What is Aqualipo® liposuction?

Aqualipo® liposuction is an innovative new liposuction technique performed by NuBody Concepts liposuction surgeons that uses the power of water to gently flush unwanted fat away. Aqualipo® liposuction provides patients with excellent liposuction results with less bruising, swelling, and downtime than traditional liposuction procedures and techniques.

How does Aqualipo® liposuction work?

Aqualipo® liposuction relies on the power of highly concentrated water to gently dislodge and remove fat cells from the body. Using water-jet technology, fat can be removed from the body with significantly less force than older liposuction techniques. The power of the water-jet detaches fat cells from their surrounding tissues, allowing the suction cannula to move freely. This limits the possibility of trauma to surrounding tissues, including skin, muscles, nerves, blood vessels,and septal attachments.


What can I expect during the Aqualipo® liposuction procedure?

Because the process is so gentle, Aqualipo® liposuction is typically performed as an out-patient procedure under local anesthesia in our Nashville or Memphis facilities. On average, the entire procedure takes between 30 to 45 minutes for each part of the body that is treated. The majority of Aqualipo® liposuction patients find that they can return to their regular activities immediately following the procedure. In fact, Aqualipo® liposuction has been called “lunch break lipo” because most patients are able to have the procedure performed and immediately resume regular activities.

What are the benefits of Aqualipo® liposuction?

Aqualipo® liposuction provides patients with superior liposuction results when compared to traditional liposuction techniques. Other benefits of Aqualipo® liposuction include:
• Minimal downtime
• Low medical risk
• Can be performed under local anesthesia
• Less trauma to surrounding tissues
• Less bruising and swelling

How does Aqualipo® liposuction differ from other liposuction techniques?

Aqualipo® liposuction results in less bruising, scarring, swelling, bleeding, and downtime than traditional liposuction procedures. Not only does water-jet technology make Aqualipo® liposuction gentler and safer than old-fashioned liposuction techniques, but it also leads to more consistent results. In addition to the trauma it can cause to the body, the aggressive aspiration process used in traditional liposuction often leads to a “lumpy” appearance after surgery. With Aqualipo® liposuction in Nashville or Tennessee, patients experience smooth, long-lasting results with minimal discomfort and downtime.
