If you want to drastically alter the appearance of your midsection, then you don’t need to settle on a single cosmetic procedure. Combining treatments could allow you to quickly eradicate multiple cosmetic issues such as loose abdominal skin and stubborn body fat. Tickle Lipo, the Avelar tummy tuck and CoolSculpting® are three of our most popular procedures, and they might be just what you need to finally look and feel your best.

Tickle Lipo

The Tickle Lipo procedure is a relatively new form of surgery designed to help those who are struggling with excess fat in the stomach and flanks. Traditional liposuction forcefully withdraws pockets of fat, and that can lead to intense discomfort, bruising and a lengthy recovery. Tickle Lipo utilizes special technology to break apart the fatty tissue as it is being removed. By emulsifying the fat before it is removed, there is much less damage to the nearby soft tissue.


Many years ago, a team of doctors began to notice that children who regularly ate popsicles had smaller pockets of fat in their cheeks. After quite a bit of research, they realized that fat cells can actually be safely destroyed by cold temperatures. CoolSculpting® is designed to freeze small pockets of fat so that the walls begin to fall apart. The patient’s body then attacks and expels those cells just as if they were burning the calories naturally.

The Avelar Tummy Tuck

One of the reasons why traditional tummy tucks are so tough on patients is because the underlying abdominal fat and muscle must be manipulated. The Avelar tummy tuck mainly removes the extra skin along the midsection, and that makes it much less invasive. Not only are these tummy tucks easier to recover from, but our surgeon can also remove quite a bit of localized fat during the procedure.
