With snow and cold still the primary weather pattern for Minnesotans, it is hard to imagine that summer might be on the way. Despite the current temperatures, bathing suit season will indeed be here before you know it, so it’s not too early to get your body into shape for what is to come. With just a few short weeks to prepare, you may want to get your body contouring treatment on the calendar so that you are ready to grab those shorts and bathing suits when the time is right.
Tickle Lipo: The Right Choice
Power-assisted liposuction, also known as Tickle Lipo, is a body contouring treatment that achieves superior results with less trauma to the body than traditional techniques. This procedure utilizes low-frequency vibration to loosen fat cells in the treatment area, making their extraction easier on the body. This means a quicker recovery and smoother results for you overall.
Unlike other liposuction methods, Tickle Lipo does not use heat to treat the fat cells. This minimizes the potential side effects associated with these alternative procedures. Tickle Lipo can be performed on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia, which further reduces the possibility of complications.
Sculpting the Problem Spots
Due to its gentler nature and the different sizes of cannulas that can be used for this procedure, Tickle Lipo is a versatile treatment that can address many of the problem spots that can’t be improved with exercise and diet alone. Treatment areas might include:
- Abdomen and waistline
- Upper and lower back
- Upper arms
- Hips and flanks
- Inner and outer thighs
Dr. Smith will discuss your concerns and goals prior to your procedure to determine whether Tickle Lipo will provide you with the results you are hoping for.
Less Trauma, Shorter Downtime
Although Tickle Lipo can achieve similar results to other liposuction methods, it is less traumatic for the body overall. The procedure requires tiny incisions that allow for the insertion of the cannula into the fat deposit. The cannula vibrates automatically to loosen the fat cells before they are suctioned out of the body. Once the procedure is completed, the incisions can be covered with a simple bandage. Most Tickle Lipo sessions take 5-6 hours to complete. This is due to a lot of preparation and post-procedure care that takes place.
Because Tickle Lipo is a gentler treatment, recovery time is usually only a matter of days. Most of our patients are back to regular activities within three to four days, although strenuous exercise will likely be restricted longer to allow for full healing of the body.
Getting Bikini Ready
You may see some results from your Tickle Lipo treatment right away, as the treated area will look and feel slimmer and more toned. Those results will continue to improve as the body heals from the procedure. If you schedule your treatment in the next few weeks, you will be completely ready to don the bathing suit when the temperatures allow. As long as you keep up your healthy lifestyle habits after your procedure, your positive results will be permanent.
