Sometimes no matter how well you train your body or keep your weight normal, your body can still have problem zones. Problem zones are the body areas that have completely refused to respond to exercise and diet. Thus, they always carry some extra weight. Hormones and genetics usually determine how fat cells are distributed in the bodies. This is where liposuction comes in.
Liposuction works best for people who are in good physical shape, have an ideal weight and want to shed some stubborn fat. It is not a way to lose weight if you are overweight or obese. It is a body contouring procedure. There are two types of liposuction i.e. traditional liposuction and body jet liposuction.
A lot of people do not know the exact difference between the two techniques. Therefore, we will compare these techniques below to help you understand the difference.
With traditional liposuction, a tumescent solution is injected into the body. This is meant to reduce bleeding and minimize pain. Small incisions are then made at the treatment site and a small tube or tiny cannula is inserted through which the removed fat cells pass through.
Body jet liposuction is also known as water-assisted body sculpting is a minimally invasive procedure of dislodging and removing fat cells by the use of a pressurized stream of water. A water jet that is attached to a cannula introduces the water into the body. An irrigation solution is then introduced into the fatty tissues which loosens them and makes it easier to remove them while sparing the subcutaneous tissues. This procedure has successfully treated different body parts such as arms, neck, jowls, inner and outer thighs, and flanks.
Body jet lipo is a bit different from traditional lipo because it removes fat by the use of a fine stream of water. On the other hand, traditional lipo involves a vacuum to extract fat. The downtime of body jet liposuction is much faster because the water’s gentle effect keeps the surrounding connective tissue intact. Some doctors vouch for body jet lipo because it requires less anaesthesia, has fewer side effects and less recovery time as compared to traditional liposuction.
Compared to traditional liposuction, body jet lipo gets rid of fat with less force thus lowering the risks of side effects. During water jet lipo, the irrigation solution is sucked out immediately which reduces the treatment time, unlike the traditional lipo where the solution has to remain in the body for a certain period in order for it to take effect.
There is no risk of burns or thermal injury with the water jet method. It lowers the risk of bruise formation or injury to the sensitive nerve tissues under the skin.
Since the water jet procedure removes fat cells gently, surgeons can combine the process with another procedure such as fat transfer by re-injecting the fat cells into other parts of the body.
The majority of the patients return to their day-to-day activities after a body jet lipo within 2 days since there is no trauma.
Now you must be aware of the difference between traditional liposuction and body jet liposuction. Both treatments are effective but body jet liposuction is more preferable because it requires less force and has fewer side-effects. Moreover, it has a short recovery period. However, only a cosmetic surgeon can tell which procedure is suitable for you. It depends on your individual needs, aesthetic goals and service provider.
