Tickle Lipo might have a funny name, but it’s one of the best ways to eliminate stubborn fat and improve your overall appearance. The tickle liposuction technique, named after the tickling sensations that patients experience during the procedure, can be carried out under local anesthesia.

What Makes This Procedure Different?

Tickle liposuction is different because it doesn’t require general anesthesia. During the procedure, the same cannula is used to both liquefy and remove your unwanted fat in one simple process. The major advantage of tickle liposuction is the lack of discomfort. In fact, the procedure is famous for the tickling sensations that it produces as the cannula vibrates.

The results from Tickle Lipo are immediate. When compared to alternative techniques, the procedure is quite safe and doesn’t require nearly as much time for recovery.

How Does It Work?

Tickle Lipo will begin with a consultation with Dr. Zelko. During this consultation, Dr. Zelko will discuss your areas of concern with you and let you know exactly what to expect with the procedure. Common treatment areas include the thighs, love handles, back, abdomen and buttocks.

After the targeted area has been numbed with local anesthesia, a vibrating suction cannula will be used to remove fat from your body. A major advantage of this technique is the lack of heat, which is generated by some alternative treatments. The device used for Tickle Lipo has a built-in safety feature, and it will automatically shut off when it encounters non-fatty tissue.

As a result of this technology, you can rest assured that only fat is being removed from your body, and your healthy tissues are left intact and unharmed. Since tickle liposuction only targets fat, you benefit from a convenient procedure and minimal downtime.

The vibration of the cannula serves as an effective discomfort blocker and allows it to glide through your unwanted fatty tissue. The cannula even comes in different sizes for different treatment areas, which gives Dr. Zelko greater control over body sculpting. This provides exceptional results for patients.

What are the Benefits?

When compared with other techniques, tickle liposuction offers several great advantages. The major advantage is its ability to liquefy fat and significantly reduce the duration of the procedure. The procedure also comes with minimal, if any, discomfort, and the lack of a need for general anesthesia greatly increases its safety and efficiency.
