Body Jet / Aqua Shape

What is it?

Body Jet is a minimally invasive liposuction technique. This gentle method of water-assisted liposuction gives superior body contouring results. Since there is no need for general anaesthetics, Body Jet reduces medical risk, while minimizing patient downtime. This method also dramatically decreases bruising, swelling and bleeding. And, since Body Jet permanantly removes fat cells in the treated areas, you can expect outstanding body contouring with long-lasting results. With Body Jet the surgeon can also collect your fat cells and re-use them to transfer them to your breast, buttocks or face. This procedure can smooth out breast irregularities, augment breast and buttocks size, and enhance overall breast and buttocks contours. In the face, your own fat cells can restore youthful contours and reduce the signs of aging.

Who it is for?

Body jet is a method of liposuction for generally healthy patients seeking a fast, low-pain solution to losing stubborn fat deposits. The patient is initially qualified by the surgeon based on photos. After arrival to Poland the patient has some medical tests done and undergoes a face to face consultation with the surgeon and an anaesthetist.

Surgery info

The surgery is performed under local anaesthetics and sedation. The procedure takes place in a disinfected operating room and is performed by a fully qualified and experienced surgeon and with the assistance of a certified anaesthetist. Depending on the area, the surgery takes from 30 minutes up to a few hours. The procedure involves a tiny incision being made in the skin and where a cannula is inserted by the surgeon. A water jet containing local anaesthetics breaks up the fat cells and allows gentle suctioning of the excess fat. This method guarantees the highest safety, comfort and efficiency for the patient. Compering to the classic liposuction the key benefits of WAL method are much smaller amount of anaesthetics used, less tissue damage, the risk of hematoma reduced to a minimum, ability to remove large amounts of unwanted fat and also shorter treatment and recovery time. After the treatment you will be provided with antibiotics, painkillers and other required medication. You will also get a special post-operative compression garment.
