How Long Is The Recovery After VASER® Liposuction?
When following a healthful diet and exercising regularly just aren’t enough to get rid of cellulite, Vaser® Liposuction is a safe way to eliminate unwanted fat deposits from many parts of the body.
Vaser® Liposuction is a minimally invasive medical procedure that helps shrink fat cells and removes unwanted body fat. Using state-of-the-art technology, you can erase stubborn areas of fat and chisel out your abdominals, glutes and triceps muscles you have worked so hard to develop.
The Vaser® Liposuction Technique
With Vaser® ultrasound technology, postoperative pain and recovery are decreased when compared to traditional liposuction. When tumescent fluid is injected into the treatment site, it expands the treatment area while shrinking blood vessels. With this gentle technique, there is less postoperative swelling, bruising and pain.
Vaser® Liposuction Recovery Time
Downtime after undergoing traditional liposuction can be up to six weeks or more, depending on the area and amount of fat removed. With the Vaser® technique, recovery time generally ranges from three to four weeks. Exact recovery periods depend on several factors including:
– Number of areas treated
– Amount of fat removed
– Your body’s mechanism for healing
Just as every patient is different, so is the recovery time. Generally, patients can expect to return to work in 10 to 14 days after the procedure. Although it’s normal to want to return to normal daily activities such as exercise, it’s important to give your body a chance to completely heal. Most people are able to return light activities after two to four weeks, but heavy lifting should to be avoided. Patients can resume all regular activities four weeks after surgery.
