A cannula with a computer-controlled, fan-shaped, thin jet of water causes the fat cells from the tissue layer (waterjet liposuction). Is gently softened tissue processed and removed the excess fat cells. The connective tissue, blood vessels and the nerves are usually largely undamaged.
Conventional liposuction has pumped up a large amount of saline solution with different active substances strongly feed the skin tissue under local anaesthetic. With the water-jet liposuction the strong swelling of the tissue is no longer necessary. Approximately 50-75% to the preparation of the intervention less solution are required.
Thus, the operation can be performed much more effectively because the tissue contours are immediate and more visible and the doctor may correspondingly better model. The final result is already clearly visible during the intake cycle. With the softened fatty tissue disappears also the liquid with the local anesthetic. Thus less load on medication for the patient. The solution itself is inserted into the tissue sterile. The risk of infection during use and the risk of complications of the active ingredients in the saline solution is as relatively low.
With the method, which can in the body brought a solution are well controlled as the surgeon at the same time can also flush to absorb. The amount of table salt mixture, which still remains after surgery in the body and emerges from the wounds, or is broken down by the body should be generally low.
Strands of tissue and nerve can remain intact. This assumes that the doctor acts accordingly carefully and the patient moves not jerky in the treatment. That reduces the risk for embolism, thrombosis, etc.
Advantages of liposuction with water
- Protect nerves and blood vessels
- Very low drug load compared to other fat-extraction methods
- Little saline and active ingredients
- Little complications such as bleeding, bruising and swelling
- Local anaesthesia possible
- Precise work of the surgeons possible
- Light support underwear
- Short recovery period after surgery
- Gentle movements
Duration of liposuction
The patient and the doctor see the outcome already during the liposuction, so it is uncommon to post corrections. A comprehensive treatment of the abdomen is completed in about 1.5 hours. As a patient, you can choose a local anaesthetic, acting several hours after the surgery. Better modeling of the areas for liposuction, you can even stand up as a patient and to model the surgeons leave.
Applications of waterjet treatment
- Fat loss up to 4 liters
- Liposuction hips
- Liposuction abdomen
- Liposuction Thighs
- Knee liposuction
- Mammary glands to adipose tissue
- Severely overweight
- Fat aprons
Cost of liposuction with water
Individual regions, such as the right thigh for 800-1200 euros. Combining areas there is often also a discount because creates synergies in the treatment. A comprehensive liposuction of abdomen and hips, 3000-5000 euros. Costs for a light compression bodice, wound and scar treatment may arise in addition.
Durability of water-jet liposuction
The fat cells are physically located. You keep slim as long as one lives according to the place. The treated skin area in any case first subject to no changes in weight by dieting or short-term feeding attacks. If you eat much but longer after surgery, then it can be that not quite regularly build up fat cells in the field or in the adjacent area and there will be slight contours to the body. But also that you could with a renewed intervention again correct or alternatively under splash with fat leave.
Fat cells and the water jet treatment
Is destroyed and the injuring of fat cells, neurotransmitters are released. They activate cells that are necessary for the removal of the damaged fat cells. The fat is released through this process, and absorbed by the body through the lymphatic system.
There are different variations of fatty tissue. White fat and brown adipose tissue. The brown adipose tissue consists of many fat droplets that mainly serve the heat generation, but are rather rare to find in the body. White fat cells can be found in many places of the connective tissue in the body. Distinction is made between two types of FAT: Depot fat in subcutaneous tissue to meet out for weeks without food. Grease for organs or specific areas of the body such as E.g. the ball of the foot to prevent heat loss or mechanical influence. Two-thirds of the fat lie in the subcutaneous tissue, the rest mainly in the abdomen.
The secret of fat cells
Fat cells build up in the normal case, if a persistent excess of energy (calories) in the body, so more energy is introduced, as is mined. Added new fat cells, it is difficult to rid them permanently again. The complete breakdown of fat cells stretches years depending on the age, muscles, metabolism, and living conditions. Genetically seen the also makes sense to bypass simpler times with food shortages.
Cut off one turns the body of food and energy balance, then empty the fat cells only, are available but still in full number. If you now again falls back after a few months training or diet in its old scheme the fat cells fill up again and some new ones. So, it comes to the notorious Yo-Yo effect, which brings more weight on the scales at the end as before the diet.

After the surgery:
- 4 weeks only light physical activity
- Abstain from cigarettes and alcohol for several weeks

- The following day the following week is better you again capable of work for light physical work
- Sleeping on the side of non-implanted
- Wound care
- Wound secretions and the saline solution from the treatment can emerge from the wounds
- The treated area should not dotted print be exposed, since that that otherwise affects healing and hence the contour.
