Body-jet liposuction is a gentle technique of fat removal, causing less trauma than more traditional methods of lipo.
A variation on the traditional liposuction, to remove fat form small area this is a water jet assisted procedure that washes away the fat without damaging blood vessels and nerves, so the downtime, swelling and bruising are less. The machine pumps highly-pressured fluid into the unwanted fat using a hollow metal tube called a cannula.
The pressure of the fluid breaks up the fat so more fat can be sucked out than with traditional liposuction, this makes this ideal for body sculpting. The fluid pumped into the fat contains adrenaline which causes the blood vessels to shrink so the risk of bleeding is reduced.
What happens during the procedure?
You will have the area to be treated marked out by your doctor, then after a small injection of local anaesthetic, a tiny incision about 2 mm will be made and a special cannula will be inserted under the skin with a pulsating action, to introduce local anaesthetic and saline solution into the fat pad This solution is then suctioned off, together with the unwanted fat cells. The incision is then stitched and covered with a dressing. The procedure can be done under a light sedation or local anaesthetic. The recovery time is much quicker than traditional lipo.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
Only one treatment is necessary as the results are permanent.
There will be some swelling and bruising, but you should be able to return to normal activities within a few days. It is a minimally invasive treatment using local anaesthetic and involves little recovery time. Just a day’s rest is advised and bruising can take a few weeks to disappear.
Bodyjet results in a firmer, toned body with the same results as traditional liposuction yet a safer method, as it is less traumatic and can be carried out under local anaesthetic.
