VASER Lipo Recovery is a critical component of the VASER liposuction protocol. The first 10 days following your high definition contouring surgery are very important to ensuring your maximum contouring potential.
During your first 10 days following your contouring, you will be scheduled for a minimum of 5 lymphatic massages. The reason why lymphatic massages are so critical to your VASER Lipo Recovery is as follows.
First, you must remember that VASER liposuction’s success stems from its proprietary ultrasound energy which allows for emulsification or melting of your fat. Although 90 to 95 of your fat will be then suctioned off, there is 5% residual fat that is maintained in your body that will smoothly line your body and ensure a smooth contour.
This fat will typically convert to its solid-state within 1 to 2 weeks. It is this conversion phase which is critical to VASER liposuction recovery. If you consider liquid oil in a pan, you will appreciate that the oil always settles to the bottom of the pan.
This is in fact what occurs to the melted fat in your body. When you are laying down, it will be evenly spread throughout your body. However, as you start standing up and walking around, the liquid fat will drain down to the lowest part of your treated areas, typically over the pubic region and the upper buttocks.
The lymphatic massage will encourage your lymph nodes to collect any fluid collections and will help drain out any collections ensuring a smooth contour. In summary, VASER liposuction recovery dictates a regimented series of lymphatic massages performed daily or every other day over the first ten days following surgery.
