For many individuals, shedding those extra pounds can be difficult if not impossible, even with proper diet and exercise. Certain trouble spots like the neck, chin, and jowls can prove particularly challenging. In addition, unwanted lumps and bumps may appear on areas of the body such as the hips, waist, and thighs.
At Accents Cosmetic Surgery & Medical Spa, we offer facial liposuction to slim your face and neck, along with liposuction of the body (Also referred to as a ‘Tummy Tuck’). If you’re interested in considering call or fill out a contact form online to schedule a consultation at our office in suburban Detroit, Michigan.
Liposuction in Michigan – Advanced Body Shaping Technique
Accents’ liposuction is performed by one of the best plastic surgeons in Michigan, Dr. Mark N. Berkowitz. He performs an advanced technique for liposuction known as Body-Jet® liposuction. This technique offers a gentler, faster, more effective alternative to traditional liposuction. This minimally invasive, water-jet-assisted uses the natural flow and gentle power of water to sculpt and reshape the face and neck. In just a matter of hours, your facial shape can be transformed. In addition to the face and neck, just about any area of the body can be treated, including the chin, arms, abdomen, hips, thighs and knees.
During the procedure, Dr. Berkowitz uses a water spray device that applies a gentle, pulsating spray of fluid to quickly and efficiently dislodge and break down the fat cells. The doctor controls the amount of pressure that is used throughout the procedure. This is a much gentler, quicker form of liposuction, resulting in less trauma to the surrounding tissues, meaning there is less bleeding, bruising and swelling. At the same time, the Body-Jet technique is more precise than traditional liposuction with improved skin tightening and body sculpting and fewer lumps and bumps for a superior cosmetic result. And because there are no stitches, there is no scarring.
Ensuring Your Comfort and Safety
Body-Jet is performed under local anesthesia. General anesthesia is not required for our patients (in the Detroit area). This form of liposuction is much gentler than traditional and generally involves less discomfort and a lower risk of medical complications.
Body-Jet is much gentler. Patients experience significantly less swelling, bruising and discomfort. Recovery is generally quick and easy with minimal downtime. In fact, patients can even drive themselves home after treatment, and most patients are able to immediately return to work and other normal activities. The results of Body-Jet are permanent and the fat cells that are removed do not grow back. (Any future weight is typically distributed elsewhere on the body.)
