If you want to remove unwanted excess fat you may be a candidate for liposuction. Most of our patients say they diet and exercise but can’t get rid of that stubborn area. Now that it is summer and bathing suit season it’s the perfect time!

Dr. Lee uses Power Assisted Liposuction. PAL, or (power assisted liposuction), uses a special cannula which uses tiny, rapid vibrations to break up fat cells so they can be removed from the body. Doctors can remove more fat in a shorter period of time, which leads to enhanced results, a safer procedure, and faster recovery. PAL is performed using the tumescent liposuction technique, in which an anesthetic liquid is injected into the treatment area for a smooth fat transfer through the cannula and out of the body. In PAL (power assisted liposuction), the tip of the cannula vibrates to loosen fat cells which is gentler on the body’s tissues. The vibrating tip allows for a smaller incision with precise motions so the doctor does not need to use as much force.

Researchers found that 30 percent more fat was removed with PAL than with manual liposuction which makes PAL useful for treating areas that are notoriously difficult to sculpt. So have the dramatic results you are looking for this summer with minimal risk or downtime.
