Tickle Lipo offers several unique benefits to liposuction patients seeking beautiful body sculpting results, including:

  • Increased patient safety
  • No general anesthesia required but still may be recommended
  • Permanent and quick removal of fat cells
  • Superior body sculpting outcomes

How Does Tickle Lipo Work?

The FDA-approved Tickle Lipo involves the use of small incisions and a vibrating cannula that simultaneously delivers local anesthesia while breaking up and vacuuming unwanted fat from any part of the body. The vibrating cannula produces a tickling sensation, thereby greatly reducing any discomfort during this revolutionary, minimally invasive fat removal treatment. In fact, the vibrating cannula was specifically designed to act as a pain blocker by activating nerves that do not transmit pain signals. We think that while patients can do the procedure under local anesthesia alone, frequently this is more “participation” than most patients want to experience. The vast majority of patients still choose general anesthesia

What Areas of the Body Does Tickle Lipo Treat?

Tickle Lipo can be used to reduce unwanted fat cells from essentially any part of the body. The device features customized cannulas that are used on specific areas for the best results. Some of the most popular body areas treated with Tickle Lipo include the face, chin, back, ankles, knees, stomach, buttocks, thighs, waist and arms. Tickle Lipo can also be used as a touch up treatment after traditional liposuction or tummy tuck surgery.

Tickle Lipo Recovery and Results

Tickle Lipo requires mild to moderate recovery. Although daily activities can be resumed after the procedure, compression garments are recommended for up to three weeks to facilitate skin retraction and optimal results. Mild swelling is common around the incisions, which heal quickly. Postoperative results continue to improve for up to three to 6 months. Tickle Lipo permanently removes fat cells, allowing patients to keep their new, slim and more attractive figure for good.

Tickle Lipo Complications

Tickle Lipo complications are rare and treatable. A small percentage of North Carolina Tickle Lipo patients may experience poor skin retraction or uneven fat redistribution after the procedure, both of which generally can be corrected.

Am I a Candidate for Tickle Lipo?

Tickle Lipo is not a weight loss procedure and is best suited for patients looking to improve their figure by losing a few inches of fat from body areas resistant to exercise and diet. We will inform you of the risks and benefits associated with this procedure and determine your candidacy.
