"PowerX is a departure from Sound Surgical Technologies' previous technology,"
What differentiates PowerX from other liposuction devices is the rotational hand-piece which allows physicians optimal control. "Unlike other power-assisted liposuction devices, the Power X has a hand-piece that rotates, which makes it more efficient, safer, and easier to control than other power devices," remarks Columbus cosmetic surgeon Dr. Marie DiLauro, "Both speed and rotation are adjustable on the Power X which gives the surgeon the ability to carefully contour and sculpt most areas of the body with exceptional precision."
With adjustable speed and rotation, PowerX allows physicians to address both superficial fat and large volume fat removal - one device to sculpt and contour the body with ease and precision. According to Sound Surgical Technologies, another benefit of the PowerX is due to the unique rotational cannula, the device battles physician fatigue which typically occurs during power assisted liposuction. Less fatigue may equal less procedural time and reduced aspiration time.
Dr. DiLauro explains, "The PowerX gives me the ability to sculpt and contour more efficiently and precisely than before. I am able to remove more fat comfortably in a shorter amount of time, then slowly remodel superficial fatty areas to accentuate curves and increase muscle definition."
Increased physician control and less fatigue may translate to less pain and less bruising for the patient, making the downtime significantly shorter than traditional mechanical power assisted liposuction. Physicians who are familiar with the device have reported that their patients are more comfortable with the silence of the device and most undergo the procedure under local anesthesia vs. general anesthesia - which also cuts down on cost as well as downtime.
In a category in which the aesthetic industry seems to be moving away from power-assisted liposuction - with laser lipolysis body contouring devices such as Smartlipo and new non-surgical options such as the Exilis - PowerX joins the field as an upgrade to traditional power-assisted liposuction.
