Power assisted liposuction uses equipments that allow for more defined and detailed fat removal. These devices generate fast, small vibrations that break up fat, which makes it easy for the fat to be suctioned out through the cannula. At Allure MedSpa, we use this method for many procedures.
In PAL (power assisted liposuction), the tip of the cannula is used to remove fat from the body. This tip vibrates rapidly. Vibration actually makes liposuction gentler on the body’s tissues because it loosens fat cells and allows them to be easily suctioned away. This specialized cannula needs smaller incisions for insertion and reduced healing time compared with other liposuction techniques. The vibrating tip used in PAL is a safer liposuction technique because of its small, accurate motions. Through power assisted liposuction, a high volume of fat can be extracted in a short time because of the vibration. Surgeons can target precise areas with minimum invasion of the surrounding tissues.
PAL or power assisted liposuction is one of the safest procedures it enables surgeons to get rid of both large and small fatty deposits quite quickly. There is little to no risk of bruising or excessive bleeding. The vibrating cannula helps lessen the risk of strain to the surrounding skin tissues, ensuing in less bruising and bleeding.
Recovery after power-assisted liposuction is like other liposuction procedures. You will have some soreness and swelling after your procedure. You will be advised to use compression garments to keep your new contour in shape. You should be able to recommence normal activities within a week. However strenuous activities are not recommended.
