If you’ve been watching your diet and hitting the gym, but still haven’t achieved the toned, well-defined body you’re after then body jet liposuction may be right for you. Despite your best efforts, frequently there are areas of the body that seem to resist weight loss, leaving behind areas of unwanted fat. Body-Jet liposuction offers targeted removal of these areas of fat, leaving you with body contours that appear more toned. Body-Jet is one of the safest methods available today for permanent fat removal and body sculpting.
Doctors have been removing unwanted fat from patients via liposuction for nearly 30 years, and today’s state-of-the-art technology involves the use of water. Body-Jet employs a gentle jet of water to simultaneously dislodge and remove fat from the body. The soft separation of fat cells from connective tissue minimizes trauma to the patient — sparing blood vessels, nerves and surrounding tissue — causes less swelling, allows real-time precise contouring and dramatically shortens procedure times.
Body-Jet offers minimal risk and less discomfort and recovery time. By using Body-Jet, Dr. Adams is among a handful of area plastic surgeons who are on the cutting edge of liposuction technique. Change your shape in a matter of hours.
The Body-Jet Technique
Body-Jet is the latest technique in water-assisted liposuction. During the procedure, a gentle, pulsating spray of water loosens unwanted body fat, which is then suctioned out of the body. The difference with Body Jet liposuction is in the method of loosening fat for removal. With this technique, water is used to gently dislodge the fat, minimizing side effects. When compared with other forms of liposuction, the Body-Jet technique is:
- Gentler, with reduced discomfort and bruising
- Safer, with a shorter recovery time due to minimized damage to surrounding tissues
- A quicker, more efficient procedure
- More precise, allowing Dr. Adams to target very specific fat deposits
Frequently, patients request liposuction in combination with other cosmetic procedures offered by Dr. Adams, such as a neck lift or tummy tucks. Many areas of the body may be reshaped with Body-Jet liposuction, including the abdomen, hips, waist, love handles, back, thighs and arms.
Women and men of various ages choose Body-Jet liposuction. It is not an alternative to weight loss, but is an effective way to target areas of fat that you find distracting or unsightly. Ideal patients are at or near their optimal weight, but have isolated areas of excess fat remaining. If you have a few specific “problem areas” you would like to treat, Body-Jet liposuction may be right for you.

5 Reasons to Consider the Body-Jet
If you’re like many people, you’ve been taking good care of yourself. Getting the right amount of sleep, reducing the amount of stress in your life, forming positive relationships, exercising on a regular basis and eating right. Sometimes you can everything right but, unfortunately, still not get all the results you had hoped for.
Exercise and a healthy diet may be sure-fire ways to lose extra fat but sometimes fat deposits can’t be lost, even if you spend hour after hour, week after week at the gym. If you feel stuck and hopeless because nothing you try is budging your bulge, there’s good news for you! Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction, also called the Body-Jet, can safely and effectively eliminate fat deposits.
Benefits of Body-Jet
The Body-Jet has several advantages to consider. It’s the safest procedure currently available and it also comes with the lowest revision rate of all available procedures. Here’s a quick list of other factors to consider:
- It can be performed under local anesthesia
- It’s relatively painless
- It can be used to eliminate fat deposits in many different areas of the body: tummy, upper back, chin, arm, thigh, knee, male breasts and more
- Minimal post-procedure bruising and swelling
- Fast recovery time
Another advantage to the Body-Jet is that it allows for more contouring because there is much less fluid to obscure the physician’s view of fine details. This allows more precise sculpting and shaping.
It’s a very gentle procedure because the action of fluids loosens the fat. Since local anesthesia is used, Water-Jet Assisted Liposuction can be performed on large areas without the worry of complications caused by general anesthesia.
How it works
Traditional liposuction requires general anesthesia and requires incisions multiple incisions. It also requires the use of large-bore catheters moving in a back and forth motion to remove fat.
The Body-Jet uses a jet stream of water which flows from the tip of a cannula that displaces the fat cells without harming the surrounding tissues. The fat cells are immediately returned to the cannula. This helps to minimize swelling and decreases the chance of tissue irritation.
Most patients experience very little discomfort from the procedure and are totally pain-free by the fourth post-procedure day. Recovery is rapid. Patients resume their normal activity quickly.
Fat harvesting and grafting
When the Body-Jet is used to collect fat for harvesting and grafting, the fat cell membranes are left intact. This increases the chance the fat cells will survive during the grafting phase. This makes Water-Assisted Fat far superior to fat which is collected from suction-assisted liposuction or laser lipolysis procedures which damage the cell membranes. In fact, fat grafting completed using Water-Assisted fat offers a survival rate of 80%!
Dermal fillers, such as Restylane and Juvaderm, are only temporary solutions to reduce the signs of aging. When fat is used as a filler, it offers a permanent answer to restore youthfulness. Why return week after week, year after year when you can have one procedure with such an exceptional record of success?
