Water-Assisted (Bodyjet) Liposuction

Water-assisted liposuction (WAL) is an innovative new technology that uses the power of water to dislodge and remove fat cells from the body. Removal of the fat cells is permanent, resulting in an improved contour. Water-assisted liposuction is far more gentle than the traditional liposuction techniques, as there is minimal trauma to the tissue supporting the fat, such as blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue septae. As there is less trauma to supporting tissue, patients can benefit from less bruising, swelling and quicker recovery.

One of the great features of WAL is that the jet of water contains local anaesthetic. This allows a treated area to be made numb and fat removed simultaneously. The treated area does not require infiltration with a large volume of anaesthetic solution as in tumescent liposuction. This means there is less swelling and Mr Karri accurately contour an area.

Another benefit of WAL is the gentle manner in which the fat is removed. The harvested fat is less traumatised and therefore ideally suited for fat grafting.
