Body Water-jet Liposuction, Overview

The Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or Water-jet lipo is an effective and gentle method of liposuction. The Water-jet lipo is an innovative liposuction method in which the irrigating water solution is introduced into the fatty tissue with a pulsating spray action. The solution is then immediately suctioned out of the body, together with the loosened fat cells. Therefore, the gentle water-jet lipo loosens the fat cells allowing the suction action to aspirate the fat out of the body permanently while sparing other tissues such as nerves and vessels. Doctor Makeover uses Body water-jet gentle fat harvesting properties to transfer fat cells to other parts of the body such as face, breasts and buttocks .

  • Water-jet lipo has a high rate of patient satisfaction lower revision rate.
  • Water-jet lipo has significantly shorter operation times.
  • The Body Water-jet liposuction is safe.
  • Water-jet liposuction prices start from 1800 Pounds.

 

  • What are the reasons for having liposuction?

    As we know, even a well-trained body of normal weight, can have its local fat deposits and problem areas which need smoothing and contouring. This excess fat and probably extra weight carried in such areas rarely responds to diet and exercise. It is well-known that hereditary factors and hormones determine how fat cells are distributed in our bodies which are the bases of the difference in the overall shape of the body in males and females. Awareness of the normal body contour helps us to remove excessive fat and influence and manipulate the body shape. For example, at Doctors Makeover we use Body Water-jet Lipo to collect and harvest healthy fat cells from your own body and then transfer them to other parts of your body such as face, buttocks and breasts, in order to restore your youthful look. Therefore, the Body Water-jet not only permanently remove excessive fat calls from your body by liposuction it also gives the body a more natural and anatomically pleasing shape. We also use other methods of liposuction such as Vaser lipo and Smartlipo.

  • Can you briefly outline the benefits of Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo or Water-jet liposuction?

    The Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet or Water-jet lipo are the terms used for the same minimally invasive liposuction device that provides a gentle way of liposuction with a number of clear advantages over the other methods of liposuction:
    Water-jet lipo gives better results in body contouring.
    During the Water-jet lipo procedure there is almost no tumescent swelling or bloating.
    Water-jet lipo is better for intra-operative assessment and precise contouring.
    Water-jet lipo has a high rate of patient satisfaction and a lower revision rate.
    The Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction is faster because:
    Water-jet lipo has significantly shorter operation times.
    Water-jet lipo does not require waiting time between infiltration and aspiration.
    Water-jet lipo is an effortless because of the use of the body-jet cannulae.
    The Water-jet lipo assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction is safer because:
    Water-jet lipo has up to 70% less tumescent solution in pre-infiltration. Water-jet lipo has less accumulation of medications in the body.
    Water-jet lipo can give adequate infiltration as required during the whole process. The Water-jet lipo assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction significantly shortens the surgery time and the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction has been described as a gentle, safe and targeted method to remove fat deposits from the body. Therefore, the method is simply and easily explained to the patients and quickly learned and performed by the surgeons. Worldwide, liposuction has steadily been gaining popularity but some authorities point out that the risk of the use of local anaesthetics and other drugs (tumescent technique) has been neglected. During the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction no additional drugs are required apart from the prepared solution. Therefore, it has been claimed that drug-related side-effects are less compared with other methods of liposuction and should not to be expected. It is also known that the tumescent method when large amounts of fluid is infiltrated in the area, may not allow the surgeon to carry out a precise correction of the margins because the area that is being worked on loses its original shape owing to the tumescent solution injection. However, in the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction because of the simultaneous suction of the tumescent solution the surgeon can easily determine the magnitude of the fatty tissue that is to be removed at any time of the procedure. The leakage of fluid from the incision with tumescent method is significantly reduced after the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction. It is also estimated that the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction reduces the operating time by more than 40% because the time between infiltration of the tumescent solution and the period until it takes effect with the tumescent technique does not apply for the Water-jet liposuction technique. Therefore, a large part of the saving in time rises from the fact that immediately after inserting the cannula and starting the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction to the point when the surgeon starts to suction the fatty tissues. In fact, the removal of fat tissue and the moulding of the surrounding area can start right from the beginning of the procedure and unlike other methods only little fluid remains in the tissue and that is why some patients describe Water-jet liposuction as being very pleasant. Water-jet is a safer, faster and more predictable technique and it has been claimed that the Water-jet is poised to blow outdated liposuction methods out of the water.

  • Why use the gentle power of Body Water-jet to reduce body fat cells?

    Water-jet lipo or the Body Water-jet liposuction is a gentle and effective method for the reduction of persistent fat stores in the body. Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet is an innovative method of an irrigating solution introduced into the fatty tissue with a pulsating spray action using a special device about 2mm in diameter. This solution is then immediately suctioned out of the body- together with the loosened fat cells. Therefore, the gentle water-jet lipo loosens the fat cells allowing the suction action to aspirate the fat out of the body permanently while sparing subcutaneous tissues such as nerves and vessels.

  • How long has Body Water-jet been used?

    The aim of the Water-jet lipo or the Body Water-jet liposuction is to improve the result, safety and a speedy recovery of the patients after the Body Water-jet liposuction surgery. The Water-jet lipo or the Body Water-jet liposuction has been in use since 2004 and has become a popular liposuction technique in many countries. It has been already approved by the FDA (Food & Drug Administration) in the USA and is gaining popularity in that country. The Water-jet lipo or the Water-jet liposuction gently removes fat cells from areas like the stomach, thighs, hips or lower back, and other parts of the body, then we can transfer the aspirated fat to any part of the body (autologous fat transfer) to areas such as face, breast and buttock, if indicated.

  • Can you tell me more about the action of Body Water-jet lipo and brief complications?

    The jet action of the water-jet liposuction has been compared with a powerful shower head. Therefore, in water-jet liposuction a jet of water is infiltrated under controlled pressure into the fatty tissue to transform them into gelatinous materials, which can be aspirated (suctioned) out of the body which is less stressful to the patient compared with other methods of liposuction. It is possible to remove a large amount of fat with safety during one session of operation. It is known that there is less bruising, swelling and pain after the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction because there is less damage to the tissue, including nerves and vessels. It is thought that the action of the Water-jet lipo or the Body Water-jet liposuction in displacing the fat cells could be compared in the same way as the action of a jet of water when it targets the soil compact in a pot and dislodges and washes the soil.

  • What is the Water-jet lipo or the Body Water-jet liposuction?

    The Water-jet lipo or the Body Water-jet liposuction is the next level in the body liposculpturing techniques. In the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo a slightly pressurised fan-shaped and laminator jet of water splashes and sprays over tissues to release undesired fat cells from its connective tissues while more fibrous structures such as nerves and vessels are spared.

  • What is the main principle behind the technology of the Water-jet liposuction or the Body Water-jet lipo?

    It is thought that the excess fats in our body are like a bunch of grapes on a vine tree and with the water-jet action, the grapes are displaced and then they fall down and they are simultaneously being removed from the body by the aspiration/suction action of the same equipment - the Water-jet liposuction or the Body Water-jet lipo.

  • Is it true that the Body Water-jet risks are minimal compared with the other methods of liposuction?

    Yes, compared with conventional liposuction methods Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction removes fat with much less force and a significantly lower risk of side-effects. Even in comparison to other available minimally invasive methods of liposuction such as ultrasound based technology (Vaser) and laser technology (Smartlipo) where the tumescent or irrigation solution (containing local anaesthetic and other medications) must remain in the body for a certain period of time in order to take effect, in Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet the period of waiting time in the body is minimal. Therefore, Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction is significantly reducing the side-effects from the medications in the tumescent solution and overall treatment time. Furthermore, with the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet method of liposuction there is no risk of thermal injury (e.g. burns which might occur with Vaser or laser based technologies such as Smartlipo) and a much lower risk of bruise formation and injury to the sensitive nerve tissues under the skin. In addition, in Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction the strands of connective tissues responsible for skin tightening remain largely intact beneath the skin. Therefore, skin tightening takes place. In this regard, Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet can be compared with relatively exposed tree roots which can maintain the stability and integrity of the tree until the skin tightening takes effect. The use of Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction for you means apart from skin tightening and good results you also experience excellent chances of being practically pain-free within just a few days of the treatment.

  • Does the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction procedure produce better results?

    In the other methods of minimally invasive liposuction such as Vaser and Smartlipo, they require the subcutaneous adipose tissue area to be infused with a large volume of tumescent solution containing anaesthetic solution in preparation for the treatment. Therefore, the natural contours of the area to be treated are lost, the body appears inflated and for the surgeon the orientation of the shape of the area will be distorted during the liposuction procedure. During such procedures, the surgeon must rely on lines drawn on the skin prior to the treatment. This is not the case with Water jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction. In Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction treatment, local anaesthetic 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 procedure. This unique property of the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction contributes significantly to better surgical accuracy and precision during the operation, improves the outcome and gives better results after treatment with the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water- jet liposuction treatment. In fact, Water-jet and other minimally invasive liposuction methods are well known to have significantly less side-effects in comparison to traditional liposuction and other power assisted liposuction methods when the fat deposits along with other supporting tissues are aspirated forcefully out of the body by a relatively high powered vacuum pump. Power assisted liposuction are usually done under general anaesthesia which has its own complications and there is also significant pain, swelling and bruising with long term irregularities after such relatively invasive and aggressive methods.

  • How can the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo be compared with traditional liposuction, laser liposuction (Smart Lipo) and Vaser Liposuction?

    It is thought that The Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo has several advantages over other methods of liposuction.

    Firstly, it seems that the use of water-jet is safer than other methods because traditional liposuction or power assisted liposuction (PAL) usually carries out under general anaesthesia (GA) which is well-known for its potential life-threatening, but rare, complications. Even other methods of liposuction so called "minimally invasive liposuction or fat reducing techniques" such as ultrasound based technology (e.g. Vaser) and laser based techniques - laser lipo (e.g. Smartlipo) are carried out under local anaesthesia but the tumescent solution must be left for some time after injection into the area of the body to be treated by the Vaser or Smartlipo. Therefore, there is a chance of increased absorption of the local anaesthetics and other medications in the tumescent solution by the body and potential risk of upsetting the body's vital organs.

    In conclusion, although minimally invasive liposuction methods such as laser (Smart Lipo) and ultrasound (Vaser) liposuctions are safe procedures as they are commonly being carried out under local anaesthesia. The amount of local anaesthetic absorbed by the body during the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is thought to be much less and the Body Water-jet lipo is considered to be much safer than the other methods. Therefore, the total amount of local anaesthetic drugs which are used in the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is less and therefore one can conclude that the overall safety profile of the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is higher than the other liposuction methods.

    Secondly, the results of the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is also thought to be better than the other methods of liposuction because the surgeon can work better as the amount of tumescent solution is not large enough to grossly disturb the texture and integrity of the tissues.

    Thirdly, the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is known to be less painful than other methods. I (Mr Taghipour) have personally visited clinics in the US where they have already replaced traditional liposuction, laser liposuction (Smart Lipo) and ultrasound liposuction (Vaser Liposuction) with the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo. The surgeon was arguing clearly in favour of the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo in terms of better results and safety profile because he was able to give less local anaesthetic compared with the other methods. He also added that the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is more suitable to their clients as it is less painful and they could also re-use and graft the fat to other parts of their patients' body such as face, breast and buttock. He uses the Water- jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo on a regular basis in their clinics at the time.

    Fourthly, one of the positive and almost unique properties of the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is its ability to wash and separate the fat cells and collect them in the Water-jet Fat Collector System. The purified fat cells then can be immediately transferred to face, breast, buttock or any part of the body of the same person with high degrees of reliability and good long-term results.

    Fifthly, almost all medical equipment are "operator dependent", which means the outcome of any treatment is heavily dependent on the skill of the surgeon. Therefore, the use of the surgical equipment in liposuction, such as laser lipo (Smart Lipo), ultrasound liposuction (Vaser) and the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo are no exception from this rule. However, it is thought that the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo equipment is more flexible and, in good skilled hands, could produce very good results with minimum pain and discomfort to the patient. The skills and experience of the surgeon is vital in the outcome of the results of the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo.

    Sixthly, it is also thought the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is less traumatic to the patient because there is less tissue trauma, haemorrhages (bleeding), haematomas and bruising. In Water jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo there is no risk of burning during and after the operation. Therefore, the down time and recovery period from the operation is minimal with the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo. The recovery and return to normal activities after the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is faster compared with the other methods of liposuction and minimally invasive liposuction technologies such as laser lipo (Smartlipo) and Vaser liposuction.

    Seventhly, the benefits of the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo can be summarised in: a better safety profile as there is less dosage of drugs being used during the operation. There is less tissue trauma and therefore there is less pain during and after the operation with a speedy recovery from the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo procedure. The Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is an effective in precise real time contouring which means the surgeon and you, as a client, can see what you are finally going to get at. Therefore, the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo has the convenience of being both physically and emotionally less stressful to the patient and to the surgeon with shorter procedural and recovery time. Therefore, you can "walk in/walk out of the clinic".

  • Can the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction be used for other conditions apart from liposuction?

    The Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo with its fan-shaped water-jet is being used for a number of cosmetic conditions. For example, the removal of sweat glands and the mobilisation of facial skin during face lifts has been shown to be greatly improved safely and effectively during these procedures by using water-jet assisted liposuction or the Body water-jet lipo. During facelifts, when separating tissues with the help of a diffused stream of water, the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo tends to remain within the desired tissue layer. The Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet separates tissues at the appropriate site from the surrounding structures, especially blood vessels supplying the skin remain intact, while underlying vessels and bands of tissue are clearly exposed for subsequent steps of the procedure.

  • What are the benefits of the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet liposuction over traditional methods of liposuction and is there any evidence for support of your claim?

    These benefits of the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo are always based on the advantages offered by water as a more indulgent and physiological approach to separating tissues. The Water-jet from the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo does not cut but it pushes apart sheets of cells at their weakest point. This action of the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo allows the operator to separate various types of tissues or ‘cut’ along lines of differing tissue densities. The operator is able to identify the anatomical plain by using the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet and follow the existing anatomical structures. In the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water jet lipo the fan shaped water-jet has another advantageous effect. The Body Water-jet infiltrates the surrounding fatty tissue, transforming it into a gelatinous state. This tissue can then be suctioned off more effectively and in a manner that is less stressful for the patient than conventional procedures. Significant reduction of pain and ecchymosis after the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo compared to traditional liposuction (Araco, A., Gravante, G. et al. in. Assth. Plast. Surg. 31:259-265, 2007). There was no significant differences existing between the two groups except for the operating time which was longer for the traditional liposuction group than for the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet group in the same study. Bruising was also rated lower for the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo during the first five days after the operation and in both techniques showed dramatic bruising reduction on 5th post-operative day. The study concluded that the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo was less traumatic for tissues such as nerves and blood vessels in comparison with traditional liposuction. In the Water- jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet with a fine jet of water that follows anatomic structures without damaging them whose pressure can be adapted to different connective tissue structures. It is possible to selectively remove fat cells by using the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo while sparing blood vessels and nerves. The study concluded that the Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or the Body Water-jet lipo is an almost painless procedure compared with other tumescent liposuction.
