Power Assisted Liposuction

Power Assisted Liposuction

The power-assisted liposuction (PAL) technique is highly effective in removing localized deposits of adipose (fat) tissue that are often responsible for undesirable appearance. The PAL method uses a hollow metal tube, called a cannula, that vibrates to loosen fat cells. This vibrating effect provides enough force to separate fat cells in the target areas without doing extensive damage to surrounding tissue. These fat cells are then suctioned out through the cannula which is attached to a vacuum source.

Power-assisted liposuction is considered to be a gentler approach than traditional liposuction techniques which require the surgeon to manually break up fat cells with vigorous physical effort. This technique tends to damage surrounding tissue and sometimes creates a significant blood loss. With PAL, there is typically less swelling and bruising which helps reduce the recovery time.

It is important to know that liposuction is indicated for body contouring and not as a means for weight loss. To find out more about power-assisted liposuction and to see if you are a good candidate for the procedure, please contact our St Peters, office to schedule a consultation.
