Aqua Lipo uses the Body Jet developed by Human Med AG in Germany. It offers many unique aspects and features that can result in a more gratifying result.
A preoperative tumescent anesthesia is used. The technique involves the use of a saline solution with an anesthetic and a pH balancer placed under the skin and above the muscles which helps control pain and bleeding well.
The treatment is given through thin rods which have the property of injecting a fan-shaped jet of fluid into the subcutaneous tissues. This jet dislodges adipocytes (fat cells) which are then suctioned out and stored in a collection cylinder. Different amounts of pressure or suction can be used during the procedure. Fat can then be stored temporarily until needed for fat transfer procedures or can be discarded.
Afterwards, pressure dressings are used to express any remaining fluid out of the subcutaneous regions. Remarkable results can be seen by the next day. See photos.
Aqua Lipo can be combined with other laser assisted liposuction techniques for added improvement. The endpoints are marvelous. The recovery period is short and augmenting techniques can be complementary.
Water-jet assisted liposuction is a new liposuction technique and the first of its kind in the United States. Using the body-jet device, this revolutionary alternative to traditional liposuction is gentle, fast, and effective. Using the flow of water to dislodge fat, this technique is unlike any other. This procedure uses a gentle, pulsating spray of fluids, water-jet assisted liposuction dislodges fat without the brute force used with traditional liposuction. This gentle method results in minimal bruising and tissue trauma, while still achieving excellent results.
Almost any area of the body with excessive fat deposits may be treated. The most frequent areas are the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, arms, and beneath the chin.
Body-Jet liposuction sculpts your shape with minimal downtime, discomfort, and bruising. Often this procedure may be performed under local anesthesia and most patients are back to work and resume normal activity in just days.
In addition to liposuction, the Body-Jet also has the capabilities for fat-transfer. Fat transfer is a technique when by a person’s own fat can be harvested from one or more areas of the body. This fat can be injected into other areas for aesthetic corrections.
Commonly, fat can be used as a filler for the face and hands. In certain situations breast and buttock augmentation can also be done.
