HydraSolve™ is a novel liposuction device based on the same patented Tissue Liquefaction Technology™ that was launched in 2003 by Alcon as the AquaLase® Liquefaction Device, a modality on the Infiniti Vision System, for precision cataract surgery. HydraSolve™ combines natural saline solution with low levels of pressure and temperature, to liquefy only targeted fat tissue. Because fat tissue is liquefied, the cutting of fat by forceful thrusts of the cannula is no longer required. The specially designed HydraSolve™ cannula is manufactured with aperture edges that have a rounded radius of curvature that do not cut tissue.  It is the energized saline stream, inside the cannula, that liquefies targeted fat tissue while preserving blood vessels, nerves and connective tissue integrity. HydraSolve™ achieves liquefaction of fat tissue by cell disaggregation, not by emulsification and the lysing of cell membranes.

Dr. Bruce Van Natta is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and holds the appointment of Clinical Assistant Professor in the Plastic Surgery Section of Indiana University Medical Center in Indianapolis. He is actively involved in clinical presentations at a national level as an active member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and is also a member of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Dr. Mark S. Andrew, Founder and Chief Scientific Officer of Andrew Technologies stated, "Dr. Van Natta attended our first advisory board meeting a couple of years ago, and we recognized that his experience and reputation as an exceptional plastic surgeon was exactly in-line with our goal to initiate the launch of HydraSolve Lipoplasty System with only the best plastic surgeons in America. We are thrilled that Dr. Van Natta will be the first plastic surgeon in Indiana to offer the benefits of HydraSolve™ to his patients."  According to Dr. Van Natta, "From my clinical experience, I have found that HydraSolve™ is clearly more efficient and is less traumatic than traditional liposuction. Therefore we are excited to offer HydraSolve™ for our patients seeking liposuction."
