How is the procedure performed?

After numbing the treatment area with a local anaesthetic, a small incision is made and more anaesthetic is inserted this allows micro droplets of fatty tissue released by water, not fragmented or liquefied by physical power of the cannula. This anaesthetic is used again to dislodge the fat cells which is then suctioned out at the same time in a jar. The incision is then closed with a steristrip and one is ready to go. 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.

What is the recovery like?

After your Aqualipo procedure, you may have some slight swelling, bruising and discomfort that will resolve within a day or two. Any minor pain can be treated with over-the-counter pain medication. You can expect to resume your normal routine within 1 to 2 days.

When will I begin to see results?

Although the initial results of your Aqualipo treatment will be evident immediately after your procedure, those results will become more apparent during the following 6 to 8 weeks once your body has had time to adjust to your new contours.

How many sessions are needed?

Most patients require only one Aqualipo treatment to achieve the results they’re looking for.

When can I return to work after Aqualipo?

In most cases, you can expect to return to your regular work routine within a day or two of your Aqualipo treatment.
