As the industry's only water-jet assisted liposuction, Body-Jet is setting a new standard and transforming the way doctors and patients view liposuction. Using a gentle, pulsating spray of fluid, Body-Jet offers a new alternative to conventional techniques. By using a high-powered water jet to flush out intact fat cells, this novel approach results in a gentler liposuction treatment performed on patients without the need for general anesthesia. Recovery is minimal, trauma to nerves and blood vessels is virtually eliminated, and the septal attachments between the deeper structures and skin are preserved, which aids in a more naturally tightened and contoured result. The most exciting aspect of the Body-Jet is the ability to remove viable, intact fat cells, which can be immediately used for fat transfer and fat injection. We have seen amazing results in fat transfer to the face for volume loss and to re-contour the breasts for breast reconstruction.
Liposuction is typically a 2 step process. The first step is infiltration, or numbing, in which tumescent solution, or numbing fluid is delivered into the fat pocket where treatment is to be performed. The second step is the fat removal portion of the procedure. The Body-Jet allows the suction cannula to freely move within the fat compartment without causing trauma to the fat or any of the surrounding structures. This is accomplished by the high-powered jet stream that flushes out the fat cells after they have been loosened up by the water stream. The water stream also allows the cannula to advance through the entire fat compartment by gently separating the tissue without traumatizing it. Post-operative bruising is kept to a minimum, and so therefore, is downtime. Best of all, using BodyJet allows liposuction to be safely performed even under a local anesthetic!
