Recovery

Once we’re done, we’ll give you the proper tools and instructions for a healthy recovery. Tickle Lipo is minimally invasive, allowing you to return to regular activities within 3 to 5 days.

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.

Almost immediate

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.
