Types of Liposuction

Types of liposuction offered by Dr. Pakeman include:

  • Power assisted liposuction (PAL) – this type of liposuction utilizes a vibrating cannula to break up stubborn deposits of fat, making them easier to fully remove
  • VASER™ Lipo – this liposuction option uses high-frequency ultrasound to emulsify fat deposits, helping ensure complete removal while minimizing damage to surrounding tissue
  • SmartLipo™ – also known as laser liposuction, SmartLipo uses concentrated energy to liquefy fat deposits prior to removal. The most advanced liposuction available, SmartLipo reduces trauma and shortens recovery, and may even help skin tighten around the treatment area

While all of these liposuction options offer highly pleasing results, no single technique can meet the needs of every patient. During your initial consultation Dr. Pakeman will carefully evaluate your problem areas to help you determine which option is best suited to produce the results you desire.

All of the liposuction options offered at Manhattan Surgical Care are specifically designed to minimize trauma and maximize results. However, even these liposuction techniques will require modifications to your normal activities during their short recovery periods. This makes now, during the cold winter months, an ideal time to undergo liposuction surgery – allowing for full recovery and optimized results once warmer weather returns. Please contact Manhattan Surgical Care today to schedule your consultation and begin your transformation to the healthiest and most attractive YOU you have ever been.
