Candidates for Body-Jet Water Assisted Liposuction
In general, the ideal candidate for Body-Jet Liposuction is in good health and not more than 25 pounds overweight. Those with localized, exercise-resistant fat deposits will obtain the best results. If you are looking for a way to shed fat without a lot of downtime, Body-Jet might be right for you.
Dr. Langdon performs all liposuction procedures, including Body-Jet Liposuction, in the comfort of the surgical suite at The Langdon Center in Guilford, CT. Using a gentle, pulsating spray of fluid, water-jet assisted liposuction dislodges fat without the force used in traditional lipo procedures. Fat is loosened from connective tissues by the gentle fluid spray and then simultaneously removed. This gentle method results in minimal bruising and tissue trauma, while still achieving excellent body contouring results. Patients find this minimally invasive approach to be quick, easy and a great alternative for fat reduction. Because less fluid is in the patient at any given time, minimal discomfort and a faster and potentially more accurate procedure is possible. Body-Jet is truly the ‘gentle way of liposuction’.
Almost any area of the body with excessive fat deposits may be treated. The most frequently treated areas are the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, arms and beneath the chin. Because Body-Jet Lipo is a quick procedure with minimal downtime, patients often choose to treat multiple problem areas at one time. Patients can also space out treatments if desired. Common treatment areas include:
- Neck and Jowls
Recovery is usually easy and quick with Body-Jet Liposuction. In fact, many reports being almost pain-free after just a few days and are thrilled with how quickly they are able to return to normal activity, including exercise. The procedure offers life-long results. Fat cells that are removed by Body-Jet do not grow back. Typically, any post-procedure weight gain is distributed elsewhere on the body. New fat cells can be formed in the treated area if the patient does not maintain a healthy lifestyle.
