Vaser-Assisted Liposuction FAQS
Pre & Post-Op Prep
During the initial patient consultation, the doctor identifies the patient’s desires for the VASER-Assisted Liposculpture and the possible areas for liposculpturing. The goals of the patient for undergoing this procedure must be realistic and aligned with the doctor’s recommendations. There must be absolute clarity that the patient understands what can and cannot be done.
After this, the discussion centers on the number of areas that need to be treated to achieve the desired body shape, as well as the amount of fat required to perform the VASER-Assisted Liposculpture.
During your consultation with Dr. Matlock, you can expect to:
Discuss your body goals and aspirations.
Prior to your initial consultation, think about the goals you’d like to achieve. What specific concerns do you have with your body and why? Be prepared to discuss the details of your medical history, so that Dr. Matlock can prepare a customized treatment plan just for you. This also allows Dr. Matlock to maximize your one-on-one time during the consultation.
Discuss your medical history.
The consultation will be inclusive and cover your medical problems, the reasons why you are seeking a consultation, and a physical examination if you are local. If this is a virtual consultation, we will ask you to share these details so Dr. Matlock can review them prior to speaking with you.
Discuss pricing and scheduling information.
During the consultation, we will discuss pricing and coordinate scheduling when you are interested in moving forward in undergoing this procedure. We will also create a comprehensive treatment plan so you get the best results!
We understand the travel and scheduling limitations for our patient that are either out-of-state or traveling from another country. We make sure to prioritize scheduling flexibility for traveling patients so that they can make arrangements (including hotels, flights, friends or family members to accompany them, hiring a private duty nurse if traveling alone, or making arrangements at an aftercare facility, if necessary).
Dr. Matlock’s concierge team can assist you with arrangements for sourcing and scheduling private nurses and/or aftercare facilities if needed.

Dr. Matlock’s state-of-the-art surgery center is located right next door. The surgery center measures 5000 ft.² and has three operating rooms, a six-bed recovery area, and three pre-op rooms.
Patients can choose from the following choices for anesthesia: local, local with IV sedation, twilight, or general. 98% of patients request general anesthesia. This decision is between the patient and the anesthesiologists. The anesthesiologist will call the patient the day before the procedure to answer all questions concerning anesthesia care.
In the pre-op room, you will be prepped by the operating room RN and anesthesiologists. Dr. Matlock will then use a surgical marker on the skin to delineate exactly what is to be done during the VASER-Assisted Liposculpture procedure.
You should expect some bruising, swelling and pain after your procedure. It is normal to experience numbness, specifically around the treated areas; this will go away in time.
We will prescribe pain medication to control any discomfort. If you begin to have severe pain post-surgery and during your recovery period, please contact us immediately.
The recovery process is different for everyone, but within a day after your VASER-Assisted Liposculpture, you should be up and walking around.
Excess tumescent fluid will most likely drain from the access points for the first day or two. This fluid may be blood tinged as well.
You may shower on the second or third day following surgery. Depending on the number of areas treated, you may need to be out of work and away from your usual activities for the first week.
Over the next 2-3 weeks, your treated areas may remain very sensitive and strenuous physical activities should be limited. You will need to wear a special compression garment for up to a month to help ensure a good contour to your treated areas. You may resume exercise two weeks post-surgery.
The results of your VASER-Assisted Liposculpture are usually best seen after six weeks, and you will have continued changes out to four months.
Your treated areas should look great and retain their sculptured appearance for as long as you maintain a healthy diet, exercise program, and body weight. To assist in maintaining your new physique, we provide a diet and a personalized exercise program developed by Dr. Matlock.
