Water Assisted Liposuction
Dr. Mark Berkowitz is continuously searching for the most innovative cosmetic surgery procedures available to offer his Michigan patients, and as far as liposuction is concerned, BodyJet™ water-assisted liposuction is the wave of the future.
Why choose water-assisted liposuction?
BodyJet™ ‘water assisted liposuction,’ or simply WAL, is a new technique for removing excess fat and sculpting beautiful curves.
The use of water allows for the gradual loosening of your fat cells, so that your body requires less liquid during the procedure when compared to traditional liposuction. This nuance allows Dr. Berkowitz to shape your underlying tissue without working around a cumbersome amount of liquid.

The recovery period associated with water assisted liposuction is quick and easy for most of our patients, with minimal swelling, bruising and discomfort. You will be able to drive yourself home after the procedure and many of our clients return to work and their normal daily activities right away.
The results of your BodyJet procedure will appear within one to two weeks, at which point you should notice a visible improvement in your body contour.
The removed fat cells will not return, but any weight you gain in the future will be distributed to other areas of the body. As such, it’s important to stay committed to a healthy diet and exercise plan after your treatment, to ensure that you’re able to maintain your new figure.
