How Does Tickle Liposuction Work

After the patient is locally anesthetized using the tumescent liposuction technique, a cannula attached to a handle is inserted into the subcutaneous tissue by making a small incision in the skin. Once the cannula is introduced into the fat layer, compressed air is transmitted to the tip of the cannula creating a 10-hertz frequency, that causes the cannula to rotate and vibrate. The vibratory motion causes a tickling sensation, hence the name “Tickle Lipo”, furthermore the vibratory motion of the tip of the cannula goes through the fat layers easily, causing minimal to no pain, or bleeding.
