What exactly is hydrolipoclasia?

Hydrolipoclasia is a treatment used to reduce cellulite and localised fat, as well as to shape different areas of the body, mainly the waist, abdomen, thighsarms, and double chin. The application of this technique consists of two phases. The first one is the infiltration of a type of hypotonic serum in the area to be treated, causing a reaction of adipose tissue.


Then, low-frequency ultrasound is applied using specific technology in the area to be treated. This generates bubbles which cause the breakdown of fat cells, and their subsequent elimination through natural metabolic ways. Hydrolipoclasia is typically offered to patients as an effective alternative to liposuction


What is the main objective of hydrolipoclasia treatment?

The main goal of hydrolipoclasia treatment is to reduce fat and volume, but not to reduce weight. 

How is it performed?

It is neither considered an open, traditional surgical procedure nor a minimally invasive surgery, due to the fact that it requires local anaesthesia. In a typical hydrolipoclasia procedure, a lidocaine injection is injected in the majority of cases. 


The first step, once the local anaesthesia has been administered, involves the adipose tissue being infiltrated through a hypotonic solution, which typically contains both salt and bicarbonate. This solution significantly weakens the cell membrane. 


Following this, a low-frequency-focused ultrasound is used in the area to be treated in order to increase the temperature, which eventually leads to the creation of bubbles, which causes the fat cells to burst. 

How long does a hydrolipoclasia procedure generally take?

Typically, a hydrolipoclasia surgical procedure will last anywhere between an hour and two and a half hours

What are the main benefits?

There are a whole host of benefits when it comes to undergoing a hydrolipoclasia operation. The main ones include the following: 

  • it leaves no visible scars afterwards
  • it does not require any recovery time
  • eliminates fat without the need to go under the knife so to speak
  • it is not very invasive

What specialist performs hydrolipoclasia?

Plastic and reconstructive surgeons are the specialists that perform this highly beneficial procedure.
