Had Vaser Lipo on my arms, upper/lower abs, flanks, and small areas of back. Procedure was on 3/30/10.
The arms were done first and was not painful at all. It was a tad bit uncomfortable, but that was expected considering I was going through something I had never experienced. But once we got moving it wasn't painful at all.
All the other areas. I can't say the same. Most of the areas were tender and just plain out painful whenever he attempted to work on them. He had to keep treating the area with the numbing solution, but before it was all said and done it was still painful.
I'm talk that removed a total of 9 pounds of fat from my body. Three of which came from my arms and all the rest from the remaining areas.
I know for a fact that there are results in my arms, because I'm able to slide on a jacket that before was really tight and snug around my arms, which is why I never wore it. Now, it fits perfectly.
On my abs, the jury is still out. After all the reading I've done about the procedure I think this is something that you have to wait a few months to actually see results. Even on the actual creators website of the procedure all his post-op pics are 4 to 6 months after. I also think that the reason a lot of people are so unhappy early on is, because the procedure both Smart Lipo and Vaser are being marketed as though you will see immediate results.
Three days post up I had heave draining of fluids and then it stopped. I was practically up and moving around on my second day. And felt better than ever by day four.
At this time my only complaint is that my abs are as hard as a rock right now. I still have a bit of a stomach, but it is very hard. While naked I do think that I look better than before. There was definitely some contouring. But I'm just wondering what a man will think if they touch it. It is really really hard. It feels as though there is some hard object inside. There are also lump balls in my groin/pelvic area and I had no treatment in that area at all, so I don't know what that is about.
My doctor has told me that it will go away in time. But after doing reading on here I can't say that I'm confident that it will. From what I've read this hardness and lumps is a result of the procedure being performed incorrectly.
