How Long Do Vaser Liposuction Results Last?

Written by: |

Do you have areas of stubborn fat that you’re unhappy with? And no matter how much you commit to diet and exercise, they won’t budge? If this is the case, you may want to opt for Vaser liposuction. This procedure stands for Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy at Resonance, and it is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that removes fat deposits from under your skin.

Vaser liposuction is seen as a more gentle and controlled alternative to other forms of liposuction, and you can often see some great results. However, once you have these results, how long do they last? We have all the answers for you below. 

How soon after Vaser liposuction will you see results?

Many people expect to see immediate fat loss after a Vaser liposuction, but they’ll often be disappointed as that isn’t how the procedure works. While the fat is removed fully on the day of the procedure, swelling masks the results until you’re fully healed. Once you’ve had the surgery, your healing process will look a little bit like this:

  • Straight away, you’ll notice your body is a bit bruised and swollen, especially in the area where you’ve targeted the fat loss. You most likely won’t see any results from the procedure yet.
  • Over the next 24-48 hours post-procedure, you’ll need to use sterilised cotton pads to dress the affected area, as it will most likely be weeping fluid. 
  • There’s a high chance you’ll be provided with a compression garment that you’ll have to wear for several weeks to reduce any swelling and also ensure your skin placement is optimal. 
  • After around three to six months, you’ll start to notice the fat loss and see results in your targeted area. This is because your body has started to settle into its modified form. However, because everyone is different, you may see the results faster or longer than others. 

How long do Vaser liposuction results last?

One of the best things about the results of liposuction is that the results can be permanent. However, this is all down to you as the patient and the steps you take after the procedure. You cannot sit down every day and eat what you want and expect your body to stay the same. Instead, you must follow a healthy diet and exercise regime to ensure the fat doesn’t grow back.

If you don’t maintain your post-lipo weight, then there’s a good chance that the fat can return. But you don’t have to stress too much, as there are a few tips we have found for you to help maintain a healthy lifestyle and ensure you get the most out of your results for the longest amount of time. 

How can you extend the longevity of your results?

Here are the top tips we’ve discovered to help you maintain your post-lipo body and weight for as long as possible:

Maintain a healthy diet

One of the best ways to avoid any fat returning to your targeted area is by maintaining a healthy diet and consciously eating each day. We recommend introducing a good combination of vegetables and fruits into your daily diet, such as four servings of vegetables and three of fruit. Some other ways you can upgrade your diet include eating whole grains over refined grains, consuming more lean protein, and eating more healthy fats such as nuts, olive oil, and avocado.

You should continue eating three balanced meals a day and never skip meals to try and maintain your fat loss. This is because skipping meals often leads to weight gain. If your body isn’t receiving the nutrition and energy it needs, it’ll store fat rather than remove it. This is counteractive for your Vaser liposuction results. 

Drink plenty of water

Hydration is key to maintaining your post-procedure Vaser liposuction results. Not only does staying hydrated help contribute to better health, but it can also help drastically with weight management. This is because drinking water can help with your metabolism and aid digestion, ensuring no fat molecules are being left behind.

Throughout the day, ensure you’re drinking around three litres overall if you’re a woman and almost four if you’re a man. If you’ve met your calorie intake for the day or eaten your three meals and snacks, you might be mistaking your thirst for hunger. Therefore, drinking water might make you feel less hungry while also aiding your hydration. 

Always be moving

Alongside a balanced and healthy diet, you need to be moving as much as possible. If you have limitations, then you probably want to talk to the professional who performed your procedure about the best movements for you, as well as what exercises you can do during recovery.

Overall, you should be introducing regular exercise into your weekly regime. Instead of seeing it as a chore, try and find something that you enjoy doing, such as swimming, and introduce it into your week as many times as possible. Even if you find that you’re busy and don’t have the time, it’s important to try and introduce movement for just a few minutes in the day, as it will have better results than not moving at all. 

As well as regularly exercising, try to avoid being sedentary throughout the day. Some of the ways you can increase your movement include the following:

  • Always take the stairs instead of a lift or the escalators
  • Use your lunch break to go on a short walk 
  • If on the phone, stay on your feet and try to walk around
  • Introduce a standing or moving desk into your office
  • Park far away so you can always walk the extra distance
  • Swap out driving for walking or cycling to work

Try to reduce stress

When you’re more stressed, you’re more likely to gain weight. Not only do you start to give up on your diet and exercise, but stress hormones have been found to affect your metabolism. It shows that you have stronger cravings for unhealthy foods, and your fat storage increases due to increased cortisol levels.

If you’re finding that you’re feeling more stressed than usual, here are a few ways you can reduce these stress levels and help you feel calmer:

  • Spend more time outdoors, getting fresh air and being at one with nature.
  • Try meditation. There are different kinds, such as guided meditation, so find the one that best suits you.
  • Try mindfulness, where you focus on being in the moment, as well as focusing on the positive and being grateful for what you have in life.
  • Maintain a good sleep routine, where you get your eight hours every night so you’re refreshed for the day.
  • Spend time doing things that make you smile, such as being with friends and family or going to the zoo.
