How Is Liposuction Performed?

Dr. Camp believes great results begin at the consultation. Understanding the concerns you have about your body’s appearance and the results you desire is vital when Dr. Camp creates a customized treatment plan. In some cases, he may recommend an alternative procedure such as nonsurgical KYBELLA® injections to reduce unwanted fat below the chin.

Combining Procedures

Combining liposuction with other body contouring procedures, such as a tummy tuck, and a breast enhancement procedure, such as breast augmentation or a breast lift, is a popular option. Our mommy makeover patients benefit from this #HappyCamper experience that produces dramatic results from a single operation.

Liposuction is an essential element of a Brazilian butt lift, which Dr. Camp also offers. Fat harvested from your body during liposuction is re-injected into the buttocks, creating a rounder, more contoured rear end.

What’s the Best Type of Liposuction?

The liposuction techniques available today include various technologies, including laser-assisted and ultrasound liposuction. None of the techniques has been shown to produce better results than the other, and Dr. Camp believes power-assisted liposuction using the proven tumescent liposuction technique offers safe and reliable results.

During tumescent liposuction, Dr. Camp begins by infiltrating the treatment area with a saline solution that includes a local anesthetic and epinephrine, which helps limit bleeding. Liposuction is performed as an outpatient procedure and, in most cases, requires the use of a general anesthetic. Once the treatment area is numb, Dr. Camp inserts a specialized micro-cannula — a small tube that breaks up the fatty tissue and suctions it from the body. Power-assisted liposuction enables him to move the cannula with less manual force, resulting in less bruising and soreness compared to other types of liposuction.

Liposuction Alternatives

Some of our patients considering liposuction may be good candidates for minimally invasive body contouring treatments that reduce fat and tighten skin.

What Is VASERlipo®?

VASERlipo is gentler and less invasive than traditional liposuction techniques. Ultrasonic vibration breaks up fat, freeing it from the surrounding tissue before Dr. Camp suctions it from the body using a cannula. The advantages of VASERlipo compared to other techniques include less swelling and bruising, more precise targeting of fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue, and less downtime and discomfort during the recovery.

The heat generated by the ultrasonic energy melts the fat, making it a preferred option for areas of fibrous fat, which can be more difficult to remove than subcutaneous fat. Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) also uses rapid vibration to break up fat but doesn’t generate thermal energy.

What Is Renuvion®?

This innovative skin tightening treatment can be used as a stand-alone procedure or to enhance liposuction results. One of the concerns with liposuction is that moderately saggy skin doesn’t “shrink to fit” the body’s new contours once the fat is removed. Renuvion’s combination of thermal radiofrequency energy with cold plasma energy enables Dr. Camp to promote skin contraction immediately after liposuction without the risk of burns.

Cleared by the FDA, Renuvion involves inserting a small probe through small incisions, targeting the skin from below rather than through the surface. The groundbreaking technology produces immediate skin contraction and can be used in multiple areas during a single treatment session, including the stomach, back, inner and outer thighs, arms, bra fat, waist, and flanks. Dr. Camp uses Renuvion effectively and safely virtually anywhere on the body where he performs liposuction or where patients have lax skin.

How Long Is Liposuction Recovery?

Using the local anesthetic in tumescent liposuction results in a more comfortable recovery compared to a general anesthetic. Immediately after completing the procedure, Dr. Camp bandages the area and has you wear a compression garment that helps minimize swelling. Excess fluid drains from the tiny incisions and is absorbed by the bandages, greatly reducing the risk of having fluid trapped within the tissue.

Dr. Camp provides detailed postoperative instructions that, when followed, enhance the recovery process and lead to optimal results. Depending on the specific treatment area, you should plan on wearing the compression garment for 3 to 7 days after the procedure. Most patients can return to work about 2 days after liposuction and can gradually resume their exercise routine starting about 4 days after the procedure.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost in Fort Worth, TX?

The cost of your procedure will depend on a number of factors, such as the treatment area and the liposuction technique used for your procedure. Dr. Camp will discuss the surgical plan he believes is best for you, and you’ll receive a detailed price quote at your consultation.

These are the starting prices for our procedures, the 6 month no interest* payment calculation, the 36 month fixed interest payment calculation, and the deposit required when you finance using PatientFi.

Liposuction Frequently Asked Questions

Is liposuction painful?

Discomfort is usually moderate for the first few days after liposuction; prescription medication is usually enough to keep patients comfortable. VASERlipo is gentler than other fat removal methods, so there’s less discomfort after surgery.

Will I have to wear a compression garment after surgery?

Yes. Patients typically need to wear compression garments for 3 to 7 days to minimize swelling and help the skin heal smoothly over the underlying contours.

Is the procedure safe?  

Complications are rare when liposuction is performed by an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon who is mindful of the volume of fat they remove.

What are the most common areas to get liposuction?

Liposuction is commonly used to remove pockets of excess fat from under the chin and on the upper arms, back, waist, hips, belly, and inner and outer thighs.

Can liposuction flatten your stomach?

Liposuction can flatten a belly bulge caused by excess fat only. You will need a tummy tuck if your abdominal muscles protrude and skin has been stretched.

How much weight can I lose with liposuction?

Even though patients may lose a few pounds, liposuction is not a weight loss surgery. We recommend that patients are at a weight they intend to maintain before scheduling their liposuction surgery, which is designed to remove pockets of fat that cause unwanted bulges.

Does lipo permanently remove fat?

The fat extracted during liposuction surgery is gone for good. Patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle that includes exercise and a nutritious diet can expect the results of liposuction to be long-lasting. Fat can still accumulate, however, although it may show up in different areas.

How can I find the best liposuction surgeon in Fort Worth?

As with all elective cosmetic plastic surgery procedures, it’s important to choose a surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Board-certified surgeons complete years of rigorous plastic surgery training that is unmatched by other physicians. You should also check out a surgeon’s liposuction before and after pictures and read reviews posted by the surgeon’s previous patients on sites such as RealSelf and Facebook.
