Water-assisted liposuction is an innovative method of shaping the body and eliminating a larger amount of fatty tissue. The treatment is carried out using the WAL technology (water-assisted liposuction), which allows for the safe and selective reduction of fatty tissue and brings back the perfect figure using a special water jet. This is the best alternative if you want to fight those extra kilograms – it is impressively precise and much less invasive than traditional surgical methods.
Water-assisted liposuction also allows for reimplanting the harvested fat cells in order to shape other body parts (e.g. in such procedures as breast or buttock augmentation).
Fatty tissue reduction and body shaping by means of water-assisted liposuction relies on flushing fat cells with a special water solution. It is injected using a special cannula that is inserted under the skin through a small incision. The water jet permeates the extracellular space, loosening its structures without damaging other tissues, nerves or blood vessels.
These simply become shifted and do not sustain any mechanical damage. The doctor moves the cannula to release adipocytes, i.e. fat cells, which are to be removed. The fluid, along with the fat cells, is subsequently sucked out using the same cannula and thus it does not accumulate in tissues and cause oedema or swelling.
Local anaesthesia and the appropriate method of carrying out the procedure ensure comfort and complete safety.

1. Surgical consultation
It is the first stage that precedes the procedure. During the visit, the doctor and the patient discuss the problem of excess fatty tissue and the course of the procedure. Then, the surgeon rules out contraindications and informs about tests that needs to be done before the procedure.
The safety and health of our patients are paramount. Therefore, after a consultation, the next step is doing the recommended blood tests. Only when the results are normal can we confirm the date of the water-assisted liposuction procedure.
3. Body Jet water-assisted liposuction
The surgeon, accompanied by an experienced assistant, starts the procedure. Through small incisions, they insert a cannula into the treatment site. The cannula is used to suck out the fatty tissue. Depending on the body part, the procedure lasts approx. 90-120 min.
4. Surgical follow-up
The water-assisted liposuction procedure is followed-up after 7 days.
Preparation for the procedure
The procedure requires certain preparations from the patient. You need to do the tests ordered by the surgeon and deliver the results to our Centre before the procedure.
Comfortable water-assisted liposuction facility in Cracow, at Der-Med Centre.
In order to increase the safety of the procedure as much as possible, each water-assisted liposuction is preceded by a consultation. The surgeon qualifies the patient for the procedure and orders blood tests. Only when normal test results are received can the procedure be scheduled. What is more, the procedure is performed using the cutting-edge equipment. This makes the procedure much less invasive than in the case of traditional liposuction.
The quality of our services is as high as the safety of the procedures. Only when these two factors come together, can we expect the desired result. Water-assisted liposuction is one of the most frequently chosen body shaping treatments. Its effects are so good because our doctor’s experience allows the procedure to be performed at the highest possible level.
Comfort after the procedure
The surgeon will provide full post-treatment recommendations after the procedure. Although the procedure does not require hospitalisation, remember that the treatment site will be swollen and bruises might occur. For a certain period, the patient needs to wear special compressive clothing. It is matched to the patient’s body, especially the treated area.
Can I go home after the procedure?
Yes, the patient can go home after the procedure. Body Jet water-assisted liposuction is much less invasive than traditional, surgical liposuction. What is more, it does not require general anaesthesia, but only local anaesthesia.
Is the procedure performed under general anaesthesia?
Water-assisted liposuction procedure lasts approximately 2 hours and is performed under local anaesthesia, which makes it very comfortable for the patient, while the recovery period is short. Additionally, the patient receives nitrous oxide (laughing gas) during the procedure. Compared to other liposuction procedures, water-assisted liposuction is much less invasive, but very precise.
Can the material harvested during liposuction be reused?
During liposuction, fat cells are sucked out from the treatment area. These cells can then be reused to fill different body parts, such as buttocks or breasts. The harvested material is transplanted in a single surgical session. This procedure yields very natural results.
