What is Power Assisted Liposuction?
Power assisted liposuction is a technique that Dr. Baker recommends for removing pockets of stubborn fat from troublesome areas of the body, such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, and flanks. A small tube is inserted through a freckle sized hole and fat is removed without any cutting of your skin. RF-PAL is a complementary technique that uses radiofrequency energy to tighten the skin while melting fat so it can be suctioned out of the area with less tissue trauma compared to other techniques. This not only reduces your downtime, but also allows for more precise contouring of the area. Dr. Baker discusses suitability and applicability to your unique case at your consultation. A highly successful algorithm is used to determine what fat should be removed, providing additional peace of mind throughout the process.

Am I a Candidate for Power Assisted Liposuction?
Lipo is an ideal procedure for men and women who have areas of stubborn fat that does not respond to diet and exercise. Best results are achieved when patients are within 25 pounds of their ideal weight, but power assisted liposuction can improve a wide range of body types. Post-pregnancy, Dr. Baker suggests giving your body 6 months after delivery to recover, but you are able to have a procedure within 3 months of delivery, with some limitations. Dr. Baker may also recommend that you wait until after you are done having children before having a lipo procedure.
How is Power Assisted Liposuction Performed?
Unlike the liposuction of 10-15 years ago, today’s liposuction technology allows your surgeon to remove fat with minimal downtime or discomfort afterwards. Following in our commitment at The Retreat Restorative & Aesthetics to offer cutting edge technology at competitive pricing, we are proud to provide power assisted liposuction (PAL) and radio frequency power assisted liposuction (RF-PAL). The benefit of this is multifold. We are able to use smaller instruments than would be normally utilized due to the vibration and separation of fat cells provided by the PAL handpiece. This in turn provides for shorter healing times, less swelling and less trauma to tissues. It also allows us to be more aggressive with fat removal than you could be with traditional liposuction instruments. It is not uncommon for patients to return to work within 1-2 days of their PAL/RF-PAL procedure.
What is Recovery Like After Power Assisted?
Power assisted liposuction post-op requires significantly less downtime and recovery than invasive surgical procedures. Expect to have swelling, tenderness, and bruising, but minimal interruption to your normal activities. Depending on the size of the area, healing can take several weeks or longer. Dr. Baker explains your power assisted liposuction post op care during the consultation, as well as prior to your returning home after the treatment.
How Long Do the Results of Power Assisted Last?
The results that you see in power assisted liposuction before and after pics show the outcomes of fat removal. The procedure removes fat that you have now and your lifestyle, aging process, and genetics are the contributing factors that determine how long the results will last. Living a healthy, active lifestyle is the best way to maintain the results seen in power assisted liposuction before and after thighs, abdomen, arms, and other pictures.
