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 for precision cataract surgery. HydraSolve® combines natural saline solution with low levels of temperature and pressure, 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 not liquefying or cutting blood vessels, nerves or connective tissue. HydraSolve® achieves liquefaction of fat tissue by cell disaggregation, not by emulsification and the lysing of cell membranes. HydraSolve® is the first liposuction device FDA cleared for autologous fat transfer. For more information, please refer to www.hydrasolve.com. HydraSolve® is designed to contour the body by removing localized deposits of excess fat and is not intended to treat obesity. Liposuction is a surgical procedure that has risks similar to other minimally invasive cosmetic surgeries.
