"The benefits of Body-Jet liposuction for Boston area residents are two-fold: first, it helps remove unwanted fat gently and thoroughly with less force than standard tumescent liposuction,"
Body-Jet is similar to liposuction in that it uses a sterile saline solution to gently dislodge fat cells so that they can be removed easily. However, Body-Jet delivers this solution using a special pulsating action, which eliminates the need for forced manual movement. This method results in less bruising, bleeding, and trauma to the surrounding tissues. The Body-Jet system is also more efficient than standard liposuction because it is able to simultaneously spray fat cells with fluid while also suctioning them out. By shortening the procedure time, the patient's recovery time is accelerated as well.
"Our patients can expect minimal downtime and discomfort after their Body-Jet procedure," Dr. Tantillo states. "The need for pain medication is typically reduced because of Body-Jet's gentle suctioning device, and the treatment can usually be performed under local anesthesia – thereby eliminating the risks associated with general anesthesia."
Body-Jet is best-suited for men and women who want to eliminate isolated areas of fat on the body, or who want to balance their body proportions. Body-Jet can also be used during a tummy tuck for Boston (http://www.cosmeticsurgeonboston.com/
"Generally, Body-Jet works best for the individual who is active and healthy, but who may be bothered by certain trouble zones that persist regardless of diet or exercise," Dr. Tantillo explains. "Body-Jet is not recommended for individuals who are overweight or who have a significant amount of excess skin."
