Consultation for Liposuction Scottsdale

Three Types of Liposuction

Power-assisted liposuction (PAL)

Power-assisted liposuction utilizes a precise, vibrating vacuum cannula that removes fatty tissue. The vibrating cannula facilitates a more gentle removal of fatty tissues, minimizing post-operative bruising and swelling.

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL)

Ultrasound-assisted liposuction utilized a vacuum cannula that vibrates with ultrasound energy, sending ultrasound pulses that break up fat in dense areas. The selection of UAL is based on specific clinical indications.

Laser-assisted liposuction (LAL)

Laser-assisted liposuction utilizes a laser to liquefy that fatty deposits through light energy.  The liquefied fat is then removed by a vacuum cannula. The use of laser-assisted liposuction is based on clinical and surgical indications.
