When am I suitable for liposuction?
Liposuction surgery can be used to treat excess fat in the stomach, buttocks, hips, love handles, saddle bags, thighs, calves, ankles, back, arms, neck and breasts (including male gynecomies or breast reduction). Liposuction is equally effective in men and women.
Your doctor is best suited to determine whether you are a candidate for Power Assisted Liposuction.
But there are a few clues that can help you decide:
- You have “fat that can withstand diets” and does not disappear with diet or exercise.
- You have fat accumulation that are disproportionate to the rest of your body.
- You have fat deposits in areas with minimal amounts of excess skin and good skin elasticity
PAL can be performed as part of a tummy tuck procedure (tummy tuck) or a panniculectomy procedure (removal of drooping fat and skin, usually after massive weight loss or bariatric surgery).
Strength-supported liposuction can be performed in overweight patients who want to remove large amounts of fat or in patients who are simply looking for definition, contours and body compression.
For patients looking for body contours and definition, PAL is used to remove the thin subcutaneous fat layer. Your surgeon can use PAL to perform demanding body scrambling on many parts of the body. PAL allows the surgeon to exert precise control, which can lead to better results.
