Power assisted liposuction
Liposuction is such a famous cosmetic surgery procedure that uses a suction machine for removing fat from the body. But did you know that there are different types of liposuction machine that are being used to accomplish the procedure and achieve the same goal?
Here are some:
- Laser assist liposuction
- water assist liposuction
- traditional liposuction
- power assisted liposuction
As a surgeon, I usually perform the procedure of fat removal using the method of power-assisted liposuction.
Power-assist liposuction is a cosmetic technology that uses a hollow cannula, just like what is being used in a traditional liposuction machine. The handle provides the power to the hollow cannula. It is also responsible for the back and forth movement of the camera.
But what I particularly love about using this method is that it can remove a greater amount of time in lesser time. It is also proven to be a more efficient way of de-bulking regions with more significant soft tissue, in such a non-destructive way. By setting the machine in low power, the fat is preserved in the best way possible before being injected into specific areas that require augmentation and contouring. Power-assist liposuction technology also provides a way to minimize surgeon fatigue and better results.
