Is Venus Freeze Safe After Traditional Liposuction?

Is Venus Freeze safe to use soon after traditional liposuction? How long should I wait to use this procedure on my abdomen? Thanks!

Hi Rachel,

Wait until any "numbness" is completely gone after liposuction, so you can feel the heat from the Venus Freeze and avoid being burned.  Good luck, and go for it,

Some physcians are using this as early as one week after liposuction but this is not widely advocated. The radiofrequency energy can be turned off and the magnetic pulse therapy can be used as a stand alone therapy soon after surgery but this will vary with surgeon preference.
