Choosing to have surgical Vaser lipo is a big decision, so at Transform we take away the headache by providing a friendly, relaxed and simple process built around your treatment and recovery. The first step is to meet one of our trained patient advisors. In this meeting you’ll have the chance to discuss why you might want surgical Vaser lipo, what’s involved, what your recovery might look like, and how much it might cost. If you decide you’d like to find out more, you’ll then enjoy a free consultation with one of our surgeons. Here, you’ll get a full understanding of the procedure, with the benefits and risks outlined in full by one of the country’s leading Vaser lipo practitioners. And if you decide that you don’t want the procedure, that’s fine – you won’t be charged a penny. If you do choose to book your surgical Vaser lipo procedure, we’ll arrange a time for you to pop in and see one of our clinic nurses for some pre-op tests and procedures. You’ll next visit us on the day of your procedure, when you can talk with your surgeon before the operation and meet the time who’ll look after you during your general anaesthetic. Once the procedure is done, you’ll be given information about your recovery – including details about compression garments and when you can return to work. You’ll normally be able to go home on the same day as your procedure. As a Transform patient, you’ll have automatic access to our three-year aftercare programme. There’s also a helpline available 24/7, so you can always get answers to any questions or concerns. Finally, a later follow-up appointment will give you and your surgeon the chance to check that your recovery is on track.
In general, you will need much less time to recover from surgical Vaser lipo than you would for a traditional liposuction treatment. Most patients can return home on the same day of their treatment and will be back in work within a few days (with conventional liposuction, it is recommended that you take two weeks off work). You will also need to wear a compression garment. But like with your return to work, it will be a much quicker process than conventional liposuction. Instead of wearing the compression garment for six months, with Vaser lipo you’ll normally need it for just two to six weeks.
