PAL® Lipo in Denver, CO
About PAL® Lipo at Atagi Plastic Surgery & Skin Aesthetics
If you want the dramatic body sculpting results of traditional lipo with a faster, less traumatic procedure, Power-Assisted Liposuction (PAL®) in Lone Tree may be the ideal treatment for you.
Traditional methods of lipo require significant physical effort by your surgeon. This can lead to increased bruising, swelling and nerve and tissue trauma, resulting in a longer recovery. MicroAire’s PAL Liposuction adds a gentle vibration to the suction cannula. Although barely visible to the human eye, the added vibration makes a remarkable difference to the procedure. With Power-Assisted Lipo, plastic surgeon Dr. Tanya A. Atagi is able to use less force, which means less bruising, less swelling and a faster recovery for you! What’s more, PAL Liposuction affords increased patient comfort and improved safety since it’s not heat-based, unlike ultrasound or laser lipo.
Depending on your needs, PAL Lipo can be performed in the operating room under general anesthesia or in the comfort and privacy of Dr. Tanya Atagi’s office under local anesthetic for appropriate candidates. When complemented with proper diet, exercise and hormone balance, PAL produces impressive, long-lasting results.

Frequently Asked Questions About PAL Lipo Body Sculpting in Denver, CO
What is PAL Liposuction?
PAL stands for Power-Assisted Liposuction. This advanced lipo treatment is faster, safer and involves less downtime than other leading forms of lipo. Unlike ultrasound or RF-based lipo treatments, PAL uses vibration instead of heat, which reduces the risk of burns during treatment. PAL is also easier and more efficient to administer, enabling the surgeon greater control, precision and speed, which ultimately reduces downtime and side effects for a faster recovery process.
Am I a candidate for Power-Assisted Liposuction?
PAL can be performed on overweight patients who want to remove large volumes of fat, or on patients simply looking for definition, contouring and body sculpting. If you have stubborn fat deposits that are out of proportion with the rest of your body and you are within 30% of your ideal weight, PAL Liposuction may be right for you.
What is the cost of buccal fat removal or other lipo treatments?
Whether you’re interested in lipo in your arms or lipo on the chin or cheeks, the cost of your body sculpting procedure will depend on several factors, including the number and size of treatment areas, as well as the amount of fat removal you desire. During your personal consultation, we will work closely with you to devise a treatment plan that perfectly fits your needs and body sculpting goals.
Is Power-Assisted Lipo permanent?
With proper maintenance and weight control, your body contouring results can be maintained. However, if weight is gained following the procedure, fat may begin to accumulate in the treated areas.
When will I see maximum results?
You will be able to see your optimal results three to six months after your fat removal.
Are there any risks associated with PAL Lipo in Denver?
Side effects are rare. However, as with any surgery, there are some inherent risks. Some lipo patients have experienced visible lumps, bumps or general contour irregularities. Dr. Atagi will further discuss these possible effects at the time of your initial consultation.
What’s the recovery like?
We recommend that you be on your feet and walking the same day as the procedure. However, you may experience some swelling and/or bruising for seven to 14 days following your surgery. You will also need to avoid strenuous activity or heavy lifting for two full weeks, after which you can gradually resume normal activities.
