The Different Levels of Liposuction Technology

North Texas Plastic Surgery is always looking to provide the best and most cutting-edge treatments for our clients. Liposuction is the most popular surgical weight loss technique and there has been an explosion in research and development over the last few years to explore the full potential of the procedure. To ensure you get the best results from your liposuction treatment, we offer a range of technology-augmented techniques at our in-office surgical facility.

FAGA Power-Assisted Liposuction

Traditional liposuction involves our plastic surgeon removing fat by hand with a cannula (a small vacuum) over several hours. This can be a tedious process. FAGA power-assisted liposuction speeds up the process by electrically powering the liposuction cannula back and forth—potentially thousands of times per minute! Power-assisted liposuction lets the technology do all the work, allowing our surgeons to focus on creating your perfect contour.

VASER: Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction

VASER uses the power of ultrasound technology to augment traditional liposuction. By passing harmless sound waves through your body, the VASER machine shakes the fat free from the surrounding tissue, pulling it out with far less bleeding and bruising than traditional liposuction. This technique allows us to safely extract a much higher volume of fat, resulting in a much better contour. Furthermore, VASER ultrasound-assisted technology liquefies the fat it removes, allowing the fat to pass out more evenly and producing a smoother result. Through this process, the VASER can collect a much higher volume of fat from your body than traditional liposuction.

VASER ultrasound-assisted liposuction is a terrific option if you are interested in transferring fat to another part of your body—such as the glutes, breasts, or back of the hands—through another procedure like a Brazilian Butt Lift. Not only does it liquify the fat, the VASER also allows us to remove the fat in smaller bits, making it much easier to transfer it to the new location.


Traditional liposuction is an excellent surgical method for removing fat but it does not tighten the sagging, loose skin left behind. Typically, you would need a surgical lift procedure to tighten your skin after surgery, which involves physically removing excess skin and stitching together the remaining skin over your liposuction-treated area to tighten it.

BodyTiteTM technology allows us to tighten your skin instantly. It works by safely heating the skin from the underside to 160 degrees using radiofrequency energy. This spike in temperature causes an instant 35 percent skin retraction. You instantly have tighter skin without the worry of drooping skin and tissue that comes with traditional liposuction. Your body will be immediately swimsuit-ready!
