About PAL®


What is PAL?

Power-assisted liposuction, known as PAL, is a minimally invasive body contouring procedure that eliminates unwanted fat from areas of the body resistant to diet and exercise.

The PAL system adds gentle vibration to the traditional liposuction procedure, which assists in breaking up targeted fat cells and allows for easier extraction. Easier extraction means a faster procedure, less bruising and a shorter recovery.[1]


Benefits of PAL

Compare PAL to Traditional Liposuction

Time speed icon

Shorter recovery time.[1]

First aid or cross icon

Less bruising, swelling and trauma.[1]

Safe shield icon

Increased patient comfort and improved safety.

Fire icon

PAL is not heat based, so patient burns are not a concern.

Precision crosshairs icon

Improved surgeon precision for body sculpting and contouring.[1]

Fat molecules icon

Greater cell viability for autologous fat grafting and reinjection.[2][3][4]

Power-Assisted Liposuction is a more effective and safer way to eliminate unwanted deposits of fat from large or small areas, and allows patients to achieve dramatically improved results with a faster recovery than ordinary liposuction.
