Body Jet Liposuction, also known as Water Jet Liposuction, is a procedure used to remove fat from the body by “flushing it out.” With just a few incision sites, fat can be removed from the body in a safe and effective way. Unlike invasive methods of liposuction, Body Jet Liposuction is safer and has a much faster recovery time.
How Does It Work?
The surgeon will use a spray device to inject water into the body while simultaneously taking the fat out. Pressure is controlled during the procedure to make sure the fat deposits are broken down and thoroughly removed in a matter of seconds. Only a local anesthetic is required, and there is a reduced likelihood of swelling and bruising because the procedure is not as invasive as traditional methods.
Areas of Improvement
There are so many areas that can benefit from Body Jet Liposuction. Thighs, hips, abdomen, knees, arms, chin, and back are just a selection of areas patients have requested the procedure. Water can be used to gently dislodge the fat in a number of tricky spots, giving the patient beautiful results.
How Popular Is Body Jet?
Body Jet Liposuction was developed in Germany in 2000, and was wildly popular in Europe before it’s American introduction. It has been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for over a year, and many physicians are selecting it over traditional liposuction methods due to it’s ease and reduced risks.
Risks and Recovery Times
Recovery times for Body Jet Liposuction are significantly faster than tradition methods. Most men and women who elect for this surgery are able to resume their every day activities within a couple of days. During recovery, there may be some slight swelling and bruising, as well as some discomfort, but these things can be treated with over the counter medication. Your skin will return to normal as the swelling goes down, and your beautiful results will be noticeable almost immediately.
