Liposuction is a surgical technique that improves the body contour by removing fat excess from deposits located between the skin and muscles.
Dr. Shakhov uses BodyJet ® liposuction technique that involves the use of a small stainless steel tube that uses a thin, fan-shaped water jet, channeled into the fat tissue. The fat is easily released and removed. The suction device removes the fat at the same time. Unlike more traditional liposuction techniques, BodyJet® liquid the technique carries a analgesic for eliminate pain and a vasoconstrictor to minimize bleeding.
The water jet is connected to a powerful suction pump and inserted into the fat through small incisions in the skin. Fat removal is achieved when the suction device creates tiny tunnels through the fat layers.After surgery, these tiny tunnels collapse and thus result in an improved body contour. Dr. Shakhov uses Body-Jet® liposuction and fat grafts system, the most advanced of its kind, being the only available in the city.
The advantage of water-assisted liposuction over other types of liposuction, is that it can be performed under local anesthesia. Since this method is water based, it also uses less tumescent fluid, minimizing inflammation, allows to transform the body contour in real time and dramatically reduce the procedure times.
One of the biggest advantages of this procedure is that hospitalization is NOT required, is a 100% ambulatory safe procedure, painless, and easily removes fat. It is so gentle that minimizes bleeding and postoperative hematomas as never before.
