Excess fat on your abdomen, back, arms, and other areas can be unresponsive to even the most dedicated diet and exercise. 

Dr. Bruce Hermann in Denton, TX, can perform liposuction to eliminate stubborn fat tissue. With a healthy lifestyle, your results could last for years.

What makes liposuction such a popular cosmetic procedure among our patients?

What Is Liposuction?

Liposuction is a cosmetic fat removal surgery. During the procedure, a thin metal tube called a cannula is inserted into the body through small, strategically placed incisions. A plastic surgeon can target and extract select fat cells, suctioning them out of the patient's body. Thanks to liposuction, plastic surgeons can remove unwanted fatty tissue and give patients a slimmer frame.

The Gold Standard

Dr. Hermann can help you achieve the slim figure you desire with liposuction surgery. While there are less invasive alternatives available to extract stubborn fat cells, this targeted fat removal procedure has a long record of effectiveness. Dr. Hermann has ample experience in body sculpting and contouring and can help you achieve long-lasting, natural-looking results.

Virtually Any Area Can Be Treated with Liposuction

  • Abdomen 
  • Flanks (love handles)
  • Outer thighs (saddlebags)
  • Inner thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Face
  • Neck
  • Upper arms
  • Axilla (armpits)
  • Knees
  • Calves

It is important to note that although the liposuction procedure can reduce fat cells, the surgery cannot remove excess skin. If excess skin is one of your concerns, a tummy tuck or other body contouring option may be a better choice.

Can Liposuction Help with Weight Management?


While patients will lose a few pounds of excess fat, we want to reiterate that liposuction should not be used for weight management or as a replacement for weight loss.

Candidacy Checklist for Liposuction Surgery

Good Skin Elasticity

In order to achieve optimal results, you should not have large amounts of excess skin. The quality of your skin may or may not be a limitation to liposuction surgery.

Close to Goal Weight 

Liposuction is not a weight loss procedure. It is used as an effective way to improve the contours of your body. If you are significantly overweight, then liposuction surgery might not be the best option for you.

Committed to Healthy Lifestyle 

In order to maintain the results of your cosmetic surgery, you will need to be committed to a healthy diet and exercise routine after your procedure. 

In Good Overall Health

As with any other surgical procedure, you will need to be in good overall health to undergo liposuction surgery.

Our Minimally Invasive Techniques Mean Safe Results & Discreet Scarring

Negative outcomes from liposuction are usually the result of trying to do too much at one time.

Dr. Hermann is a highly trained and very conservative surgeon who errs on the side of caution and holds your safety in high regard. You can rest assured that he will not recommend or perform any surgery that would put you at significant risk.

Depending on your needs and goals, he may recommend an even less invasive form of the procedure, BodyTite, a type of radiofrequency-assisted liposuction.

This surgery has been life changing for me and help me gain my confidence back. My only regret is not finding Dr.Hermann sooner!"

The Typical Timeline for Liposuction Surgery Patients

What can you expect from start to finish?


First, you will see Dr. Hermann at his Denton plastic surgery office. During your consultation, you will discuss your cosmetic concerns, desired goals, and budget for treatment.


Once you have decided together with Dr. Hermann that your expectations are realistic and that you are a good candidate for the procedure, he will mark the areas you want to reduce and estimate the total amount of fat to be removed.


On the day of your procedure, you will be put under general anesthesia for your comfort. This ensures you are unconscious throughout the surgery. 


Dr. Hermann will make a few very small incisions and then inject a solution into the fat which minimizes bleeding and numbs the area so that your pain after surgery is decreased.

Fat Removal 

He will then carefully suction out the excess fat cells using hollow metal rods called cannulas.


After the procedure is complete, you will be placed in a compression garment which you will wear for a few weeks. You will go home the same day as your surgery.

What to Expect After Surgery

What role do you play in a healthy recovery?

Liposuction is not an overly painful procedure, but you will have some discomfort in the days immediately following your surgery. However, your pain should quickly improve. 

Bruising and swelling are common after liposuction. In fact, swelling is fairly constant for about two weeks, but then begins to resolve. The bruising should resolve in two to three weeks. By six weeks after your surgery, the swelling should have gone down to a level where you can really start to see the results of the fat removal. It can take two to three months for all swelling to resolve. 

At North Texas Breast & Plastic Surgery Center in Denton, Dr. Hermann encourages you to return to your daily activities very quickly after surgery, with the exception of exercise or working out, which he asks that you refrain from for a period of four weeks to prevent the risk of post-operative bleeding.

Understanding Potential Risks

Face mask for anesthesia

Are you worried about pain or complications? Liposuction surgery is a very safe procedure.

Common Surgical Risks

The general risks of any surgery, such as bleeding, infection, or abnormal scarring, are possible, but these only occur in a very small percentage of cases. Abnormal contouring of the skin is a risk specific to liposuction surgery that may occur in a very small percentage of liposuction procedures.

Putting Patients at Ease

For your added comfort and peace of mind during the procedure, Dr. Hermann will place you under general anesthesia. This deep form of sedation combined with local anesthesia to manage pain allows you to remain completely unconscious during your surgery.

Are Liposuction Scars Noticeable?


Scars are unavoidable after any plastic surgery, but the scarring from liposuction is minimal. The scars are usually 1 cm or smaller, and will fade with time. If you do experience visible scarring, we can go over different scar management options.

Liposuction FAQs

How does liposuction work?

Your body has two layers of fat underneath your skin. There is a superficial layer which has a fairly even thickness over the body, and a deep layer where excess fat can be deposited, creating bulges. These deep layer bulges are what cause the unwanted changes in your body contour. Liposuction is used to reduce the amount of fat in the deep layer to restore your body contour to a more cosmetically pleasing shape.

What is tumescent liposuction?

Tumescent liposuction is a surgical technique that involves the injection of a solution into the treatment area. This solution contains local anesthetic and epinephrine. The solution causes the fat cells to swell and become firm, making them easier to remove. The solution also minimizes discomfort, lessens blood loss during the procedure, and reduces post-operative bruising and swelling.

Is liposuction surgery a good weight loss option?

No. The procedure is intended to target pockets of excess fat with a cannula, not to reduce your body mass per se. If you want to lose weight, we can discuss other methods that are ideal for those goals.

What are the effects of liposuction on the skin?

Liposuction in and of itself should not directly affect your skin, however, removing a significant amount of fat underneath the skin can sometimes cause the skin to be looser. The amount of looseness or laxity of the skin is affected by two factors: the amount of fat removed and the elastic properties of your skin. The elasticity of your skin decreases with age, becoming significantly decreased by ages 45-50. In your consultation at our Denton, TX, plastic surgery office, Dr. Hermann will discuss how liposuction will affect your overlying skin and fat loss.

How does liposuction surgery compare to other fat loss techniques I have heard about?

It seems that new ways to reduce fat in the body such as injections, freezing the fat, etc., are coming onto the scene all the time, and Dr. Hermann is asked about these procedures quite frequently. The one thing to remember is that there is a reason that plastic surgeons as a whole do not embrace these new techniques. Although some may actually have some effectiveness in reducing unwanted fat, the problem with these techniques is their lack of reliability in giving consistent results, and many of them can leave a patient with abnormal contouring of their body and/or skin.

Plastic surgeons, who are accepted as the experts on improving the appearance of the body, know that liposuction remains the gold standard for safe and consistent improvement of excess fat, and therefore continue to use it over the newer techniques with less consistent results.
