Liposuction continues to be one of the most sought-after procedures in body contouring, and is an effective procedure for getting rid of body fat permanently. There are now several techniques used for liposuction, and some of the most popular treatments include ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and laser lipo.
Another effective procedure is water-assisted liposuction, a technique that blasts away excess body fat with a powerful jet action. This procedure is now available in the state of Colorado, and is slowly gaining recognition as an effective alternative to conventional treatments.
Dr. Rina Shinn of Pueblo recently introduced the procedure to her practice in southern Colorado, and was featured on KKTV News. Dr. Shinn says that water-assisted liposuction is effective because it allows the surgeon to use very precise movements to create the ideal shape and literally transform the body. She is currently the only doctor in Colorado to offer this procedure.
Water assisted liposuction offers several benefits, but is not without its risks. The technique is well-suited for people who have a few ‘vanity pounds’ and pockets of fat that are not responding to diet and exercise. It may be able to get rid of cellulite, and can effectively get rid of body fat sitting on top of muscles. The procedure promises fewer complications than conventional liposuction because it is performed under local anesthesia, and the surgeon has more control. However, there is still a small risk of damage to the surrounding tissues and blood vessels, and side effects from even the local anesthesia that is used.
Still, prospective patients in Colorado now have another option for getting rid of body fat permanently, and reducing health risks with the procedure. The water-assisted liposuction procedure is part of the patented Body Jet system, and is currently available at several cosmetic surgery centers and medical spas around the country.
