Power-assisted liposuction is an advanced lipo system that can remove fat from almost any area of the body without the extended downtime or discomfort associated with traditional liposuction. This procedure allows for high-precision fat removal for harder to reach areas, with a faster recovery.
What is power-assisted liposuction?
Traditional liposuction techniques can leave behind excess fat due to the lack of flexibility of the treatment device. With power-assisted liposuction (PAL), Dr. Leeman can more easily control and manipulate the amount of fat that is removed, allowing for precise and refined treatment results.
Power-assisted liposuction treatments can also be completed more quickly, resulting in a significantly shorter recovery period. Get the results of liposuction without the downtime with power-assisted liposuction at our Austin, TX luxury private clinic.

How does power-assisted liposuction work?
Power-assisted liposuction treatments use rapid, small vibrations to break up fat, loosening it and making it easier to remove. An anesthetic liquid is injected into the treatment area, making it easier for the power assisted liposuction device to both break up and remove excess fat, even in harder to reach body areas for ultimate flexibility and custom body sculpting.
What are the benefits of power-assisted liposuction?
This treatment offers a number of unique benefits when compared to traditional liposuction treatments:
- Power-assisted liposuction is faster than conventional liposuction.
- It results in a significantly shorter recovery time.
- Removes greater quantities of fat more quickly.
A study led by the Department of Dermatology at Tulane University’s Health Sciences Center revealed that power-assisted liposuction can remove up to 30 percent more fat when compared to traditional lipo methods.
Custom body sculpting with PAL
Power-assisted liposuction is particularly effective when treating areas that have been historically difficult to target with traditional liposuction methods, including the belly-button area, inner thighs, and male breasts.
What are the drawbacks of PAL?
This technique has many of the same downsides of a traditional liposuction treatment. The skin in the treatment area can be left loose and wrinkled after treatment depending on the extent of the fat removal. However, this often corrects itself over time, or can usually addressed with a variety of skin tightening methods.
Some patients also experience changes in the pigmentation of their skin near the treatment area after surgery.
