If you have unwanted fat you want to remove without major invasive surgery, Tickle Lipo may be an ideal option for you.
Tickle Lipo is unlike other liposuction treatments. This minimally-invasive procedure reduces fat and improves the contour of the body with much less downtime than traditional liposuction. Some of the benefits of Tickle Lipo include:
Less Painful – Tickle Lipo’s infrasonic vibration gently excavates body fat using a special cannula that does not burn or cut and stops suctioning when non-fatty tissue is touched, reducing trauma while improving fat reduction.*
Flexible Treatment – Tickle Lipo allows your surgeon to reduce stubborn body fat from one or more body areas at the same time, including difficult or delicate spots that require extra care, such as the knees.
Even Skin Tightening and Toning – The fibrous network and non-fatty tissue under the skin is preserved, while the uniformed fat reduction provided by Tickle Lipo’s vibration energy provides for excellent skin retraction and flatter, smoother skin.
Precise Body Contouring – The body is sculpted with precision to the desired shape and size, reducing all types of fat, including fibrous fat, more effectively.
With the latest advancements that vibration-assisted liposuction offers, candidates that previously didn’t qualify for outpatient Lipo procedures (those not within thirty pounds of their ideal body weight) can now have larger volumes of fat excavated without the overnight hospital stays and traumatic recovery associated with the more traditional, hospital-based liposuction. Dr. Schwartz has performed Tickle Lipo on patients who were up to one hundred fifty pounds overweight – but wanted specific bothersome pockets of fat treated.*
More importantly, Tickle Lipo also provides Dr. Schwartz with the technology and finesse needed for precise body sculpting in patients with small, localized fatty deposits resistant to diet and exercise, and can even treat fine, delicate areas previously thought not appropriate for other variations of liposuction.*
Tickle Lipo, also known by the brand name Lipomatic®, is a minimally invasive liposuction procedure that utilizes a gentle, high-speed vibration-assisted energy to break down fat while keeping the connective tissue intact. The liquefied fat is then drained from the body by being gently suctioned away. As this form of Lipo does not use any type of heat as its energy source, there is no chance of skin burn or skin injury, as there can be with laser and ultrasound technology. Because this procedure assists in the stimulation of collagen in the treated area for up to six months post-treatment, excessive skin folds with large volumes of fat excavated often tighten up during this period.

Although there may be post-procedure swelling, most patients see the majority of their ultimate liposuction results within one to three months after surgery. Once the fat is excavated in the treated area it should not return or migrate to other parts of the body, provided the patient maintains a healthy diet and lifestyle. If you experience weight gain or loss, it should be evenly distributed over your entire body, but fat accumulation in a previously treated area is typically less proportionate than in untreated areas. Tickle Lipo patients also report that the skin in the treated area feels tighter and firmer.*
Tickle Lipo is generally a comfortable procedure, with most patients feeling no more than a “tickle” sensation.* You may experience mild redness, tenderness, swelling or tissue firmness in the treated areas, which may last up to several weeks. Generally, all that is needed to relieve tenderness is a cold compress and/or acetaminophen or mild anti-inflammatories, such as Ibuprofen. Gently massaging the area twice a day for five to ten minutes may enhance your results. Normal daily activity, including exercise, may be resumed immediately post-treatment. Actually, light physical activity, along with proper hydration, will help mobilize fat via the lymphatic system and help to improve your results.*
