Innovations Medical introduced Vibro Lipo (also called Tickle Lipo or Air-Sculpt) to the United States. Innovations Medical’s first in Vibro Lipo include:
1. The first Vibro Lipo in the UNITED STATES.
2. The first to use Vibro Lipo for fat transfer procedures like BBL and natural breast augmentation.
3. The first to combine SmartLipo and Vibro Lipo for smooth, area liposuction and reduced loose skin.
What is Tickle/Vibro Liposuction?
Tickle Liposuction, also known as Vibro Liposuction, is a cutting-edge solution designed to help you achieve the body you’ve always dreamed of with greater comfort and precision than ever before. This type of Liposuction uses vibration to move the device used to remove the fat. The type of vibration was designed by European scientists to greatly reduce the risk of uneven fat removal, which can be a problem with liposuction. This makes unevenness or “rippling” much less likely with Vibro Lipo. Vibration also makes it easier and faster to remove the fat – resulting in a more complete reduction of the fat. It’s one of the most efficient ways to eliminate the highest amount of fat.
Vibro Lipo also goes under the names of “Tickle Lipo” and “Air-Sculpt”. It also makes it easier for the physician to provide local anesthesia for patients with more fibrous tissue or patients who’ve previously had cosmetic surgery. Dr. Johnson at Innovations Medical was the first practice in the United States to use Vibro Lipo. Dr. Johnson has performed over 4,000 cases using the device.
How Does Tickle/Vibro Liposuction Work?
Tickle Liposuction, also called Vibro Liposuction, is an advanced, minimally invasive procedure that combines the benefits of traditional liposuction with an innovative vibrational and tickling motion. This unique approach significantly improves the ease and efficiency of fat removal.
The procedure involves the following steps:
- Anesthesia: Before the procedure, local or tumescent anesthesia is administered to numb the target area, ensuring a comfortable experience.
- Tiny Incisions: Small incisions (about the size of a grain of rice) are made in the target area, allowing the insertion of a thin cannula or tube.
- Vibrational Movement: The cannula is equipped with a vibrating tip, which generates a tickling sensation and makes the fat cells loosen and break apart.
- Fat Removal: The loosened fat cells are gently suctioned out of the body, effectively sculpting and contouring the area.
The entire procedure is known for its precision and minimal discomfort, allowing faster recovery times than traditional liposuction.
Advantages and Benefits of Tickle/Vibro Liposuction
- Minimally Invasive: Tickle Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure, which means smaller incisions, reduced scarring, and a quicker recovery time compared to more invasive surgical options.
- Enhanced Comfort: The gentle vibrating and tickling motion during the procedure minimizes discomfort, allowing patients to undergo the treatment with ease.
- High Precision: The vibrational technology enhances the precision of fat removal, resulting in smoother and more natural-looking body contours.
- Versatile: Tickle Liposuction can treat various body areas, including the abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, buttocks, and more.
- Quick Recovery: Most patients experience a faster recovery than traditional liposuction, enabling them to return to their daily activities sooner.
- Reduced Bruising and Swelling: The vibrational motion helps minimize tissue trauma, leading to less bruising and swelling during recovery.
- Local Anesthesia: Tickle Liposuction is often performed under local anesthesia, reducing the risks and costs associated with general anesthesia.
- Natural Results: The vibrational technology preserves the viability of harvested fat cells, making them suitable for fat transfer procedures, such as natural breast augmentation or Brazilian Butt Lifts.
How Much Does Tickle Liposuction Cost?
The cost of Tickle Liposuction can vary based on several factors, including the areas treated, the amount of fat to be removed, the geographic location of the clinic, and the experience of the surgeon. On average, Tickle Liposuction can range from a few thousand to several thousand dollars.
Ideal Candidates for Tickle Liposuction
Tickle Liposuction suits many individuals seeking to remove unwanted fat and achieve a more sculpted appearance. However, ideal candidates often have the following characteristics:
- Good General Health: Candidates should have good overall health and no uncontrolled medical conditions.
- Close to Their Ideal Weight: Tickle Liposuction is a body contouring procedure, not a weight loss solution. Ideal candidates are close to their target weight but have localized pockets of fat that do not respond to diet and exercise.
- Realistic Expectations: Patients should have realistic expectations about the procedure’s outcomes and understand its limitations.
- Stable Weight: Candidates should maintain a stable weight for several months before the procedure to ensure the longevity of results.
- Non-Smokers: Non-smokers are preferred, as smoking can interfere with the healing process.
- Loose Skin: Candidates with good skin elasticity are usually better candidates, as the skin will conform to the newly contoured areas more effectively.
FAQs About Tickle Liposuction
Is Tickle Liposuction Painful?
The vibrating and tickling motion during Tickle Liposuction minimizes discomfort significantly, and local anesthesia is often used to numb the area, making the procedure well-tolerated by most patients. Some patients may experience mild soreness or discomfort during recovery, but it is generally manageable with over-the-counter pain medications.
How Long Is the Recovery Period for Tickle Liposuction?
The recovery period for Tickle Liposuction is typically shorter than traditional liposuction. Most patients can return to normal activities within a few days to a week, depending on the procedure’s extent and healing process.
Can Tickle Liposuction Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes, Tickle Liposuction can be combined with other cosmetic procedures, such as fat transfer, natural breast augmentation, or Brazilian Butt Lift, to achieve more comprehensive body contouring goals.
How Long Do Tickle Liposuction Results Last?
The results of Tickle Liposuction can be long-lasting if you maintain a stable weight and a healthy lifestyle. The removed fat cells do not return, but the remaining fat cells can expand if you gain weight.
Are There Any Risks Associated with Tickle Liposuction?
Like any surgical procedure, there are potential risks associated with Tickle Liposuction. These may include infection, bleeding, uneven contours, or skin irregularities. Choosing a qualiﬁed and experienced surgeon can help minimize these risks.
Tickle Liposuction, also known as Vibro Liposuction, offers a modern and comfortable approach to body contouring, enabling individuals to achieve their desired physique with greater ease and precision. With its minimally invasive nature, quick recovery, and natural-looking results, Tickle Liposuction is gaining recognition as a versatile and effective body sculpting option.
Before pursuing Tickle Liposuction, it’s important to consult with a board-certiﬁed plastic surgeon to determine your suitability and discuss your goals and expectations. With the right surgeon and proper aftercare, you can enjoy the benefits of a more sculpted and contoured body, boosting your self-conﬁdence and overall well-being.
