Body Jet Liposuction Surgery - also known as 'Water Liposuction' or 'Water assisted liposuction' - is an innovative technique for the removal of unwanted body fat. This procedure makes use of pulses of saline fluids that gently dislodge fat, rather than traditional suction techniques where a cannula is used to dislodge the fat.

Your reasons for wanting to have body-jet liposuction will be exactly the same as the reasons for wanting traditional liposuction. The appeal of this particular method is that it helps to keep bruising and swelling to a minimum, and it also makes it easier for the unwanted fat cells to be removed. This is the preffered liposuction method if you are thinking of a Fat Transfer prodedure, as this gentle method allows the removed fat cells to be ''harvested'' and transferred to other areas of the body instead of destroyed. Ask your surgeon what areas might benefit from fat transfer following water-assisted liposuction, and what results you can expect.

Compared with conventional liposuction methods Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or Body Jet liposuction removes fat with much less force and a significantly lower risk of side-effects. Even in comparison to other available minimally invasive methods of liposuction such as ultrasound based technology (Vaser) and laser technology (Smartlipo) where the tumescent or irrigation solution (containing local anaesthetic and other medications) must remain in the body for a certain period of time in order to take effect, this method significantly reduces the side-effects from the medications in the tumescent solution and overall treatment time.

Theis method also has a much lower risk of bruise formation and injury to the sensitive nerve tissues under the skin. In addition, in Water-jet assisted liposuction (WAL) or Body Jet liposuction keeps the strands of connective tissues responsible for skin tightening largely intact beneath the skin, so the skin tightens and settles quicker. 

The procedure takes less time that other methods of liposuction meaning recovery can be quicker. 

What to expect

Free Consultation with a Patient Advisor

We offer a free, no-obligation 30-60 minute consultation with one of our Patient Advisors. They will work with you to understand your objectives and the results you want to achieve, talk you through the procedure and answer any questions you may have. If you decide that you would like to proceed to the next step and see a surgeon, your Patient Advisor will be happy to arrange this for you. At this point, you will be required to pay a consultation fee. 

Surgical Consultation

The next step is for you to meet your chosen surgeon at the Cadogan Clinic. Your surgeon will use this time to make a comprehensive medical assessment of you, your condition, and your expectations before making a recommendation and personalised treatment plan for you. You will then discuss the outcomes you can expect to see and ask any questions.

The Procedure

On the day of your procedure you will be welcomed at the Cadogan Clinic by your Patient Advisor and dedicated nursing staff. Following a brief medical check, you will meet with both your surgeon and anaesthetist to run through the details of your procedure one final time and answer any last questions you may have.  

Recovery

After the procedure, you will recover in the capable hands of our aftercare team. As we are a day-case facility you can expect your recovery to be complete within 2 to 3 hours. If your surgeon is happy with your results, you will be able to be discharged from the Clinic the very same day. In some cases, patients may wish to stay locally in our exclusive partner hotel the day before or after your procedure in order to be close to their surgeon. Talk to us about these options if this is for you.

Our care and support continues in the days and weeks following your procedure with our complimentary aftercare programme. This comprised of a series of appointments made with your surgeon and nursing team to monitor your progress and recovery. They will also introduce you to several scar minimization techniques and bespoke products to aid your progress.
