The TickleTite procedure is a combination of BodyTite and Tickle Liposuction. The process was created to contour your abdomen for a smooth and firm appearance. This combines the BodyTite effect of tightening the skin with the gentle removal of fat through Tickle Liposuction. Tickle Liposuction enhances your proportions and body contours, reshapes your figure, and removes excess fat. The procedure uses a very small cannula to create tiny openings in inconspicuous areas. BodyTite is a body contouring procedure using a minimally invasive and well-controlled heat device to tighten loose skin.
TickleTite is usually done in office using a local anesthetic to ensure the patient is comfortable. Most patients feel a gentle vibration when the anesthetic is applied. The procedure is also capable of treating numerous areas simultaneously. The fat is liquefied by the vibrating cannula while the non-fatty tissue adjacent to the area is preserved. This enables the skin to tighten naturally for a contoured and slimmer look. The reason this procedure is call TickleTite is because you may feel a light, tickling sensation from the cannula during the procedure.
The next step is when the BodyTite device is used to tighten the skin. The patient remains comfortable, usually feels a mildly warm sensation and the movement of the handle. Prior to the procedure, the individual will be given instructions so they can prepare for the body contouring procedure. We recommend having someone drive the patient home after the procedure is complete. It is also advised that the patient abstain from ibuprofen, aspirin, and certain supplements (e.g. biloba, ginkgo, vitamin E) as these can hinder the healing process. Patients must also stop smoking a number of weeks prior to the procedure as nicotine can also impede the patient’s return to normal.
