Power-Assisted Liposuction

Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL): A type of liposuction that uses a motorized cannula (thin tube) to loosen and suction out fat deposits. The power assistance makes the procedure more efficient and easier for the surgeon, potentially leading to smoother results.

Pros: More precise fat removal, potentially shorter procedure time, may be easier on the surgeon’s hands.

Cons: May increase risk of bruising and swelling compared to traditional liposuction.

Alternatives: Traditional liposuction, laser-assisted liposuction.

Recovery: Similar to traditional liposuction, typically involving several days of rest and compression garments for several weeks.

Disclaimer: Liposuction is a surgical procedure with risks, discuss with a board-certified plastic surgeon to determine if it’s right for you.
