The six packs vaser liposuction:
Some patients male and female are asking for a six packs liposculpture.

Immediately after your liposuction surgery:
you will be leaking red or orange tincted fluid from the incisions for one or two days. You will apply dry gauzes on the incisions. You will be wearing a compressive garment for 6 weeks.
The first two weeks:
you should be resting quietly , numbness and pain in the treated areas as well bruising and swelling are normal. Avoid salt and sugars for the first 2 weeks.
No sports or intense physical activity is permitted up to six weeks.
Swelling will slowly decrease and some residual swelling may last up to 4 months.
The results of liposuction surgery are technically permanent because fat cells have been removed. However, you should maintain your body weight and watch your diet. Following liposuction, if you continue to eat excess calories, fat will no longer be stored in the cells that have been removed, but will be stored in other body areas. You will accumulate fat in a proportionate way all over your body, but the bulges will not come back again.
The basic message: keep your weight stable for a long lasting result.
Fortunately, significant complications from liposuction surgery are infrequent. Your specific risks will be discussed during your consultation.
