Liposuction is commonly used to remove fat deposits that affect your appearance but that don’t respond to traditional fat-loss protocols. Unfortunately, traditional liposuction can damage your surrounding tissues and has a long recovery period.
Tickle Lipo is a less-invasive body sculpting procedure compared to traditional liposuction. It uses the latest technology to permanently, safely, and quickly remove excess fat to slim and tone your figure.

Tickle Lipo is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that permanently removes targeted areas of fat cells from almost any part of the body. It is also known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (N.I.L.).
Treated body areas include:
Traditional liposuction removes the fat from your body using a small tube (cannula). This suction damages the surrounding tissues. Patients are also placed under general anesthesia during the procedure.
Tickle Lipo, on the other hand, is gentler, more precise, and has a shorter recovery time than traditional liposuction.
Local anesthesia is used, meaning that you are awake during the procedure. The fat is liquified with the cannula, causing less tissue damage when it’s removed. Specifically, Tickle Lipo causes less bruising and does not cause wrinkling or dimpling.
Additionally, the cannula has a feature that automatically shuts itself off if it senses a tissue density change. This means that only fatty tissue is removed.
Dr. Williams will review your medical history and current medications with you before the procedure. He will also ask you what your treatment goals are and the specific areas that you want fat removed from.
Local anesthesia will be applied to the treatment area to prevent any discomfort. This means that you can relax when an incision is made in the numbed area.
The cannula is then inserted, vibrated with air, and rotated in a circular motion to break down and liquidize the fat. This vibration also activates nerve cells that block pain cells. As a result, most patients experience only a tickling sensation.
The liquidized fat is then sucked through the cannula. You will not require stitches. The entire procedure will take a few hours, and you will see immediate results.
There is minimal downtime. You can return to your normal activities after about 1-2 days. Swelling around the incision is common but will not last long. To aid in skin retraction, you’ll wear compression garments for several weeks.
Your results will improve as the months go by, and you’ll likely see notable results within 7-10 days. Maintain a proper exercise routine and diet to retain these results.
