How Body-Jet® Works
Body-Jet® Liposuction is frequently performed in less time than traditional liposuction and patients experience less bruising due to the gentle water spray technique often referred to by patients as water lipo or H2O lipo. Because the water jet is delivered in a thin, targeted stream, there is less swelling during the procedure. Less swelling means that the surgeon can better visualize the areas that need to be contoured and sculpted, offering a more precise procedure.
About the AquaShape™ Procedure
During the AquaShape™ procedure, excess fat is removed from targeted areas of your body where it is unwanted. Once removed it can then be re-injected into areas where extra fullness are desired and can help reduce the signs of aging. The main benefit to the AquaShape™ procedure is that Dr. Malan will use your own fat to enhance another part of your body, resulting in a smoother and more natural-looking appearance. Using your own natural fat rather than synthetic or foreign materials minimizes the risk for infection and provides long-lasting results.
Body-Jet® Safety and Post-Operation Expectations
Body-Jet® is a gentle liposuction technique that does not damage the surrounding body tissue, nerves, and blood vessels. While the Body-Jet® technique offers several benefits, there are still risks involved, as with any surgical fat removal. Some people may experience light bruising and irritation at the incision site, and may need extended recovery times for treatment in highly sensitive areas. Body-Jet® liposuction may not be appropriate for people who have a significant amount of body fat to lose or remove. Individuals who need to lose 10lbs. or more may be good candidates for body sculpting procedures that reposition the skin tissues after the fat is removed, such as laser liposuction or VASER Lipo®. Body-Jet® takes the patient shorter time to recover from the operation than with traditional liposuction. Patients can resume their normal daily routines after only 1 or 2 days of rest after the surgery.
AquaShape™ Safety and Post-Operation Expectations
Like any procedure, a fat transfer such as AquaShape™ involves a certain amount of risk. It is important that you carefully consider the risks and potential benefits before undergoing this procedure. Although the majority of patients do not experience complications, you should talk with Dr. Malan during your consultation to understand the safety issues.
Some possible risks include:
- Seroma - Fluid collection at the site where the fat was removed
- Scarring - In rare cases, abnormal scarring may occur in the skin and the deeper tissues.
- Asymmetry - A fat transfer procedure will not necessarily create a symmetrical body appearance. Factors including skin tone, fatty deposits, bone structure, and muscle tone may contribute to normal asymmetry in body features.
Individual recovery depends on how much fat is removed and which body parts are treated. In most cases, patient downtime is minimal, and many patients may return to normal activities the same day.

Body-Jet® and AquaShape™ Frequently Asked Questions
What areas of the body can be treated?
Almost any area of the body with excessive fat deposits may be treated. The most frequently treated areas are the abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, arms and beneath the chin. Because Body-Jet® is a quick procedure with minimal downtime, patients often choose to treat multiple problem areas at one time. AquaShape™ is normally used to restore youthful fullness in the face, hands, breasts and buttocks. The natural fat can be taken from almost anywhere.
Is Body-Jet™ right for me?
In general, the ideal candidate for Body-Jet® liposuction is in good health and no more than 25 pounds overweight. Those with localized, exercise-resistant fat deposits will obtain the best results. If you are looking for a way to shed fat without a lot of downtime, schedule a complimentary consultation with Dr. Malan to determine if Body-Jet® might be right for you.
How is AquaShape™ different from artificial implants?
With AquaShape™ you are using your own natural fat to enhance your breasts or buttocks instead of artificial implants. AquaShape™ fat injections can give breasts and buttocks a softer, smoother and more natural-looking appearance. The procedure does not use silicone or other artificial materials.
How long is the downtime associated with Body-Jet® and AquaShape™?
Recovery is usually easy and quick with Body-Jet®. In fact, many report being almost pain-free after just a few days and are thrilled with how quickly they are able to return to normal activity, including exercise. In most cases, patient downtime associated with AquaShape™ is minimal, and many patients may return to normal activities the same day.
How is it possible to re-inject fat using AquaShape™?
With AquaShape™, the fat is removed gently, not destroyed by energy or disrupted by force, as is typical with other liposuctions. This makes the AquaShape™ procedure gentle on patients, while minimizing damage to the harvested fat cells. The harvested fat is then immediately re-injected into the face and hands.
