What is Tickle Lipo?
Tickle Lipo is a brand new method of fat removal and body sculpting recently imported from the USA. Also known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposuction (NIL) and Nutational Custom Acoustic Liposuction (CAL), the new procedure significantly reduces discomfort during a liposuction treatment. An FDA approved treatment, it is much faster and safer than other traditional or laser liposuction methods. The recovery time is also considerably less, with most patients being able to get back to work within a few days.

How does Tickle Lipo work?
The funny name is actually derived from the tickling sensation experienced during the procedure.

This less invasive, faster form of liposuction uses a heat-free, laser-free oscillating wand to safely and easily remove body fat while avoiding the surrounding tissues. Tickle Lipo begins by having a cannula inserted into a small incision. These cannulas are operated by air and produce no heat, assisting in reducing patient discomfort. The cannula is vibrated at 10 Hz, causing the fat to break up which makes extraction easier. Since the fat is absorbed through the same cannula, the procedure takes less time than a conventional liposuction.

The end result is a smooth contour, faster healing and rapid recovery.

Can I receive Tickle Lipo?
The perfect candidate would be a healthy person who wishes to tighten and tone their body, provided they pass the doctor’s medical examination.

What areas of the body does Tickle Lipo treat?
Tickle Lipo can be used on many parts of the body. These areas include:

  • Inner thighs
  • Back
  • Outer thighs
  • “Love handles”
  • Bra bulge
  • Abdomen
  • Buttocks

There are different sized cannulas for treating different areas, which makes it ideal for areas that are difficult to treat with other liposuction methods.

What are the advantages of Tickle Lipo?
The first advantage is that Tickle Lipo’s technique of liquefying the fat and simultaneously absorbing it makes the procedure much shorter. Additionally, patients report less discomfort during their short recovery time. Using tickle lipo for fat removal also allows the unheated fat to be harvested for transplantation later on if necessary. Tickle Lipo is generally less expensive, due to a surgery room and general anaesthesia not being needed.

What is the recovery like?
Recovery time is minimal. Since general anaesthesia is not used, you are able to leave immediately once the procedure has been completed. You can resume your normal activities within days of receiving Tickle liposuction. Patients will be required to wear a pressure garment for 1-4 weeks.

What results can I expect?
Results will vary significantly from person to person. In general, you will see results immediately. These include a slimmer and toner area where the procedure was performed. Noticeable results should become apparent within a month, becoming even more noticeable over the space of a few months.

Are there any risks I should be worried about?
Overall, there are minimal risks associated with Tickle liposuction. Due to local anaesthesia being used and no heat being applied, the risks are minimised. The largest risk patients should be concerned about is uneven fat distribution and loose skin, however, both of these can easily be fixed by the surgeon if necessary.
