What is Body-jet Liposuction?

Surgical liposuction is a time-tested procedure that decreases undesired and unsightly fat from your body. It provides fast results for individuals who want a more toned figure but are not receiving results with diet and exercise. Body-Jet liposuction is a water-assisted liposuction procedure that typically yields similar outcomes for those wanting to rid fat cells from their problem area but are not quite sure about the invasiveness or commitment to standard liposuction. Minimally invasive Body-Jet liposuction can help you achieve a thinner face, neck, arms, stomach, and legs. If this sounds like something you've been waiting for, plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Suzman is pleased to offer Body-Jet water-assisted liposuction, an innovative technology for less invasive lipo at Dr. Michael Suzman in Westchester County, NY.

Am I a good candidate for body-jet liposuction?

Body-Jet isn't a weight loss system. You should see a noticeable decrease in the fatty areas that typically don't respond well to diet and exercise, but it is imperative that you don't rely completely on the procedure for weight loss or management. If you are healthy enough for traditional liposuction, you are probably a good candidate for Body-Jet as well. Those most likely to benefit from Body-jet water-assisted liposuction:

  • Are in great health overall
  • Remain within 25 pounds of their goal weight
  • Have realistic expectations
  • Eat a healthy diet and maintain an exercise routine

How does body-jet liposuction work?

Much like traditional liposuction, Body-Jet liposuction requires the use of incisions and a fat-suctioning device called a cannula. However, because of the water lipolysis technology, both the incisions and cannula are much smaller than those of standard liposuction. During the surgical procedure, Dr. Suzman will move the Body-Jet handpiece in a controlled motion under the skin. As the fat cells come into contact with the pressure from the water, they will begin to swell and liquefy. Dr. Suzman will then extract the fat cells with the cannula. The water-assisted liposuction procedure also encourages collagen production, which will help tone and tighten the skin during recovery.

What can I expect after body-jet liposuction?

While the Body-jet treatment is minimally invasive, it should still be completed in a fully accredited surgery center like Dr. Michael Suzman. The anesthesia employed for your procedure will depend upon the area to be treated. The procedure will last about an hour per area. Upon the completion of the surgery, you should prepare for some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. These symptoms are standard and are likely to fade over the coming weeks. Optimal results will be visible about six weeks post-procedure.
