PAL and VAL – The Two Pillars of Liposuction Surgery Todayadmin
Liposuction refers to a series of surgical procedures that focus on eliminating stubborn and extra fat from different parts of the body. The fat that is resistant to diet and exercise is eliminated through liposuction. The common sites for fat deposition are the hips, abdomen, thighs, waist, neck, back of the arms, buttocks and under the chin.
Liposuction is considered a medical boon; it helps an individual attain a fit physique of their desire. Liposuction surgery is performed under general anaesthesia. The surgery is less invasive, straightforward and safe. The recent medical and technological advancement has facilitated the surgeons with the most sophisticated devices and resources required for an accurate and safe procedure. The advanced technology ensures refined results in liposuction.
Techniques of Liposuction Surgery
An extensive range of technological innovations has replaced the conventional procedures of liposuction. Power-assisted liposuction, Ultrasound driven procedures, laser and radiofrequency enhanced are the innovations.
There are different techniques of liposuction, from conventional to the latest technology, to tend to the specific requirement which includes:
Suction-Assisted Liposuction (SAL) – The most traditional method of liposuction, where fat is removed by vacuum. This procedure focuses on removing unwanted fat from specific areas of the body.
Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) – Performed with Micro Aire tool. It produces a gentle oscillating motion which minimises tissue injury. It greatly intensifies the precision.
High-Definition Liposuction – This technique targets small fat pockets. This procedure focuses on selectively eliminating fat pockets along with enhancing natural muscle contour.
Ultrasound-assisted liposuction (UAL) The procedure uses sound waves to melt fatty deposits, making it easier to remove them through smaller incisions. It is one of the most sophisticated and modern techniques used for liposuction.
The LASER-This procedure uses the laser to disrupt the fat cells.
Significance of PAL and VAL in Liposuction Surgery
Elimination of stubborn fat from the body ensures a symmetrical and well-toned, and fitter physique. However, prospective patients are apprehensive about the technique and procedures and complications. The ultramodern power-assisted liposuction (PAL) with Micro Aire and Ultrasonic assisted liposuction (UAL)with VASER tools enable your surgeon to circumvent these risks. They restrict the damage to the adjacent structures by permitting an utmost level of precision. They ensure minimal damage to fat cells, enabling their reuse for augmentation.
Let us analyse the functioning of Micro Aire and VASER.
Power-Assisted Liposuction with Micro Aire
MicroAire is a Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) technique is a sophisticated, innovative method that significantly curtails the risk and time of the conventional procedure.
It has a cannula or a narrow tube fitted onto the MicroAire tool that is power-driven and creates a back-and-forth motion in the subcutaneous layer. This movement enables the cannula to penetrate through the fat tissues and split them apart.
The fat is suctioned out and utilised for any grafting to other parts of your body to facilitate augmentation through fat. It confirms that PAL ensures the viability of fat cells. The accuracy of the cannula significantly inhibits blood loss and pain. The adjacent vital structures, including the nerves and blood vessels, are secured. This process enhances the recovery.
Ultrasound-Assisted (UAL) Liposuction- VASER
VASER – Vibration Amplification of Sound Energy and Resonance. It is a sophisticated, innovative Ultrasound-Assisted Liposuction (UAL) technique. It enhances rapid recovery owing to its painless and less invasive approach.
VASER liposuction utilises a tool that creates high-frequency sound waves that loosen or emulsify the hefty fat accumulations. It is often used in combination with MicroAire to target the minor fat deposits; VASER’s high-intensity ultrasonic waves liquefy the fat to suction them out accurately. The heat generated by the VASER device also contracts and tightens your skin during the procedure. Moreover, the VASER tool is just 3mm sized; thus, the incision made is minor. Therefore, it ensures minimal injury and a swift recovery.
VASER liposuction targets fat deposits securing the adjacent nerves and blood vessels to avert any unprecedented complications. The precision that VASER liposuction imparts enhances the quality of the outcome. Combining PAL and UAL ensures exceptional results in liposuction.
PAL and UAL are often implemented in combination for the refined results, especially in PURE contouring.
PURE – Power-Assisted Ultrasound-Assisted Radiofrequency-Enhanced Contouring is an innovative technique designed by Dr Priya Bansal and the team at RG Aesthetics – It is integrated with Radiofrequency-Enhanced technology for accurate contoured results. Applying this technique ensures extreme precision in Liposuction surgery, and your body gets a perfectly contoured appearance.
It is the latest innovation in the contouring method. It implements a small device that heats the subcutaneous layer for skin tightening. The heat generated from the radiofrequency device stimulates collagen synthesis, enhancing the skin’s natural tone. Thus shrinks the wrinkles and irregularities in the skin to enhance the overall appearance in the PUREly subjected site.
Each phase of the PURE Liposuction procedure has its unique contribution with Power-assisted liposuction (PAL) and Ultrasound-assisted Liposuction (UAL) as the spine of the Liposuction Surgery. As a world-renowned plastic surgeon in Gurgaon, Dr Bansal is well equipped with the latest, innovative techniques.
