What side effects can be expected from Vaser Lipo?

Vaser liposuction is highly recommended by doctors all over the world because of its state-of-the-art technology and amazing results. With any surgical procedure though comes the risk of side effects. Even though Vaser liposuction is a short, simple procedure, there are a few side effects which you should be aware of. We want you to know about these side effects not to scare you, but to make sure you know exactly what to expect from the procedure and the treatment. We don’t want you to decide to have the treatment without being fully aware of every aspect of the experience.

Thankfully, the side effects of Vaser liposuction are minimal. You may experience slight bruising and swelling of the targeted area, but this will subside after approximately a week. Skin irritation may occur but this is rare. For up to six months after the procedure you may experience a slight loss of sensation in the targeted area, but this is completely normal and not a cause for concern.

How likely is it to experience side effects?

There are many factors which will affect the probability of suffering side effects from a Vaser liposuction treatment. The health of your body before the procedure, as well as your average activity levels and the size of the area targeted by the treatment can all cause the side effects to be more pronounced, but in fact the one factor that all doctors claim to be the most accurate predictor of possible side effects is the doctor himself!

Vaser liposuction utilises technological devices which need to be handled with care by an experienced practitioner. Both the results and side effects of treatment can be directly attributed to the actions of the doctor, rather than the instrument itself. What this means, essentially, is that you need to make sure that you trust the doctor who is going to carry out the procedure, and that he is properly qualified and has extensive experience with Vaser liposuction technology.

In general though, you can expect few side effects from the treatment. If you follow the recovery plan given to you by the surgical team, there is very little chance of experiencing serious side effects and because you will go for follow up sessions every few weeks, you will be able to deal with any medical problems as soon as they arise.
