“Dear cotters,

I would like to share my experience from my lipo/vaser. I believe that there are many people out there are unaware about the Scar Tissue (Hard Lumps) which started to form during healing process after the lipo/vaser.
After my 1st lipo/vaser, I experience uneven surface on my skin and hard lumps underneath my skin. As I’m in the healing process and I convince myself that it will subside as the time goes by.  I had gone to those beauty salon who self-acclaimed that they are specialist in resolving the hard lumps by offering Manual Lymphatic Drainage Massage (MLD). After several sessions, my problem is not resolved and it added to a higher level of disappointment.

Hereby, I have some pointers to share:
After lipo/Vaser, you will start having bruising, pain, soreness, numbness and lumpiness. Within the 1st two weeks, you may start experiencing tissue swelling.

What is Scar Tissue/Hard Lumps?
During the healing process, the body wills starts to form Scar Tissue (Hard Lumps) whereby it may block the lymph drainage and causes the skin to look uneven, dimpled. When you stretch your body, you may feel abit of tightness, sore and numbness on the lipo/vaser area. Other than compression garment, post-op massage helps to aid to eliminate inflammation and water retention on the areas after lipo/vaser.

Post-op massage is a combination of a gentle and light stroke massage whereby you will feel comfortable and relax on the lipo/vaser area. Throughout the massage, you will not experience any pain or discomfort at all. After the massage, you will feel lighter as the swelling is minimized; Scar Tissue (Hard Lumps) will be less visible and dissolved. You will tend to visit the toilet more often as the fluid is drain through the lymph nodes.

Kindly do your reading and search carefully regarding about post-op care. Please do not have the perception that by doing Manual Lymphatic Drainage massage or Deep Tissue Massage will aid to resolve the formation of scar tissue. I’m glad to found a therapist to resolve my Scar Tissue (Hard Lumps) and she is specialist in post-op massage for vaser/lipo. Most of her clientele is recommended by the local and overseas plastic surgeons.

As I have been a silent reader for several forums, I have decided to speak out and share my experience. Hopefully the above information gives u a better idea.”
