Body Jet – The New Liposuction

Body Jet liposuction is sometimes referred to as "water liposuction" and was developed from the tumescent technique. In the tumescent technique, the surgeon uses a suction tube inserted through a tiny incision placed in an inconspicuous location on the skin. With a high pressure vacuum, fat cells are extracted through this tube. The result is a re-sculpting of bulging areas into more attractive contours.

The Body Jet liposuction technique takes liposuction to a new level. The removal of fat cells via traditional techniques destroys fat cells while the water pressure from the Body Jet procedure gently loosens the fat without damaging fat cells. The Body Jet, also referred to as Water Jet Liposuction (WAL), uses a water pressure system that directs the infiltration solution through a thin, fan-shaped jet that is channeled into the fat tissue. As a result, the fat easily loses its structure and is released.

You will be awake during the process and can work with the surgeon to obtain the desired result. With the Body Jet, you have the ability to see the results, even before the process has ended. You can get up during the treatment to look in the mirror and see your results.

The Body Jet provides a very effective fat removal that produces much less of the trauma associated with traditional liposuction. Patients have been very pleased with their excellent results and their immediate assessment of contour and fat removal during surgery.
