Tickle Lipo

Taking the “stubborn” out of stubborn fat.

Sometimes there are pockets of fat that just don’t seem to go away. You can do all the crunches and push-ups in the world, yet that stubborn fat still holds on. That doesn’t mean it has to stay forever. With our innovative Tickle Lipo procedure at The Edge for Men, we can remove unwanted fat to finally give you the lean body you’ve been working for.

Benefits

Quicker Recovery, Less Discomfort

Tickle Lipo uses nutational movement of the cannula to selectively remove unwanted fat. When compared to traditional liposuction, Tickle Lipo has 80-90% less trauma, resulting in a quicker, more comfortable recovery.

Decreases trauma to surrounding tissue

Traditional liposuction can result in significant injury to the nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue as compared to Tickle Lipo.

Partners great with other procedures

Many of our Tickle Lipo patients go on to combine this procedure with other body sculpting procedures such as Renuvion and Emsculpt Neo to obtain even more impressive results!

Step-by-Step Process

Local Anesthesia

The Tickle Lipo procedure is performed using tumescent anesthesia whereby a local infusion of numbing solution is infiltrated into the fat to be removed. Patients are awake during the procedure but do receive medications in advance to relax and decrease discomfort. In addition, nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is used during the procedure.

Step-by-Step Process

Insert the cannula

Small skin incisions, less than 1/2 inch, are strategically placed followed by the insertion of a small suction cannula. The nutational movement and suction of the cannula frees up and removes the unwanted fat cells.

Recovery

Upon completion of your procedure, dressings will be placed and you will be fitted with a compression garment. All patients are sent home with a recovery package that contains all of the supplies necessary for their recovery over the next 48 to 72 hours.

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.

Fast Results

Noticeable results are apparent immediately following your procedure. All patients receive additional treatments over the next 2 weeks to promote faster results and quicker healing. This helps us to monitor your progress and recovery as well.

Frequently Asked Questions

Tickle Lipo uses a cannula with nutational movement to free up and remove unwanted fat cells. This results in significantly less trauma to the surrounding tissue and a quicker recovery.

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 and may divide to create new fat cells. Lifestyle choices are important.

Patients typically take 3 to 5 days off work following a Tickle Lipo procedure. No strenuous activity is advised for a minimum of 2 weeks so that the body has time to heal and recover.

The first few days following the procedure you may experience modest discomfort. To help ease pain, we’ll provide prescription pain medications.

An improvement in appearance is seen almost immediately. Results will continue to improve for 6 to 12 months following your procedure.
