The Technology for body sculpting

Power assisted liposuction (PAL) is an important technology for body sculpting. It is an excellent method for removing unwanted fatty bulges and creating more attractive body contours. Because Los Angeles power assisted liposuction patients have made this one of the most popular procedures in Southern California, the advantages of PAL are on the minds of many people considering body contouring. Power assisted liposuction refers to a new technology in which the tip of the suction tube vibrates at a rapid speed. This vibration loosens the fat cells during liposuction so that they may be suctioned away gently with less trauma to the surrounding tissues. PAL is performed using the tumescent technique, which involves infusing large volumes of saline, local anesthesia and adrenaline. This maximizes the effectiveness of the fat removal and patient comfort, and it helps to minimize bruising.

PAL has several important advantages over older techniques such as ultrasonic liposuction (UAL) and suction-assisted liposuction (SAL). These benefits include increased safety, decreased anesthesia time, less bruising, faster recovery, increased efficacy and greater precision. Our surgeons have seen firsthand that Los Angeles power assisted liposuction is an effective and safer way to eliminate unwanted deposits of fat. Advantages include:

  • Improved Safety
  • Shorter Procedure
  • Less Bruising and Swelling
  • Faster Recovery
  • Less Discomfort
  • Smaller Incisions
  • Greater Precision

In a research study evaluating the results of over 400 power assisted liposuction patients in Los Angeles, it was found that the incidence of complications was less than half the rate in a similar group who underwent ultrasound-assisted liposuction. Because PAL is more efficient, the length of time for each procedure has been reduced. Shorter operations are safer. Because the low energy, vibrating tip does not harm surrounding tissue, patients have less bruising and swelling. This results in a faster recovery from surgery.
