Yes, VASERlipo is a minimally invasive liposuction procedure, and there is a short period of rest, typically 12 hours, immediately after the procedure, followed by two to three weeks general recovery when strenuous activities should be avoided. We will also provide a special compression garment to help the skin contract smoothly to the body’s new contours and general instructions for post procedure care.
How soon will I see results
Noticeable results vary according to the amount of fat removed, the number of areas treated, and other factors. Many patients report that they see results immediately after the producer with final results arounds three to four months later. During your consultation Dr. Berkowitz can help you establish realistic expectations.
What about future weight gain or fat migrate to other areas?
Once you have fat removed, it’s gone. 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 experience weight gain or loss after VASERlipo procedure, it will tend to be proportionately distributed over your entire body. Normal aging changes can also be expected.
