Liposuction Application Techniques
There are 5 different techniques of.
These techniques are SAL (Vacuum Assisted ), PAL (Power Assisted ), UAL (Ultrasonic ), RFAL (Radio Frequency Assisted ) and WAL (Water Assisted ).
SAL (Vacuum Assisted ) Technique;
SAL is one of the most preferred methods in the process. In SAL , also called Vacuum Assisted Liposuction, a liquid mixture is injected into the area where fat tissues will be removed. The fat tissues, which become more fluid thanks to this mixture, are pulled through the incisions opened with cannulas. SAL can be performed under general or local anesthesia.
PAL (Power Assisted ) Technique;
The cannulas used in Pal are movable cannulas. Special moving cannulas spread and distribute the fat in the area it enters over a large area.
UAL (Ultrasonic ) Technique;
It is easier to apply than classical liposuction. Ultrasonic waves used in the UAL process directly reach the targeted fat cells.
RFAL (Radio Frequency Assisted ) Technique;
The main difference that distinguishes the radio frequency assisted procedure from other procedures is the tension it provides on the skin. The skin heated with the help of laser under the normal vacuuming method becomes more tense and dense.
WAL (Water Assisted ) Technique;
In water-assisted, water is injected under the skin. In this way, the fats are turned into slurry. The fat tissues that are slurried with- the help of water are pulled with cannulas
