Power assisted liposuction (PAL) is a new technique in which a motorized cannula removes body fat in a significantly safer, faster and less traumatic fashion than the traditional physician-held, wand-like device. PAL is performed using a special cannula which uses tiny, rapid vibrations to break up fat cells so that they can be suctioned out of the body. The more fat can be removed in a shorter period of time, which leads to enhanced results, a safer procedure, and faster recovery.
The vibrating tip used in PAL allows for safer liposuction because of its small, precise motions. Surgeons can target specific areas without damaging surrounding tissue.
MicroAire Power Assisted Microliposuction is performed using the tumescent liposuction technique in which an anesthetic liquid is injected into the treatment area for smooth fat transfer through the cannula and out of the body or in conjuction with Smartlipo Laser and Vaser Liposuction procedure.

A. In a multi-center study, it was found that power liposuction was more precise and took 40% less time to be performed, there was a 50% reduction in post-operative pain, and there was a 40% reduction in bruising and swelling which significantly sped up the recovery time.
A. No. The fees for Power Liposuction are the same as traditional liposuction.
A. Yes. The recovery time from Power Liposuction is almost half the time as the traditional procedure. Most people return to work two or three days after the procedure.
A. Because of the revolutionary approach to laser and PAL, our patients are completely awake during this surgery. It is performed under local tumescent anesthesia and you will actually be asked to stand up at the end of the surgery to be sure that the results are all symmetric! This is a much safer approach than the traditional procedure performed under general anesthesia.
A. There is about half the amount of bruising and swelling compared to the traditional approach and most patients recover from the surgery in about half the time.
A. Most of our patients take off the day after the procedure and then return to work 2 days from the procedure day. This is assuming that your job does not require any major physical exertion. If this is not the case, then we recommend several more days of rest before returning to work. Most people can resume their normal exercise regimen two weeks after the procedure.
