Tickle Liposuction

After researching the “enhanced” liposuction device market for several years, Dr Kimmel is convinced, “Tickle Lipo offers significant advantages for my patients compared with any other liposuction technology.”

Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL), commonly referred to as ‘Tickle” Liposculpture, is a revolutionary, FDA approved device, which utilizes an air pressure powered cannula (tiny metal tube) to create a patented triple motion of piston-like micro oscillation, rotation and vibration. This unique whirling motion removes fat more efficiently than other techniques, while preserving and respecting surrounding critical non-fatty tissues. This allows precise body sculpting with less trauma. Since the fat extracted during this procedure is handled gently, individual fat cells can be preserved and remain viable for use in any additional fat transfer procedures, which might be performed simultaneously.

So why the term ‘Tickle’ liposuction? The low frequency, underlying infrasonic vibration generated during the procedure actually “tricks” your body’s sensory system. Instead of experiencing pain with the anesthetic infiltration and liposuction components of this procedure, patients actually report a comfortable, mild “tickling” sensation. This advantage allows for the comfortable performance of Tickle Lipo under local anesthesia alone and thereby, facilitates more rapid recovery.

“From a patient’s perspective,” remarks Dr. Kimmel, “the advantages of Tickle liposuction are huge. The procedure allows my patients to undergo more extensive fat extraction more comfortably with significantly less swelling and bruising without the need for formal intravenous sedation anesthesia. This correlates with a more rapid recovery and return to their ususal lifestyle.”

When considering liposuction, or indeed any cosmetic procedure, be sure to select a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon, certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). As a board certified plastic surgeon with over 15 years of clinical practice experience and member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) and American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (The Mark of Distinction in Cosmetic Plastic Surgery® ASAPS), Dr. Robert Kimmel welcomes the opportunity to help you achieve your goals and enjoy a happier, more confident lifestyle.
