Hi Def Recovery
Question: Why is the healing/recovery time longer for VASER Hi-Def Liposuction procedures vs. other types of Liposuction?
Answer: VASER Hi-Def Liposuction is much more involved than other types of Lipo. VASER Hi-Def Lipo uses ultrasound technology vs. laser technology which virtually “melts” the fat. With Hi-Def Lipo, the surgeon is able to remove higher volumes of fat than with other body sculpting procedures such as Smart Lipo.
The fat removed with VASER Hi-Def is more on the subcutaneous level thus responsible for the surgeon to create that defined look of 6-pack abs or chiseled arms. The sculpting involved takes precision and more time to achieve anticipated results. Taking into consideration of all of the above, the recovery time for say an upper and lower abdomen procedure is 3 weeks before you can exercise, about a full week off work, compression garments to aid with skin contraction, and compression needs to be worn for at least 2 weeks.
This all may sound a little overwhelming, but our patients are so enamored by the results they are stating that it is well worth it!
