I am sure that you are all aware that the latest buzzword in aesthetics is liposuction
Basically there are 3 different types of liposuction
- Non invasive
- Minimally invasive
- InvasiveNon-invasive liposuction includes procedures like radio frequency, cavitation and oasis laser
These procedures are done on an outpatient basis. Can be done by a doctor or a beauty therapist. And pre procedure oral sedation is usually not required.
The invasive liposuction is what we know as a tummy tuck.
This procedure is most expensive from all three with visible scarring.
And finally we have minimally invasive procedures. This includes surgical laser liposuction and the latest technology is water assisted liposuction also known as aqualipo.
What is Aqualipo?
The innovative Body-Jet employs the gentle power of water-jet assisted lipoplasty. Unlike traditional liposuction methods, the Body-Jet uses a gentle jet of water to simultaneously dislodge and remove fat from the body, while sparing blood vessels, nerves and surrounding tissue.
Just as rivers and streams can reshape our natural environment, so can the power of water be harnessed to sculpt and shape the body. The Body-Jet gently separates fat cells from connective tissue, minimizing trauma to the patient. Unlike traditional methods, with the Body-Jet there’s no need to flood the body with high volumes of infiltration fluid before the procedure. Because
the Body-Jet uses simultaneous irrigation and aspiration, the doctor can control infiltration during the procedure, administering minimal amounts as needed. This helps to reduce overall exposure to tumescent fluid, minimize swelling, allowing real-time precise contouring, and dramatically shortens procedure time.
Aqualipo offers multiple advantages over traditional liposuction techniques, including:
Less trauma, Faster recovery time, Less discomfort, Less swelling and bruising after the procedure, Less blood loss, No need for general anesthesia, More refined, precise results, Encourages the development of new collagen, resulting in firmer skin.
Who is a candidate for Aqualipo?
Aqualipo is a great option for both men and women in good general health who have stubborn pockets of fat that do not respond to regular diet and exercise, and who are at or near their ideal weight.
The entire Aqualipo procedure takes from 30 minutes to one and a half hours for each area treated, and is performed on an outpatient basis.
