AquaShape water-assisted liposuction: better results with less downtime
AquaShape Liposuction, or WAL (water-assisted liposuction) is used to remove pockets of stubborn fat that are difficult to address through diet and exercise. The procedure is used using water stream that disconnects fat cells from your body. Then the fluid and cells are suctioned or drained from the body.
Compared to traditional lipo procedures, water lipo can offer more even results and shorter recovery time with fewer side effects. Water lipo also preserves the viability of fat cells removed during the procedure so they can be implanted in other parts of the body in place of artificial fillers.
Aquashape: what makes it a different kind of liposuction?
Water-assisted liposuction uses a high-pressure spray of anesthetic solution to gently detach fat cells from the tissue. This procedure leaves fat cells are largely intact and usable for transplantation to other parts of the body. This removed fat can be used as a natural filler in place of artificial fillers or implants in the breasts, buttocks, face or hands to plump tissues and reduce wrinkles and tissue loss caused by aging. The results are only affected over time by the body’s natural aging process. Using a patient’s own fat reduces complications and additional treatments associated with implants and artificial fillers. Patients also find that skin-tightening treatments can improve the look of areas where a larger volume of fat has been removed resulting in loose or sagging skin.
AquaShape liposuction is also more gentle to the surrounding cells, blood vessels, soft tissues and muscles in the treatment area, causing less discomfort, swelling and bruising. This technique is also safer because it requires about 70% less anesthetic solution than other techniques.
The costs associated with Aquashape are slightly higher than traditional liposuction costs, but cost will depend on the areas treated and how much fat is removed.
Is AquaShape right for you?
If you are following a weight-loss or fitness plan, or have recently lost weight but have stubborn spots of fat that won’t budge, AquaShape may be right for you. Keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss treatment and candidates should only be between slightly to moderately overweight. The best candidates For AquaShape are like those of traditional liposuction–a stable weight (no yo-yo dieting), less than 30 pounds over ideal weight, no long-term or chronic diseases and general good health.
The most common side effects are pain, redness, and swelling in the treatment areas. It usually takes people half the time of traditional liposuction methods to recover from the procedure and you will most likely experience some soreness. Most patients can begin walking or other light aerobic activity the day following the procedure, which will help reduce inflammation and decrease overall soreness. Most patients should wait about two weeks before attempting intense exercise.
The most important factor is using a trained and professional provider with an excellent safety record. Providers at Blue Halo are both technically and aesthetically trained.
