What is AquaShape®?
AquaShape® is an advanced liposuction and fat transfer procedure that uses your own natural fat cells to replenish and restore your youthful beauty. Safe, simple and effective, AquaShape® offers long-lasting results with minimal patient downtime.
How is the fat harvested?
During the AquaShape® process, a gentle jet of water dislodges and removes excess fat from selected areas of your body. With AquaShape®, the fat is removed gently, not destroyed by energy or disrupted by force, as is typical with other liposuction and fat harvesting methods. This makes the AquaShape® procedure gentle on patients, while minimizing damage to the harvested fat cells. The harvested fat is then immediately re-injected into the face and hands.
How long does the AquaShape® treatment take?
While the length of the procedure will vary depending on how much fat is removed and what body areas are treated, in most cases, AquaShape® is a fast and easy outpatient procedure. Your doctor will discuss your specific procedure with you and answer any questions you may have.
Will I need general anesthesia?
General anesthesia is not necessary. The AquaShape® procedure is tailored for local anesthesia.
How long is recovery?
Individual recovery depends on many factors; including how much fat is removed and which body parts 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.
What kind of results can I expect?
Since AquaShape® uses your own natural fat for rejuvenation; you can expect natural-looking and long-lasting results.
How is AquaShape® different from dermal fillers and cosmetic injectables?
AquaShape® uses only your own natural fat cells for rejuvenation, not synthetic or foreign materials. Using your own natural fat minimizes the risk for infection and provides long-lasting, natural-looking results.
How is AquaShape® different from artificial implants?
With AquaShape® you are using your own natural fat to enhance your breasts and buttocks instead of artificial implants. AquaShape® fat injections can give breasts and buttocks a softer, smoother and more natural-looking appearance. Additionally, you’ll be able to take advantage of outstanding body contouring in the donor areas through the AquaShape® process.
