Tickle Lipo Vs Liposuction

Tickle Lipo vs. Liposuction. How will you know which to choose? We’ll help decipher the difference for you. Tickle Lipo is a form of liposuction that is less invasive and uses low frequency infrasonic vibrations to break up and turn your unwanted fat into liquid.*

Sound painful? It’s actually called “Tickle” Lipo because patients often laugh at the ‘funny’ feeling of the vibration while not feeling pain at all. While traditional liposuction is a surgical procedure to reduce fat and requires general anesthesia, Tickle Lipo only requires a topical anesthesia which costs less and carries less risk while enabling you to remain awake and recover quickly.*

What’s the Difference Between Tickle Lipo and Traditional Liposuction?

Along with the anesthesia difference, the two liposuction methods differ quite a bit. Traditional liposuction requires a small incision where a hollow tube, called a cannula, is placed to begin sucking fat from your body. The health provider has to aggressively move this tube back and forth to break up the fat and has to use a vacuum to reduce the fat. It’s more work for them and more damage to your surrounding tissues than the Tickle Lipo cannula.*

When Tickle Lipo is performed, a small incision is made and the local anesthesia is applied throughout your body using the Tickle Lipo cannula. Once your treatment areas are numb, the vibrating Tickle Lipo cannula begins working to reduce the fat from your body. This cannula is designed to prevent damage to your skin tissues and nerves so its safer and more effective with less work, making tickle lipo vs liposuction clear in which is a simpler procedure.*
