Liposuction Body Jet Liposuction Liposculpture

Liposuction takes some time to recover from, so if that’s what you need to get ready for this summer, you had better get on it!  In this post, Lisa discusses Body Jet Liposuction, the technique I prefer…

Have you pulled your bikini out of the closet in anticipation for the beach and found that it just doesn’t fit the same as it did last summer? Do you find that there just aren’t enough sit ups you can do or visits to the gym you can make to get rid of your stubborn pockets of fat? You might be a candidate for Body Jet Liposuction! One of the most popular procedures that Dr. Mackenzie performs during the pre-Summer months is liposuction. Body Jet water-assisted liposuction, delivers the same amazing contouring results that traditional liposuction offers, but with less discomfort and little down time. The solution used during the Body-Jet procedure, pushes apart sheets of fat cells at their weakest points rather than manually breaking them apart and causing tissue trauma. This allows surrounding structures like blood vessels and connective tissue to remain intact, making the procedure less invasive and more comfortable than traditional liposuction, while still delivering significant contour results. Traditional liposuction destroys fat cells, but the Body-Jet loosens the fat without damaging the fat cell itself. Since this fat is well preserved, it can be more effectively used for injections to other body areas. Fat injections can be done to counter the effects of an aging face or used for body contouring such as buttock augmentation. Besides using state of the art equipment and advanced techniques, the most important ingredient in obtaining a nice liposuction result is the skill and artistry of the plastic surgeon.
