What is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a technique popularized for the removal of fatty deposits that are hard or impossible to shed by dieting and/or exercise. Even a perfectly proportioned upper body may be accompanied by reservoirs of excess fat on upper and lower hips, abdomen, or knees often referred to as “love handles,” “saddlebags,” etc. In properly trained hands, the technique of liposuction or liposculpture is one way to remove these fat deposits with only tiny incisions.


Liposuction Candidates

The technique is reasonably safe, but it is not recommended as a treatment for generalized obesity. First and foremost, dieting and exercise should be used as the method of choice to remove unwanted fat. Most will come off this way. Unfortunately, this method is not always successful in the elimination of some bothersome fat deposits. The hips, waist, abdomen, buttocks, knees, and ankles can be very resistant to dieting.

The technique of lipolysis has been used since the late ’70s in thousands of cases with creditable results, and Dr. Ceydeli and Dr. Duong currently use the latest technology in liposuction, called “Body-Jet or Water-assisted Liposuction.”

What are the Benefits of Liposuction?

There are many benefits. Below, we’ve provided a few of the outstanding advantages to the procedure:

  • The procedure can rid your body of stubborn fat that can’t be eliminated from diet and exercise.
  • The surgery can provide more self-confidence, whether it be in the mirror,  photographs, or in-person meetings.
  • An outstanding benefit is that this solution can help you lose weight. While we recommend patients are close to their ideal weight, the surgery will help rid your body of some of the toughest lbs.

Body-Jet Water Assisted Liposuction

This operation, often referred to as water lipo or aqua lipo, has many names, but one goal – removal of hard-to-lose fat on legs, hips, arms, abdomen, neck, and facial areas in pursuit of a more beautifully sculpted body contour.

Water-assisted liposuction is a totally new liposuction technique and the first of its kind in the United States. Using the Body-Jet device, this revolutionary alternative to traditional liposuction is gentle, fast, and effective. This technique, which uses the flow of water to dislodge fat, is unlike any other, providing many advantages:

  • Gentle procedure
  • Minimally invasive
  • Rapid recovery
  • Excellent results

With its gentle, pulsating spray of fluid, water-jet-assisted liposuction dislodges fat without the brute force used in traditional lipo procedures. Fat is loosened from connective tissues by the gentle fluid spray and simultaneously removed. This gentle method results in minimal bruising and tissue trauma, while still achieving excellent body contouring results. Patients find this minimally invasive approach to be quick and easy, and a great alternative for fat reduction.

Experience the latest innovation in liposuction with Body-Jet! It can be applied to multiple areas of the body during the same session, and after the surgery, skin is perceptibly smoothed, without the pain, bruising, and tumescent infiltration found with standard liposuction procedures.


Tumescent infiltration causes tissue swelling, which lowers operative accuracy and can result in serious side effects. Body-Jet Liposuction gently washes away fat without traumatizing other structures such as blood vessels and nerves.

Water-assisted liposuction has proven clearly superior to traditional methods because of the dramatically reduced session length and reduced pain. With Body-Jet Liposuction, less manual pressure is needed to remove fat, and thus a simple local anesthetic can be used. While Body-Jet uses these same fluids, fewer of the medications are typically needed during the procedure. These medications are used by your doctor to reduce discomfort and to manage the bleeding.

With Body-Jet, the quantity of fluid maintained at any given time within the body is greatly reduced, allowing the physician to combine a better anatomical assessment with an improved means for accurately removing fat during the procedure. This new approach using the Body-Jet often can yield a superior cosmetic result.

It provides the ultimate in fat removal with minimal downtime, along with fast recovery and excellent results.

Body-Jet Lipo Differences and Advantages:

  • Water-assisted Method -> Fluid dislodges fat, not brute force
  • Local anesthesia -> Less risk
  • Efficient fluid management -> Less bloating and swelling; accurate results
  • New liposuction technique -> Requires less time to perform
  • Gentle fluid spray -> Minimal bruising and shorter recovery

Tired of struggling to shed the fat? Want to touch up those challenging trouble spots? Body-Jet Liposuction, the newest state-of-the-art liposuction technology, is the answer. Just as the ocean’s waves sculpt the sandy beaches, the gentle power of Body-Jet will sculpt and shape your body.
