The technique of water-jet liposuction is a safe, gentle and targeted method to remove subcutaneous fat build-ups. It offers a very good way for molding the tissue during the operation. Apart from the solution for the water jet no additional drugs are required; therefore, drug-related side effects are not to be expected. The method is simple, easily explained to the patient and quickly learned by the surgeon. It opens the door to new and safer possibilities in plastic surgery.
