Water jet assisted liposuction is one of the method of liposuction which is used by cosmetic surgeons. Like other liposuction technology, fatty deposits are removed from underneath the skin for more contoured look.
Instead of injecting tumescent fluid in the body and removing the fat cells manually with a cannula or using laser technology to liquefy and remove the fat, Water jet assisted liposuction uses a slightly pressurized stream of saline to remove the fat and at the same time remove the cells. Instead of destroying fat cells, this type of liposuction loosens fat cells to make easy more gentle removal. In Water Jet Assisted Liposuction tumescent fluid (saline and medicines including a local anesthetic) injected into to the body part being treated. Tumescent fluid is proven effective and so several alternate liposuction technologies are now using the tumescent technique for its local anesthetic benefits. Water Jet Assisted Liposuction then uses different processes to actually remove the fat and manage fluid levels.
Once the body anesthetized, then a cannula inserted into the tissue to irrigate and then simultaneously suction the loosen fat cell from the body. Lastly any remaining fluid is removed. The procedure is considered gentle and minimally invasive and the force seen in traditional liposuction methods is not required in Water Jet Assisted Liposuction.
Water Jet Assisted Liposuction Procedure
In Water Jet Assisted Liposuction treatment first local anesthesia is delivered in to body to anesthetized targeted tissue. Then small incision is made to insert the cannula into the tissue to perform the liposuction.
The specialized device used to perform Water Assisted Liposuction uses cannula with openings near the tip on the both side and top. The top opening is used to deliver pressurized saline water in a 360 degree fan, which destroys the fat without damaging nerves and blood vessels. During procedure water is continually added to loosen additional areas of excess fat, not like traditional tumescent liposuction, in which large volume of liquid is injected earlier to the fat removal process. This fluid usually contains lidocaine a local anesthesia so that the tissue remains numb throughout the duration of the procedure.
The holes in the sides of the cannula are used to suction out both the loosened fat and the water. The surgeon moves the cannula beneath of the skin to target accurate areas of excess fat. Once all the targeted fat removed then the cannula is removed from the fat layer. The incision generally not requires sutures.
This is another liposuction technology which does not need general anesthesia which reduces cost of the treatment and risks to patient. There is less bruising and bleeding cause in Water Jet Assisted Liposuction. Because of the fluid management used in this technique, the surgeon can do more detailed anatomical estimation while performing the procedure. In this treatment the area of the body which being treated isn’t swell up so the surgeon can see the results of the liposuction.
Advantages of Water Jet Assisted Liposuction
Currently Body- Jet Liposuction by Eclipse is famous technologies in use which is launched into the market in 2009. Water Jet Assisted Liposuction is become popular in very short time because of the effectiveness and the quick healing time. These new technology has a reputation for offers gentler and more accurate approach and faster recovery time. Water assisted Liposuction patients may experience less bruising and discomfort than the traditional liposuction.
In this technique the fat is removed gently rather than scraped away, as with other liposuction techniques. The contours created are exceptionally smooth. This technique is ideal for the treatment of fibrous areas of fat like those located on the thighs, back and buttocks. It is less useful to treating smaller areas of the body like face. This gentle removal of the fat preserves it in a healthy state so it making possible to re-implant it in fat transfer procedure. The fat can be used to augment the breasts, buttocks or other areas of the body without using artificial implants.
