PAL SYSTEM PRODUCT BROCHURE
Compare PAL to Traditional Liposuction
Clinical studies comparing the PAL system to manual liposuction found that PAL aspirates 31% more volume per minute leading to a 35% reduction in procedure time.1
PAL is proven to reduce surgeon fatigue by 49%, offering a safer and more precise procedure. These benefits result in superior outcomes and faster healing and recovery rates for patients.1
The quality of PAL-harvested adipocytes has been shown to be similar to those harvested by manual liposuction; and PAL produces higher yields of loosely adherent stem cells, which may improve graft retention.2, 3, 4
“It’s dramatic how much better patients feel, how much more effectively we can treat them, how much more satisfied they are, and how far superior the results are compared to [traditional liposuction].”
– Dr. Gerhard Sattler
PAL Powered Handpiece | PAL-650
The PAL-650 from MicroAire® is a powerful, precision instrument designed for small- or large-volume fat extraction, body contouring and fat harvesting.
PAL’s smooth reciprocating cannulas glide through tissue, reducing the amount of physical effort required during liposuction, thus reducing O.R. time.1
Reciprocation increases control, helping the surgeon gently guide the cannula with greater accuracy, even through dense fibrous tissue. The result is a faster procedure, less fatigue and more precise outcomes.1
- Speed control on handpiece and power console
- Fully autoclavable handpiece and cable
- Anodized aluminum body
Weight 1.1 lb (0.5 kg)
Height 48″ x 1″ x 1.5″ (20.3 x 2.5 x 3.8 cm)
- 3 mm reciprocating stroke adjustable up to 4,000 cycles/min
Small variations in the number of ports, as well as their size and location on the cannula, can have a significant impact on performance and outcomes. MicroAire has developed several port configurations based on clinical studies and surgeon feedback.
Most popular cannulas for large-volume debulking and body contouring.
Well-suited for producing small, consistent lobules for fat grafting.
PAL reciprocation provides cannula uses that go beyond liposuction.
