Even a well-trained body of normal weight can have its problem zones. Extra weight carried in such areas rarely responds to diet and exercise. Hereditary factors and hormones determine how fat cells are distributed in our bodies.
Liposuction permanently removes fat cells in order to give the body a more aesthetically pleasing shape.
Body-jet liposuction, also called water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) is an innovative, gentle method for the surgical reduction of persistent fat stores.
In this method irrigation solution is introduced into the fatty tissue with a pulsating spray action using a special cannula. This solution is then immediately suctioned off – together with the loosened fat cells. The gentle water-jet loosens the fat and makes it possible to remove fat cells permanently while sparing subcutaneous tissues.
Compared with conventional liposuction methods WAL removes fat with much less force and a significantly lower risk of side effects. With other methods the irrigation solution must remain in the body for a certain period of time in order to take effect. The waiting period is minimized with water-jet assisted liposuction, significantly reducing overall treatment time. With the water-jet method there is no risk of thermal injury (e.g. burns) and a much lower risk of bruise formation and injury to the sensitive nerve tissues under the skin. The strands of connective tissue responsible for skin tightening remain largely intact beneath the skin, like exposed tree roots.
For you this means excellent chances of being partially pain-free within just a few days of treatment.
The liposuction methods used to date require that subcutaneous adipose tissue be infused with a large volume of anaesthetic solution in preparation for the treatment. In this process the natural contours are lost, the body appears inflated and, for orientation during the liposuction procedure, the surgeon must rely on lines drawn on skin prior to the treatment. This is not the case with WAL: In this treatment local anaesthesia is continually applied to the exact site of treatment throughout the procedure along with the irrigation solution. As a result the patient experiences significantly less swelling in the treatment area, making it much easier for the surgeon to assess treatment results during the process. This contributes significantly to surgical accuracy and precision of the outcome.
Even a gentle surgical procedure has associated risks. If you are interested in learning more about gentle body-contouring with the innovative WAL procedure, contact us and ask about the benefits and risks of such a treatment.
