The Body Jet® is a device that performs water-assisted liposuction, and claims to be less traumatic on the tissue than traditional liposuction. This device can also be used on patients who wish to harvest their own fat. Here, an ASPS Members Surgeon explains how this technology works and what patients can expect in regards to recovery time and outcomes. 

Disclosure: Dr. Robert Gotkin is a paid consultant for Eclipsemed, the U.S. distributors of the Body Jet.
