A key advantage of the Body-Jet Liposuction system is minimising the time it takes for treatment. Unlike other forms of liposuction, you don’t need to have a general anaesthetic and the majority of patients do not need sedation.

This means you can have your treatment as an outpatient – reducing time spent in hospital and avoiding the recovery usually required from general anaesthetic. Treatment takes approximately 4 hours from walking into hospital, to walking out again.

Virtually any area of your body can be treated this way – abdomen, thighs, arms, knees, calves, ankles, chin and neck. The possibility of not having to go under anaesthetic is there for both small and larger areas of fat removal.

Likewise, if you are choosing to have fat grafting (filling), many areas of treatment do not require the additional use of general anaesthesia – you can have Breast Enlargement using your own fat without needing to be put to sleep.

What is Liposuction with Body Jet?

Liposuction with Body Jet is an innovative approach that integrates the use of a gentle water stream for fat removal. This method marks a significant advancement from traditional Liposuction methods. Let’s break down what makes this technique unique and why it’s becoming a preferred choice for many looking to enhance their body contours.

At its core, Liposuction with Body Jet is about precision and gentleness. The technique employs a carefully controlled water jet that loosens fat cells in targeted areas of the body. This approach is significantly less aggressive than traditional methods, which often rely on physical manipulation to break up fat deposits. The key differences include:

    • Gentle Fat Dislodgement: The water stream gently loosens the fat without causing excessive trauma to surrounding tissues.

    • Reduced Tissue Trauma: This minimally invasive approach results in less bruising and swelling post-procedure.

    • Enhanced Precision: Anthony can target fat deposits more accurately, leading to smoother contours and more consistent results.

One of the most appealing aspects of Liposuction with Body Jet is its potential for a quicker recovery. Since the procedure is less invasive, patients often experience less downtime. This means you could potentially return to your routine more quickly, with less interruption to your daily life.

Moreover, the precision of this method offers a level of control that can result in more aesthetically pleasing and natural-looking outcomes. This is particularly important for individuals seeking not just fat reduction but also a harmonious reshaping of their body.
