The water assisted liposuction technique (WAL) is widely thought to be the gentlest of all liposuction options, and it’s all thanks to its unique approach to fat removal. Water assisted liposuctions uses a pressure spray of tumescent fluid to help dislodge the fat from the connective tissue, rather than the force of a cannula and suction.
Thanks to the water pressure dislodging the fat instead, WAL does not cause unnecessary trauma to the area. This, combined with the use of local anaesthesia instead of general anaesthesia, allows water assisted lipo to be very gentle on the body and have a short recovery time for patients.
Power assisted liposuction is performed using a special cannula which uses tiny, rapid vibrations to break up fat cells so that they can be suctioned out of the body. We can remove more fat in a shorter period of time, and in stubborn areas which leads to enhanced results, a safer procedure, and faster recovery.
