Power Liposuction


What is liposuction?

Liposuction is an effective spot reduction method that shapes and contours the body by removing stubborn fat tissues from specific areas such as the abdomen, waist, thighs, and buttocks.

In addition to these areas, the back, inner leg, inner knee, arm, and jowl are the areas where fat storage is seen the most in women and, therefore, the areas where liposuction is mostly used. In men, liposuction is mostly done on the abdomen, waist, and chest.


How is liposuction done?

During liposuction, thin cannulas are inserted through 2-4 mm incisions in the target area. Cannulas are moved back and forth to vacuum out the fat tissues. Depending on the patient's needs, various devices can be used to break down fat in liposuction. Power-assisted liposuction, ultrasound (Vaser liposuction), and laser liposuction are different devices widely and safely used in liposuction procedures.

Is it possible to lose weight fast with liposuction?

Liposuction is not a weight loss surgery. It shapes the body by removing the excess fat tissue underneath the skin, which then shrinks and reshapes itself to fit over this area. The better the skin elasticity, the better the result of the surgery will be.

Removing too much fat does not equal a good liposuction result. Body proportions and skin elasticity are evaluated to provide a smooth and natural appearance. A liposuction procedure that removes around five to six percent of body weight significantly reduces the risks of possible complications of the surgery. Liposuctions performed with modern devices minimize unwanted conditions such as bruising and edema. Bruising and edema also heal quickly after a liposuction procedure done properly.

Our surgeon will carefully evaluate your overall health and the possible risks of the procedure and inform you about whether you are a suitable candidate for liposuction and what kind of result you can expect.


What is power liposuction?

Power liposuction, power-assisted liposuction or PAL, is a safe and quick spot reduction method for removing fat with special cannulas that rapidly vibrate. The power-assisted liposuction technique uses a powerful vacuuming technology and very low frequency (infrasonic) sound waves to vibrate and rotate up to a thousand times per minute. Thus, it brings more effective results with much less effort.


How is power liposuction done?

While PAL is one of the next-generation liposuction techniques, small incisions are made to enter the target area, just like in traditional liposuction surgery. Cannulas used for vacuuming are placed on the hand apparatus used by the surgeon. The hand apparatus is connected to the device that vibrates the cannulas and the aspirator that removes the fat. The number of movements the cannulas will make can be adjusted according to how hard the targeted fat tissue is.

Frequently asked questions

What is the difference between power liposuction and traditional liposuction?

The traditional liposuction method removes fat tissues with the power of the aspiration device and physical manipulation. In power liposuction, the cannulas used automatically vibrate. This rapid movement offers a much safer and more effective procedure and faster and easier application.
