Water Assisted Liposuction and Its Superiority for Fat Transfer

Are you interested in either liposuction or fat transfer procedures? You will be interested to know that water assisted liposuction is one of the best procedures available, especially if you are also considering fat transfer augmentation.

What is Water Assisted Liposuction?

As with other methods of liposuction or body sculpting, water assisted lipo will remove deposits of fat that are found beneath the skin. The results are a smoother figure. While similar to other lipo procedures, there are some differences with water assisted liposuction. Instead of using a tumescent fluid to dislodge the fat cells that are then removed via a small cannula, water assisted lipo uses pressurized streams of saline. The fat cells are then gently removed, along with any remaining fluid. This type of procedure does not destroy the fat cells; rather, it allows the fat cells to be removed with a gentler, less destructive technique.

Why is Water Assisted Liposuction More Effective for Fat Transfer?

Because the fat cells are not destroyed during the procedure, water assisted lipo is very effective for patients who also want fat transfer procedures. After the fat is removed, the cells are then separated and processed through a centrifugal process. These fat cells are then placed into the area the patient wants augmented, usually the buttocks or the breasts.

This fat transfer augmentation provides several benefits over other procedures such as implants. There is no risk of an allergic reaction as the patient’s own cells are used. Additionally, the results are far more natural looking and feeling. Also, the water assisted liposuction procedure is gentler and will result in less bruising, swelling or other such effects.
