Stubborn areas of fat which resist all attempts at removal by diet and fitness alone can be treated by a number of body sculpting procedures at Harley Street Skin. Body-jet® liposuction is a gentle form of fat removal, causing less trauma than more traditional methods of lipo. This water-jet assisted procedure washes away the fat without damaging blood vessels and nerves and because it’s so gentle, it makes the recovery time and any swelling and bruising far less than with traditional liposuction techniques.

Why should I choose Body-Jet® over traditional liposuction?*
Every person and their needs are different and we would always recommend discussing your options in detail with one of our doctors or surgeons. However the key difference is the short recovery time which is far less after body-jet® liposuction than it is after traditional lipo. The body is less traumatised and the swelling and bruising are minimal.
