What You Need to Know About Tickle Liposuction

Tickle liposuction
Have you ever thought about liposuction? It’s a procedure that helps millions of patients reach their aesthetic goals every year. However, many people worry about the extent of the procedure, the recovery time, and how it will impact their appearance. Luckily, there’s an alternative: tickle liposuction. This is a relatively new method that dramatically lowers the invasiveness of liposuction.

Tickle liposuction, also known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL), uses an air pressure cannula to create a whirling motion and remove fat from the body. It puts far less stress on your body, making for a simpler, safer procedure with faster recovery time. Keep reading to learn more about tickle liposuction and its benefits.

Is Tickle Liposuction As Effective as Traditional Liposuction?

In many cases, tickle liposuction is more effective than traditional techniques. While both methods remove fat as well as the other, the tickle method causes less overall strain on the body.

In fact, many tickle procedures use local anesthetic instead of putting you completely under. This reduces stress and allows the doctor to achieve more extensive fat extraction.

Even though tickle procedures allow for increased extraction, they are considerably more comfortable and reduce pain and recovery time.

Where Can It Be Used on the Body?

While it does depend on the person, tickle liposuction can be used anywhere you could use traditional liposuction. It’s also better in challenging spots — like the knees.

Overall, tickle liposuction provides more options for your doctor to work with for your treatment plan.

What’s the Recovery and Downtime?

One of the primary reasons tickle liposuction was developed was to reduce stress on the body. As a result, recovery and downtime are typically less than those of traditional procedures. The exact recovery time will vary by person, depending on the extent of the procedure.

On average, there are about two to three days of downtime for basic recovery.
