Sometimes, it doesn’t matter how much you diet or how much you exercise – you can’t rid yourself of the fat pockets on your stomach, hips, thighs, and buttocks. Unfortunately, heredity may be working against you and you may not be able to remove certain areas of fat on your own. You can address these problem areas with liposuction from Dr. Robert Najera, a skilled liposuction and plastic surgeon serving the Frisco, Plano, Allen, McKinney and surrounding areas. Liposuction is a procedure where small incisions are made on the areas receiving treatment. Then, a specialized tool is inserted to remove the fat cells. After a short recovery period, you’ll have the body shape you’ve worked so hard to attain.

"Gifted Dr. Najera and his stellar team! - Having been inspired by the extensive and high quality online reviews of Dr. Najera's work, I decided to reach out to his team from my base in London, UK, and can honestly say that from the very outset, I have received nothing but the highest level of care and professionalism from the doctor and his staff. Needless to say, it was a substantial emotional and financial investment for me to travel all the way from the UK to Texas for my tummy tuck, lipo and scar revision surgery, and so am delighted to share that my confidence was well placed and that only 10 days post op, I am SUPER HAPPY with the results. Highly personable and skilled, Dr. Najera put me at ease from the very first Skype consultation and both Jessica and Brenda couldn't have done more for me during my stay. Thanks again for all - you are truly fabulous!"- S.N. / RealSelf / Sep 25, 2019
If you are at a healthy weight, but you still have pockets of fat that won’t disappear, then liposuction with VASER Lipo may help. VASER Lipo can be used to treat a wide variety of areas, including the abdomen, thighs, knees, buttocks, hips, arms, male and female breasts, love handles, and more – almost any part of the body can undergo treatment with VASER Lipo. Liposuction is not meant for weight loss and it is recommended that no more than 10 pounds of fat be removed during the procedure.
About the Surgery
Surgical tumescent liposuction is the traditional liposuction approach used for patients desiring immediate and dramatic results. This approach uses a device known as a cannula that is inserted through the skin, which removes fat cells. A solution containing local anesthetic and tumescent fluid is introduced beneath the area of concern to help minimize bleeding, bruising and overall patient discomfort. Dr. Najera removes the fat by using a motor to help control how much fat is removed and at what speed. Fat removal can range from several ounces to a few pounds.
Like traditional liposuction, VASER Lipo can help remove fat from areas that diet and exercise have little to no effect on. What sets VASER Lipo apart is its ability to achieve more precise results while protecting sensitive tissues, such as nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. VASER Lipo uses ultrasound energy to break apart fat for removal, yielding a more precise outcome and resulting in less bruising around the treatment area. Once liposuction treatment and recovery have been completed, a healthy and active lifestyle will help you retain your slimmer silhouette. Often, patients see results immediately, with peak results occurring at around 3-6 months after surgery.
