Dr. Michael Macri of MD Aesthetics Medi-Spa & Laser Center now provides an extended menu of liposuction techniques in his Bergen County, New Jersey office, including Power Assisted Liposuction, a major advance in aesthetic surgery and a state of the art technology for high definition liposuction and body sculpting.

Dr. Macri has seen first-hand that Power Assisted Liposuction is a more effective and safer way to eliminate unwanted deposits of fat from large or small areas, and allows patients to achieve dramatically improved results with a faster recovery than ordinary liposuction.

One unique possibility available through Power Assisted Liposuction and other forms of liposuction is fat transfer. Fat transfer allows patients to experience the benefits of liposuction, while simultaneously restoring and enhancing areas that have lost volume over time. During the procedure, a patient’s fat is delicately removed, processed, and then re-injected into specific areas of the face or body.

Dr. Macri performs Power Assisted Liposuction with a special tube or cannula, which uses tiny, rapid vibrations to break up fat cells so they can be suctioned away gently with less trauma to the surrounding tissues. The vibrating tip used in Power Assisted Liposuction allows for safer liposuction because of its small, precise movements. This vibrating cannula also permits the doctor to break up and remove the fat using significantly less force during the procedure, again lending to increased patient comfort during and after the procedure.

Dr. Macri can remove more fat in a shorter period of time, which leads to enhanced results, a safer procedure, and faster recovery. Power Assisted Liposuction is performed using the tumescent, or wet, technique in which anesthetic fluid is infused into the fatty layer of the treatment area to maximize the effectiveness of the fat removal and patient comfort, and to minimize bruising.

Power Assisted Liposuction has several distinct advantages in Dr. Macri’s expert opinion:

  •  Increased comfort
  • Smaller incisions
  • Greater precision for targeted contouring and customized proportion
  • Reduced bruising and swelling
  • Shortened procedure time due to increased efficiency of fat removal
  • Improved safety
  • Does not utilize heat, so no risk of burns
  • Faster recovery


The significant improvements in safety and precision are making Power Assisted Liposuction even more attractive for patients considering body sculpting.

Dr. Macri says, “Power Assisted Liposuction is often referred to as the gentle form of liposuction.”

Despite his years of experience and advanced training, Dr. Macri strongly believes in continuing education and frequently attends conferences and symposiums both nationally and internationally. This enables him to remain at the forefront of the latest advancements in liposuction and body sculpting.

Dr. Macri is trained in and performs all forms of Liposuction in NJ including: Power Assisted Liposuction, Tumescent liposuction, Traditional liposuction, Laser liposuction, Ultrasonic liposuction, dry technique, wet technique, Super Wet technique, Smart Lipo, Slim Lipo, Cool Lipo, Pro Lipo Plus, Lipo Lite, Lipo Therme & Lipo Control, VASER liposuction, and Body Jet Water Assisted Liposuction. These newer methods each have their own unique advantages and allow surgeons to provide select patients with more precise results and quicker recovery time.
