How does AquaShape™ Liposuction work?

Using a focused water jet, unwanted fat is separated and then permanently removed from the body through a long hollow tube (cannula).  There are usually 2 to 5 small skin incisions (5mm).  There is minimal to no collateral damage to normal structures (nerves and blood vessels). Dr. Ditesheim, MD, FACS is proud to offer AquaShape Liposuction to both men and women to help them achieve their aesthetic goals. Consultations and appointments are conveniently offered to patients in Charlotte North Carolina.

AquaShape™ vs. Traditional Liposuction 

Aquashape is unique in using water pressure to free up and remove fat.  It is a gentler approach to permanent fat removal.  Traditional liposuction surgery often uses large, sharp destructive cannulas to break up and remove the fat.  Other popular liposuction techniques (Smart-Lipo, Power Lipo, Tickle Lipo, Laser lipo) use heat or supplemental energy to destroy fat before removal.    These techniques create more damage to surrounding normal structures.  More collateral damage is the reason for more bruising and swelling.   For most Aquashape patients, there is minimal to no bruising 24 hours after the procedure.

AquaShape for Men

Liposuction is the gold standard for removing unwanted, excess fat and improving shape. Unlike non-surgical fat reduction, which can only reduce the total number of fat cells in an area, with liposuction a surgeon can remove precisely the amount of fat desired, sculpting a naturally smooth shape. For men, it is most effective in the following areas:

  • Chest
  • Abs
  • Back
  • Neck
  • Calves

AquaShape for Women

AquaShape Liposuction can help women in Charlotte deal with stubborn areas of extra fat. Using a focused water jet, AquaShape helps women regain their curves in the following areas:

  • Tummy
  • Thighs
  • Hips
  • Back-bra rolls
  • Arms

The whole experience from start to finish exceeded my expectations. Dr. Ditesheim did an outstanding job, I was very impressed by his skill and attention to detail. The staff was awesome, I was well taken care of. The results of the Aqua Shaping was incredible and immediate. I really do not think about the area anymore only to be happy it's gone! almost no downtime or bruising. The pain was minimal and tolerable and the results were immediate. I would do this again to another area without hesitation. The cost was very reasonable.
