What Is Tickle Lipo

Tickle Lipo, also known as N.I.L. (Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture) originated in Europe. This innovative liposculpture technology sets itself apart from traditional liposuction in many ways.  There is a safety feature in place to ensure non-fatty tissue is not damaged.  No heat or ultrasound is used. Rather the infrasonic energy ensures healthy tissue remains for better skin retraction.

Benefits of Tickle Lipo

Tickle lipo has significant benefits and advantages over traditional forms of liposuction.

The state-of-the-art technology allows for meticulous body sculpting with little to no discomfort and faster recovery time.

Modern technology, paired with the experience of Dr. Scott Brandt, ensures a comfortable and safe procedure without the need for a general anesthetic.

Removal of Unwanted Fat

This new form of gentle, minimally invasive cosmetic surgery uses a low frequency infrasonic vibration that removes difficult unwanted fat. The state-of-the-art device liquefies and removes your fat cells without damaging the surrounding tissue.

Faster Than Traditional Liposuction

The 3-D cannula motion also assists in the painless delivery of local anesthesia, decreased procedural discomfort, and shortened treatment times. The unique vibrating cannula creates a rotational vibration which speeds up the liposculpture procedure, thus making Tickle Lipo 25% faster than many traditional liposuction treatments.

Almost Pain-Free – Experience a Tickle Sensation

Are you wondering ‘How can this liposculpture procedure be performed without general anesthesia?’ It’s due to the 10Hz frequency of the infrasonic vibration. This unique vibration disrupts the sensation of painful stimuli by activating the nerves that block the transmission of pain signals. These fibers are blocked from sending pain signals to your brain. As a result you will feel much more at ease and experience more of a tickling sensation.

The tickling sensation, that often causes giggling during the treatment, is known as “The Gate Control Theory”. The Gate Control Theory suggests that our spinal cords contain a neurological “gateway” that either blocks pain signals or allows them to pass on to the brain.

Better in Contouring & Smoother in Results

Tickle Lipo doesn’t use heat or ultrasound, like some liposuction procedures (which sometimes causes uneven appearances after liposuction). Instead, Tickle Liposuction uses advanced infrasonic energy to break down fat cells. This new innovative technology immediately shuts off when non-fatty tissue is contacted, ensuring only fat destruction.

These added benefits of Tickle Lipo contribute to greater contouring abilities, smoother results, reduced swelling and less bruising.


While utilizing the innovative infrasonic energy to break down fat cells, this state of the art technology will immediately shut off if non-fatty tissue is contacted, ensuring only fat destruction. This safety feature ensures patients a relaxed and effective treatment.

Health Boosting

Fat loss has a number of documented health benefits. These can include a reduction in serum triglyceride levels, a decrease in circulating inflammatory cells, and boost of mobility.

The Tickle Lipo Procedure


An initial consultation visit will take place with your doctor to discuss treatment areas, expected goals, pre-existing conditions, and any previous procedures. Your current health, nutritional needs, wellness history, previous treatments and body composition will all be taken into consideration to provide you with the best overall care and results. The consultation is free.

The Sculpting Procedure

Tickle Lipo is a minimally invasive procedure taking approximately 2 to 3 hours. Small 3 mm incisions will be made and a numbing tumescent fluid will be applied using the medically advanced Tickle Lipo cannula. Once the area is completely numb, your doctor will activate the Tickle Lipo vibrating cannula, strategically designed for meticulously sculpting fat removal.


Pain is typically minimal and an over the counter pain reliever can be taken. If you have further discomfort, your doctor can prescribe you pain medication to make your recovery time more comfortable.

You are encouraged to move around, walk and resume regular daily activities the next day.

You will be required to wear a compression garment for approximately 8 weeks. These garments help re-seat the skin to help achieve optimal clinical results.

Tickle Liposuction results will be noticed right after your treatment and tend to further improve after initial swelling subsides. Contouring improvements can be continued to be seen for up to six months, provided you sustain a well balanced diet and maintain regular physical activities.

Things to Avoid

Exercise should be avoided for one to two weeks to ensure optimal healing results.

Do not soak in a bath or hot tub for one week following the procedure. You will want to keep your incisions clean to avoid any infection and minimize scarring.

Pain is typically minimal and an over the counter pain reliever can be taken. You are encouraged to move around, walk and resume regular daily activities the next day.

“I always wanted to address my stomach fat problem. I am 5.4 and weigh 148 I have a short waist and my body type deposits fat more in my waist, the pressure on my organs under my ribs always made me uncomfortable so I asked if we could do a full belly lipo and we did. No pain whatsoever, I could feel the relief as the fat weight was being removed from sternum as they did it.”
