Tickle Liposuction removes excess fat deposits and reshapes your figure, enhancing both your body contour and proportion while improving your self-image. Because the cannula required for Tickle Liposuction is so small, your incisions are less than 5mm in length and placed in inconspicuous areas that are easily hidden.
What should I expect?
The procedure is done in office with a local anesthetic. A gentle vibration is felt as the anesthetic is applied to the areas to be treated. Dr. Zelko ensures your comfort throughout the entire procedure.
Tickle lipo can treat multiple problem areas at one time! The vibrating cannula liquefies the fat while adjacent non-fatty tissue is preserved. This allows the skin to naturally tighten, resulting in a slimmed and contoured look! The design and vibration of the cannula creates a tickling sensation for the patient, hence the very appropriate name for the procedure.
How should I prepare?
Minimize the use of aspirin, ibuprofen and certain supplements (such as ginko biloba, ginger, and vitamin E) before surgery as these may increase bruising. It is best to stop smoking several weeks before and after your procedure as any form of nicotine may slow down the healing process.
What will recovery be like?
You will need to wear a body garment around the area of liposuction for 1 week to prevent excessive swelling and improve the body contouring. The discomfort from the procedure will subside in a few days and most patients are able to return to work in a day or two. Any discomfort can be managed by Tylenol with codeine that will be prescribed by Dr. Zelko.
How much does it cost?
In the United States, the average cost of liposuction for one body area is $4,835. Please contact our office to schedule a consultation. During the consultation, we will review the best treatment options for you and provide you with a detailed quote for your 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.
