What You Need to Know About Body Jet Liposuction

Almost everyone has heard of liposuction. It is the most common cosmetic procedure and the most talked about procedure, but did you know that there are different types of liposuction? Body Jet Liposuction is a newer form of liposuction that has been proven to be more effective and have lower recovery time. Here’s what you need to know about this procedure.

No General Anesthesia

Unlike other cosmetic treatments and some methods of liposuction, you do not need general anesthesia when getting Body Jet Liposuction. The procedure can be performed in your doctor’s office with local anesthetic and minimal pain.

Water Assisted

The difference between traditional liposuction and Body Jet liposuction is that Body Jet is water assisted. The water assisted liposuction techniques have been proven to provide less discomfort and pain and a faster healing time. Water assisted liposuction is also thought to be more effective, delivering better results.

Lower Recovery Time

The recovery time for Body Jet liposuction is only one to two weeks. Most patients are able to return to work and do light exercise after one week, with full recovery and resumption of normal activity within two weeks. This is much lower than the recovery time for traditional liposuction, which can take three to four months for full recovery and benefits. 

Using the Fat

Using excess fat from liposuction to add volume to the face and other parts of the body is a current trend. This is a common cosmetic treatment in conjunction with traditional liposuction. Although Body Jet liposuction uses water to assist the process, the fat can still be filtered and used for these purposes.
