Jan 11, 2019 @ 10:38 AM — by Richard Moore, M.D.

After months and months of dedicating yourself to a healthy diet and exercise regimen, you find yourself within striking distance of your goal weight. The trouble is that your body isn’t totally complying with your wishes. While you’ve definitely lost inches, you’re still having trouble getting rid of that stubborn fat in your problem area.

At this point, many people begin investigating liposuction as a way to remove unwanted fat. However, attempting to sail through the uncharted waters to learn more can cause even more confusion. There are several types of liposuction, but the two that most are talking about are traditional liposuction and Tickle Lipo. Here are the key differences between the two most popular types of liposuction:

Traditional Liposuction
There’s no doubt that traditional liposuction can help give you a slimmer and more contoured appearance. However, this method of fat removal is traumatic and requires a much longer recovery time. During the procedure, the patient is usually placed under general anesthesia, and a cannula is inserted into the problem area and the fat extracted by the combination of suction and trauma. This is a non-selective process that can result in significant trauma to adjacent tissues, vessels, and nerves. Patients will also experience a longer wait time in terms of recovery, returning to work and exercising, and the overall final results.


Tickle Lipo
A revolutionary procedure, Tickle Lipo is performed in-office while the patient is awake. It is safe, minimally invasive, comfortable, and uses the latest technology in fat removal and body sculpting. Much like traditional liposuction, a cannula is inserted into the treatment area; however, the cannula utilizes a nutational movement to selectively remove fat in a variety of areas. Fat is emulsified for easier removal, which reduces trauma to nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue by a walloping 80-90%! Since the removed fat is still intact, it can then be used in additional cosmetic fat transfer procedures such as breast augmentations, Brazilian Butt Lift, and even facial treatments to create a more defined silhouette.

Tickle Lipo delivers incredible clinical results, allowing the patient to return to work within a few days and enjoy a slimmer, more contoured body in a shorter period of time. Most patients experience faster healing and smoother results when Tickle Lipo is performed.
