Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) allows for precise and rapid removal of fat from the body. This is an important technology for body sculpting and an excellent method for permanently removing unwanted fatty bulges and creating more attractive body contours.
Power-assisted liposuction is performed in conjunction with traditional liposuction. During this procedure, the area to be treated is infused with a tumescent which is a high quality, sterile mixture of local anesthetic and a vasoconstrictor to reduce pain and bleeding during surgery.
The advantages of Power Assisted Liposuction
- Smaller Incision – the cannula used in this procedure is smaller in diameter
- Greater Precision – the thinness of the cannula allows Dr. Accetta to target areas more precisely
- Faster Recovery – patients who have this procedure often report faster recovery than patients who had traditional liposuction
- More Efficient – Dr. Accetta is able to remove up to 30% more fat from patients compared to traditional liposuction
Power-assisted liposuction is a major advance in aesthetic surgery. The significant improvements in safety and precision are making lipoplasty even more attractive for patients who are considering body sculpting.
