Shaving after VASER Liposuction. Any suggestions?

I had VASER Lipo to abs/flanks/chest and gynecomastia removal six days ago. I usually shave my torso once a week, as I don't like being hairy. It's probably too sore/tender to at the minute, but when can I start shaving again? And what about the incisions/scars?

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!

I suggest waiting 2 weeks to shave unless its your face.  Massage, hyperbaric oxygen, RF treatments are essential at this time period for healing.  Consult your Best, Dr. Emer.

We don't know anything about you or the details of your procedure. I suspect it will be 6 weeks before you can comfortably shave but you need to ask your surgeon who can monitor your recovery and the status of any wounds.
