The Body-jet is a revolutionary liposuction aspiration unit that has completely revolutionized the fat removal process. By using a high-powered water jet to flush out intact fat cells, this novel approach results in a gentler liposuction treatment performed on patients without the need for general anesthesia. Recovery is minimal, trauma to nerves and blood vessels is virtually eliminated, and the septal attachments between the deeper structures and the skin are preserved, which aids in a more naturally tightened and contoured result. The most exciting aspect of the Body-jet is the ability to remove viable, intact fat cells, which can be immediately used for fat transfer and fat injection. The recovery of fat from liposuction patients, has until now, been a laborious process, involving centrifuges and prolonged time to ‘process’ the fat before use for fat injections.
The Body-jet, which can be described as a power washer for the fat, uses a high-powered fluid jet to navigate through the internal tissue, a process which until now, required manual force from the surgeon. The fluid jet‘s action also limits the trauma to the non-involved areas (skin, muscle, septal attachments), which until now, has always suffered trauma due to the manual force requirements of the traditional style cannulas. This novel process allows the surgeon to use approximately 10% of the energy typically required for fat removal, which is much gentler and less traumatic for the patient. This will invariably lead to a greatly reduced recovery time and an almost non-existent complication level.
Liposuction is typically a 2 step process. The first step is the infiltration, or numbing, in which tumescent solution, or numbing fluid, is delivered into the fat pocket where treatment is to be performed. The second step is the fat removal portion of the procedure. The recent advances in liposuction, most namely the fat-melting laser, or Smartlipo, has allowed surgeons to melt the fat and put laser energy into the skin to allow for a much simpler fat removal and tighter skin results. These fat-melting lasers still do not replace the need to have the melted fat aspirated, or suctioned out. The typical process, either through PAL, straight suction, or any other ‘older’ technology, is still traumatizing to the patient, and often times can lead to bleeding, nerve damage, lumps, bumps, divots, and almost all of the time, rupture of the septal attachments. These older techniques are commonly known to the lay public through popular media exposure, and exhibit the aggressive back and forth motion required by the surgeon to obtain complete fat removal. It is this 2nd step where the Body-jet will find its place.
The Body-jet allows the suction cannula to freely move within the fat compartment without causing trauma to the fat or any of the surrounding structures. This is accomplished by the high-powered jet stream that flushes out the fat cells after they have been loosened up by the water stream. The water stream also allows the cannula to advance through the entire fat compartment by gently separating the tissue without traumatizing it. The surgeon’s motion is similar to that of gently playing the violin and is much less taxing and fatiguing in comparison to the previously stated techniques.
