Power Assisted Technique (PAL)
Power Assisted Liposuction (PAL) devices have recently become available. PAL devices use power supplied by an electric motor or compressed air to produce either a rapid in-and-out movement or a spinning rotation of an attached liposuction cannula. Advocates of PAL assert that it makes liposuction easier for the surgeon. Clinical evidence and surgeon testimony indicate that PAL is not only easier for surgeons, less traumatic to patients, and more efficient for both.
