Here at SkinPhysicians & Surgeons we are excited to introduce the newest advance in liposuction: Tickle Lipo™.
Tickle Lipo™, also known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture or Custom Acoustic Liposuction, is an FDA-cleared liposuction technique for fat removal and body sculpting. It was developed In Europe with the objective of improving patient safety and comfort as well as results. Many people are now choosing Tickle Lipo™ for safe and effective fat removal of the neck and body.
Why Choose Tickle Lipo™?
Tickle Lipo™ is a revolutionary technique using three dimensional vibration (nutation) to greatly improve the effectiveness, ease, and safety of true tumescent liposuction. In the same way that scratching an itch relieves pain, the vibration acts as a pain blocker by tricking your brain into not feeling discomfort or pain. The vibration of the cannula supersedes the transmission of nerve impulses to your brain, making the procedure much more comfortable. Many patients even claim that it tickles.
This procedure is almost always performed with local anesthesia alone. In other words, you are completely awake and alert, and comfortable. We rarely will administer light sedation to the more nervous patient, and this procedure never requires general anesthesia and therefore avoids the risks and increased recovery times associated with this type of anesthesia. There is often no need for narcotic pain medications after surgery.
We encourage patients to walk and assume normal daily activities almost immediately after the procedure, but abstain from exercise for two weeks and avoid hot tubs for several days.
The speed and ease of recovery is a great advantage of the Tickle Lipo™ procedure. There is less bruising and swelling and most patients can return to work in a few days and some can even return to work the next day, rather than the standard 2 week period after other methods of liposuction surgery. Wearing compression garments for about one week after surgery will ensure good circulation and proper healing.
The vibrating cannula is also beneficial to the surgeon enabling Dr. Lee to more easily glide through the fat, delivering the local anesthesia much more evenly and easily. The vibration of the Tickle Lipo's cannula permits it to be more easily maneuvered through the more fibrous areas of the body (ie. the more "stubborn" areas of fat) which results in an increased amount of fat removed, a faster procedure, improved body definition, and less bruising. Additionally, it has a built in safety feature that automatically shuts off when it comes in contact with the non fatty tissue.
Get immediate results, and enjoy continued improvements in your appearance over the following six to twelve months. Also, remember that you have permanently removed fat cells, successfully changing the contours and overall silhouette of your body to a more pleasing shape. Treatments are affordable and financing is available. The procedure is extremely safe, results are very rewarding, and there is minimal to no downtime.
