Many people struggle to improve their body shape through diet and exercise; however, diet and exercise alone may not be enough to eliminate fatty areas in certain parts of the body. Some of the most common areas that contain stubborn fat include the hips, buttocks, thighs, and abdomen. Liposuction is a common procedure in Minneapolis that removes the stubborn fat cells that diet and exercise cannot.
Some traditional liposuction techniques can leave patients feeling sore and swollen for days or weeks after the procedure. An innovative technique called H20-Lipo uses a water-based removal method called the Body Jet liposuction system to remove fat cells effectively leaving the body looking leaner. The Body Jet liposuction system gently removes fat by isolating the fatty deposits from the tissue to prevent any potential damage to the nearby muscles or nerves.
Traditional methods of liposuction use a tube to remove the fatty cells by aggressively suctioning it out. This method often causes a significant amount of swelling and bruising leaving patients feeling sore and tired afterwards. The Body Jet liposuction system permanently reduces the amount of fat cells that is stored using a safer, gentler approach. In addition, it encourages the skin to tighten up and become firmer while permanently eliminating fat cells to leave the body smoother and more solid after the procedure.
The liposuction procedure that utilizes the Body-Jet system allows patients to undergo liposuction in Minneapolis quickly and with little medical risk. There is no anesthesia or sedation used and patients can return to their regular daily activities immediately following the procedure. Treatment on each area of the body can take 30 to 45 minutes.
Good candidates for the Body Jet liposuction system in Minneapolis include those with firm, flexible skin who experience stubborn pockets of fat that do not go away with regular diet and exercise. Candidates for liposuction should also be in good health and at an average weight for their body type. It is not intended to replace diet and exercise and should not be used as a weight loss method.
Dr. Steven Shu of Shu Cosmetic Surgery Institute in Edina, Minn. talked about the innovative procedure during a “Be Well with TLC” segment on the show “Twin Cities Live,” which caters to viewers in Minneapolis and St. Paul. Shu said patients can expect some swelling during the first few weeks after surgery. After six to nine months, however, the newly augmented breasts settle into their best shape and fullness. At that time, if the breasts are not large enough, a woman can elect to add more fat, Shu said.

Women who want larger breasts but not the artificial look or health risks of breast implants are turning to breast augmentation with fat transfer. This minimally invasive procedure uses liposuction to transfer fat from other areas of a woman’s body to her breasts. The result is a fuller bosom that looks natural and contains only natural material.
After removing fat tissue from fatty regions of a woman’s body, such as her thighs, stomach, back or buttocks, the cosmetic surgeon places the fat in a machine designed to harvest cells. The cells are then mixed with additional fat; that mixture is injected into the patient’s breasts. Since this fat comes directly from the patient, there is no risk of her body rejecting the tissue, as is sometimes the case with implants using foreign materials. The combination of liposuction with breast augmentation means that the woman’s overall figure is enhanced by fat removal from problem areas. Slimmer woman may have to gain weight before having a breast augmentation with fat transfer.
