Two weeks ago I had vaser done on my abdomen, love handles, and inner thighs. With the fat removed from my inner thighs it was then transferred to my breasts. I had almost 4 liters removed and 250cc was then placed in each breast.
I will start by saying that I am an avid exerciser, I am in good cardiovascular shape, unfortunately no matter how many hours I train I could not lose the belly fat or thigh fat. I weighed 150 and wore a size 8. I have had one child, she is three and have never had any surgery prior to this.
Now i will be very honest.... I am very tough but thought the recovery was far worse than I had expected. The actual procedure was fine. I did take the pill to make me feel sedated. I felt some slight pinches every now and then but overall was fine. They did removed a lot and I was there for 5hours. Okay so I was given post op interactions but didn't get any pain meds because I truly thought I would be fine.
So the night of the procedure was horrible, thank goodness I had some leftover pain meds from my husbands knee surgery!! I did drain the entire night and was in extreme pain. The next day was okay very sore but no longer draining, mostly laid in bed. Unfortunately I didn't take anytime off work so I had the surgery on Friday and was working on Monday. If I did it again I would have taken the next week off. Though i made it was in constant pain, I am a hygienist so I couldn't take meds while working but did keep up on ibuprofen.
During that first week I noticed the most painful part was in the evening when the swelling was the worst. I did keep the compression garment on 24/7 for the first week except for showering. I bruised incredibly bad but I always bruise very easily. After the first week things got much better. It's now been 2 weeks and I feel a ton better, I still am sore to pressure and still swell at the end of the day but overall feel sooo much better. So if anyone in thinking of doing this my recommendation would be to take a week off from work.
I had my post op check and the doctor was happy with how the healing is going, I have noticed a difference but hope for more dramatic results once the healing is complete. My breast are not dramatically bigger but definitely more full! That part of the procedure was very easy very little pain! My bruising is almost completely gone but do notice little lumps and bumps that my doctor told me to massage. I will be having a lymphatic massage is a couple weeks. I will post the before and after pictures at my 8 weeks post op.
