Plastic Surgery Channel Expert, Dr. Fodor from Beverly Hills, California talks about using body jets in liposuction procedures.
Dr. Peter B. Fodor, M.D., F.A.C.S. is an internationally recognized aesthetic plastic surgeon from Beverly Hills and Los Angeles who specializes in innovations in plastic surgery, particularly in the areas of minimally invasive facial rejuvenation and body contouring surgery.
A recent article in American Health and Beauty talked about how surgeons prefer the usage of body jets for harvesting fat during liposuction. The article talked about the benefits of using body jet and had a couple of surgeons validating the usage of the same. Dr. Fodor cautions that science does not fully support the fact that body jet is the best alternative for fat harvesting during liposuction. He has never himself used body jet on a live patient as he always fully checks his techniques in the laboratory before trying them out on patients.
Body jet was initially introduced as a method of liposuction and claimed some superiority over other methods. It was an attempt to improve on processes or methods that were already working very well, but may have needed some improvement.
Recently the focus of the body jet was then changed to fat collection. There are many different methods of fat collection however; the defining question here is whether the fat will survive when it is transplanted to another part of the patient’s body. Dr. Fodor enjoys a very good success rate when it comes to redo liposuction where a lot of fat is required to be transported from one part of the body to another.
