Had It With Fat?

lipo2Losing weight is not always as easy as exercising and eating right, but that shouldn’t make you resign from the idea that you can have a toned and defined body. Whether it’s issues with metabolism or you just have those trouble areas that seem immune to fat loss, liposuction is a very effective treatment at getting rid of unsightly fat in just about any area of the body.

The Body Jet Technique

Liposuction has been around for about three decades, but the techniques have evolved greatly over that time and nowadays, a patient can get the best fat removal treatment through state-of-the-art technology. The safest and most efficient form of liposuction is done through the Body Jet technique, which offers minimal discomfort as well as reduced risk and a shorter recovery time. Areas commonly treated include:

  • Tummy and abdomen
  • Hips, waist, and love handles
  • Back and arms
  • Buttocks and thighs

Body Jet uses a gentle stream of water that is designed to delicately dislodge excess and unwanted fat, which is then suctioned out of the body with minimal damage to surrounding tissues like nerves and blood vessels. Some of the many benefits of the Body Jet form of liposuction include:

  • Reduced bruising and discomfort post-surgery
  • Swift recoveries
  • Expeditiousness and efficiency
  • Precision that allows for the targeting of smaller and/or more specific areas of the body

Don’t Be Afraid to Ask

Plastic surgeons are medical experts, so don’t be afraid to ask them as many questions as it takes for you to feel comfortable and satisfied. Surgery is complicated and you should not be forced into doing anything you do not understand or feel comfortable with. It is your money and your body, so do not be afraid to stand up for it. Ask about qualifications, certifications, surgery frequency, complications, and anything and everything else to ensure you are at ease.
