One of the most common New Year’s Resolutions is always weight loss. In 2017, there are more diet and lipo options than ever to drop weight and get the body you’ve always wanted. It’s not surprising the media is obsessed with weight loss. More than two in three Americans are overweight or obese, according to the US Department of Health.

It’s a paradox of our generation that we’re simultaneously obsessed with physical beauty and yet more overweight than ever. Shows like The Biggest Loser may be reality TV, but they aren’t realistic. Few people can take a six month break from their jobs and families to focus on their body. Although weight loss is a result of healthy diet and exercise, many people need extra help from lipo to get the look they desire.

In the real world, getting rid of problem areas can be almost impossible without liposuction. An example of this, is the hit show Extreme Weight Loss which routinely shows the importance of plastic surgery as a component in a weight loss transformation. If you have succeeded in losing weight, but have specific areas of problem fat, Dermacare’s Tickle Lipo procedure is a great choice.

What makes Tickle Lipo different than other forms of Liposuction?

Tickle Lipo is a type of liposuction done under local anesthesia with very little trauma to the surrounding tissue. Tickle Lipo is also known as, Nutational Infrasonic Liposuction (NIL) and Nutational Custom Acoustic Liposuction (CAL). This less invasive, faster form of liposuction uses a heat-free, laser-free oscillating wand to safely and easily remove excess fat from the body with less blood loss and faster healing. The term “Tickle Lipo” comes from the vibrating cannula wand that tricks pain receptors and causes a tickling sensation. Or to put another way, Tickle Lipo is the best type of liposuction on the market today.

How do I know if Tickle Lipo is the right form of liposuction in Arizona for me?
When you have your consultation with Dr. Rod, he’ll recommend the best procedure for you. Dr. Rod says, “I take many factors into consideration for this. What’s your BMI (Body Mass Index), how much excess skin do you have, and what type results do you want to achieve. Dermacare recommends this FDA-approved liposuction procedure for patients who want to quickly remove fat and sculpt specific problem areas. Tickle Lipo is perfect for addressing excess fat in the thighs, hips, saddlebags, banana roll (below the buttocks), stomach, love handles, arms, back, chest, and neck. It causes little or no discomfort and is fast, immediate, and affordable. Tickle Lipo can help you achieve your body goals faster and safer than ever before. For some patients with significant loose skin, a tummy tuck may be a better option.

What does Dermacare do to get me ready for my Tickle Lipo procedure?
Although aesthetic companies use marketing terms like “lunch time lipo” Tickle Lipo, like any surgical procedure, requires medical evaluation. The staff of Dermacare will make sure you’re getting the right procedure to achieve your goals. You will be most comfortable in loose-fitting clothing. You will be required to quit smoking two weeks before and after your procedure. We will provide you with complete preparation guidelines that include the avoidance of blood thinning medications like aspirin. For safety reasons, you should arrange for a ride home or back to your office.

What should I expect after my procedure?
Although Tickle Lipo is widely regarded as having a fast recovery, every patient responds to surgery differently. Some patients are back to work two to three days after and others need a little more time to recover. Patients see improvement each day as their swelling goes down and the skin adjusts to the fat loss. Complete recovery varies by patient. Evaluation for final results is determined at the final post operative appointment with Dr. Rod.

How long do Tickle Lipo results last?
If you maintain a decent diet and exercise, the fat tissue that Tickle Lipo removes never comes back! Should you gain weight after the procedure, you may notice excess fat in other parts of your body. Dr. Reza Rod, a board certified plastic surgeon in Phoenix says, “It’s a misconception that liposuction is a weight loss procedure. [Lipo] removes fat and contours stubborn areas of the body but people still have to maintain a healthy lifestyle.”
