Contact our South Jersey office to learn how body-jet liposuction can help you reach body contouring goals quickly and effectively.
What is Body-Jet Liposuction?
Body-jet liposuction uses a water spray system to precisely dislodge fat cells and gently suction them for removal from the body. It is commonly used to remove fat from the arms, flanks, hips, buttocks, abdomen, and other large regions of the body. Body-jet liposuction can be performed under local or general anesthesia.
Body-Jet Versus Traditional Liposuction
The main difference between body-jet and other liposuction procedures is how the fat is removed from the body. Traditional liposuction uses a cannula to manually break up (and sometimes destroy) fat cells before removing them from the body. Other techniques use laser technology to melt the fat for removal. Body-jet liposuction uses the gentle power of a water stream to detach fat, preserving the fat cells and reducing trauma to the surrounding tissue structure. This can minimize the patient’s pain and swelling during recovery. Often, patients benefit from a combination of body-jet and other body contouring procedures. During your consultation with Dr. Franckle, we will determine which treatment options will offer the best results for you.
Benefits and Risks of Body-Jet Liposuction
The biggest advantage of body-jet liposuction is its gentleness compared to traditional liposuction. Body-jet does not damage small blood vessels and connective tissues the way other procedures do. Other advantages may include less pain for the patient, a quicker recovery time, more precise body contouring with more accurate results, and the ability to remove fat from large areas of the body.
There are risks involved with body-jet liposuction, just like any other cosmetic surgery procedure including bruising and swelling. The best way to reduce those risks is communication with your surgeon. Dr. Franckle and the staff at Premier Plastic Surgery Arts will provide you with pre-operative and post-operative instructions, it is crucial that you read through those instructions and follow them.
Because body-jet is gentler on skin cells, the recovery process is quicker with less swelling and bruising. Patients can expect to experience swelling for up to about three months, but most will be able to function as normal within days of the procedure. Most patients are able to resume normal activities right away, and many are able to return to exercise within two weeks.
Body-Jet Liposuction Cost
The cost of the procedure will vary based on the patient, the treatment area, and other factors. Premier Plastic Surgery Arts offers financing options to help patients with the treatment cost.
