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.”

“Let’s just say I was big(XL size), and the avg amt removed each area is 3 ltrs- only my arms was under 3 but tat’s a lot for arms (that explains why it hurts so bad!)…so, its not a small amt removed..i was in pain – clearly. But because i saw results after each procedure, and got wiser with the pain mgmt techniques, i went for more procedures…
Just FYI – i start my massage as early as 2nd or 3rd dayt post-session. The stitches were not even removed, but soooo much trapped fluids were removed within those 1st few sessions – such a relived! This masseur is based in Far East Shpg ctr as well – so it was literally a ‘go to doc to remove stitches’ then ‘go for massage’ .. Did you go to the other one at Tg Pagar or something?? As far as i know, there’s only 1 masseur skilled in post-lipo msg. I was given her contact by the nurses in TLC/Reves.”

“Jennifer is highly recommended.. she seems to be the only niche specialist in post lipo massage around in singapore after my search.. you must try her out and see the results for yourself..every time she massages for me I feel super relieved of the swelling and look more shapely.. it is not painful at all! Her clientele is super huge.. all referred to by local and overseas lipo doctors, that’s why she is super famous but her charges are reasonable and she is really genuinely helpful in giving useful post-care advice.. I have been on my road to healing and after every one of Jennifer’s session, I feel increasingly lighter and slimmer!
It’s so important to start the post-care massage within the first week of post liposuction, I was very worried that day when I came back from Medan because I was like imobilized … cannot move.. stiff all over.. and when I called Jennifer her schedule was all packed, but she is so nice to agree to do housecall for me very late in the night just to help me with my swell and stiffness! Instantly after her magic healing touch I felt much better and can move!! also had the urge to go toilet, she told me it’s because i was dispelling the unwanted stuff in my body..”

“Wonderful service, I feel so relieved after the post care massage! I had so much problem trying to move a few days after my surgery but luckily the doctor referred me to Jannifer and she was such a great help. Her massage is very soothing and makes me want to sleep everytime I go for her sessions. After she is done, I feel my body is gradually less stiff and I can move much better. Thanks, Jannifer. You have made my day.”
