Sensitivity is common after liposuction

Regardless of the type of technology used during the lipoplasty procedure, skin hypersensitivity is not uncommon. In my practice, part of the post-lipo recivery involves post-lipocare manual manipulations and skin massage that helps expedite normalization of skin sensitivity. You may benefit from gentle skin massages in the areas of hypersensitivity to help return you to normal within a few weeks.

Skin sensitivity after Vaser Liposuction

It is not usual for you to have increased sensitivity, numbness or tingling for several weeks after Vaser liposuction or any liposuction.  This goes away after a while.  I tell my patients that it will feel like they are wearing a leather garment.  Give your body time to heal..
