Answers to Your Questions about AquaLipo

Liposuction is a tried-and-true way to target unwanted pockets of fat that don’t respond to diet and exercise. However, liposuction is not right for every patient. The recovery from this plastic surgery can be lengthy and uncomfortable, and the procedure must be performed in the hospital under general anesthesia. A new option for people looking for liposuction results without the recovery time is AquaLipo. This effective approach to fat loss offers dramatic results with a minimum of downtime. If you’re considering AquaLipo in Los Angeles, here is what you need to know.

What Is AquaLipo?

Unlike traditional liposuction, which relies on suction to remove fat cells, AquaLipo uses water to flush fat out of the body. The procedure is much gentler than traditional liposuction and minimizes the impact on surrounding tissue. Much like liposuction, it can be used to treat any area of the body where you have unwanted fat, including the abdomen, hips, arms, and back.

What Are the Benefits?

There are several benefits to choosing AquaLipo over traditional liposuction. Because there is less stress on surrounding tissue, AquaLipo causes less bruising, swelling, and soreness after the procedure. The procedure can be performed under local anesthesia rather than the general anesthesia liposuction requires, so it is safer for patients. AquaLipo is sometimes referred to as “lunchtime lipo” because there is no downtime after the procedure, unlike traditional liposuction that involves a lengthy recovery period. The gentleness of AquaLipo also makes it ideal for people who want to use the removed fat cells for a fat grafting procedure.

Who Is a Good Candidate?

Because AquaLipo is for contouring, not weight loss, candidates should be close to their ideal weights at the time of treatment. Patients should also be in good overall health and have good skin elasticity so that sagging skin doesn’t develop in the treated areas.
