Swelling and Lumps After Vaser Lipo

How long will it take for the swelling after Vaser Liposuction to go down? Will the lumpiness even out in the next couple of months? I have heard that Mesotherapy may help with dealing with any lumpiness left as a result of the operation. Would you recommend this? Would treatments such as 'Velasmooth' or 'Accent' have any success for this?

Swelling and Lumps After Vaser Lipo

Swelling after #Vaser liposuction is not uncommon. Gentle #walking may increase circulation and help to alleviate swelling. But you must not strain or push yourself. Also, if you were provided a post-procedure #garment, be sure you are wearing it until prescribed otherwise by your doctor. The purpose of the post-procedure #garment is to provide some gentle #support and to reduce swelling. If it feels too tight or causes pain, take it off. Many patients wear the #elastic garment for several weeks after procedures, as directed by their doctor; some choose to wear it longer for several months for comfort.

The lumps may be diminish with time. If not, your doctor can provide suggestions for this concern. In-office medi-spa treatments may be an option. But, it's best to be patient in the meantime.

The final results of the procedure are typically most noticeable 2-4 months following the #Vaser. So, you must have patience. The swelling will gradually diminish while the contours of the treated area(s) can continue to improve up to one year post procedure; becoming more apparent in appearance. If you have concerns about your healing, or pain that you question to be unusual, it is important to call your plastic surgeon to discuss these further asked to be examined.

Personally, I would not recommend mesotherapy.  All of our lipo patients at Rejuvenation Center get Endermologie treatments before and after surgery.  This helps a lot and is safe.  Just make sure the Endermologie therapist has lots of experience.
