By Barry Fox Liposuction could be improved by breaking down fatty tissue with warm water before removing it, claims Sonique Surgical Systems of California. Sonique’s liposuction probe has a water channel and optical fibres that pipe laser light to the tip. The laser heats the water as it sprays from the end of the probe, liquefying the fat and making it easier to suck up (WO 99/22656). Sonique says the technique does not harm other tissues because the fat cells are not heated above 43 °C,
