Following the procedure, Jennifer has dropped from a size 10 to 12 around her hips to a size six to eight and says she is stunned at how effective the simple operation was.She told Mail Online: 'I'm completely amazed at the results after just one operation. I feel like I've dropped a dress size - and I have!'
According to the Beau Aesthetica website, the LipoSelection Vaser procedure offers 'an alternative to the harsh techniques of traditional liposuction' and 'uses state-of-the-art ultrasound technology designed to gently reshape your body'.
After the procedure, which took about two hours, Jennifer was told to rest for two days before doing anything too strenuous.
But yesterday, the actress was keen to show off the results as she went out for lunch with her Hollyoaks 'sister' Claire Cooper.

Wearing a cropped floral bustier top and high-waisted jeans, Jennifer appeared to be in high spirits as she enjoyed lunch with Claire at Liverpool's The Neighbourhood Cafe.
Before the operation, Jennifer had a 26in waist and 32in hip, but displayed her trimmer figure as she went out shopping yesterday.
The actress previously said she sometimes felt self-conscious about her shapely rear, although she had learned to opt for clothes which flattered her curvy figure.

She said recently: 'My bum is certainly a big one. Me and my bum have a love-hate relationship.
'There's nothing I can do about it! It's quite a shelf, it's got meat, it wobbles and it sticks out.
'Me and my friends laugh about it all the time. It takes up nearly the whole dancefloor!'
