Similar Treatments and Alternatives for Body Jet Liposuction

Body Jet Liposuction is a liquid assisted procedure that also uses a suctioning cannula to remove unwanted deposits of fat. Body Jet Liposuction is one type of liposuction, but there are other liposuction methods and slimming treatments that are available for people to get to their fitness targets.

Slim Lipo

Slim Lipo, or the selective laser induced melting liposuction, is a minimally invasive procedure that can be used instead of a Body Jet Liposuction treatment, having similar effects. The difference between the 2 procedures is that the Body Jet Liposuction is assisted by liquid, while Slim Lipo is assisted by laser beams. Both procedures will require minimal recovery time, which won’t exceed 1 week. Both Slim Lipo and Body Jet Liposuction will have a tightening effect on the skin by stimulating the collagen under the skin, but the tightening of the skin will only be visible after at least 6 weeks.

Smart Lipo

Smart Lipo is very similar to Slim Lipo, using laser beams to liquefy the fat before this is suctioned by the cannula. The difference between Slim Lipo and Smart Lipo is the wavelength of the laser beams, which is 920 nm in the case of Slim Lipo and lower for Smart Lipo. The higher the laser beam wavelength the better, as it is able to liquefy more stubborn fat deposits. The higher wavelength will also reduce the risk of bruising and other side effects after the treatment.

Cool Lipo

Cool Lipo also uses laser beams to liquefy fat, so it is similar to Slim and Smart Lipo. The method is similar and the recovery time is also the same. The only difference is the wavelength, which is lower than in the case of Slim Lipo or Smart Lipo. Cool Lipo employs a wavelength of 1320nm.

Zerona Laser Liposuction

The Zerona Laser Liposuction is a fat removal procedure, but unlike Body Jet Liposuction or the above mentioned procedures, this won’t require incisions. Zerona Laser Liposuction is administered through injections that will melt the fat cells and these will be eliminated through urine. The treatment is administered in 6 sessions, set at least 1 week apart, which will make this a slower process than the other more invasive liposuction procedures. However, after each treatment with Zerona injections, there will be no downtime. Zerona Laser Liposuction is not suitable for patients that require a more extensive fat removal.

Vaser Liposelection

Vaser Liposelection is similar to Zerona Laser Liposuction, but in addition to injections, the procedure also uses ultrasounds. The Vaser treatment also requires injections and will have more visible results than Zerona Laser Liposuction

Traditional Liposuction

The traditional liposuction is the most invasive fat removal procedure. This can be applied if the patient has a lot of fat deposits that would require several less invasive liposuction procedures. The traditional liposuction is associated with a lot of surgery risks and will require an extensive recovery time, but will give dramatic results. The traditional liposuction cannot be applied on sensitive areas such as the face or neck, while Body Jet Liposuction or other less invasive liposuction techniques can.
