Steroids After Vaser Liposuction?

I'm having vaser lipo done soon. My doctor recommended me to take steroides after surgey. but I do not want to use them as I understand its for swelling. I am scared I have heard so many bad things about steroids and I dont think the benifits out wiegh the risks at all. I have herbs for swelling and creams as well as probiotics etc... I have done my homework as far as herbs 4 swelling what happens if I dont take the steroids vs taking them?

I would avoid the herbs and steroids.  I am more concerned with the herbs than steroids.  We use neither with our procedures and have no issues without them.
