What is Tickle Lipo™?
Tickle Lipo™ is a new form of liposuction that is being offered by Genecov Plastic Surgery. It utilizes a cool, thin cannula that is inserted into the treatment area and vibrates rapidly in order to remove fat cells from the patient’s body. This process removes fat efficiently and safely. Tickle Lipo™ is a precise procedure that results in less trauma for the patient than traditional liposuction. The procedure is incredibly short and painless. Most patients opt to stay awake during their procedure, and have revealed that the procedure almost feels as if the cannula is tickling them, hence the name. One major plus of the procedure is that the fat cells that are removed from the body are not destroyed. This allows us transfer them to another part of your body, or to save them for future procedures.
How is Tickle Lipo™ Performed?
Tickle Lipo™ is performed either under local anesthesia or IV sedation. This allows the patient to recover faster, and they don’t have to feel the side effects of general anesthesia. Patients who opt for local anesthesia report that they felt no pain throughout the procedure and that it was actually very relaxing. The procedure is performed by making a small incision in the treatment area, then inserting the cannula. The cannula is then turned on, and small frequencies of waves vibrate through it. The vibrations cause the cannula to pump out any excess fat cells. The doctor sculpts the treatment area manually as the cannula pumps the fat cells out of the body. Since the cannula doesn’t use heat, the procedure is safe for the patient and offers the patient a shorter post-operative recovery time.
Am I a Good Candidate for Tickle Lipo™?
If you have a few extra pounds to lose, and are an avid exerciser and a healthy eater then you are a great candidate for Tickle Lipo™. Both men and women can be good candidates for this procedure. This procedure isn’t good for people who have a lot of weight to lose, but works well for people who just have a few extra pounds clinging to their bodies. Often people who work out and eat well recover very quickly from any type of liposuction procedure, including Tickle Lipo™. This is due to the fact that they are healthier before surgery, and will continue to live healthy lives once they have recovered.
What Kind of Post-Operative Tickle Lipo™ Care Can I Expect?
Post-operative care for Tickle Lipo™ patients is very easy. Patients often recover fully within a few weeks and can normally return to their daily routine within a few short days. Patients must care for their incision sites in order to prevent infection, however, if they clean the small incision sites once a day; that should be sufficient. Often, doctors will prescribe mild pain killers just in case patients need them as they recover.
What are the Typical Results of Tickle Lipo™?
Typically, Tickle Lipo™ produces phenomenal results. Since the procedure is very efficient and safe for patients, it offers a quicker recovery time and less swelling and bruising of the treatment areas. Your doctor can sculpt the treatment areas while he is removing excess fat cells, which allows the patients to have smoother results than with traditional liposuction. Results vary by patient, but the majority of patients who have undergone the Tickle Lipo™ procedure are happy with their final results, and about their new, thinner body.
What are Dallas Tickle Lipo™ Costs?
Dallas Tickle Lipo™ is very affordable. However, the costs are dependent on the area that is treated, and what type of anesthesia is used during the procedure. We recommend that interested patients set up a personalized consultation in order to determine what their options are in terms of liposuction, and what the cost of your procedure will be. We will be happy to answer any of your questions about Tickle Lipo™, and examine you to determine if you are a great candidate for the procedure.
