Our doctors have redefined liposuction in Orlando thanks to innovative Aqualipo® technology! Most people have seen videos of old-fashioned liposuction techniques. The aggressive, violent movement of the cannula as it attacks body fat. The high-powered suction to purge the fat. The patients taking off work for weeks with swollen, bruised, and sore bodies. But now, with the advent of Aqualipo® Orlando liposuction, patients are getting excellent results, with less discomfort and vastly smoother recoveries.
By using an innovative liposuction technique, Aqualipo® is better able to meet patient needs in every area as compared to traditional liposuction. Aqualipo® is minimally invasive, with no need for general anesthesia and less risk of complications. Aqualipo® promotes sculpted, long-lasting results, while minimizing bleeding, bruising, and swelling. Aqualipo® patients don’t have to endure weeks of downtime. In fact, most patients can continue their regular activities immediately following their procedure.

Liposuction techniques of the past relied on aggressive fat removal and general anesthesia. The cannula was inserted beneath your skin and vigorously moved back and forth to break up unwanted fat. High-powered suction then extracted this fat from your body. While this method was effective, it left behind unnecessary damage. Patients used to expect substantial bleeding, bruising, and swelling around the treatment area(s). Weeks of downtime were not uncommon.
Thanks to Aqualipo® technology, you do not need to worry about an invasive liposuction procedure or lengthy recovery! Aqualipo® delivers highly-concentrated pulses of water to the target area(s). A tiny incision is made in the skin and the Aqualipo® cannula is inserted below the skin. Water from the cannula gently loosens unwanted fat cells from surrounding tissues, making these fat cells easier to extract via liposuction. The result is less bleeding, bruising, and swelling.
Yes! Aqualipo® better preserves your fat cells, as well as nearby tissues, resulting in less recovery time. Since Aqualipo® is minimally invasive, patients do not need nearly as much time to recover from liposuction. Many Aqualipo® patients resume their daily activities within the same day as their treatment!
Aqualipo® can remove excess fat from most areas of the body. Some of the more common treatment areas include the chin, neck, arms, chest, back, midsection, thighs, and buttocks. Depending on your surgery goals, you may be a candidate for combination liposuction to treat multiple areas in one procedure. Our liposuction doctors would be happy to meet with you to determine if Aqualipo® is right for you during a consultation at our Florida offices.
Aqualipo® is a minimally invasive fat removal technique. This differs from traditional body contouring surgeries that focus primarily on removing and repositioning loose or excess skin. During body sculpting surgery, sagging skin is lifted, reshaped, and excised to restore firmness to your figure. Procedures like tummy tucks, thigh lifts, and back lifts can require numerous incisions and result in lengthy downtimes for patients.
Instead, Aqualipo® focuses on removing unwanted fat cells and sculpting more pronounced curves with little-to-no downtime. In certain cases, patients may be candidates for combination body sculpting surgery with liposuction. Our plastic surgeons will meet with you to further explain your options and answer any questions you may have regarding your liposuction procedure.
