Now that all the anticipation and excitement of having Vaser Liposuction is over, it’s time to ensure you get the best results by taking care of yourself post procedure.
We’ve put together some tips that will ensure a speedy, successful and safe recovery and that will ensure you are nothing short of delighted with the results.
Always wear your post-procedure dressings and compression garment
Once your Vaser Lipo has been completed, it is essential that you wear the compression garment that your medical team supplied you with. We will let you know how long you will need to wear the garment, but it is usually around 4 weeks. Wearing the garment will help to improve circulation and in turn reduce swelling and any minor discomfort you may be feeling, all of which is completely normal and nothing to worry about.
Don’t worry if you notice any leakage – it can be alarming at first, but it is all totally normal. This will usually happen for the first 24-48 hours and the liquid will be a clear colour or have a light orange or pink tint to it. It’s reassuring to remember that leaking is part of the body’s recovery, but you might also want to wear looser or dark clothing and to use a mattress protector or old bed sheets for the first days after your procedure.
Eat and drink the right things
Drinking lots of water will help your body to eliminate any toxins and to reduce any swelling you are experiencing. Try to choose healthy foods such as fruit, protein and vegetables as these will help to really flush out your system – plus they make you feel alive with vitality! Also, try to eat foods that are high in fibre to reduce constipation or bloating.
Body sculpting using Vaser Liposuction allows your body to recover much quicker than traditional lipo. If you are a keen gym goer then you might be itching to get back to the running machine or weights. We will give you tailored advice suited to your needs, but general advice is not to engage in any strenuous exercise for at least 4 weeks. However, light exercise such as walking can be great for circulation and reducing swelling.
Have a little patience – it will be worth it
Of course you will want to see the fantastic results of your Vaser lipo and you will only need to wait a few days to see just how much your body has changed for the better. However, final results are not apparent until around 6 weeks after your procedure so have a little patience.
We will of course give you much more in-depth and personalised advice at your initial consultation so why not make an appointment with our professional team today?
