4 Health Benefits of Tickle Lipo

Scott Brandt, M.D. Tickle Lipo, Weight Management

Liposculpture is commonly perceived as a procedure with benefits limited to contour improvement and quick weight loss. What are often overlooked are the positive health benefits of tickle lipo, an out-patient procedure offered at ThriveMD’s Vail Valley clinic. In this article, we are going to provide an overview of these health benefits. The following information is based on both external research and our own practice experience.

1. Reduction in Harmful Blood Fat After Tickle Lipo

A plastic surgery study by World of Health Online quoted in LA Times suggests “the cosmetic procedure that removes fat from well-padded areas of the body may also reduce harmful fat circulating in the blood.” Serum triglycerides, were reduced by 43% among patients suffering from high triglyceride levels. The reduction is significantly greater than what is commonly achieved by cholesterol -lowering drugs. The findings support other studies claiming that fat deposited underneath the skin, which can be removed by Tickle Lipo, has a considerable metabolic role. There is a need for more research in the area, but the current findings lead to conclusions that Tickle Lipo decreases risks of “heart disease, stroke, diabetes”.

2. Reduction in Inflammatory Cells

In the same study, liposculpture was also found to decrease the count of inflammatory white cells. This additional finding is another potential reason that liposculpture may lead to a decreased risk of heart (cardiovascular) disease. The combination of lowering both trigylcerides and inflammation shows that there is a powerful cardiovascular benefit to liposuction.

3. Boost of Healthy Lifestyle

What is very common to see among patients after their Tickle Lipo procedure is a boost to their health as a result of both psychological and physical changes. Some of the change in psychological outlook comes from the positive feedback from friends and colleagues. People have the tendency to appreciate others’ concern about their own health and appearance. The patient may feel more attractive, enjoy increased confidence, have better work environment interaction, and an improved sex life. Additionally, we find psychological health benefits to quickly translate into a boost of motivation. Patients that have long felt stuck in their unhealthy routines may now embrace new healthy eating and exercising habits.

4. Boost of Mobility

A powerful physical health benefit of Tickle Lipo is improved mobility. Fat deposits around hips, other joints, and the abdominal area are now smaller and no longer restrain the patient from physical activity. Many patients can enjoy activities they could not engage in for years, or participate in sports they have not tried before. The fact that our clinic is based in the Vail Valley, where sports and recreation are an integral part of our social life, we see the physical benefit as a major contributor to increased quality of life. As our colleagues in the Tickle Lipo field note, Tickle Lipo patients walk with better posture and increased comfort.

More About Tickle Lipo

Tickle Lipo is a popular term for Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture. The procedure, originating in Europe, is minimally invasive and uses an innovative low frequency, infrasonic vibration to remove the most stubborn and unwanted fat. This technique allows for excellent fat removal without damaging any of the surrounding tissues. Patients who enjoy this procedure range from those that have had years of troubling areas of unwanted fat, to those that exercise often but just cannot get rid of the extra inch. At ThriveMD, we treat both male and female patients.

Individual patient results may vary, and so to make sure that patients are happy with the results of their Tickle Lipo procedure, it is important to undergo a one-on-one consultation prior to making a decision. Post procedure, patients are followed clinically to assure maximum benefits are achieved.

I just wanted to give an update regarding the stem cell procedure performed by Dr. Brandt at Thrive about 3 years ago. My range of motion continues to improve--remarkable at 64.I skied 150k in 5 days last week and never iced my knee once. I can't remember skiing that many feet w/out having to ice in the last 20 years. The knee treated has been without an acl since I was 18 and is pretty severely arthritic,but I am getting better performance now than I have in recent memory. Thank you, Dr. Brandt!!

Great job by the Thrive MD team in Edwards. With a torn achilles tendon, I was really opposed to surgery. When I discovered Dr. Brandt and team, I was thrilled. They are most professional and explained every step of the process and procedure for treatment options. I am on the road to recovery, and I am so thankful to have discovered Thrive. Before you let an orthopedic doc operate, take the time to explore and discuss stem cell therapy. Thrive MD made the process easy and convenient. Thanks! One year later update - ankle is doing great. Skied 52 days in 2015-16. Hiking, biking and all are no problem. Great team of caring people who know their business.

After struggling with an Achilles injury for 1 1/2 years and trying everything to heal it - steroid, physical therapy, wearing a boot, no activity, stretching, etc - I decided to have stem cell therapy at It was a short procedure and an afternoon of post op recovery, which after 6-8 weeks, resulted in a full recovery from my injury. This seemed to finally stimulate blood flow and healing to an injury I had resigned myself to having forever. I highly recommend this procedure for tendon injuries like this one.

I saw Dr Brandt on 8/8/16 for a lower back stem cell injection. From the injection, I got a serious infection in my lower spine. As a result, I spent 2 days in the Vail hospital and have been on daily IV antibiotics for the past 8 weeks. A few weeks after the injection, I started feeling increased pain which was a different pain than before my injection. It was much sharper and a shooting pain. I communicated this information to Dr Brandt and his staff. There only response and treatment was stronger pain meds. oral and injected steroids (the worst thing to do when an infection is present). The pain became so intense and debilitating, I finally made an appointment with an orthopedic surgeon. Their team quickly discovered from listening to my symptoms and reviewing a new MRI that I had an infection. I also discovered from a search on DORA that over the past 13 years Dr Brandt's has a history of incidents with the DORA which regulates medical professionals. Over this time, his license was suspended for a period of time and is he currently practicing on probation through 2019. At one point, the AG said he was unfit to practice medicine.

I am a pain management physician myself. I am 52, and physically very active. I still play soccer competitively. Six months ago I suffered a hip injury with a labrum tear. Due to the pre-existing wear and tear, the only conventional treatment, which was offered to me was total hip replacement. I wanted to remain physically active and continue to play sports, so I decided that this is not the best option for me. I choose instead to try stem-cell therapy. Ten days ago I had my procedure done by Dr. Brandt, and since then I have nothing but positive things to say about him and his practice. Everyone in his office was extremely welcoming and put me at ease and comfort about my procedure. The procedure went very smooth. And I did not have ANY post procedure pain or discomfort. I had no need for any pain medication. I was back to work seeing patients on the 2nd day after the procedure. My hip already feels noticeably better. I have the second procedure scheduled in four weeks, and I am confident that in another 3-4 weeks I'll be back playing soccer again. Thank you, Dr. Brandt and team for taking such excellent care of me.
