Body-Jet Liposuction


Body-Jet Liposuction Along with Aqua Lipo, Body-Jet Liposuction is a leading form of Water-Assisted Liposuction, currently gaining traction as one of the most popular alternatives to traditional tumescenet liposuction.

While Body-Jet Liposuction is performed with traditional suction cannula tubes, the procedure is administered with a steady influx of water, lidocaine, and epinephrine; which act as a streaming form of anesthesia and a safe weapon against targeted fat desposits. With one cannula injecting the body-jet stream, another zaps up the broken down fat cells safely and swiftly. The result is a liposuction procedure that many plastic surgeons prefer for its minimization of tissue and nerve damage.

Body-Jet liposuction has only been available in the United States since 2008, so it doesn't have the long term track record of some other fat reduction procedures. The best way to determine if Body-Jet or another water assisted liposuction treatment could work for you is to schedule a consultation with a local, board-certifed plastic surgeon.
