The advanced technique of water-assisted liposuction works to remove undesirable fat with minimal bruising and trauma. It is a much gentler technique than other liposuction treatments.

The Procedure

The water-assisted liposuction technique usually takes anywhere between one and three hours to be completed. The time taken is a lot less than with traditional liposuction. This is because it does not involve a long infiltration phase. Rather than eliminating fat cells with the help of a cannula or utilizing laser technology for melting and dislodging fat, this technique makes use of a gently pressurized saline stream for dislodging fat and removing cells.

In the water-assisted liposuction technique, fat cells aren’t destroyed. The procedure instead loosens these cells, facilitating a gentler and more accurate removal.

For those who are struggling with stubborn fat that refuses to go away despite exercise and diet, water-assisted liposuction can help in removing that undesirable fat. In particular, this technique (also called Aqualipo) can help eliminate love handles, tummy flab, double chins, saddle bags, bra bulges, and excessive fat visible in the thighs, arms, knees, and neck.

Benefits of Water-Assisted Liposuction

The first and most obvious advantage of this technique is that it causes very minimal trauma or nerve damage when compared to the other fat-removal techniques. This is primarily because the fluid jet system used in the procedure can eliminate fat in a more careful manner.

It is possible to perform the water-assisted liposuction procedure in a shorter period of time than traditional liposuction. This technique usually does not require the administration of general anesthesia and/or tumescent injections, making it so the total surgery time is automatically reduced. Local anesthesia is usually sufficient for performing water-assisted liposuction. If the patient requires it, general anesthesia may be given.

Because the technique is so gentle, the fat removed by using the water-assisted liposuction method can be saved and utilized for plumping up various parts of your body such as the face, breasts, and aging hands. These are areas that tend to lose volume as you age.

The Results of Water-Assisted Liposuction

After undergoing the water-assisted liposuction procedure, patients notice improved contours in the treated areas. The time it takes to see these results may vary from case to case. You can ask your plastic surgeon about how long it will be before you see your final results. In general, as your body keeps healing, you will keep noticing visible improvements in the appearance of your body.

The majority of patients are able to get the water-assisted liposuction procedure done within an hour. The procedure also usually involves very little or no downtime. In fact, you might be fit to resume your daily activities almost immediately after the procedure.
