Power Assisted Liposuction – PAL

Fat removal body contouring

What is liposuction?

Liposuction is a surgical procedure that removes unwanted fat cells from different areas of the body that are resistant to diet and exercise. With the help of a metal steel tube (cannula), fatty deposits can be suctioned out of the male or female body, such as the lower abdomen, the upper abdomen, flanks or love handles, on the outer thighs and inner thighs as well as on the arms, the bra line, the back, lower back and male breast reduction gynecomastia.

Who are good candidates for fat removal?

  • for all male and female looking for slim line surgery
  • people with stubborn fat areas
  • when the exercise is not an option

What is Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL)?

Using traditional methods of liposuction requires the surgeon to manually move the cannula through the parts of the body which can be physically demanding and sometimes not a hundred percent effective. The Power Assisted Liposuction is an improved method where rapid vibrations at the tip of the cannula break up fat cells so the cannula moves through the tissue with more ease and the fat can be removed with less effort and higher precision. This makes the procedure more efficient and can be performed in less time which makes it safer as the risk of infections is minimized. Compared to other liposuction method, this technique helps remove both subcutaneous fat and deeper fat, i.e. visceral fat.

As the Tumescent Liposuction is overall a more gentle method, it passes through tissue without damaging micro-vessels and thus leaving the fat cells intact. This cell viability makes it possible to use the fat cells for fat grafting to other parts of the body and enhance areas that may have lost volume over time.

Will body contouring by PAL be suitable for me?

Like other methods of body contouring liposuction, the Power Assisted Liposuction is not a means to cure obesity but is a technique for body contouring of the lower and upper abdomen, the inner and outer thighs, the hips, the buttocks, the arms, as well as the back, the lower back and male chest.

In general, Power Assisted Liposuction can be performed on overweight patients as well as patients who are simply seeking definition and body contouring. Even with diet and exercise, many people suffer from fat deposits that will simply not go away or are out of proportion to the rest of the body.

Can you expect a HiDef or six pack abdomen?

The experienced plastic surgeon has experience in Hi- Def and six pack liposuction – body contouring surgery.  However, each individual person comes in a different shape and size, a suitable candidate for  Six Pack Hi-definition Liposuction, should be in physically good shape.

How is PAL performed?

In general, intravenous sedation sometimes called twilight light sedation is sufficient before fat removal by PAL surgery, although in some cases general anesthesia may be required. Power Assisted Liposuction is carried out in conjunction with the tumescent liposuction technique. After sedation, the surgeon will perform a tumescent infiltration by injecting a special solution of sterile saline, a local anesthetic, mostly lidocaine,  and a vasoconstrictor such as epinephrine into the fat that is to be liposuctioned. This numbs the tissue and constricts the blood vessels to reduce bleeding. Moreover, the solution is absorbed by the fat cells and causes them to swell which makes them easier to remove.

It takes about 15 to 20 minutes for the solution to be absorbed by the fat cells. Then, tiny incisions will be made in areas of the body that are not immediately obvious such as natural skin folds and creases. The surgeon will then insert the cannula into these incisions to suction the fat by repeated entries of the cannula into the tissue.

The time for completion of the procedure varies according to the amount of fatty tissue that is removed. For example, a procedure on an athletic person who requires body sculpting in only a few areas will take less time than a liposuction that is performed on an overweight person which can last up to several hours.

What should I do to prepare for surgery?

Above all, you should consult your physician who will provide you with pre-operative instructions. Medications that increase the risk of bleeding need to be discontinued about three weeks before undergoing liposuction. These include aspirin and supplements such as Vitamin E and fish oil.
Information on how to get ready for surgery.

How do I recover from liposuction?

In the first five days after Power Assisted Liposuction, it is recommended to rest. You will be encouraged to then progressively increase your activities, resume light work after about five days and normal exercise within two to four weeks.

Swelling and bruises may occur directly after the procedure but will resolve over the course of a few weeks. To assist the skin in naturally reattaching to the underlying muscle, compression garments should be worn for a few weeks after the procedure.

When will I see results?

While some patients note immediate results after the procedure, it normally takes up to four to six weeks until the final result is fully visible.

Sharon from USA – Knee replacement surgery

I needed a knee replacement which I couldn’t afford in California. I was so lucky to find International Medical Health Solutions who arranged an affordable surgery for me in Thailand. They took care of me from my arrival until my departure, organised the operation in a GSI accredited hospital with a USA certified orthopaedic specialist. On top of that, I saved almost 75%. The service was excellent. Thank you!
