The Tickle Liposuction Method
Tickle Liposuction is an innovative and effective approach to getting rid of unwanted Fat
Q: Are there any advantages with Tickle Liposuction over traditional liposuction or energy-based liposuctions such as laser liposuctions or radio-wave or ultrasonic liposuction?
A: Yes, My history of liposuction goes back to 1982 when I read an article on liposuction. No one in the southeast was doing them at that time, and I had to order my cannulas from Germany. They were huge and had cutting edges. Still, the results made patients very happy. We have graduated to tumescent liposuction, smaller, more effective, and safer cannulas, and better postoperative instructions which have made liposuction the most popular and safest procedure performed by plastic surgeons.
For the last few years, energy-based liposuctions were invented and tried, one of the goals being to tighten the skin.
Independent studies have shown that energy-based liposuction is not better than traditional liposuction and add a new list of possible risks because of the heat and burning of the tissues, and the procedures take longer to perform than traditional liposuction, which adds to the cost. Also, they destroy fat-derived Stem Cells. This is very important, as fat transfer/grafting is becoming very popular for re-volumizing the face, eyelids, hands, reconstruction of the breast, cosmetic breast augmentation, and the buttocks (Brazilian Butt Lift).

Fat is very fragile, and much of the fat when grafted does not survive. However, fat-derived stem cells are quite hardy. Concentrating stem cells from the patients’ fat and adding it to the fat that is going to be transferred increases the success of the fat transfer. More of the fat “takes.
