If you have trouble areas of stubborn fat that won’t go away no matter how much you diet and exercise, AquaShape® can help. AquaShape® by body-jet® is a minimally invasive liposuction procedure. The gentle method of water-assisted liposuction will give you superior body contouring results. Since there’s no need for general anesthesia, AquaShape® by body-jet® reduces medical risk, while minimizing patient downtime. And, since AquaShape® permanently removes fat cells in the treated areas, you can expect outstanding body contouring with long-lasting results.
During the AquaShape® procedure, your unwanted fatty areas will be gently flushed away. By gently removing the fat with the body-jet®, the AquaShape® procedure avoids the aggressive and traumatic actions of traditional and power assisted liposuction. This means significantly less bruising and swelling, with lower medical risk and virtually no downtime.
How does AquaShape® work?
Your AquaShape® physician uses the body-jet® liposuction device to gently flush the fat from your body. The fat is removed by a pulsating spray of water that dislodges and loosens your fat cells. The water and fat cells are simultaneously suctioned back out together. For most patients, the procedure can be done in the office in just 30 to 45 minutes.
Is AquaShape® different than traditional liposuction methods?
Yes! Unlike traditional liposuction methods requiring general anesthesia, the AquaShape® procedure requires only local anesthesia. This means less medical risk for patients. The AquaShape® procedure removes fat cells by gently flushing the fat from the body, so there’s significantly less bruising and swelling.
How long is the recovery period after AquaShape®?
Individual recovery depends on many factors; including how much fat is removed and what parts of the body are treated. In most cases, patient downtime is minimal, and many patients may return to normal activities the same day. You should discuss with your physician what to expect in your situation.
