Body-jet®, also known as 'Water/Aqua Lipo', is an incredibly innovative approach to fat removal and body sculpting. You can think of Body-jet as something of a soft, internal pressure wash; helping to buff away nasty fatty tissue using merely gentle jets of water.
Body-jet perfectly preserves all connective tissue, nerve endings and small blood vessels, focusing its efforts solely on the hard-to-budge pockets of fat that we struggle to shift with diet and exercise alone.
The remarkable difference a Harley Street Skin Clinic treatment can provide
This water-aided approach to liposuction can be the perfect solution to fatty deposits all over the body; whether you're concerned about a surplus of fat on the tummy, thighs, waist, arms, knees, buttocks, calves, flanks, ankles - even the neck or chin...
The Harley Street Skin team know that everyone is different and therefore we would always recommend discussing your fat removal options in detail with one of our doctors or surgeons beforehand, however, for those raring to get straight back to normality after treatment, Body-jet may just be the perfect solution...
With significantly less recovery time than traditional means of Liposuction, Body-jet helps to reshape the body in a way which hugely reduces any post-op swelling, inflammation and pain. This is because Body-jet makes use of only natural resources to gently shift stubborn fat, before extracting in through a fine cannula.
You may even use Body-jet as a precursor to a Fat Transfer by repurposing the extracted fat for insertion elsewhere in the body. For a firmer, more toned body, with curves in all the right places; Body-jet may well be the safest and most natural cosmetic solution on the market. You may even say, it blows other methods 'out of the water'...

The answer to some of the most common questions you may have
It's only natural to have questions if you are considering pursuing a treatment for the first time, and at Harley Street Skin, it's important to us that you feel confident and comfortable at every stage of your journey. To help you find the answers you need, here are a few of the more common quibbles that we find our clients frequently ask...
Body-jet works by using gentle water pressure to break down the membranes of the adipose cells (the fat particles) so they can be easily extracted through a small incision.
During the procedure, a special cannula is inserted under the skin. This will disperse a fluid spray consisting of local anaesthetic and saline solution, the pressure of which helping to break up the fat it comes into contact with.
Once this fat has been worked away, it - along with any excess fluid - is suctioned off via a small cannula and the minute incisions are stitched. This method of removal is extremely non-traumatic to the body as it can target the fatty build up in isolation, and ensures the absolute minimum amount of damage is done to the surrounding cells.
Body-jet aids a significant volume of fat removal so is the perfect solution to areas with excess bulk such as wobbly tummies, thighs, arms, legs, hips, and buttocks. It can also add definition or sharpness to more delicate areas such as the ankles and the knees.
Body-jet is incredible as it is able to target fat very precisely. This is because the water helps to dissect the fat from its surrounding tissues, making it an innovative and complication-free procedure.It also leaves the connective tissue responsible for skin tightening intact, therefore patients often find that skin appears firmer and tighter as a result.
Body-jet treatment can even be used to source fat requried for Fat Transfer procedures.
You will only require one treatment of Body-jet to obtain permanent results.
It should be noted, however, that there is some fat which is not located in subcutaneous tissue and therefore cannot be extracted using body-jet (or indeed any form of liposuction). This fat is instead located in the visceral layers and around internal organs. As a result of this, many patients will continue to moderate their diet and tailor exercise even following body-jet.
Body-jet can take anywhere from 1-3 hours to complete. This will largely depend on the size of the area being treated, as well as how much fat is expected to be withdrawn. Typically one session will be more than enough to correct a localised area of fat, however on some occasions, larger volumes may require a little more attention.
You will be able to see a significant improvement straight after treatment, although the final results will being apparent after around month 2 or 3 - this allows time for any residual swelling to clear away.
In terms of fat removal/reduction procedures, Body-jet is actually known for a significant reduced amount of in side effects. In fact, it is perhaps the most straightforward method to recover from.
There may be some post-treatment soreness, as well as slight swelling and bruising, but this is minimal and will not generally stop you from resuming normal activities from as early as day 2. On top of that, Body-jet also is free from any of the complications associated with of general anaesthetic.
Many patients feel able to return to normal activities within a few days of Body-jet as it is minimally invasive and only requires the use of local anaesthetic. This helps to expedite recovery time, and reduce the effects of post-treatment symptoms such as swelling and redness. Typically, just 1-2 days bed rest is advised. Bruising, however, can take a few weeks to dissipate.
It is advisable that you avoid strenuous exercise, as well as saunas and deep-tissue massage for a few weeks post-treatment. If you are concerned about getting back into a particular activity, and are unsure how this fits in with Body-jet, doctors will be happy to talk you through this at your free of charge consultation.
We would typically recommend taking between 3-7 days from work post-Body-jet, although you will likely be able to return to some light activities before this time. How soon you can return to work will depend on which areas are being treated as well as how active your role is. Doctors will be happy to advise you about returning to work at your free consultation.
