How Much Swelling Can I Expect From Vaser Lipo?
Liposuction is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure that effectively removes fat from underneath the skin. Most procedures involve one of two popular methods; traditional liposuction or VASER liposuction.
Vaser lipo uses ultrasound waves to break up fat after which it is removed by traditional suction methods. Traditional liposuction involves breaking up the fat by sticking a tube or cannula to give it its medical term, under the skin and passing it backwards and forwards. This process involves incisions to be made in the skin and can be quite rough on the areas being treated.
Vaser is a much more gentle way of breaking up fat and therefore less swelling will be apparent once the procedure is complete. However, it is important to remember that Vaser liposuction is a surgical procedure and that some swelling is normal and to be expected. The results of liposuction are well worth the short period of discomfort you may feel during the period before the swelling disappears.
