Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) New York City
Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL): powered assisted liposuction augments other liposuction procedures.
The moving cannula is similar to the motion of an electric toothbrush. The cannula moves rapidly with a short excursion. As with all modalities, the cannula is attached to the aspirator (vacuum pump). There is a small similarity to the ultrasound liposuction technique, in that the vibrating cannula enables the surgeon to remove the fat with less mechanical work and force. This enables us to perform the procedure more efficiently, and enables us to obtain the best and smoothest result.
For most patients, Dr. Sherman combines power assisted liposuction with modest amounts of ultrasound assisted liposuction, followed by traditional feathering with manual cannula liposuction to achieve the best result.
