Dr. Robert J Troell, FACS, FAAFPRS, FAACS, FAAOHNS, FAASM:
The next procedure you’re going to see is called water jet assisted liposuction, also known as the Body-Jet, or aqua-lipo. I was one of the first surgeons in the United States to use this procedure, it was FDA approved October 2008.
The field of cosmetic surgery now the big item is fat grafting both to the face and to the body; water jet assisted liposuction is the best technique to acquire fat. Instead of 40-60% of the fat surviving, with this technique 80-95% of the fat survives. The advantage of this, instead of using a temporary filler in your face such as Resilin, Juvéderm or Radiesse, you can use fat, which is permanent.
