What You Should Know
Aqualipo is a less invasive solution to stubborn fat stores. Patients stay away during the procedure and harvested fat cells can be injected into breast tissue to increase breast size and volume. Famous names like Dr. Oz are associated with Aqualipo. Various YouTube videos have been published online showing the Aqualipo procedure as it happens. Aqualipo may be a solution for fat stores that won’t disappear after hard work, dieting and exercise, but removing fat cells does not prevent remaining fat cells from growing larger.
List of Ingredients
In office liposuction procedure.
You have dieted to a healthy weight and workout three to five days a week. Those fat stores around the abdomen from having children just won’t disappear. This is the common story associated with Aqualipo. Patients have tried to lose the extra fat to no avail so they spend the money to have fat cells pulled from those stubborn areas. Will Aqualipo promote weight loss or fat burn? The simple answer is no and the procedure will not prevent fat cells left behind from growing larger if a high calorie diet is consumed without exercise.
Aqualipo is a not a solution for dieters looking to lose 25, 35 or more pounds. Instead, it is for the patient who is at a comfortable weight but wants to sculpt the mid-section, thighs, arms or other part of the body. Fat cells have the ability to grow as needed to store fat. If the Aqualipo procedure is completed on a dieter who has not changed eating habits, it will not prevent weight gain and those stubborn areas will again store fat just in different fat cells.
The procedure is less invasive. Patients claim they drive themselves to the appointment and home after the procedure is complete. Local anesthesia injected with a needle is used to numb the area before the procedure begins. Some patients return to work the following day without pain.
Aqualipo typically costs around $2,000 for a single procedure. In some cases, more than one procedure may be needed to achieve the desired results. There could be an additional charge for NaturalFill. NaturalFill is the process of taking the harvested fat cells and injecting them into breasts for added fullness.
- Aqualipo does not cause pain like traditional lipo.
- No general anesthesia is needed.
- Aqualipo requires no extended recovery time.
- Removing fat cells does not promote weight loss.
- Fat cells left behind will expand if too many calories are consumed.
For the dieter who has reached their weight loss goal and maintained that goal for one year or more, Aqualipo may be the right solution for fat stores that will not slim down. The procedure is quite costly and is not permanent.
