Pre Operative Care
Post Operative Care
While admitted, intravenous antibiotics are given to prevent infection and pain is managed accordingly. Wound dressings are changed as required. Upon discharge from the hospital, oral antibiotic, pain reliever and anti swelling medications will be provided. Compression garments are worn 24/7 in the first week. On the second to third week compression garment can be taken off at bedtime.
Temporary bruising, swelling, numbness, soreness or burning sensation may be noted. Patient usually returns to work and resume normal daily activities after 5 to 14 days. Strenuous activities can be resumed after two to four weeks. It may take one to six months for the swelling and bruising to totally subside depending upon the amount of fat and the areas treated.
Large areas of treatment have to be separated into two or more sessions. Liposuction could not help decrease the size of large internal organs or the high fibrous content in subcutaneous areas.
Risks and Complications
Risks are inherent to any surgical procedure. The most common risks are infection, asymmetry, rippling of the skin, pigmentation changes, injury to the skin, fluid retention and/or excessive loss of blood. Too much of the liposuction may increase the risk of bleeding, shock and fatal fat embolism. You can reduce your risks by closely following your surgeon’s instructions both before and after surgery.
How soon will I see my results? What is the recovery time ?
This varies with the extensiveness of the procedure — the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and so on. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the procedure with the final result at around 3 to 6 months. It is important that you establish realistic expectations through discussion with your doctor.
What about future weight gain / fat migrating to other areas?
This is a common misperception. Following your VASOR Lipo procedure, should you experience weight gain or loss, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body. Once you have fat removed, it is gone and, assuming a healthy lifestyle of proper diet and exercise, it will not return or migrate. However, because fat is necessary to a healthy body, some essential fat layers in any given area remain untreated. If you do gain a significant amount of weight, the remaining fatty tissue will expand. Normal aging changes can also be expected.
