Taking the “stubborn” out of stubborn fat.
Sometimes there are pockets of fat that just don’t seem to go away. You can do all the crunches and push-ups in the world, yet that stubborn fat still holds on. That doesn’t mean it has to stay forever. With our innovative Tickle Lipo procedure at The Lifestyle Center, we can remove unwanted fat to finally give you the lean body you’ve been working for.
What it Treats
1.5 hours- 4 hours depending on the number of areas
3-5 Days of downtime, and 2-4 of lifting and working out restriction
Less pain and downtime
Tickle Lipo takes away the major pain, swelling, and downtime that comes with traditional liposuction. As a result, you get real fat-reduction results with only a few days for recovery.
Decreases trauma to surrounding tissue
Tickle Lipo is an incredibly safe procedure that comes with 80-90% less trauma than traditional liposuction, ensuring that you get a sculpted look with less damage.
Partners great with other procedures
Not only can Tickle Lipo be part of our minimally invasive Mommy Makeover, it also works with a variety of other procedures to give you the best sculpting results possible.
How it Works
When compared to traditional liposuction, Tickle Lipo reduces swelling, pain, and downtime. The Tickle Lipo suction cannula uses a nutational movement, which removes fat with 80-90% less trauma to the surrounding vessels and tissue than traditional liposuction. The procedure usually takes around 1 to 2 hours, and recovery only takes a few days.
With Tickle Lipo, body-sculpting results are almost immediate. To promote a faster recovery and more impressive results we follow up all of our Tickle Lipo procedures with a lymphatic massage, Venus Legacy, and acoustic wave treatments during the two weeks after your procedure.
Frequently Asked Questions
Tickle Lipo is a form of liposuction that results in 80-90% less trauma than traditional liposuction with a lower likelihood of irregularities and smoother contours.
The fat cells that are removed will not return. However, if you gain weight following any fat cell removal or fat destruction procedure, then fat cells somewhere in your body will increase in size. Lifestyle choices are important.
Most patients take 2 to 5 days off following their procedure but can be up and moving immediately following the procedure. Most patients can resume more strenuous physical activities after 2 to 4 weeks.
The first few days following the procedure you may experience modest discomfort. To help ease pain, we’ll provide prescription pain medications.
Results become evident almost immediately, but it will take six months or more for final results to appear as the body remodels itself. The resolution of swelling can be prolonged, particularly on larger cases.
