Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL) Suitability

Find Liposuction Clinics in London & UK »

Alike to all types of surgery the best candidate for power assisted liposuction would be a healthy, over 18 year old who has realistic expectations of the surgery.  Pregnant women, and those breastfeeding cannot undertake any form of liposuction.   Power-assisted liposuction is not suitable for anyone who would be considered clinically obese, and should not be used to remove very large amounts of fat cells.  As a general rule you ought to be within 25 pounds of your ideal body weight.  It would be better to consider liposuction a body sculpting technique as opposed to a weight loss method. 

Power-assisted liposuction is best for areas that are notoriously difficult to change shape.  For example the inner-thigh, male breasts and under the chin are popular areas for power-assisted liposuction. 

Previous health problems you may have had need to be discussed with your surgeon as it is possible that these might limit the options available to you and might make the surgery just too risky to undertake.  Also, it is important that any allergies to forms of anaesthetic or other drugs that you might have are highlighted. 

As long as you are aware of the risks, realistic about the outcomes of your surgery and healthy, then power-assisted liposuction is an option for you.
