Body Jet Liposuction


Dr. Rina Shinn of Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa is the first surgeon in Colorado to provide Body-Jet, Water-Assisted Liposuction.

Body-Jet is a new liposuction method that uses a thin, fan shaped water jet that is channeled into the fat tissue. Blood vessels and nerves are not damaged. Body-Jet essentially flushes the fat instead of destroying it. As a result, the fat easily loses its structure and is released. The fluid used in the procedure carries an analgesic for pain and a vasoconstrictor to minimize bleeding.

This results in very effective fat removal without the trauma and distortion associated with traditional Liposuction. The results are excellent. The patient stays awake during the procedure, allowing the surgeon and patient to reach the desired results much better.


Advantages of the Body-Jet Technique vs. Traditional Liposuction:

  • Minimal damage to surrounding tissue
  • Reduced pain, swelling and bruising
  • Short recovery
  • Less anesthesia needed
  • Easily performed while patient is awake
  • Shorter operating times
  • Smoother results

Meet Successful Body Jet Patients

M.S., 43, who had Body Jet Liposuction on her legs and waist and now LOVES her skinny jeans without a muffin top!

Meet Nancy L. who was very active with Zumba and fitness classes.  But once she hit menopause, she developed stubborn fat pockets on her hips and thighs that just wouldn’t go away. She was discouraged and didn’t like that her clothes were too tight.  Body Jet changed all that.

“I just can’t tell you how amazing this Body-Jet procedure is! I’ve fought these thighs all my life – and they were gone in a morning. My husband says it looks like someone “unscrewed me at the waist and screwed me onto another whole lower body!” On top of the fabulous results, I needed no sedation for the procedure and drove myself home. I went shopping the next day and bought slacks two sizes smaller than usual. Absolutely amazing!”

- Lori G

“I recently had the Body Jet liposuction on my thighs, which did not require anesthesia and I was told that other people were going back to work the very next day.

The people at Adonis were very kind and helpful in answering all of my questions. I have all the confidence in Adonis Cosmetic Surgery & Spa with Dr. Shinn. She was great to work with. I would recommend Dr. Shinn and the Adonis staff to anyone interested in liposuction. Why travel further when we have them right here?”

Fat transfer using Body-Jet Lipo

Since the Body-Jet technique removes fat in such a gentle fashion, it allows a high quality fat transfer to the parts of body that would benefit from fat supplementation such as face, hands, breast, buttock, and others. Compared to the old fat transfer technique where fat cell survival was in the 30 % ranges, Body-Jet fat transfer shows 80 to 90% survival rate, thus giving a permanent correction to fatty defects of the body.
