After your procedure, you will be asked to wear a compression garment to control swelling and aid in the healing process. You can return to work within five days to ten days.Results are most often seen within the first three months.
Dr. Garcia makes very small incisions in discreet locations to minimize the chance of visible scarring. Should any scarring occur, it will fade over time.
The cost of VASERlipo® depends on the number of areas treated as well as anesthesia fees and doctor’s fees. Dr. Garcia will provide you with an accurate cost estimate during your consultation at Imagos Plastic Surgery.
