Tickle Lipo: Non-Invasive Fat Removal for the Unticklish

Tickle Lipo: Non-Invasive Fat Removal for the Unticklish

Minimally-invasive liposuction is quickly becoming the preferred way to look slim, toned, and sculpted without the down time associated with traditional liposuction. Introducing Tickle Lipo, a new procedure that’s designed to melt fat from trouble spots and reduce inches from your entire body. Tickle Lipo’s innovative approach to liposuction combines several recent advancements in liposuction, including vibrations and twirling patterns, for the ultimate fat-reduction session.

How Tickle Lipo Works

Also known as Custom Acoustic Liposuction (CAL), Tickle Lipo uses an air-powered cannula that vibrates at a 10 hertz frequency. Vibrations are commonly used in body contouring techniques ( VASER Liposelection®, VelaSmooth™) ) because they literally shake up fat cells, making them easier to remove. In addition to a vibrating mechanism, Tickle Lipo’s cannula also rotates to mimic the manual technique that plastic surgeons often use to break up fat and eventually liquefy it. Once the fat is in liquid form, it’s vacuumed out through the cannula.

Tickle Lipo claims that because it doesn’t use heat, it’s more comfortable than other body contouring procedures. But some Tickle Lipo patients have reported a mild “tickling” sensation during the treatment, which is caused by the vibrations touching the nerve fibers. Tickle Lipo does not necessarily require general anesthesia, but some surgeons will allow you to request it. Most will use a local anesthetic will numb the treatment area so your experience will be painless. Expect to see the results of Tickle Lipo about a month after your treatment: firmer skin, less jiggle, and less inches.

Is Tickle Lipo Right for Me?

Tickle Lipo can drastically improve your self-confidence by reducing fat. If you are looking for a procedure that’s safe and effective, Tickle Lipo is a happy medium between tumescent liposuction and non-invasive body contouring procedures.

Tickle Lipo is not advised for people who are looking to lose a lot of weight from the procedure. Instead, Tickle Lipo is idea for patients who have targeted problem areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise. If you have excess stomach flab, love handles, or thighs that don’t seem to budge—Tickle Lipo may help you reach your goals. Tickle Lipo can also be performed on the face, neck, arms, buttocks, and other places that tend to store fat.

Tickle Lipo Risks and Side Effects

Tickle Lipo is a fairly low-risk procedure. In the event that you experience uneven fat distribution, a follow-up treatment can help smooth out the area. Other risks include infection and blood clots. Side effects like bruising, soreness, and swelling may occur.

Scheduling Your Tickle Lipo Consultation

If you’re interested in Tickle Lipo, the best way to get more information and find out how it will work for you is to see a plastic surgeon for a consultation. Contact our representatives to schedule a consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon in your area.
