Laser Liposuction such as BodyJet can offer a less invasive alternative to traditional liposuction, it uses a very thin cannula to deliver a specially designed medical solution into the fat tissue. This encourages the fat to lose structure, so it becomes loosened allowing for it to be removed using suction.
Who is BodyJet suitable for?
This treatment is recommended as an option for people who are happy with their overall weight but looking to reduce fat in problem areas that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Traditional Liposuction is a more invasive treatment requiring general anaesthetic (putting the client fully to sleep) and scalpel incisions. It is a more aggressive form of fat reduction removing a higher volume of fat and can create trauma in the treatment area, which leads to bruising, tenderness and swelling for approximately two weeks after the procedure. BodyJet is designed to be more gentle, requiring only a local anaesthetic (numbing of the treatment area only). However the treatment is still likely to create tenderness, swelling and bruising, but it will be to a lesser extent than traditional liposuction.
Effectiveness and results
With Bodyjet a proportion of fat is removed at the time of treatment, but further fat cells are loosened and broken down in a way that makes it possible for your body to remove it more easily. This method allows for more natural looking results that take longer to show, with the results developing over the following weeks and months after the procedure.
BodyJet does not require an extended healing period and patients can return to daily activities straight away, although experiencing tenderness is likely. Results for nonsurgical fat reduction are less noticeable but you will be able to return to your normal daily routine (excluding exercise) much sooner.
