Because body jet liposuction is gentler on skin cells, the recovery process is quicker with less swelling and bruising. Patients can expect to experience swelling for up to about three months, but most will be able to function as normal within days of the procedure. Most patients are able to resume normal activities right away, and many are able to return to exercise within two weeks.*

How to Prepare
Before undergoing body jet liposuction, you will have a preliminary meeting with Dr. Franckle to make sure you’re in good enough health to proceed with the procedure. During this time, Dr. Franckle will give you a routine medical evaluation, administer any necessary lab testing, adjust certain medications you’re taking, and advise that you avoid smoking and taking aspirin or any other anti-inflammatory drugs or herbal supplements that could increase bleeding.
Dr. Franckle will also advise you on ways to prepare for your recovery at home. Some tips to make your recovery more comfortable include:
- Purchasing food that’s easy to prepare
- Arranging for someone to help you with children or pets
- Organizing a few sets of comfortable clothes
- Making sure essential items are reachable from your bed
You should also be sure that you have a ride arranged for after your procedure.
Body jet liposuction uses a water spray system to precisely dislodge fat cells and gently suction them for removal from the body. It is commonly used to remove fat from the arms, flanks, hips, buttocks, abdomen, and other large regions of the body. Body jet liposuction can be performed under local or general anesthesia.
The main difference between body jet and other liposuction procedures is how the fat is removed from the body. Traditional liposuction uses a cannula to manually break up (and sometimes destroy) fat cells before removing them from the body. Other techniques use laser technology to melt the fat for removal. Body jet liposuction uses the gentle power of a water stream to detach fat, preserving the fat cells and reducing trauma to the surrounding tissue structure. This can minimize the patient’s pain and swelling during recovery. Often, patients benefit from a combination of body jet and other body contouring procedures. During your consultation with Dr. Franckle, we will determine which treatment options will offer the best results for you.
The biggest advantage of body jet liposuction is its gentleness compared to traditional liposuction. Body jet does not damage small blood vessels and connective tissues the way other procedures do. Other advantages include less pain for the patient, a quicker recovery time, more precise body contouring with more accurate results, and the ability to remove fat from large areas of the body.
Just like any other cosmetic surgery procedure, there are risks involved with body jet liposuction, including bruising and swelling. The best way to reduce those risks is by communicating with your surgeon. William Franckle, MD, FACS and his staff will provide you with pre-operative and post-operative instructions. It is crucial that you read through those instructions and follow them.
