Body Jet® Liposuction

The Body Jet® Liposuction Technique

There are different mechanical methods of liposuction, such as manual aspiration, systems based on vibration, laser equipment and ultrasound, which produce a release and destruction of the existing fat deposits that accumulate under the skin, for its elimination. Depending on the method used to release and destroy the fat, there is more or less damage to the tissues surrounding the fat, such as skin or muscles.

Liposuction with Body Jet®(Water aided liposuction) In WAL liposuction with Body-Jet® the fluid used to anesthetize the areas that must be treated, directly serves to release the fat cells as it is introduced under pressure, through a thin cannula in the areas of the body that we want to reduce. The pressure of the water jet is quite strong to reduce the fat in small fragments, and on the other hand it is so soft that the damage on the tissues surrounding the fat is minimal. We make a simultaneous aspiration of the fat and the fluid that is being introduced, since we use special cannulas that combine irrigation and aspiration, so the procedure becomes much safer for the patient and faster, with a reduction of Intervention time of 30 to 50 minutes.

Liposuction process, and thus its use is much easier and safer to correct other areas of the body that we want to improve by means of an increase: the face, breasts, buttocks, scars, defects after a trauma or accident, etc.


The snuff can complicate the results of the surgery, so you must agree with Dr. Terrén reduced consumption few weeks before and after the intervention.

There are medications that reduce the ability of blood clotting, such as aspirin, so the doctor must inform their consumption and eliminate them from your treatment.

Dr. Terrén explain postoperative care and proper recovery time, as well as their expected return to work activities (1 to 2 weeks), personal and sporting regular (3-4 weeks). Explain the risks and possible complications, and the leaves will be given informed consent to read and sign.

Dr. Terrén will report the costs of surgery. There is no fixed price for all interventions and your case will be treated individually, including the costs of surgery and hospitalization if appropriate, fees surgical equipment and anesthesia. You can check with the clinic staff financing options that may be of interest (see financing).

It is performed under local anesthesia and deep sedation and lasts about 1 or 2 hours, not requiring hospital admission on many occasions.

Dr. Terrén currently practices liposuction in Valencia (or liposculpture in Valencia) with the techniques known as the “Waterjet Assisted Liposuction” with Body-Jet, and the Vibroliposuction that favor the elimination of the most rebellious fatty deposits with a better retraction of the skin.  Body Jet liposuction consists in the use of special equipment with cannulas that emit water under pressure, in the case of the Body-Jet, or that vibrate in a circular and back and forth manner, which causes an emulsion of fat that is more easily aspirated. With both methods there is less postoperative pain, less bruising and better recovery.

These thin cannulas (3-4 mm) are inserted under the skin through small incisions made in the folds, and in hidden areas if possible. Some of these incisions will be closed with one or two stitches.

With the WAL technique of the Body-Jet you also get your own fat prepared for injection in areas of the body that we want to improve, such as the face, breasts or buttocks. This technique is known as “Lipofilling” or own fat grafting.

In the postoperative period, the advantages of the Body-Jet® system can be appreciated. People treated with this method have a faster recovery, with less inflammation and less pain in the days after treatment. There is also a lower incidence of bruising because the system is much more respectful of the arteries and veins under the skin.

With a shorter recovery period, much faster results are also obtained, and it is common that after 3 months of liposuction we can obtain good results with a very good retraction of the excess skin after extracting the fat.

After treatment with Body-Jet® you can start walking in a few minutes depending on the type of anesthesia performed, and you will wear an appropriate moderate compression garment, compression stockings or girdle, which can not be removed during the first 48 hours. After this period you can remove the clothes and take the first full shower. For a week you will wear this belt or stockings 24 hours a day, removing it only for the daily shower. In 3 to 6 weeks after treatment you can definitely remove them according to the advice we give you at the clinic.

In this period he will come to the clinic with an approximate frequency of twice a week to receive recovery techniques, consisting of manual massages of lymphatic drainage, and in selected cases he will also receive different sessions of Tripolar Medi-TriRF® Radiofrequency to improve elasticity and the retraction of the skin in the areas of the body treated.
