Body Jet - Water Jet Lipo

Body jet liposuction, AKA water-assisted body sculpting, is a minimally invasive liposuction method that uses a stream of water that is pressurized to dislodge and remove fat cells. The patient is also given an anesthetic to lessen any discomfort during the procedure. The water is placed in the body via a water jet that is attached to a cannula. This treatment can produce results on such areas of the body as the hips, necks, arms and thighs while preventing damage to surrounding blood vessels and connective tissue.

Patients that are close to their ideal weight, but still have small pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise, are good candidates for body jet liposuction. It is also best suited for patients looking to eliminate smaller amounts of fat from their body. They should also have skin that is firm and elastic.

The cost of body jet liposuction varies by the amount of fat removed and the amount of work performed during the treatment. The cost also depends on anesthesia fees, the area of the country where it is performed and fees charged by the doctor or the facility. In general, the cost is anywhere from $3000-$5000.

Some results will be visible immediately after the surgery as well as some swelling and bruising for two or three months. It can take around six months for the skin to tighten enough that the final results are visible. The results are permanent as the fat that was removed cannot return.
