Power-Assisted Liposuction

At The Youth Fountain in Freehold, NJ, we offer a body sculpting treatment called power-assisted liposuction. We use advanced technology to remove more fat in less time, contributing to better results, a safer procedure, and a quick and efficient recovery. If you’re looking for a solution that can permanently eliminate stubborn fat from one or more areas, we can give you details about this advanced treatment that can help you achieve immediate and long-lasting results.

What Is Power-Assisted Liposuction?

During power-assisted liposuction, also known as PAL, a specialized cannula is inserted into tiny incisions in the treatment area and will vibrate rapidly or use high-speed rotation to break apart fat cells so they can be easily removed from the body.

PAL allows for an accelerated treatment time and enables Dr. Shakov to remove a significant amount of fat from each area in less time. The results are better, the treatment is safer, and patients can expect faster recovery than with traditional lipo.

What Are the Benefits?

There are many benefits associated with power-assisted liposuction, which is why it’s become such a popular choice among men and women looking to safely and permanently eliminate stubborn fat cells from one or more body areas.

The treatment process ensures an improved cosmetic outcome and rapid patient healing. Because the cannula tip used during the procedure moves rapidly to break down fat cells, it creates room around the fatty tissue, allowing for a more delicate and efficient procedure. Other treatment benefits include the following:

  • Safe and precise fat removal
  • Can treat large areas in less time
  • Reduced swelling and bruising
  • Versatile treatment areas
  • Customized treatment plans
  • Affordable procedure
  • Long-lasting results
  • Quick recovery times
  • Natural-looking results

What Can It Treat?

We can use PAL to treat some of the most common problem areas prone to stubborn fat deposits that prevent patients from achieving their ideal physique. We can use the device to eliminate stubborn fat from the face, the area beneath the chin, the upper arms, back, abdomen, buttocks, hips, thighs, and flanks. If you’re interested in treating an area not listed, we can discuss it with you during your pre-treatment consultation.

How Does It Work?

PAL is a procedure that is performed in our office. We use a tumescent, which is an anesthetic fluid that works by eliminating pain, so patients can enjoy a comfortable treatment process during each procedure. Small incisions will be made in the treatment area, and the cannula will be inserted into the incisions to suction out stubborn fat.

This process differs from traditional liposuction because the device has added power to spin the cannula at an accelerated rate to eliminate more fat in less time. The entire process typically takes 90 minutes from start to finish.

What Kind of Recovery Should I Expect?

After undergoing PAL, you can expect a 7 to 10-day recovery period. You’ll be provided with a compression garment post-treatment, which you’ll need to wear for up to four weeks to accelerate healing, protect the treatment area, and ensure the best results.

You’ll also need to spend the first few days after the procedure resting and must avoid strenuous exercise for the first few weeks. You’ll receive complete post-operative instructions at your consultation so that you know exactly how to prepare for the recovery process and what to expect.

Who Is It Right For?

Patients who want to achieve a slimmer physique or improved body contours may be good candidates for power-assisted liposuction. Because of the treatment advantages, it’s often the preferred liposuction method over similar body sculpting procedures, including non-invasive options.

It’s also ideal for patients who want to enhance their overall body definition and for those who have been trying to lose stubborn fat but have been unsuccessful despite eating a healthy diet and getting regular exercise. Patients should be at or near their goal weight at the time of treatment.

Determining Treatment Eligibility and Body Sculpting vs Weight Loss

It’s important to note that power-assisted liposuction is not a weight loss treatment but is designed for those who want to target problem areas with stubborn fat that won’t respond to a healthy lifestyle. An initial consultation is the best way to learn more about this treatment and how it works and confirm whether you’re a good candidate.

Dr. Shakov will ask you some questions about your medical history, treatment goals, and current health and will allow you the space to ask any questions about the procedure. Once he confirms that power-assisted liposuction is right for you, he can design a customized treatment plan, and you can move forward with the process to get one step closer to achieving your ideal contoured and defined physique.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

One of the many benefits of PAL is that patients can achieve their ideal results after just one treatment. Dr. Shakov will remove the necessary amount of stubborn fat from your problem area during a single procedure. You can also treat multiple areas during the same procedure or schedule an additional procedure months or years later to address other problem areas.


When you undergo power-assisted liposuction at The Youth Fountain, your procedure will be performed by Dr. Shakov, a certified general surgeon and an expert in medical aesthetics. He’s known for his precision-based body sculpting procedures, high patient satisfaction rate, and extensive experience.

When you come in for your consultation, Dr. Shakov will meet with you to discuss your treatment goals and primary problem areas and give you more details about PAL. He can also make other treatment recommendations if there are additional areas you want to treat or if you’re interested in our other cosmetic services.


Power-assisted liposuction is the perfect solution for men and women who want to eliminate stubborn fat but also want immediate and permanent results. After undergoing the procedure, you can expect exceptional results and a quick recovery. We can give you more details about this procedure and customize your PAL treatment plan so you can finally be free of the stubborn fat keeping you from your best body.
