Most people have seen video 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 laid-up for weeks with swollen, bruised and sore bodies. But now, with the advent of Aqualipo®, 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.
