The stomach is considered a problem area for millions of people. Diet and exercise alone struggle to give people the look they are going for. Liposuction can be very effective but leaves many people with extra skin that may not tighten naturally. Today, there is a new option out there, known as a Tickle Tuck. It combines the effective fat loss technique of Liposuction with a Tummy Tuck, giving you a nicely shaped and well-toned stomach!
What Is a Tickle Tuck?
Two effective procedures are combined when you get a Tickle Tuck. They are:
Tickle Liposuction: This is how the fat cells are removed. A tiny vacuum, known as a cannula, is inserted and used to precisely suck out fat where you are wanting to lose it. The scarring is minimal due to the tiny size of the cannula.
Avelar Tummy Tuck: Here is where the excess skin is dealt with. Unlike full-on tummy tucks, this form of abdominoplasty does not remove the belly button and reposition it or mess with the abdominal muscles. Any sagging skin from your midsection is dealt with and you are left with a smooth, firm lower abdomen. An Avelar Tummy Tuck is far less invasive and you can recover from it much quicker than a traditional tummy tuck.
You will get both of the above-mentioned procedures done at the same time. Multiple areas can be treated during the Tickle Liposuction portion of the procedure. The cannula vibrates in a way that will liquefy the fat without affecting any of the other tissue in the area. This procedure gets its name from the sensation patients feel while getting it done, so don’t worry about being in pain or uncomfortable. Next, the Avelar Tummy Tuck is performed. This will remove any excess skin.
Recovery from a Tickle Tuck takes very little time. You will be instructed to wear a special garment around your abdomen to minimize swelling for a week or so after the procedure. Many patients are able to return to work in as few as 3-7 days. After a Tickle Tuck, you can finally have the smooth and firm stomach that you have always dreamed of.
