What Is Tickle Lipo?

Tickle Lipo is known internationally known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposuculpture (NIL) and previously as Custom Acoustic Liposuction (CAL). It is one of the newest devices for body contouring, and contrary to other modern lipo devices, there is no laser nor other thermal device, rather, it relies on the motion of the cannula itself to break up the fat before it is removed.

Tickle Lipo Facts

  • No risk of damage from laser or ultrasonic energy
  • Combines fat dissolution and suction into one step
  • Patients report less pain and faster healing over traditional lipo

How Does Tickle Lipo work?

Tickle Lipo utilizes a whirling movement (infrasonic and vibration) to break fat away from surrounding tissues and suctions it out at the same time, combining two of the steps of laser lipo into one. Many physicians report that this is a faster procedure than some of the newer laser and ultrasound technologies because of this combination.

This device makes the patient so comfortable that typically, no general anesthesia is required and the physician can instead perform the procedure while the patient is awake. Many patients report that the vibration of the cannula actually tickles as it removes the fat.

What Are The Risks Of Tickle Lipo?

Risks of Tickle Lipo are comparable to those of any other liposuction treatment. There is a risk of an uneven result and damage to surrounding tissues. The largest risk of many surgical procedures is the anesthesia which is usually avoided with Tickle Lipo as only local, rather than general anesthesia is needed.

Why Should I Choose Tickle Lipo Over Traditional Liposuction?

Tickle Lipo differs from other methods of tumescent liposuction because the cannula is activated by air pressure, causing a whirling movement, infrasound and vibration referred to as “nutational”. This patented technique provides faster infiltration of the tumescent solution – 25% faster than other liposuction technology, shortening the length of the procedure. The nutational vibration of the cannula also interferes with the brain’s pain receptors in the same way that scratching relieves an itch. A selection of specialized cannulas used in the Tickle Lipo technique allows the physician to better maneuver through fibrous or harder to reach areas of fat, enabling precise body contouring while remaining cool.

About the only thing that these technologies have in common is that they remove the fat that you can't get rid of. While they all have their risks, most are minimal and the majority of patients are pleased with their results. Doctors are able to use the new lipo technologies to see the results as they go, which has resulted in less repeat treatments.

How Much Does Tickle Lipo Cost?

The cost of Tickle Lipo is lower than a few other body contouring options due to the low cost to the physician, patients can expect to pay anywhere between $2,000 to $5,000, depending on how large of an area is being treated, how much fat is being removed and the market and location of the practice.
