As natural fillers and fat transfers become an increasingly popular way to achieve anti-aging results, more cosmetic options are making their way into the cosmetic market. Introducing Aqua Shape, a patented new procedure that claims to efficiently remove unwanted body fat and inject it into more lackluster areas. Aqua Shape is being used to add volume to the face, buttocks, breasts, and even to rejuvenate aging hands. Read on to learn more about the Aqua Shape process, and how it's different from the basic fat transfer.
Above all, Aqua Shape is a dual procedure involving liposuction and fat injections. The process starts with a specialized liposuction technique that uses water to assist with fat removal. Water helps dislodge excess fat without damaging valuable fat cells and surrounding tissue. It's important to remember that any of the fat removed during surgical liposuction—whether with Aqua Shape or another technique—will not grow back. Once the fat has been removed, only poor nutritional habits and a lack of an exercise regime can create more fat cells. Aqua Shape liposuction uses a less aggressive technique than tumescent liposuction, in order to cut back on bruising and downtime. The harvested fat is then immediately injected into the desired body part.
Aqua Shape can be injected into the following areas:
Other areas of your body can benefit from Aqua Shape, but it's best to check with a board-certified plastic surgeon first. Since Aqua Shape uses your body's own fat, there's no chance of your body rejecting it.
As the world of plastic surgery advances, people have come to value procedures that look and feel totally natural. Aqua Shape is the ideal option for such patients. Aqua Shape can be used as an alternative to breast implants, buttock implants, Botox, Juvederm, cheek augmentation, and other surgeries that use foreign materials. If you worry about the long-term effects of implants or are just uncomfortable using synthetic constituents, consider alternatives like Aqua Shape.
Of course, Aqua Shape isn't an entirely au natural process: it still uses liposuction to surgically remove fat. General or local anesthesia is required, and some recovery time is to be expected. But surgery is necessary for any substantial fat removal—if you only have a little bit of fat to lose, you may be interested in non-surgical body contouring like iLipo.
Aqua Shape recovery takes a bit less time than normal liposuction. Patients can return to desk jobs the next day and light activity in a couple of weeks. Bruising and swelling can last a bit longer, with some patients not seeing the full results of Aqua Shape for up a few months. The injection component of Aqua Shape takes less time, with areas healing in a week or two.
