Power-Assisted Liposuction is the most widely used and preferred alternative to manual liposuction.[1]

After the procedure, you can expect some light bruising and swelling. Your surgeon will most likely recommend that you wear a compression garment to assist with the healing process.


Possible Risks

Fortunately, significant complications from liposuction surgery are infrequent. Liposuction surgery is one of the two most common procedures performed by plastic surgeons each year. Most often, this surgery is performed without any major complications.[2]

Each year thousands of patients successfully undergo PAL surgery to remove unwanted fat, however all surgical procedures carry some degree of risk. It is important to ask your surgeon to review these risks with you.
