If you have ever thought about getting liposuction, you have a new alternative to traditional procedures with Tickle Lipo. It is a form of liposuction that uses low frequency infrasonic vibrations to break up and liquefy unwanted fat. It might sound complicated but the procedure is relatively simple, and unlike traditional liposuction, it is less damaging to your body and minimizes recovery time.

The procedure has several benefits for people who want liposuction but are unsure about having it done. Overall, it provides an excellent alternative to those who want to remove stubborn fat from their bodies and improve their self-confidence.

How Does Traditional Liposuction Work?

Liposuction is the surgical removal of unwanted fat from certain areas of the body. Many people have trouble getting rid of stubborn fat even though they practice healthy habits including eating right and exercising. This fat can hang around certain areas of the body mainly because of genetic factors. Generally speaking, people who get liposuction want to improve the look of their bodies and feel more confident.

During traditional liposuction procedures, your plastic surgeon will make small incisions in your body and insert a hollow tube called a cannula. This instrument is used to break up the fat by being moved back and forth. The surgeon will then use a syringe or surgical vacuum to remove the fat. Obviously, you will need either a local or general anesthesia to minimize the pain and discomfort during the procedure.

What is Tickle Lipo?

The procedure is actually a nickname for a procedure called Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture or NIL. The name comes from the tickling sensation that many people experience during the procedure. The procedure was actually developed in Europe, and it is starting to become more widely available in western countries thanks to technology. It is quite similar to traditional liposuction.

The surgeon will make small incisions in certain areas of your body. However, local anesthesia is used and applied through the tickle lipo cannula. Once the area is numb, a tickle lipo vibrating cannula is used to dislodge the fat and remove it.

The greatest advantage is that it is designed to minimize any damage done to the other blood vessels, cells, and soft tissues in the area. The technology does not generate any heat nor does it target not-fatty tissue. The system is designed with a safety feature that shuts off when anything but fat is encountered. Consequently, the area around the fatty deposits is left untouched and this cuts down on bruising, swelling, and bleeding. As the cannula moves and vibrates, it also acts as a pain blocker because it can deliver anesthesia at the same time.

The process also allows for the more precise surgical sculpting of your body because the cannula has greater maneuverability. The procedure is safe, relatively simple, and patients do not have to be put under to have it done.


The Benefits

There are many benefits compared to traditional liposuction. Here are some reasons to consider this procedure:

  • It minimizes the damage that the procedure can do to other tissues of the body. This reduces recovery time, and most people can go back to their normal life within a few days.
  • The procedure is relatively simple and only lasts one to two hours to complete. There are no overnight stays in hospitals, and the procedure can be done in an exam room or operating room.
  • Tickle liposuction is typically performed under local anesthesia so that you do not have to be put under. Many patients are awake during the procedure but it is designed to minimize discomfort. In fact, many patients report a tickling sensation during the surgery.
  •  It more precisely sculpts your body by removing excess fat so that you can have the body you have always wanted.
  • The procedure can be performed on many areas at the same time so it is faster than traditional liposuction
  • Helps to firm and tone the skin.
  • The fat cells are permanently removed so the results of the treatment are long-lasting.
  •  The results can be seen immediately.


Considerations to Keep in Mind

Even though tickle liposuction cuts down on the damage to your body, there is the likelihood that you will still feel the effects of the procedure. Soreness, swelling, redness, and pain are common side effects. If you are in pain, your doctor can prescribe painkillers. Be sure to follow any post-op instructions you are given. Also, keep in mind that liposuction is not a weight loss procedure.

The best candidates for liposuction are already committed to a healthy lifestyle and are only somewhat overweight. They usually have firm, elastic skin as well. Plus, the fatty deposits are localized to certain areas of the body.

The Costs

The cost of having the procedure done will depend on a variety of factors including who your plastic surgeon is, your geographical area, and how much time and effort the procedure takes. If you need a lot of fatty tissue removed, you can probably expect to pay more. Plus, along with surgeon fees, you will need to pay for the anesthesia as well as fees for the hospital or surgical facility where it is done.

Overall, the costs can range anywhere from $1,000 to $5,000.

Final Thoughts

Tickle liposuction is an excellent alternative to traditional liposuction procedures. The procedure uses infrasonic vibrations to dislodge and remove fat and this technology cuts down on the damage done to your body.  Overall, you get a nicely sculpted body without stubborn fat deposits on places like your abdomen, waist, hips, and thighs.

The process  also cuts down on pain and discomfort, and many people report a tickling feeling during the procedure. Overall it has many benefits compared to traditional liposuction, one of which is a shorter recovery time. Talk to your plastic surgeon about whether Tickle Lipo is right for you.
