Your Liposuction PAL

If you’re considering liposuction in Seattle, you have many new options. One of the techniques you might have heard about is power-assisted liposuction, also known as PAL. This popular method involves injecting an anesthetic liquid into the treatment area, then using a vibrating tube called a “cannula” to remove unwanted fat cells. Though I often get better results with a manual hand syringe lipo technique, I may use PAL liposuction to help my patients achieve dramatic aesthetic results.

Advantages of Power-Assisted Liposuction

  • The back and forth motion can break up fat easily, precisely, and gently.
  • Fat can be removed quickly for a shorter procedure and recovery period.
  • I can precisely target specific areas of fat while avoiding damage to surrounding tissue.

If I am using a manual liposuction technique, I often prefer to use a spatula cannula to smooth out any possible irregularities and minimize any skin contour defects after surgery. The type of liposuction method I will use for a particular patient really depends on the patient’s existing anatomy, areas treated, and desired results.
