What is PAL Liposculpture?

The PAL liposculpture (Power Assisted Liposuction) is a treatment for lipedema that can put an end to the heaviness, he excess fat and the different ways that this disease affects people who suffer from it.

How is the operation carried out?

PAL liposculpture uses a special cannula that uses the tumescent system, in which a liquid is injected that acts as anesthetic so that the patient does not feel anything during the intervention. In this way, it is introduced into the parts where you want eliminate fat. Subsequently, thanks to the cannula's own vibration, liposuction is easier for the patient since releases fat more easily.

The cannula has a smaller size so the incisions made to insert it are smaller. This makes it possible for the incisions, once they have healed, to pass totally unnoticed due to its small size.

Additionally, since the size of the incisions is smaller, the recovery time is less.

It should be noted that normal liposuction or liposculpture are not treatments for lipedema because fatty tissue is different.

This is what the PAL technique that facilitates the elimination of fatty tissue affected by lipedema. And with the operating system that it has, the surgeon has certain facilities to eliminate the desired fat. This translates into safety and precision for the patient.

For the surgeon, one of the advantages it has is that it can work without damaging the tissue near the fat that you want to extract. Also, the vibration of the cannula helps shed adipose tissue so that it is absorbed by the cannula itself.

In the postoperative period it also reflects results, since, in the most complicated areas such as the thighs, or the area near the navel, it can be deal in a simpler way thanks to the special operation of the PAL technique. This translates into less time during the intervention, and fewer complications in the postoperative period.
