Dr. Selem is pleased to introduce AQUALIPO®, a revolutionary new liposuction procedure designed to remove unwanted fat deposits from areas of the body that are traditionally resistant to diet and exercise. AQUALIPO® offers patients better results with less bruising, swelling, and contour abnormalities than traditional liposuction procedures. What’s more, AQUALIPO® has virtually no downtime.
Unlike traditional liposuction procedures, AQUALIPO® is minimally invasive, performed as an outpatient procedure, and typically requires only local anesthesia. The gentle nature of the fat removal technique requires no stitches and drastically reduces the potential for scarring, bleeding, and bruising after the procedure.
Technological advances have allowed for the development of newer, less traumatic ways to perform liposuction procedures. Traditional liposuction procedures relied on the aggressive movement of the cannula to remove excess fat deposits. AQUALIPO® uses the Body-Jet®, a concentrated water jet that gently flushes fat from the body. Using the Body-Jet® technology, fat cells can be removed without aggressive force, drastically reducing the risk of trauma to nerves, blood vessels, skin, muscle, and septal attachments.
In addition to providing patients with a safe and gentle alternative to old-fashioned liposuction techniques, the Body-Jet® offers many exciting possibilities for fat transfer. Since the Body-Jet® requires less infiltration fluid than traditional liposuction, the fat cells are still intact when they are removed. Dr. Selem then has the ability to use these viable fat cells as natural fillers to help smooth lines and wrinkles on your face and hands.
Patients considering this procedure should be in good overall health, close to normal body weight, and have realistic expectations for results. AQUALIPO® typically takes between 30 to 45 minutes for each body part treated. Patients are generally discharged 15 minutes after the procedure is completed and are able to drive themselves home.
Dr. Joseph Selem and the staff at The Selem Center for Ophthalmology & Plastic Surgery would be happy to help you set up a private consultation to discuss liposuction. Schedule an appointment online or call us at 305-444-0221.
