Procedure Overview

Our Waterjet Lipo Service utilizes advanced technology to gently and precisely remove excess fat from your body. Unlike traditional liposuction, this procedure is minimally invasive, resulting in less discomfort and a quicker recovery. Additionally, we offer a newer form of liposuction known as Water-Assisted or Body Jet Water Lipo:

  • Water-Assisted Liposuction: This technique uses a stream of pressurized saline solution to loosen fat cells, making it easier to remove. The fat is then gently suctioned out using a cannula, a thin metal tube.

Ideal Candidate

The ideal candidate for Waterjet Lipo, including Water-Assisted Liposuction, is someone who:

  • Has localized areas of unwanted fat
  • Is in good overall health
  • Maintains a stable weight
  • Understands the procedure's limitations and realistic expectations

Recovery Time

Recovery time after Water Jet Lipo, including Water-Assisted Liposuction, is typically shorter than traditional liposuction. Here's a general guideline:

  • Immediate Recovery: Most patients can return to light activities within 24 to 48 hours after the procedure.
  • Full Recovery: While individual recovery times may vary, full recovery is usually achieved within 1 to 2 weeks.

Benefits of Waterlipo:

  • Minimally Invasive: Waterlipo is a minimally invasive procedure with smaller incisions, reducing trauma to the body.
  • Targeted Fat Removal: Waterlipo effectively targets specific areas of unwanted fat for precise body contouring.
  • Less Discomfort: Patients often experience less discomfort and pain during Waterlipo compared to traditional liposuction.
  • Minimal Scarring: Waterlipo uses small incisions, resulting in minimal scarring.
  • Permanent Results: Fat cells removed through Waterlipo do not return to the treated areas.
  • Local Anesthesia: Waterlipo is typically performed under local anesthesia, reducing risks associated with general anesthesia.

Potential Side Effects

As with any medical procedure, there may be potential side effects. However, they are typically mild and short-lived, including:

  • Swelling: Temporary swelling in the treated area is common and usually subsides within a few weeks.
  • Bruising: Some bruising may occur but typically fades within a few days to a week.
  • Discomfort: Mild discomfort can be managed with pain medication prescribed by your doctor.


Waterjet Lipo, including Water-Assisted Liposuction, provides long-lasting results when combined with a healthy lifestyle. Here's what you can expect:

  • Duration: Results are permanent, as fat cells removed do not return. However, maintaining a stable weight is essential.
  • Visible Results: Initial improvements can often be seen within a few weeks, with full results becoming apparent within 2 to 3 months.
  • Lifestyle Matters: The longevity of your results depends on maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This includes a balanced diet and regular exercise to prevent weight gain in untreated areas. While the treated fat cells are gone for good, the remaining fat cells can still expand if you gain weight.
  • Patient Variability: Keep in mind that individual results may vary based on factors such as genetics, age, and adherence to post-procedure care instructions.

Frequently Asked Questions

No, Waterjet Lipo is not a weight loss procedure. It is designed for targeted fat removal and body contouring, making it best suited for individuals close to their ideal weight.

Typically, only one treatment is required per designated area. Each session for a specific body region lasts approximately one to two hours, depending on the area treated and desired outcomes.

Waterlipo combines the benefits of water-assisted fat removal with laser liposuction. While lasers like Smartlipo and ProLipo are effective for precise fat targeting and skin tightening, Waterlipo excels at efficiently and gently removing fat. The combination of both technologies yields optimal results.

Thanks to the inclusion of laser liposuction (ProLipo) in Waterlipo, the procedure is effective at tightening skin by up to 20% after fat removal. Unlike traditional liposuction, Waterlipo with laser significantly reduces the risk of sagging skin, making it a less invasive and more affordable alternative to procedures like tummy tucks.

Yes, the extracted fat from Waterlipo is in pristine condition and can be safely reinjected into other areas of the body. This natural fat transfer option can be an excellent alternative to fillers, offering longer-lasting results since it comes from your own body.
