Struggling to lose areas of stubborn fat that won’t respond to diet and exercise? SRMC Plastic Surgery offers minimally-invasive liposuction as a body contouring technique that slims and tones targeted areas by removing unwanted fat. Board-Certified Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon Linda Camp, M.D., FACS, performs the innovative VASER® liposuction at SRMC Plastic Surgery as a cosmetic procedure, with less recovery time than traditional liposuction.
VASER® liposuction can be used to remove excess fat from various parts of the body, including the abdomen, chest, waist, back, hips, thighs and buttocks. It is also gentle enough to treat more delicate areas, such as the arms, neck and chin.
VASER® uses advanced ultrasound technology to break down unwanted fat deposits, so they can be more easily removed through a gentle suction process. Unlike conventional liposuction, VASER® precisely targets fat cells without damaging the surrounding healthy tissues, resulting in less pain, a faster recovery and smoother body shape.
In addition to its cosmetic benefits, VASER® liposuction can also be used as an option for obtaining fat from one area of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs or buttocks; and using it to reconstruct the breast following surgery for the treatment of breast cancer. Because the VASER® uses a gentle fat removal technique, the extracted fat is higher quality and re-injects more easily and smoothly into the breast area than fat harvested using traditional liposuction.

Cosmetic surgery is performed to enhance or change a healthy, normal, functioning part of the body to improve appearance or self-esteem. Because cosmetic surgery is an elective procedure, the cost is typically not covered by most health insurance plans.
Reconstructive surgery is performed to correct a physical abnormality caused by a birth defect, injury or medical condition; to improve physical function or achieve a more normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is often covered by health insurance plans, though the level of coverage may vary by procedure.
Recovery time depends on the procedure, and can range anywhere from a few days to weeks or even months. It’s important to note that every patient responds to pain differently, and Dr. Camp will prescribe the appropriate pain medications to help minimize your discomfort. You should follow the post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Camp to allow your body time to heal and to achieve optimal results.
The long-term results of cosmetic surgery depend on the type of procedure performed, your age and your overall health. You should discuss your expectations for the outcome of your procedure during your pre-surgical consultation with Dr. Camp.
If you are considering cosmetic surgery, it’s important to be informed about the safety of your procedure and the expected results. Thousands of people undergo cosmetic surgery each year without complications. However, no surgical procedure is risk-free.
To reduce the risk of complications, you should inform Dr. Camp of your complete medical history, including any medications you take, prior to scheduling cosmetic surgery.
For enhanced safety, our patients can be assured that:
You should contact your insurance provider to verify the details of your plan’s coverage prior to your procedure. Cosmetic surgery is typically not covered by health insurance plans because it is elective. Many reconstructive procedures are covered by health insurance, although the level of coverage may vary.
If the cost of your cosmetic procedure is not covered by your insurance plan, SRMC Plastic Surgery may offer some financing options. Please contact our office at 330-332-7383 for more information.
