AquaLipo is a new technology that uses high powered microjets of water, sprayed in a fan-like fashion to break the fat layer.
It uses the force of water to blast the fat cells while minimizing injury to vessels and nerves during the process. The water is immediately suctioned back with the fat, so less swelling is observed. In the absence of excess fluid, it is very easy to assess if any areas need additional liposuction before the end of surgery. Because this procedure does not entail the infusion of the area with solution, the recovery period for patients is dramatically reduced, with minimal bleeding during the procedure.
Advantages of Water-Assisted Liposuction (WAL):
WAL is a relatively painless surgery that does not entail heavy sedation or general anesthesia. There is minimal intra-operative swelling that allows precise body contouring which helps reduce the risk of irregular skin surface after a liposuction. Post-operative pain, swelling and bruising are minimal and patient may go back to regular activities soon after.
