Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) November 5, 2010
Today the top-rated national TV show “The Doctors” features a segment on “Body Problem Breakthoughs” including a segment with dermatologist Dr. Sandra Lee and her patient, Luci who hated her “saddlebags”. The show taped Dr. Lee at her Upland, CA office as she performed Tickle Lipo on Luci. About a week later, Dr. Lee and Luci completed taping at The Doctors TV set in Hollywood, where Dr. Lee demonstrated the action of the unique rotating cannula that is used in the Tickle Lipo system.
“Tickle Lipo” allows me to remove more fat in less time and to tighten the skin at the same time,” says Dr. Lee. “My patients remark both during and after the procedure how surprised they are that it is so comfortable and that they can return to their normal activities so quickly.”

Doctors say Tickle Lipo is unique because of the tickling feeling that many patients feel during the procedure, rather than the pain associated with traditional liposuction. A special cannula that produces vibration causes the tickling sensation and tricks the nerves into thinking there's no pain.
But the benefits don't end there. In many procedures, heat or ultrasound can cause swelling, inflammation and longer recovery times. With Tickle Lipo, recovery is faster and patients can be back to work in a day or two. In addition, the physician can harvest the patient’s fat that is removed during liposuction for use as long lasting, even permanent natural facial filler instead of using synthetic injectables.
“Because there is so little downtime, it is a perfect procedure for this economy where many people do not have the ability to take time off work”, says Dr. Daniel Ronel, a board certified plastic surgeon who practices in Santa Fe and Albuquerque, NM. ““As this machine works, it actually puts in the anesthetic solution at the same time as it melts the fat and sucks it out. This makes it nearly painless, extremely quick, and it’s an in-office procedure that patients will be able to walk out of. Also, by having the procedure in-office, it will be notably less expensive because patients won’t have to worry about operating room or anesthesia costs.”
Dr. Timothy Zelko, who practices in Milwaukee and Chicago made the switch from laser based liposuction to Tickle Lipo because he was looking for a way to get great results while avoiding the concerns of thermal injury which have been associated with lasers. He also appreciated that results stay consistent from the end of the procedure until healing is complete. "With the Tickle Lipo, what you leave behind is relatively healthy and viable tissue. So what you see at the time of the procedure isn't going to change
“I am very pleased to be the first physician in Florida to offer this new technique which allows patients to be awake during liposuction,” says Dr. Daniel Man, a board certified plastic surgeon who practices in Boca Raton. “I am finding that Tickle Lipo is superior to other liposuction techniques thanks to its special vibrating cannula which cuts down on surgery time. There is no heat, minimal bruising and minimal downtime. It offers patients better results, and is faster and safer. Patients are very excited about this new procedure.”
