This case is a good example to demonstrate how effective a potent skin retractor can be. This patient was mostly bothered by her pouch-like subcutaneous fat deposits on flanks and abdomen. “Normal” liposuction is unsatisfactory in such cases since it will inevitably result in lax and flobby skin. Our standard procedure here is a two-step approach: as a first step, we remove the bulk of the deep fat with pulsed water jetsteam (BodyJet).
The advantage of BodyJet is speedy and atraumatic fat removal, even large quantities of fat can be removed under local anesthetic. As a second step, we add laser liposuction using the BodyTite system to prevent flobby skin and accentuate the body contours. In this specific case, the combination gave the patient a result that is comparable to abdominoplasty, but without scars and general anesthetic.
