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 Ditesheim reports that some surgeons continue to use outdated techniques because they’re faster.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.”
