Body-Jet Liposuction is a revolutionary alternative to more traditional forms of liposuction. Body-Jet Lipo is gentle, fast and effective for many procedures including abdomen, buttocks, hips, knees, arms and thighs. The fat in these areas is removed using water providing a more gentle procedure that is minimally invasive with rapid recovery times and very effective results. Body-Jet uses a gentle, pulsating spray of fluid, also known as WAL – Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction to dislodge fat without the force used in traditional liposuction procedures. Fat is removed from connecting tissue by this gentle procedure with minimal bruising and tissue trauma achieving excellent body contouring results. Body-Jet patients find this procedure quick, easy and a great alternative for fat reduction.
How does Body-Jet work?
Your doctor will introduce gentle pulses of fluid into the body areas that require the procedure to dislodge and remove the fat with a small tube called a cannula that is inserted just under the skin. The pulsating fluid separates fat from the tissue as quickly as the fluid is introduced under the skin. This procedure produces minimal discomfort with faster and potentially more accurate results. Body-Jet is the “gentle liposuction” technique deployed under three phases: Infiltration – Infiltration/Aspiration – Drying
What areas can be treated with Body-Jet Lipo?
Just about any area with excessive fat can be treated with Body-Jet Liposuction. Most patients use Body-Jet to address problem areas in the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, arms and under the chin. Since the procedure is quick with minimal downtime, Body-Jet patients often elect to treat multiple areas within the same visit.
How long does it take to recover from Body-Jet Liposuction?
Body Jet is a minimally invasive procedure and as a result patients experience much faster recovery times than patients who undergo traditional liposuction. In fact, many Body Jet patients report being almost pain free after just a couple of days and are thrilled at how quickly they can return to normal activity such as work or exercise.
Is Body-Jet permanent?
Fat cells removed with Body Jet do not grow back. Typically, any future weight gain is distributed elsewhere in the body.
Is Body-Jet right for me?
The ideal candidate for Body Jet Lipo is in good health and not more than 25 pounds overweight. Patients with localized, exercise resistant fatty areas will obtain the best results. If you are looking to shed fat with a more minimally invasive procedure than traditional liposuction, Body-Jet could be right for you. Discuss with your doctor to determine if Body-Jet is right for you.
