MicroAire Power-Assisted Liposuction PAL®
Liposuction is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures for all genders. Many options are available for removing stubborn fat deposits that are difficult to reduce through diet and exercise alone. One of the safest and most effective options for removing unwanted fat is MicroAire Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL®), available at Avance Plastic Surgery in Reno, NV.
What Is PAL?
Traditional liposuction uses suction and manual cannula movements to remove fatty deposits. Heat-assisted liposuction raises the temperature of the fat cells for easier removal, but there are risks of tissue burns. Power-assisted liposuction, or PAL, by MicroAire, uses a cannula that moves back and forth from the powered device to break up fat before suctioning out the fatty tissue.
The benefits of PAL over traditional or heat-assisted lipo can include:
- Quicker, more efficient procedure than traditional lipo
- Less invasive with smaller incisions than heat-assisted lipo
- Fewer complications, such as burns, bruising and seromas
- Less damage to the surrounding tissue, which can reduce post-procedure discomfort
MicroAire power-assisted liposuction can be used in all the same areas as heat or traditional liposuction. Common areas include the abdomen, upper arms, neck/chin, thighs and back.
Is PAL Right for You?
MicroAire PAL is an excellent procedure for individuals within 30% of their ideal weight who want to slim targeted fatty areas. Good candidates for PAL have firm skin or good elasticity – unlike some heat-assisted lipo, PAL does not stimulate collagen or contraction of the skin for tightening. PAL, like most liposuction procedures, requires recovery and downtime, including wearing compression garments to aid in healing.
