What is Tickle Liposculpture?

Tickle Liposculpture is minimally invasive and FDA-approved for getting rid of excess fat and helping sculpt your desired body shape.

How Does Tickle Liposculpture Work?

During Tickle Lipo (officially called Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture), Dr. Kimmel uses infrasonic technology to remove excess fat cells. He makes a very small incision and then inserts a small air-pressured metal tube into the incision that breaks up fat with oscillations, rotations, and vibrations. It’s these vibrations that give Tickle liposculpture its name.

The infrasonic vibrations “trick” your body’s sensory system so that your body experiences tickling instead of pain during the procedure.

Because it’s a quick procedure, you can opt to have tickle lipo on multiple areas during the same session and use the excess fat for sculpting other areas.   

How Is Tickle Liposculpture Different From Other Types of Liposuction?

Instead of receiving general anesthesia as you do with traditional liposuction, you will receive local anesthesia on the lipo site. Using local anesthesia means that you’ll be awake during the procedure. However, the incision sites will be numb, so you won’t feel pain. 

Tickle liposculpture is less invasive than traditional liposuction. Traditional lipo involves larger incisions and suctioning out fat beneath the skin, which sometimes results in tissue damage. Whereas, tickle lipo preserves the surrounding tissue. 

Tickle liposculpture is also more comfortable and efficient than typical liposuction, allowing precise body sculpting with minimal trauma. Plus, the fat is removed intact, which makes it possible to use it for body sculpting purposes during the same procedure.

This procedure results in significantly less swelling and bruising than traditional liposuction and has a less painful recovery. Thus, you can expect to be back to doing your normal activities in only a few days rather than a possibility of several months with traditional liposuction recovery.
