Water Assisted Liposuction - WAL


Find Cosmetic Surgery Clinics »


Water assisted liposuction is currently under development and is only used in rare cases, usually for research purposes.  It involves the use of a water jet to aid fat removal, helping to loosen fat cells away from their surrounding tissues.  The water is fired into the fat cells in a concentrated beam, and then removed almost instantly by a suction tool.  It is very rare that you will come across this procedure.
