In addition to the spiral needle for wound closure Doci Innovations has developed a special spiral needle, with which the undesired fat can be removed easily and quickly. For this purpose, the Doci Innovations spiral needle is provided with openings that allow the absorption and removal of dead fat tissue.
The surgeon inserts the spiral needle into the fatty layer of the hypoderm. The needle can be heated and cooled via its handle. When the surgeon inserts the needle into the fat tissue, the temperature is transferred to the tissue - this thermal exchange treatment leads to the reduction of the fat tissue, since the fat cells are destroyed by the temperature change. Small openings in the needle take up the destroyed fat tissue - so the fat can be easily removed after the treatment.
