Tickle Lipo™

Tickle Lipo™ is a breakthrough device approved liposuction and fat harvesting process that utilizes the Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture system (N.I.L.) and is FDA approved for fat removal and body sculpting.

Tickle Lipo™ is a new body contouring treatment that actually feels good while it’s being done. In fact, some patients experience a slight tickling sensation during their procedure and many patients say they are surprised that they can quickly return to their normal activities.

Tickle Lipo is performed with a special device which can actually help to block pain during the liposculpture process. Named for the slight tickling sensation some patients report during the procedure, the process employs a unique rotating, moving “cannula” or thin tube to remove fat. The vibration of the cannula also interferes with the brain’s pain receptors and allows the physician to more easily maneuver through fibrous or harder to reach areas of fat, enabling precise body contouring.

This approach differs from other methods of liposuction because the cannula is activated by air pressure, causing a whirling movement of rotation and thus vibration referred to as “nutational”. This European technique provides faster infiltration of the tumescent solution – 25% faster than other liposuction technology, shortening the length of the procedure. Results are realized almost immediately.

Nutational Lipo, previously called Custom Acoustic Lipo was invented in Belgium by a plastic surgeon under the name “Lipomatic”. There have been over 8,000 procedures performed in Belgium with little to no side effects. “Tickle Lipo”— is a nickname given to the procedure because of its unbelievable ability to cause a tickling sensation in some spots (rather than pain).

It’s a great device to combine with our SLIM Lipo laser liposuction. It has minimized the pain and decreased the time it takes to place lidocaine under the skin and remove fat.

Tickle Lipo procedure can be combined with Laser Liposuction (to assist with skin shrinkage or cellulite) or by itself. The fat can be harnessed and placed in different body areas for so called Fat Grafting or Autologous Fat Transfer. Dr. Rosinska currently performs fat transfer to face, hands and earlobes. Fat is removed from the body area being liposuctioned and injected instead of an implant or dermal filler.
