What is Water Jet Assisted Liposuction?

Water jet assisted liposuction is one of the most popular liposuction procedures currently available. Also called body jet liposuction, this popular treatment is designed to help you lose the difficult fat deposits found under your skin and give you a more contoured profile. Water jet assisted liposuction also helps in reducing the appearance of lipedema. This treatment uses a pressurized stream of a saline solution to dislodge and remove fat tissue. This process allows for a gentler method on the body to remove the treated fat cells.

Is Water Jet Assisted Liposuction Painful?

The comfort of our patients is a top priority. Water jet assisted liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure, allowing most patients to remain virtually pain-free from start to finish. Only a local anesthetic is needed to keep our patients pain-free. A small cannula is used to remove the dislodged fat tissue through a small incision made in the treatment area.
