 1 week post VASER is completely normal. In my practice patients have a post op protocol they follow including: wearing their garments, seeing a lymphatic massage therapist, hyperbaric oxygen treatments and non invasive RF treatments to speed up the healing and reducing the recovery time drastically. Please consult with an expert if needed. Best regards, Dr. Berger
