A “Cool” New Fat-Busting Treatment Using H2O

2013 April 10

Charlotte, North Carolina — FOF recently caught up with Dr. Jeffrey Ditesheim about a “cool” new, minimally invasive lipo-technology, called AquaShape, that uses the pulsating action of sprayed water to remove fat and sculpt the body. Dr. Ditesheim is the first first board certified plastic surgeon in North Carolina to offer this procedure to his patients.

“AquaShape is a gentle way to eliminate fat and shape your body permanently,” the doctor told us. “It’s strong enough to remove fat, but gentle enough to minimize downtime.”

Liposuction is the most popular plastic surgery, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, with more than 205,000 procedures performed in 2011.Although lipo has evolved dramatically over the years, Dr. Ditesheim reports that some surgeons continue to use outdated techniques because they’re faster.

“The goal shouldn’t be to do something because it’s faster or more agressive,” he says. “I don’t look at liposuction as a way to destroy or remove fat; it’s about shaping the body to create a more beautiful or more proportional shape.”

About AquaShape

Using the pulsating action of a controlled water spray, AquaShape first separates the fat cells from the surrounding normal tissues and then permanently removes them from the body.  A jet wand, placed under the surface through a small slit in the skin, has a gentle and delicate. movement. Additional energy isn’t needed to remove the fat from the body, since the water has already freed the stubborn fat.

Less trauma to the body and a lower volume of fluid also mean less swelling and bruising and a quicker and predictable recovery.

Results are immediate and permanent, Dr. Ditesheim says.

“I took only two pain pills and went back to work the next day,” says one of Dr. Ditesheim’s patients, after having the procedure. “I love my shape. I’m grateful that I chose Dr. Ditesheim to help make me look just how I feel.”

The technique is so gentle that the harvested fat can be reused in reshaping the breast, buttocks or face. Even better, anesthesia or sedation aren’t necessary. A typical treatment takes 35 to 45 minutes.
