  • Liposuction can be a scary word, even for veterans of cosmetic improvement through plastic surgery. Traditional liposuction comes with a number of negative connotations, including painful bruising, scars, ripping and tearing, and folds of loose skin post-op. New breakthroughs in the world of lipo are revolutionizing the procedure. One of these innovative technologies is Body Jet.

    What is Body Jet?

    Body Jet liposuction is an exciting new alternative to traditional fat removal. Minimally invasive and requiring less down time than conventional lipo, Body Jet virtually washes fat away.

    How is this possible? Through water assisted liposuction, the latest in liposuction technology. In this method, a spray of water is used to dislodge fat gently and without adversely affecting blood vessels or nerves. As soon as fat is loosened from surrounding tissue, it is removed, causing minimal trauma to the treated area.

    There are three phases of Body Jet Lipo: infiltration, aspiration, and drying. During infiltration, areas to be treated are numbed. In aspiration, fat is simultaneously loosened and suctioned out through a cannula. Drying is the final step, in which fluid is removed for precise results.

    Body Jet can be used on almost any area of the body with excess fat. The abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, arms, and under the chin are the most frequently treated spots. Body Jet is best for people who are not more than 25 pounds overweight and who have localized deposits of stubborn fat.

    Why Body Jet?

    Body Jet offers promising advantages over conventional liposuction. For one thing, it can be applied to multiple areas of the body during the same session. Because the procedure is minimally invasive, only a local anesthetic is needed.

    Another benefit of Body Jet is the short recovery period. Because of the gentleness of the operation, pain, swelling and bruising are negligible and patients can return to normal activity within a couple of days. The time of the actual surgery is also shorter. Sessions take less time and are less painful than conventional liposuction.

    Fat that is removed using Body Jet tends to be more in tact, not only than fat removed during traditional liposuction, but also in more cutting edge procedures like VASER or SmartLipo. Why, you might ask, should you care how healthy your fat is once it’s left your hips? Because, of course, that fat can be reinjected to volumize other areas of the body, including the face or breasts.

    Body Jet helps contour the treated areas so that your fat loss comes hand in hand with smooth skin and trim curves.

    Once fat cells are removed through Body Jet, they do not grow back. If the patient gains weight, it will typically gravitate towards other areas in the body. Hence, results are considered permanent.

    Body Jet, like any type of liposuction, is not an alternative to diet and exercise. But it is an alternative to tumescent or laser liposuction, and an appealing one. Washing the fat away may sound impossible, but with Body Jet, that’s just what you can do.

      Dr. Thomas E. Young of Young Medical Spa located in Allentown, PA also uses the Body-Jet, many times in conjunction with a fat transfer procedure to the breasts for a natural breast augmentation, or the buttocks (for a Brazilian Butt Lift). The Body-Jet is so gentle on the fat cell membrane that very few are damaged during the harvesting phase with the Body-Jet. Many patients complement Body-Jet’s faster healing time after the procedure.
