New HydraSolve™ Lipoplasty System launched at American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Meeting

IRVINE, Calif., May 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Andrew Technologies, LLC launched the HydraSolve™ Lipoplasty System today at the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) in Vancouver, BC. ASAPS is the leading plastic surgery medical conference for surgeons focused on aesthetic body contouring and is attended by approximately 3,000 plastic surgeons.

HydraSolve™ is an FDA-cleared 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 pressure and temperature, 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 damaging or cutting blood vessels, nerves or connective tissue. HydraSolve™ achieves liquefaction of fat tissue by cell disaggregation, not by the lysing of cell membranes.

The HydraSolve™ system is displayed at booth #333. There is also a Hot Topics presentation today by Dr. Richard D'Amico (past-President of ASPS) where Dr. D'Amico will highlight his clinical experiences with HydraSolve. Additionally, Andrew Technologies has submitted two e-Posters. Scientific poster # 5266 provides data from the safety studies supporting our FDA clearance, Scientific poster # 5233 provides results of the largest consumer survey ever reported in Lipoplasty with 21,509 respondents.

Since the 2010 FDA clearance of HydraSolve™, Andrew Technologies has been engaged in clinical development of the device with several leading Plastic Surgeons to demonstrate the full potential of HydraSolve in over 50 patient cases. According to Dr. Richard D'Amico of Englewood, N.J., "It is clearly more efficient and my opinion is that it is less traumatic and may result in less blood loss for a given amount of lipoaspirate." Dr. Christopher Godek of Toms River, NJ, and President of the NJ Society of Plastic Surgery, has contributed to the development of the HydraSolve™ technology since its inception and observed that "HydraSolve™ provides faster, smoother fat extraction for the surgeon, with a quicker recovery for patients."  Dr. David Abramson, another expert plastic surgeon in New York and New Jersey has more recently started using HydraSolve and added, "With the first patient I treated, on her first post-op visit I had to actively search for some bruising and almost didn't find any."

Dr. Mark S. Andrew, who co-invented HydraSolve™ and related technologies, is now Chief Scientific Officer of Andrew Technologies and has been directly involved with all of the research and development of HydraSolve™.  According to Dr. Andrew, "HydraSolve™ is better for patients because it is gentle and tissue-friendly; it's better for surgeons because it gives them excellent control and precision in removing fat, and it also reduces their physical exertion."
