Tickle Liposuction is our newest treatment at The Avoca Clinic and has proved to be a popular alternative to traditional liposuction surgery. One of the most common questions we are asked is what are the differences, advantages and disadvantages between Tickle Liposuction and traditional Liposuction methods which we also provide at our clinics.
With traditional Liposuction, the patient requires general anesthetic, in an operating room setting and requires a larger instrument (known as a cannula) than is used with Tickle Liposuction. Although patients will not feel anything as they will be under general anesthetic, because of the nature of traditional liposuction, there is more tissue trauma than with the less invasive Tickle Liposuction method which only requires a local anesthetic. As a result, with Tickle Liposuction, the patient will be awake throughout the entire procedure and can speak with their surgeon whilst maintaining a greater sense of control of their body.
Minimal Pain or Discomfort
With Tickle Liposuction, body fat is removed gently using a special cannula that does not burn or cut and stops when non-fatty tissue is touched, reducing trauma while improving fat removal. The fibrous network and non-fatty tissue under the skin are preserved while improved fat removal uniformity provides excellent skin retraction and flat, smooth skin.
Infrasonic vibration allows for minimal pain or discomfort throughout the process. Typically, the patient will feel like they are being tickled during the procedure, hence the name! As a result, Tickle Liposuction is the most comfortable Liposuction method currently available.
Tickle Liposuction allows for the removal of stubborn body fat from one or more areas at the same time, including difficult or delicate spots that require extra special care. The body is sculpted with precision to the desired shape and size, removing all types of fat, including fibrous, more effectively.
Tickle Liposuction can be used on many parts of the body. These areas include, but are not limited to:
- Inner Thighs
- Outer Thighs
- “Love Handles”
- Bra Bulge
Faster Recovery & Faster Results
Because the structural changes are minimal compared to traditional Liposuction, patients’ recovery time is hugely reduced with the Tickle Liposuction method and will typically be back to work or their daily routines within days rather than weeks. With Tickle Liposuction, patients recovery a lot faster and see immediate results which only improve with time (see our before and after photos below).
Due to all of the advantages mentioned above, the Tickle Liposuction method is more cost effective and therefore affordable to patients than traditional Liposuction.
