Power assisted liposuction is a surgical technique for large-volume fat grafting wherein the cannula vibrates, helping to more easily release fat cells from the body. This also means that the surgeon won’t need to use as much force during the procedure, as the vibrations help with the motion.

This provides an added benefit to liposuction, because when a surgeon isn’t able to move the cannula as well, not as much excess fat can be removed from the patient’s body.

As you can see, a few vibrations go a long way. Power assisted liposuction helps both the patient and the surgeon in many ways.

A Faster Recovery with Power Assisted Liposuction

Power assisted liposuction allows the surgeon to remove more excess fat within a shorter amount of time.

The power assisted tip of the cannula vibrates rapidly, which actually makes liposuction act more gently on the body’s tissues because it loosens fat cells and helps them to be easily vacuumed away. This results in better outcome, less risks, and a quicker healing time.
