I had Liposonix done on my anterior thighs 4 months ago. Sometimes when I rest, I feel shooting pain in nerves, in right anterior thigh area, at random time intervals. Is this normal?
Thank you for your input after your Liposonix treatment.
Yes, this is totally normal - can do that for months after treatment. Just like with liposuction or other ultrasound devices, such as Ultherapy, there can be temporary nerve injury. Nerves tend to "let you know" when they are injured and trying to heal. They will cause those annoying twinges and tingles and shooting pains. And, it is always random (but can occur more when you are rubbing the area - like in a massage, or working out because you are stretching the nerves. I would not worry about this unless it is really painful. Nerve tenderness after Liposonix usually resolves or several months, but in some rare cases, it can take longer. Please call if you have any other concerns.
What type of people can get Liposonix? Is there any down time after treatment?
The perfect candidate is a person who is close to their ideal size and shape, but need help where diet and exercise won’t work. After treatment, there may be some discomfort (pain), bruising, redness, and swelling, which are generally described as mild. We suggest you wear a 'Body Slimming' type garment after the treatment to help with this and to expedite the recovery process.
