Are you considering liposuction but unsure which method is right for you? Discover a new, gentler alternative to traditional liposuction offered by Dr. Richard D’Amico, the HydraSolve® Lipoplasty System. One of the few plastic surgeons with the skills, experience and training needed to use HydraSolve, Dr. D’Amico chose to add this sophisticated new technology to his menu of services in order to provide a gentle, yet effective body contouring option for his liposuction patients.
HydraSolve offers the following advantages for Dr. D’Amico’s liposuction patients*:
- Removes only targeted fat tissue, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed.
- Allows for more precision during surgery, resulting in smoothly contoured results.
- Eases the recovery process, because it’s less invasive than traditional liposuction.
In addition to performing HydraSolve as a stand-alone procedure, Dr. D’Amico can use it to complement a tummy tuck.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
As you age, you may find that you have developed saddlebags, love handles, a tummy bulge or “bra fat.” You can diet and exercise, but these areas don’t always respond to even the most rigid fitness and food plans. In such cases, body contouring with HydraSolve can provide the solution.
How It’s Done
Dr. D’Amico can perform a HydraSolve procedure with local anesthetic, local anesthetic with sedation, or general anesthesia, depending on how much fat needs to be removed and the number of areas being targeted. After making minute incisions, he removed fat through a special liposuction cannula (a slender tube) using low-energy Tissue Liquefaction Technology™ (TLT).
HydraSolve uses warm, low pressure water to loosen fat cells and transform them from a solid to a liquid. Because the fat is liquefied, Dr. D’Amico can gently and precisely manipulate the cannula to extract the targeted fat cells without affecting surrounding tissue.
After your HydraSolve procedure, Dr. D’Amico will provide you with detailed instructions to enhance your recovery. To facilitate the healing process, you will need to take a few days off from work or strenuous exercise. Dr. D’Amico recommends avoiding vigorous activity for 10 days after your procedure.*
Because of HydraSolve’s unique TLT system, most people experience only minimal swelling or bruising. Such side effects typically subside in just a few days. A follow-up visit usually is necessary during the first week after the procedure.
Within several weeks, you will see the full benefits of your HydraSolve treatment*. The treated areas will be subtly sculpted, with problems such as love handles replaced by firm, smoothly contoured curves.
