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 stops 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?

Although Body-Jet removes the fat cells from your body, 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.
