Power Up: The Basics of Power Assisted Lipoplasty
Having excess, stubborn fat on your body is the last thing you want but it’s something that almost everyone has. Unless you have 0% body fat, you more than likely have one or more areas of your body that a fat that you wish you could get rid of. Even though we can't make all your fat go away, we can help you get rid of that fat that’s driving you crazy— and, just in time for summer. Even though we have plenty of body contouring procedures for you to choose from, let's focus on one of them today: power assisted lipoplasty.
What’s Power Assisted Lipoplasty?
Similar to liposuction, power assisted lipoplasty is a body contouring procedure that's designed to help patients, like you, target unwanted fat that they can’t get rid of with diet and exercise alone. Rather than just using a traditional cannula to remove the excess fat, though, we use a special cannula that produces vibrations that break up the fat in the process. The rapid vibrations help us to remove fat faster and gentler than with the traditional method.
What Are the Benefits?
You may think that pulsating vibrations won’t do a lot in getting rid of fat, but we are here to tell you that this treatment is very effective. In fact, one of the main reasons why we recommend this treatment to patients is that it’s not only fast, but it’s a lot more gentle than traditional liposuction. Specifically, during this procedure there is less trauma caused to the surrounding tissues which makes recovery a lot faster and makes the procedure a lot less invasive as well.
Am I a Good Candidate?
During your initial consultation, we will be able to determine whether or not this procedure is right for you. However, power assisted liposuction is traditionally ideal at helping remove fat from the waist, hips, buttocks, arms, thighs, neck, chin, and abdomen. Plus, it’s effective at treating both small pockets of fat in hard to reach locations, and large deposits of fat.
With summer just around the corner, there is no better time than now to hop on the body contouring train. To learn more about power assisted lipoplasty, contact us at our Southampton office: 516.364.4200.
