As we age, our skin becomes thin and lax, losing its firm toned look. In addition, we lose a significant amount of volume —we lose our collagen and our healthy looking fat. Think of the glowing cheeks and the soft hands of a newborn baby!

How Jet-Assisted Fat Transfer with Body-jet Works
The Body-jet gently removes fat from an area that you don’t want it (the belly, thighs, love-handles, etc). The Body-jet uses gentle water to remove the fat and requires no processing or modification for transfer. The use of gentle water that is slightly pressurized spares the important connective tissues while harvesting the fat cells. This keeps the fat cells intact, rather than liquefied or damaged. This technique provides for a gentle and comfortable treatment with very little downtime. Everything is done with local anesthetic, which minimizes risk and speeds up recovery. High-quality fat droplets are easily collected for transfer to the face, hands, and breasts — anywhere that requires additional volume.
What to Expect
Patients tolerate Jet-Assisted fat transfer treatments well, and have minimal to no discomfort. The procedure takes 60 to 90 minutes for one area, and most normal activities can be resumed 24 hours after treatment. There may be some bruising and swelling, the worst of which is for 48 hours. Minimal swelling and tenderness can persist for a couple weeks. Dr. McCoy has been performing aesthetic injections for years, and the use of Jet-Assisted Fat Transfer is a huge advance for volume enhancement and rejuvenation. Natural, less-invasive, and safe — fat is the future, and it’s here! Treatments with the Body-jet are performed by Dr. J.D. McCoy at Contour Medical in Gilbert, Arizona.
