Body-Jet Liposuction in Gig Harbor, Washington

Body-jet is a type of water assisted liposuction (WAL) that uses pulses of water to remove stubborn fat and contour your thighs, midsection, and upper arms. Compared to traditional liposuction, body-jet liposuction causes less damage to surrounding tissue, so there is less discomfort and an easier recovery.

How body-jet liposuction is performed

Body-jet liposuction is a minimally invasive outpatient procedure that uses local anesthetic and takes one to two hours.

Your dermatologist begins by marking the treatment area with a pen. Local anesthesia is then injected to numb the incision sites. Small entry incisions are then made and liquid called tumescent anesthesia is injected to numb the treatment area and firm up the tissue. A long, thin tube called a cannula is then inserted that sprays a fan-shaped jet of water to gently loosen your fat and also suction it away.

Recovery and results

You will see immediate results after treatment that will improve as you heal and the swelling goes down. You may have some soreness but your recovery will be mild. Most people can return to their normal activities within a few days and resume exercise in two weeks.
