Body-Jet Liposuction

Surgical Body Liposuction Body-Jet Liposuction

Troublesome areas of fat that don’t respond to exercise or diet are a common struggle. That’s what has made liposuction a popular procedure as the most effective way to remove stubborn fat once and for all.

If you’re interested in the exceptional slimming results of liposuction but hesitant about the recovery time, Body-Jet liposuction is an innovative technique that’s gentler and minimizes side effects. Dr. Langdon continues to be at the forefront of aesthetics by bringing the latest and most effective cosmetic procedures to his patients.

What is Body-Jet Liposuction?

Water-jet-assisted liposuction is a new liposuction technique and the first of its kind in the United States. Using water flow to dislodge fat, this revolutionary alternative to traditional liposuction is gentle, fast, and effective. Body-Jet liposuction is also an excellent alternative to a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) for those struggling with stubborn abdominal fat.

Almost any area of the body with excessive fat deposits can be treated. The most frequently treated areas are the abdomen, hips, thighs, inner knees, upper arms, and under the chin (double chin). Because Body-Jet lipo is a quick procedure with minimal downtime, patients often choose to treat multiple problem areas at one time. You can also space out treatments if desired.

Common treatment areas for Body-jet liposuction include:

  • Neck and jowls
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Flanks and bra roll
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Inner Knees

Frequently Asked Questions

Dr. Langdon performs all liposuction procedures, including Body-Jet lipo, 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. The gentle fluid spray loosens fat from connective tissues; the fat is simultaneously suctioned out through a cannula.   

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. Dr. Langdon performs Body-Jet lipo under local anesthesia using only tiny skin incisions at each treatment area. The procedure typically takes two to four hours, depending on how much fat is being removed.

Recovery is usually easy and quick after Body-Jet liposuction. In fact, many patients report 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. You’ll likely be able to return to work after only two days. 

Bruising, swelling, and discomfort are normal for a few days, but these will be milder and shorter-lived than with traditional liposuction. Dr. Langdon will give you aftercare instructions and may recommend avoiding strenuous exercise for a couple of weeks. Most of the swelling should subside within six to eight weeks.

Though fat is immediately removed after a liposuction procedure, swelling may obscure your initial results. You’ll see a slimmer contour as the swelling subsides over the next few weeks. 

Body-Jet liposuction offers lifelong results. The procedure removes fat cells permanently, and these won’t grow back. Typically, any post-procedure weight gain is distributed elsewhere in the body. However, if the patient does not maintain a healthy lifestyle, the remaining fat cells can expand. This makes it essential to maintain a stable weight for long-lasting results.

The ideal candidate for Body-Jet Liposuction is in good health and not more than 25 pounds overweight. Like any body contouring procedure, Body-Jet lipo does not replace a healthy lifestyle or weight loss. Those with localized, exercise-resistant fat deposits will obtain the best results. 

If you want to shed small amounts of fat without a lot of downtime, Body-Jet might be right for you. Ideal candidates typically have good skin elasticity. Some patients prefer SmartLipo™ if skin laxity or cellulite is also a concern because this laser-assisted liposuction procedure has skin-tightening benefits. 

Dr. Langdon offers multiple liposuction techniques and non-surgical body contouring so that he can create tailored treatment plans that fit each patient’s unique goals and needs. During your detailed consultation, he’ll help you determine if Body-Jet lipo, SmartLipo®, CoolSculpting®, or some other body contouring treatment is best for you.
