Body Sculpting Milwaukee

Milwaukee Liposuction Specialty Clinic

Brookfield area’s premier institute for minimally invasive body contouring.

Our intent is to offer you an office that specializes in the most technologically advanced minimally invasive liposuction procedures offered in the world today. Liposuction is a focus of ours and that has allowed us to become "superspecialists" in this area. There are many types of liposuction offered these days and sometimes this can get quite confusing. We pride ourselves on offering many different types of technologies under one roof. The advantage of this is that it allows us to use the technology that is right for you rather than resorting to a one size fits all approach. It also allows us to mix technologies to optimize your results [*]. For example, laser liposuction procedures (such as Smartlipo™ or ProLipo™ ) and WaterLipo® can actually be combined for a hybrid procedure, leading to enhanced results [*].

Water Liposuction Expertise

Our president learned from the pioneers of the tumescent technique and, has since, continued to advance liposuction technology himself. Dr. Joffrey is an expert in not only the micro-cannula technique introduced by Dr. Klein, but also is recognized as a leader in laser liposuction. He instructs physicians from around the country in laser liposuction techniques for the Sciton Aesthetic Laser Company. In his search for even more advanced technologies, Dr. Joffrey recently trademarked the WaterLipo® procedure which many physicians around the world are now calling the most important advance in liposuction technology in thirty years.

Water Lipo an innovative fat extraction procedure

What Is Water Lipo®?

Water Lipo® is the newest technology in minimally invasive fat extraction. It is done in the office without general anesthesia or IVs. Traditional liposuction is traumatic because it requires the doctor to crush fat and then suck it out. Because of the force and strain that goes into traditional liposuction, there is often significant bleeding, bruising, and long recovery times. Typically, general anesthesia or deep sedation in a hospital operating room is required for traditional liposuction. Water Lipo®, on the other hand, uses a gentle stream of water to dislodge fat that is then gently washed out of the body. Water Lipo® is considered safer than traditional liposuction because it is performed under local anesthesia. This reduces the overall medical risk and post-operative discomfort associated with general anesthesia. The procedure is virtually painless, without bleeding and, for most people, with no downtime *. Water Lipo® has been done for years in Europe – especially in Germany where it was invented.

How is the Water Lipo® procedure performed?

With Water Lipo® very few tiny incisions are made around the targeted area to inject the local numbing anesthetic and for the delivery of the numbing medication (tumescence). The incisions require no stitches, they heal within days, and they leave no significant scars. After the area is numbed, the surgeon gently guides a cannula through those same tiny incisions. At the tip of the cannula which looks like a straw, a stream of water sprays out 360 degrees. The water pressure essentially dislodges fat while simultaneously leaving more useful structures such as blood vessels and other connective tissue completely intact. A small vacuum at the end of the same cannula then collects the fat that has been dislodged by the water. Because the surgeon is not scraping at the fat such as in other liposuction techniques, results end up very smooth. This smoothness comes because the water is doing the work rather than the scraping effect of the cannula. After the fat is extracted, a laser fiber is used to tighten then the skin where the previous fat was extracted. The minimal invasiveness of the procedure allows patients to see remarkable results, fast. Also, because only local anesthetic is used for this procedure, Water Lipo® carries much fewer risks than traditional liposuction.

Is Water Lipo® The right procedure for me?

Water Lipo® is designed to address bulges that do not respond well to exercise. Everyone is programmed to have a certain number of fat cells in different areas of their body. This is often related to genetics. That's why some people might be athletic, or otherwise relatively fit but may have love handles, saddlebags, or the dreaded 'muffin top' spilling over their belt. Some individuals have trouble areas that are not in proportion to the rest of their frame, like especially large arms, or, in men, excessive tissue in the breast area (troublesome 'man boobs'). Other factors such as body changes after giving birth may also contribute to these bulges. Virtually any area from the neck down to the knees may be addressed with Water Lipo®. Where there is an out of place bulge on the body, Water Lipo® is likely able to solve the problem safely and gently.

How Many Treatments will I need?

Typically only one treatment is required per region or designated area. Each session (per body region) lasts only an hour or two, depending on the designated region and the desired outcome.

How does Water Lipo® Differ From Laser Liposuction?

There are some different brands of lasers that can do laser liposuction including SmartLipo. We believe that these are good technologies. We use laser liposuction in our office. However, we also have found laser liposuction alone to be somewhat limiting in the amount of fat that can be extracted. Laser liposuction is good at extracting small amounts of fat (such as in the neck) but is better at tightening skin. We use laser liposuction in conjunction with Water Lipo® in most cases as a double-pronged approach to fat extraction. Water Lipo® washes away fat efficiently and gently, and then the laser liposuction fiber tightens skin. We could do laser liposuction alone, as many offices do. However, we have found that the best result * possible is achieved using both technologies together.

How Long Does It Take To Recover From Water Lipo®?

For most patients, there is virtually no downtime with Water Lipo®. Even so, we do recommend you plan on taking 1-2 days off of work to be sure. After all, everyone is different and responds uniquely to procedures *. We have experienced patients who go back to work the same afternoon after a morning Water Lipo®. Others may spend a weekend at home resting before returning to work (looking sharp!) on Monday morning. However, we have found that universally, the recovery time from Water Lipo® is significantly quicker and painless compared with those who undergo traditional liposuction.

Will I Have Loose Skin After Water Lipo®?

Loose skin is a question that is often asked, especially by women who are thinking about having a tummy tuck. Because we do laser liposuction (ProLipo) on most areas where Water Lipo® is used, the changes are very minimal *. With traditional liposuction this certainly was an issue: sagging skin resulted when the fat extraction left skin without any structure to hold it up. Harnessing the power of our laser lipo fiber, however, we can simultaneously tighten skin up to 20% after extracting the fat * (results vary by the patient). The good news is that for many women who are contemplating a tummy tuck but do not want the large scars and significant recovery time, Water Lipo® with a laser is an effective, less expensive, and safer alternative.

Does Water Lipo® treat cellulite?

Water Lipo® uses the Body Jet system to wash away fat and a laser to tighten loose skin. Although there have been no studies showing improvements in cellulite, we have noted improvements in cellulite after the procedure. Also, another technology known as Skin Tyte™ is also used in patients which also seems to improve cellulite *.

Can I Use My Fat To Put Somewhere Else?

Yes. Because Water Lipo® is so gentle, the fat extracted is not crushed and damaged. This pristine fat is ready to put right back in somewhere else. For people who get fillers like Restylane or Juvederm, it’s a great alternative. It is all natural because it's coming from your own body and it can be long-lasting.

What happens after a Water Lipo® treatment?

After the treatment, there will only be minimal pain and swelling. We recommend 24 to 48 hours of rest, but most patients can return to work the next day. You will be required to wear a compression garment under your clothes that are not visible through your clothes for about one week after your procedure. Because Water Lipo® is considered a safe, targeted procedure that utilizes water pressure to extract the fat and only local anesthetic, the side effects might be minimal. Any discomfort or mild soreness goes away within a few days in the vast majority of patients. There are no stitches, and the tiny puncture wounds heal within two days. Patients may have mild discomfort and bruising, but they can walk, resume normal activities and return to work almost immediately.

How Much Does It Cost?

Everyone's body is different, so it is difficult to make a generalized cost statement. One person's hips may be very wide, and another holds just a discrete pouch. However, because we perform Water Lipo® and laser liposuction in the office instead of a hospital or surgical center, patients save a significant amount of money compared to traditional liposuction. The good news is that consultations are free. so THERE IS NO REASON NOT to make an appointment and have an easy answer to this question or any other question you may have about the procedure.

What if I do not want to be awake during my procedure?

We NEVER use general anesthesia for liposuction procedures because we feel it is simply unsafe. However, we do offer the option to do the procedure under “Twilight” which is essentially a slightly stronger form of sedation than the usual relaxing pills we provide for you. This type of sedation is EXTREMELY safe and adds virtually no additional risk the way general anesthesia does. Please let us know if this is something that you wish to discuss.
