With over 2,000 liposuction procedures under his belt, Dr. Rod is Phoenix’s go-to surgeon when it comes to body sculpting. Liposuction is an excellent tool for helping shape the body and trouble areas when a patient is at or near their ideal weight.
Liposuction is also a good procedure for patients that need to lose weight. Although it’s not a weight loss procedure, it helps kick start continued weight loss with changes that happen in hormonal balance and insulin resistance.

Nearly every type of liposuction uses a surgical cannula, which is a long medical wand that suctions away fat from the areas you and your doctor have decided to treat. Tickle Lipo creates acoustic waves at the tip of a specialized cannula. These waves tease fat cells away from the connective tissue between the skin and the muscle, and the cannula suctions the fat away, removing it permanently.

Even with regular exercise, there can be areas of stubborn fat that are hard to remove. Reshape trouble areas, kick-start weight loss, and reduce fat cells for a more contoured look with liposuction. Find out how you could benefit and schedule a consultation.
After liposuction is complete, patients will be able to leave our Phoenix office immediately afterward. However, they’ll need to return about a week later (as well as three months and six months afterward) so Dr. Rod can check to make sure things are healing correctly.
Because Tickle Lipo is so gentle, most patients won’t experience too much pain; if they do, pain medications will easily control it. This discomfort should fade after about three to five days. Patients should walk around as much as possible but avoid very strenuous activity for around two to six weeks.
