What to Expect

Body-Jet Liposuction can be performed as an in-office procedure under local anesthesia. Using a pulsating water spray through a fan shaped nozzle, this technique loosens fat cells from their connective tissue while vital structures like blood vessels mostly stay intact.

How does it work?

Body Jet Liposuction allows Dr. Hotchandani to remove more fat with less bruising and swelling. This technique also provides the ability to harvest fat for immediate transfer without the lengthy process usually required.

Now you can quickly transform your body using the natural flow of water, with water-jet assisted liposuction. Just as the ocean’s waves sculpt the sandy beaches; the gentle power of Body-Jet will sculpt and shape your body.

FAQ

WHAT IS WATER-JET ASSISTED LIPOSUCTION?

Water-jet assisted liposuction is a totally new liposuction technique and the first of its kind in the United States.

Using the Body-Jet device, this revolutionary alternative to traditional liposuction is gentle, fast and effective. Using the flow of water to dislodge fat, this technique is unlike any other, providing many advantages:

  • Gentle procedure
  • Minimally invasive
  • Rapid recovery
  • Excellent results

Using a gentle, pulsating spray of fluid, water-jet assisted liposuction dislodges fat without the brute force used in traditional liposuction 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 results.

HOW DOES BODY-JET WORK?

Body-Jet Liposuction introduces gentle pulses of fluid while simultaneously dislodging and removing fat. In essence, the Body-Jet is designed to aid the physician in loosening fat using a unique pulsating spray. This fluid spray separates fat from other tissue effectively and with minimal trauma. Body-Jet also removes fluids from the patient as quickly as the fluids are introduced. Because less fluid is in the patient at any given time, minimal discomfort and a faster and potentially more accurate procedure is possible.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

Body-Jet Liposuction sculpts your shape with minimal downtime and discomfort. This procedure is performed under local anesthesia supplemented by use of Nitrous Oxide/Oxygen (laughing gas) to provide additional comfort. Most patients are back to work and resume normal activity in just days. The gentle method of the Body-Jet Liposuction provides accurate results with minimal bruising.

IS BODY-JET RIGHT FOR ME?

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, discuss with Dr. Hotchandani to determine if Body-Jet might be right for you.

HOW IS BODY-JET DIFFERENT FROM TRADITIONAL LIPOSUCTION?

Body-Jet Liposuction delivers pulses of fluid containing lidocaine to gently dislodge fat for removal. This novel approach eliminates the need for the forceful movement of a tube (suction cannula) which is necessary with traditional liposuction. Traditional liposuction also requires a lengthy pre-infiltration phase where large quantities of tumescent fluid (a saline/adrenaline/lidocaine mixture) are introduced under the skin in fat compartments.

While Body-Jet uses these same fluids, less of the medications are typically needed during the procedure. These medications are used by your doctor to reduce discomfort and to manage bleeding. With Body-Jet, the quantity of fluid maintained at any given time within the body is greatly reduced. This allows the physician to accomplish a better anatomical assessment with an improved means for accurately removing fat during the procedure. This new approach using the Body-Jet often can yield a superior cosmetic result. Body-Jet Liposuction is frequently performed in less time than traditional liposuction and patients experience less bruising due to the gentle water spray technique.

WHEN CAN I RETURN TO NORMAL ACTIVITY?

Recovery is usually easy and quick with Body-Jet Liposuction. In fact, many report being almost painfree after just a few days and are thrilled with how quickly they are able to return to normal activity, including exercise.

IS THE PROCEDURE PERMANENT?

Fat cells that are removed by Body-Jet are gone forever. We recommend patients continue to watch their diets and exercise to prevent future recurrence of fat deposits.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH BODY-JET?

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.

WHY CHOOSE BODY-JET?

The results speak for themselves.
