Liposuction has become one of the most popular and commonly performed cosmetic procedures. It also happens to be the most talked about procedure when it comes to body contouring. But nothing is perfect and it also has its downside like possible complications, pain associated with the procedure and most definitely the downtime.
There is a trending type of liposuction called body jet liposuction. It is the latest innovation when it comes to liposuction technology. With body jet liposuction you can contour and reshape your body, recover more quickly than the usual liposuction downtime, have very little discomfort and get to experience all the long lasting benefits of liposuction.
Body jet liposuction also known as water lipo washes away fats with fluid spray and is the most effective type of liposuction that can remove fat cells in certain hard to reach parts of the body. With water lipo the recovery is fast since patients usually get back to their daily activities after about a week and after two weeks they can exercise and do anything they basically want.
As with all procedures there are risks involved and body jet liposuction is no exception. Some of the risks involved are;
During and after the procedure there can be bleeding. There is also a risk of Hematoma which is when blood from suctioned areas collects and forms after surgery.
Infection is a common risk when it comes to any kind of surgery. Although during liposuction the incisions made are quite small there is still a chance that the wound might get infected if it is not kept clean. Getting fat and necrosis tissue is also a possible risk. Necrosis is dead tissue and can cause serious post-surgery infection.
Pulmonary edema is when there is a build-up of fluids in the lungs and it can be caused by the fluids injected into the body during body jet liposuction. This typically occurs when the patient is over hydrated and it can be a serious complication.
During body jet liposuction procedure fluid shifting occurs. This happens when fluids are being injected in to the body other fluids are being eliminated from the body. There is a risk of dehydration if there is no adequate fluid replacement during the treatment.
Most liposuction procedures are done on the abdominal area hence the risk of puncturing organs during the procedure.
There is still a risk that after the first procedure you might not get the optimal desired results. You might get some bumps, dents or contour irregularities which may require another session to correct.
Immediately after the surgery you may experience some form of burning sensation and pain or even numbness in the area. This is usually temporary and the pain medication is given for 4 days only. A constrictive bandage is applied to minimize swelling and promote healing. It is removed afterwards and the patient is advised to wear an elastic garment for a few weeks. Oral antibiotics are given so as to prevent any possible infection.
A follow up appointment is necessary as there might be fluid drainage after the procedure coming out of the incisions. The recovery time depends on the health condition of the patient although 90% of patients recover within five days. Strenuous activities should be avoided for at least 2 weeks after the procedure.
