San Diego Plastic Surgeon Offers Less Invasive Liposuction Technique
Dr. Scott R. Miller performs the water-assisted Body-Jet liposuction procedure to help patients remove fat with less discomfort and a shorter recovery than traditional liposuction.
San Diego, CA – Dr. Scott Miller, a board-certified plastic surgeon in San Diego, strives to provide innovative procedures to help patients achieve their aesthetic goals. One of the latest additions to his plastic surgery practice is Body-Jet® Liposuction. Dr. Miller explains that this water-assisted body contouring procedure often holds a number of advantages for fat removal, including minimized trauma and a shorter, more comfortable recovery.
In his blog post, “How Body-Jet® Liposuction Differs from Traditional Liposuction,” Dr. Miller compares the process of traditional liposuction to the Body-Jet® alternative. He notes that while the force of a microcannula is used to loosen excess fat in traditional liposuction, a gentler saline spray is used to dislodge the tissue during the Body-Jet® procedure. Dr. Miller reveals that this difference leads to less trauma to surrounding tissues prior to fat being removed through the suction process.
As a minimally invasive alternative to traditional liposuction, Dr. Miller emphasizes that Body-Jet® can also provide an improved recovery process. In his post, “What to Expect in Recovery from Body-Jet® Liposuction,” the plastic surgeon explains that patients can typically return to their daily activities within five days and can often completely resume their normal routines within the first two weeks following the procedure. Overall, he says the recovery can be shortened by up to 70% compared to traditional liposuction.
Dr. Miller is proud to offer such an advanced cosmetic surgery technique to the San Diego area. He encourages anyone interested in body contouring or any plastic surgery procedure to learn about all of their options and seek a board-certified plastic surgeon. By doing so, he believes patients have a better chance of undergoing the safest, most effective procedure possible.
