Power Assisted Liposuction

Toronto liposuction surgeon Dr. Robert Backstein uses Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL), a type of liposuction device that makes it simpler for surgeons to remove fat from the body. The process is conducted using a cannula, which breaks up fat cells using tiny and rapid vibrations. This procedure is safe, leads to enhanced results, and involves a quick recovery.

Process of PAL

PAL is carried out using a technique called tumescent liposuction, in which an anesthetic liquid is injected, allowing the fat to smoothly transfer  through the cannula and out of the body. The tip of the cannula vibrates rapidly, loosening fat cells and allowing for an easier suction. This has a gentle impact on the body’s tissues and results in a safe liposuction due to the small and  precise motions. Surgeons are able to target a specific area without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Benefits of PAL

The conducted research at The Department of Dermatology at Tulane University Health Sciences Center discovered that as opposed to manual liposuction, an increased 30 percent of fat was removed using PAL, and there was evidence of a reduction in bruising and duration of recovery. PAL is useful for treating areas that are difficult to sculpt, including the inner thighs, belly button area, and male breasts. With PAL, patients are not as greatly exposed to the complications and safety risks associated with manual liposuction. Similar to most surgical procedures, PAL’s are accompanied by some risks. Selecting an experienced surgeon such as Dr. R. Backstein can reduce the chances of acquiring these risks.
