The Aquavage AV1200D is a sterile, single-use, closed system for fat harvesting. Aquavage AV1200D is a 1200cc container, which can be connected in-line with any aspiration pump. The fat is harvested using your preferred liposuction cannula at reduced flow volumes (18 in Hg/500mm Hg). The Aquavage container separates the fat and fluids which allows the surgeon to remove first the fluid portion and then the fat cells from the container via a sterile and closed method. A sterile 60cc toomey syringe is included along with the canister hoses.
Depending on the version you receive, the canister will have an evacuation tube attached or unattached. The unattached tube offers the choice of Luer Lock or Tommey connections. Based on your preference, you will need to cut off and discard the unwanted adapter. The other version includes a Luer Lock adapter so you may exchange the Toomey adapter for it based on your preference.

What is the ideal vacuum level for fat harvesting? Information provided at the IFATS conferences (International Federation for Adipose Therapeutic and Science) recommends keeping vacuum ≤ 18 inHg(500 mmHg). For best results keep your vacuum between 14 and 18 inHg (360 and 500 mmHg).
Does it matter what kind of aspirator I use? The Aquavage is designed to work with any vacuum system. Your current system should have control, and enough power to maintain a consistent vacuum level of ≤ 18 inHg (500 mmHg).
What type of cannula is best for fat harvesting? We recommend a 12-14 guage, or 2, 3 or 4 mm cannula. A simple hole pattern is sufficient, but if you have a favorite cannula pattern, that will work fine.
How does the Aquavage compare to other fat transfer devices available? First, it starts with Lactated Ringer’s in the bottom of the canister to immediately enable separation of the fat as it flows in from your cannula. When fat hits the Lactated Ringer’s, it immediately separates and floats to the top. It is designed for simplicity of operation. Mesh systems that clog up. Basic bucket systems rely on the tumescent to separate. Colander systems are exposed and volatile to the cells.
Can the Aquavage be reused? No, single patient use. It cannot be re-sterilized or reused for another procedure. Contamination is possible if reused.
