Tickle Liposuction provides instant and permanent fat reduction. Once the fat is gone, it won’t come back — unless you put on weight. To maintain your results from Tickle Lipo for the long term, stick to a healthy diet and exercise plan to avoid gaining weight, which might undo the results.
Dr. Zelko likes to say, “ Your results are permanent as long as you behave yourself ( ie maintain your weight, maintain your results) if you lose weight you will enhance your results, BUT... if you gain weight, all bets are off.” Should you gain weight in the future, liposuction can be performed again (if needed) after losing the weight with diet and exercise, although you may consider strengthening your diet and exercise efforts moving forward to keep up the rewarding results of your Tickle Lipo treatment.

“Dr. Zelko and the staff were incredibly friendly, and made me feel very comfortable right away. The procedure itself was nowhere near as scary as I thought it would be. Dr. Zelko and his assistant talked and joked with me during the whole procedure (and even played my favorite Pandora station), which really relaxed me. I also found out why it’s called “Tickle Lipo”. I spent a good amount of the time on the table stifling my laughter… IT REALLY TICKLES! Who’d have thought?? I also kept laughing when I heard the “slurping fat suction sound”. –K.B.
In the United States, the average cost of traditional liposuction for one body area is $4,835. This is an average national price that may only account for the surgeon fee — meaning general anesthesia and operating room fees can significantly increase the final price. However, at Zelko Aesthetics, Tickle Lipo is performed with local anesthetic in an outpatient setting, so there is no general anesthesia fee.
More extensive liposuction fat reduction procedures, such as those performed during surgical skin reduction procedures (such as a tummy tuck with lipo), will be performed by most cosmetic surgeons using general anesthesia in an operating room, which affects the final cost. Again, it is important to note that Dr. Zelko performs all his procedures in the office with local anesthesia.
Insurance does not cover elective cosmetic procedures. The Tickle liposuction technique is not something that is going to be covered by insurance. For patients that are paying out of pocket, we aim to make the cost of Tickle liposuction more affordable with special financing plans for cosmetic surgery.
