Dr. Gabriel of Snowberry Lane Clinic is known for being one of the first cosmetic doctors in the UK to provide BodyJet and Jet Assisted Fat Transfer (JAFT), an innovative water-assisted liposuction technique (WAL) that gently rinses viable fat from the body for re-introduction to face, hands, breast and body to provide long lasting, natural and youthful volume.
Best for treating
Small, stubborn areas of fat
90 - 120 minutes
Duration of results
Permanent as long as healthy lifestyle is maintained
The BodyJet, also referred to as Aqua-Lipo or WAL uses a thin, fan-shaped water jet that is channelled into the fat tissue. As a result the fat easily loses its structure and is released. A suction cannula removes the fat simultaneously as opposed to what occurs in traditional liposuction. The infiltration fluid carries an analgesic for pain and a vasoconstrictor to minimize bruising.
What is Water-jet Assisted Liposuction?
- Gentle procedure
- Minimally invasive
- Rapid recovery
- Excellent results
How Does BodyJet Work?
With BodyJet, the physician simultaneously introduces gentle pulses of fluid into the body while dislodging and removing fat through a cannula. In essence, Body Jet is designed to aid in loosening fat using a unique pulsating fluid spray that separates it from other tissue effectively and with minimal trauma. BodyJet 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 fast and potentially more accurate procedure is possible.
How is BodyJet different from Traditional Tumescent Liposuction?
BodyJet results in very effective fat removal without the trauma associated with traditional liposuction and there is no need for general anaesthetic. The results are excellent, allowing assessment of contour and fat removal during surgery much easier. The typical distortion associated with tumescent fluid, such as liposuction procedures, is eliminated. This allows the surgeon and patient to reach the desired results much more easily.
Other advantages of BodyJet Body Contouring include:
- Minimal damage to surrounding tissue
- Reduced pain, swelling and bruising
- Short recovery
- Less anesthesia needed
- Easily performed without general anaesthetic
- Shorter operating times
- Smoother results
This treatment is great in helping achieve ideal results when working with body contouring for men.
