The “Tickle Lipo,” trademarked as NIL for Notational Infrasonic Liposuction, a system in which the cannula vibrates sub-sonically with a specific swirling motion so no heat is generated. The advantages: discomfort is reduced so general anesthesia is often not necessary; less post-operative swelling and bruising; recovery time is reduced; the procedure takes about 25% less time to perform, and stem cells are maximally preserved. The pain reduction is due to the “Gateway phenomenon.” The cannula’s vibration occupies the nerves leaving less room for pain impulses to reach the brain. The word “Tickle” was adopted because many patients say it actually tickles.
The increase in fat-derived stem cell survival is important for my practice because of the number of fat transfers performed in my practice for rejuvenation of the face, hands, buttocks, and breast reconstruction.
An independent study from Belgium comparing liposuction techniques has concluded that the Tickle Lipo is the most effective liposuction technique with the least risk of unsatisfactory results, which is why I use it exclusively in my practice.
