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.
BETTER RESULTS WITH LESS DOWNTIME
AquaShape Water-Assisted Liposuction
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.
For men, the most frequently treated body areas are belly, flanks, breasts (in cases of gynecomastia) and chin/neck.
Liposuction is among the top options to remove fat from body areas where fat is usually accumulated.
For women, the most frequent treatments take place at hips, thighs, arms, buttocks and breasts.
What Makes it Different?
Water-assisted liposuction uses a high-pressure spray of anesthetic solution to gently detach fat cells from the tissue leaving fat cells largely intact.
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.
