Is Water Jet Liposuction Safe?

What is it, and is it worth the money? And can it be performed by a non certified plastic surgeon, and would that be safe?

There are plenty of new devices coming to market and many of these are not worth your risk. I would stick to what is known to be safe and effective at present time.

Any cosmetic procedure that is not performed by a board certified plastic surgeon, you are asking for trouble.

Why take this risk and chance, it is your body that your are dealing with and when things are done right the first time it just makes it that much more difficult to fix and you will never have the result you could have had it you had first gone to the right surgeon.
