Power Assisted Liposuction

Liposuction in NY can efficiently remove fat from multiple areas of the body. Past liposuction procedures involved substantial bruising, pain, and long recovery times for patients looking to reduce the appearance of fat deposits, due to larger incisions and less-advanced cannulas. Power assisted liposuction (PAL) is an advanced liposuction technique that uses innovative technology to remove fat quickly and with less trauma than previous lipo options, thanks to a specialized oscillating cannula. This cannula uses rapid vibrations to break up fat cells for precise and effective suctioning. As a result, power assisted lipo can break apart dense collections of fat cells to achieve large-volume fat reduction in a shorter period of time than other liposuction procedures. The power assisted lipo cannula can also target smaller areas of the body, providing detailed body sculpting results to shape troublesome areas. Power assisted liposuction can result in quicker procedure length.

How Does Power Assisted Liposuction Work?

Power assisted liposuction uses an oscillating cannula powered by a specialized electrical device. This cannula moves through fat with power, producing vibrations that allow for more effective fat removal. As the cannula breaks up fat cells at high speed, these cells become easier to suction from the body. Power assisted lipo is especially useful when targeting areas of dense tissue, including the back and chest, as the power generated from the oscillating cannula can efficiently break down clusters of fat cells. These cells are then gently suctioned from the body for long-lasting fat reduction results. Once removed, fat cells cannot re-enter the body. However, patients should maintain a healthy lifestyle for optimal results.

Can Power Assisted Liposuction Be Used Alongside Other Procedures?

Yes. Power assisted liposuction can be used alongside other liposuction procedures to provide optimal results, including VASER® LipoSelection, SmartLipo®, SculpSure™, tumescent liposuction, and super wet liposuction. Additionally, power assisted lipo can complement other facial rejuvenation and body contouring techniques. Dr. Levine will discuss with you which procedures may best enhance your power assisted liposuction results.

Am I An Ideal Candidate For Power Assisted Liposuction Treatment?

Power assisted liposuction is not meant to be a weight loss technique. Patients should be relatively close to their normal body weight when considering power assisted liposuction. Those looking to add natural-looking definition to their physique and improve contours are candidates for power assisted lipo. Moreover, if you are struggling to lose troublesome layers of fat despite dieting and exercise, power assisted liposuction may be an ideal procedure for you. Dr. Levine will discuss whether power assisted liposuction is right for you during your consultation at our New York City office.

What Type Of Anesthesia Is Involved During My Power Assisted Liposuction Procedure?

Patients require either local, twilight, or general anesthesia, depending on the specifics of your power assisted liposuction procedure. Dr. Levine will discuss which form of anesthesia is ideal for your power assisted lipo treatment during your consultation at our New York office.

What Can I Expect After Undergoing Power Assisted Liposuction In NY?

Power assisted liposuction recovery will vary, depending on your individual procedure. However, patients usually experience mild swelling and bruising in the weeks following power assisted lipo. These effects will typically subside after a few weeks of treatment. Patients usually return to work within one week of undergoing power assisted liposuction, depending on the area(s) being treated. Additional recovery time may be necessary to return to certain daily activities, including exercise.

What Kind Of Power Assisted Liposuction Results Can I Expect?

Power assisted liposuction can yield substantial, long-lasting body contouring results. Undergoing liposuction in NY can remove fat from multiple areas of the body to achieve a natural-looking, firmer appearance. The power assisted liposuction machine can enhance curves and add shape to the body. Additionally, a healthy lifestyle can help maintain your power assisted lipo results. Frequent exercise and careful dieting can enhance your newfound results and reduce the chance of excess weight gain.

How Can I Maximize My Power Assisted Liposuction Results?

In order to maximize your power assisted liposuction results, it is important to follow all pre and post-operative instructions provided by Dr. Levine.

Pre-Care
Certain products and supplements should be avoided in the weeks prior to your power assisted liposuction procedure, unless medically necessary. By doing so, patients minimize their risk of bruising and swelling. Blood-thinners and medications that contain ibuprofen or aspirin should be avoided. Patients should also refrain from taking multivitamins and herbal supplements.

Post-Procedure
Patients may be recommended to wear a compression garment after undergoing power assisted liposuction. This garment assists your recovery in the weeks following your procedure by reducing swelling and improving skin tightening. Patients can wear their compression garment while going about their day-to-day routine. Additionally, lymphatic massage may be recommended to promote healing and enhance the appearance of skin around the treatment area. Lymphatic massage can improve your body’s immunity after liposuction, enhance your circulation, and result in smooth, glowing skin.
Certain medications, including Tylenol, Bromelain, and Arnica Montana, may be recommended to alleviate pain or discomfort post-procedure. For more details regarding our liposuction aftercare suggestions, click here.
