Question: Should I have more fat removed if I see no difference after Vaser Lipo?
Answer: The amount of fat removed during Vaser lipo is entirely dependent on each patient’s own needs and requirements – the treatment is completely tailored to each individual rather than adopting a ‘one size fits all’ approach. Generally speaking, the most amount of fat that can safely be removed from the body is 3 to 4 litres, which is about 6 to 8 pounds of fat. If a greater amount of fat than this is removed in one treatment, then it can cause serious complications and risks.
It’s also important for liposuction patients to remember that results aren’t instantaneous; while some difference can be noticeable immediately after the Vaser lipo procedure, it can take a few months before the full results from your Vaser treatment can be seen.
Results from Vaser lipo can gradually increase over a number of weeks, with the body’s shape continually improving as the body’s surrounding tissues begin to heal. As a general guide, most people experience full results from Vaser liposuction within three to four months.*
To help patients have a realistic expectation of what results they can personally achieve from Vaser liposuction, EF MEDISPA offers a free initial consultation with a Surgeon to discuss what results you hope to get from Vaser lipo and what results you can personally expect to see on your body.
