Tickle Lipo is one of the most effective ways to safely remove stubborn body fat from the thighs, buttocks, flanks, stomach, and arms. This procedure doesn’t require general anesthesia, and patients can typically resume most normal activities within days. If you have excess body fat that isn’t responding to dietary changes and exercise, then you might be the perfect candidate for Tickle Lipo with Dr. Zelko.
During a traditional liposuction procedure, the surgeon will manually break apart pockets of fat with a thin rod known as a cannula. Once the fat has been moved around, the surgeon can then extract it with suction. Even though this operation can be very effective, it can also be hard on the nearby soft tissue. Patients who undergo this procedure usually spend three or four weeks in bed recovering. During that time, they often struggle with discomfort, limited mobility, and severe bruising.
With tickle Lipo, we can minimize those side effects while still removing just as much fat. Instead of manually breaking apart the fat, a small device at the end of the cannula liquefies the cells with infrasonic vibrations. This treatment gets its name from the vibrations that “tickle” the skin and underlying soft tissue. After the fat cells have been emulsified, they are much easier to remove.
Benefits of Tickle Lipo
One of the biggest drawbacks of traditional liposuction is the lengthy and uncomfortable recovery. Many people are tired of dealing with stubborn body fat, but very few are ready to spend weeks in bed recovering from an invasive procedure. Tickle Lipo patients tend to recover in just a fraction of the time.
We understand that everyone has their own unique needs and concerns, and that is why we invite all patients to schedule an appointment with us at Zelko Aesthetics to learn more about Tickle Lipo. That consultation will give us time to discuss your cosmetic goals and come up with a comprehensive treatment plan. We can then give you more information on how to prepare for your operation and what to expect afterward.
