No. Combination liposuction is a day case surgery, performed under local anesthetic, where patients go home the same day. Exceptions are very extensive liposculpture cases with large volume fat grafting exceeding 2000cc, where one night hospitalization can be recommended.
In contrast to “normal” liposuction, combination liposuction produces visible results immediately. However, some element of swelling will occur, which usually disappears within six weeks.
The BodyJet cannula needs an approximately 3mm entry incision. This leaves a little mark which will usually fade over a few weeks.
In dark- skinned individuals this may take a bit longer.
The fat cells are removed irreversibly so they cannot return. Of course, combination liposuction will not free you from responsibility for your lifestyle
Removal of fat cells with combination liposuction is permanent. Removed fat cells cannot come back. Nevertheless, a healthy and responsable lifestyle is recommended.
One of the key advantages of BodyJet liposuction is that it enables the surgeon to work more precise without distortion of tissues. Therefore, the incidence of irregularities is greatly reduced in comparison to conventional liposuction.
Temporary lumpiness is normal and likely to resolve without further action in the weeks following surgery.
Most patients having combination liposuction will make use of the suitability of Jet liposuction for fat harvest and have fat grafting to a problem zone simultaneously to enhance their result.
Fat transfer as a “collateral benefit” is most popular for breast augmentation, but also to the face and buttock shaping.
Not necessarily. Jet liposuction is very gentle and does not cause excessive edema, so lymphatic drainage is not as important as in normal liposuction.
If combination liposuction is performed in abdomen (tummy) and love handle area, lymphatic drainage is not usually necessary. For cases of extensive combination liposuction on the legs, it may be added in selected cases.
