What is body-jet liposuction?

Body-jet liposuction is a proven body contouring method that uses the gentle power of water to remove fat cells from the body. Unlike conventional liposuction techniques, body-jet water-assisted liposuction gently detaches fat from the tissue structure by means of a flat, fan-shaped water jet, with less trauma to surrounding tissue, nerves, and blood vessels.

How is body-jet liposuction performed?

Body-jet liposuction (also known as water-assisted body sculpting) is a minimally-invasive, cutting-edge liposuction technique. The surgeon uses a pressurized stream of water to dislodge and remove fat cells, while at the same time infusing anesthetic, which makes the procedure more comfortable for you. The water is introduced into the body through a water jet attached to the end of a cannula, inserted through very small incisions.

What is recovery like after body-jet liposuction?

This liposuction technique is so efficient that there is little to no bruising, and less swelling during recovery than with traditional liposuction. You can expect to experience less discomfort, with a significantly reduced recovery time. Most patients can return to many normal activities within a day after the procedure and assume their full routine within the first two weeks.

  • Very little post-procedure discomfort, with most patients completely pain-free by day four.

This liposuction technique can be used on any area of the body where you have unwanted fat, and anywhere liposuction is needed in a body-contouring procedure, such as a tummy tuck, arm lift, body lift, or male gynecomastia surgery. As with other liposuction techniques, body-jet water-assisted liposuction works best in patients who do not have a significant amount of loose, excess skin.
