For millions of people across America, exercise and dieting are not enough to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery offers Tickle Liposuction to residents of Phoenix and Goodyear, AZ, as well as the surrounding communities. Unlike standard Liposuction, Tickle Lipo is minimally invasive and has a shorter recovery time. And unlike Laser Liposuction, Tickle Lipo does not come with a risk of skin burns.
Our Tickle Lipo procedure offers the following benefits:
- Latest FDA-Approved Technology
- Utilizes a unique 3-Dimensional Vibration that Gently Breaks-Up & Remove Fat
- Removes Fat More Effectively & More Evenly
- Stay Cool Cannula– no risk of burning tissue
- Less Bruising, Little to No Downtime
- No General Anesthesia
- In -Office (walk-in/walk-out) procedure
Prior to undergoing the procedure, you will meet with your surgeon, who will assess your suitability. While Tickle Lipo is designed to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat, it is necessary to ensure your BMI is not too high before undergoing the procedure. This is not just another method of liposuction – it’s new technology that enables us to provide safer and more effective liposuction.
How is Tickle Lipo Different?
The cutting-edge technology of Tickle Lipo is unique in that it generates a 3-dimensional vibration that breaks-up fat with vibratory energy. After the fat has been emulsified, it can then be removed with smaller, safer cannulas that cause less trauma to the skin. Patients experience less bruising and less discomfort. Some patients have commented that they are tickled during the procedure by the vibratory motion (thus the name “Tickle-Lipo).
How is Tickle Lipo Safer?
Unlike current liposuction techniques that utilize laser or ultrasound energy, the cannula used in Tickle-Lipo stays cool, thus eliminating the risk of burning any tissue. Additionally, the handpiece has an automatic shut off when it approaches non-fatty tissue such as skin or muscle, thereby protecting the surrounding tissue from injury. These safety features enable Tickle-Lipo to safely and more effectively remove deep fat as well as the superficial fat and create “high-definition” sculpting.
Dr. DeRouin is the only Board-Certified Surgeon in Arizona offering the new Tickle Lipo!
Our surgeon has many years of liposuction experience and has performed liposuction with many different types of equipment. In his experience, Dr. DeRouin has found the new Tickle Lipo to be the best technology currently available. He has performed Smart Lipo (laser), Vaser Lipo (ultrasound), PALS (power assisted) as well as conventional Lipo (in an Operating Room with anesthesia). In his experience, none of these other methods of liposuction are able to break-up and remove fat as effectively and evenly as Tickle Lipo.
As Tickle Lipo is minimally invasive, it will be performed in the Dermacare Cosmetic Surgery office. You will not need to be placed under a general anesthetic, and the downtime you experience will be minimal. Cannulas will be inserted into the area(s) where you require excess fat to be removed. These cannulas will then be stimulated to vibrate, and as a result, the fat will gently be broken up, before being suctioned out.
Tickle Lipo is ideal almost anywhere where you experience stubborn fat on your body that cannot be eliminated with dieting and exercise, including:
- Inner and Outer Thighs
- Upper Arms
Following Tickle Lipo, residents of Phoenix and Goodyear, AZ may experience some swelling and bruising. Both of these side effects are normal, and can be addressed with painkillers, if necessary. You may be asked to wear compression garments for up to three weeks, and this will help the recovery process.
