VASER Hi Definition Liposuction / Body Contouring
It takes weeks to see the results of liposuction and swelling can last for months. Massage, RF treatments, Venus Legacy and hyperbaric oxygen will drastically reduce swelling. The type of swelling each patient will experience will be different, but commonly it is described as a firm tightness or heaviness. Please seek an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
Swelling after Liposuction
Any kind of liposuction (Vaser, Power-assisted, laser, SmartLipo, CoolLipo, etc.) results in swelling, which usually peaks around 10 days later. It can often feel firm or hard, not like sloshy water, but more the consistency of a foam water-ski life vest (? - that's the best analogy I could come up with). It slowly goes down over time, but does take several months to resolve completely. Usually by 1 month after, it is about 50% gone, but everyone heals at his or her own pace.
