Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) January 23, 2009
Dr. Jeffrey Liu of Las Vegas, is one of only 13 elite physicians in the US who are authorized to perform the new FDA approved water assisted liposuction. The new procedure also known as WAL, uses water to break down the extracellular matrix that holds fat cells together. As a result, fat cells can be removed gently for ultimate patient comfort and safety.
According to Dr. Liu of Miracle Image Medaesthetic Institute (http://www.miracle-image.com) the procedure can be done in a physician's office using only local anesthesia, so patients avoid the risks and complications of general anesthesia. A small amount of numbing medicine is added to the water during the entire procedure.
Water assisted lipo uses a Body Jet Liposuction machine, which is more natural to the delicate body than lasers, ultrasound, or other means of liposuction. Patients can choose to take mild sedatives to sleep through the procedure or they can remain awake throughout. Either way, patients find the procedure very comfortable.
"The WAL technique is ultra efficient, as it allows more fat removal in less time with unmatched liposuction precision and results," said Dr. Liu. "An average liposuction area can be completed without general anesthesia in just one hour and can usually be done with a single, small 2 to 3 mm incision for quick healing."
Typically, a patient comes in without the restriction of food intake or fasting. The preoperative pictures are taken, informed consent is reviewed, vital signs are taken and then liposuction is started. "Water Assisted Lipo is safe, comfortable and the patients see results right away, said Dr. Liu. "Most patients go back to work in one or two days."
Who is a good candidate? "Anybody who is healthy and not pregnant or nursing is a good candidate for water assisted liposuction," according to Dr. Liu, but he is quick to point out that liposuction is not a way to lose weight. It is however, a great way to improve your body shape, contour, or curves and provide the confidence needed to pursue a healthier lifestyle.
