New Lipoplasty system unveiled today at ASAPS 2012
New York, NY, United States (4E) – The HydraSolve Lipoplasty System by Andrew Technologies, LLC was launched today at the 2012 Annual Meeting of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) in Vancouver, British Columbia.
An invention in non-invasive body contouring, this new liposuction tool makes use of the Tissue Liquefaction Technology (TLT), which combines natural saline solution with low levels of temperature and focuses only on the fat tissue to be removed, and does not affect other vital tissues.
The HydraSolve does not require cutting of fat, thus allowing the surgeon “to move the cannula in a slow, controlled, and methodical manner,” according to the Andrew Technologies website.
Since its FDA clearance in 2010, the HydraSolve has been in continuous clinical development, and used by leading plastic surgeons.
Co-inventor and Chief Scientific Officer of Andrew Technologies Dr. Mark S. Andrew said that HydraSolve is better for patients and surgeons alike. It is gentle and tissue friendly, and it allows surgeons to have better precision and accuracy in eliminating fat while at the same time lowers their energy exertion.
Available during the display was a presentation made by Dr. Richard D’Amico, a past president of ASPS, which emphasized his experiences with HydraSolve. Furthermore, Andrew Technologies provided e-posters that showed data supporting its FDA clearance in 2010, and results of a HydraSolve consumer survey which was participated by 21,509 respondents–reportedly the largest in the history of Lipoplasty.
The ASAPS, headed by newly-elected president Leo R. McCafferty, M.D., is a world-renowned professional organization of certified plastic surgeons focusing on aesthetic and cosmetic surgery. Its mission includes medical education, public education and patient advocacy.
