A variation on traditional liposuction, this is a water jet assisted procedure that washes away the fat without damaging blood vessels and nerves. The machine pumps highly-pressured fluid into the unwanted fat using a hollow metal tube called a cannula.
The pressure of the fluid breaks up the fat so more can be sucked out than with normal liposuction.
The fluid pumped into the fat contains adrenaline which causes the blood vessels to shrink so less blood is lost.
One treatment is necessary and results are permanent. The machine pumps highly-pressured fluid into the unwanted fat using a hollow metal tube called a cannula.
It is a minimally invasive treatment using local anaesthetic and involves little recovery time. A day’s rest is advised and bruising can take one or two weeks to disappear.
