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
