Dr. Ringler is the first board certified plastic surgeon in Michigan to be able to offer Body-Jet to his patients as an alternative to traditional liposuction or laser liposuction.
Body-Jet is a new water assisted liposuction treatment, recently approved by the FDA, for removing unwanted areas of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Body-Jet utilizes a unique pulsating water technique to dislodge the fat while simultaneously removing the fat cells through a very small cannula.. Body-Jet is an outpatient procedure that causes minimal discomfort and little downtime. It can typically be performed under local anesthesia.
Fat harvested by the Body-Jet does minimal damage to the fat cells once they are removed, so they may be used to fill other areas of the body, such as the face, hands, buttocks or breasts with more success than with typical fat grafting where the fat cells have been damaged in the process of removal. Body-Jet can also be used in conjunction with other procedures such as SmartLipo Triplex, MACS facelift or tummy tuck.
