The Bougainvillea Clinique is the first facility in Central Florida to introduce Tickle Lipo™ to our patients. Tickle Lipo™ is the first liposuction device based on accepted nerve conduction science that actually enhances our ability to effectively perform liposuction under local anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation.
The Tickle Lipo™ device uses infrasonic nutational vibration to activate vibration sensitive nerve fibers. This results in blocking of the pain fibers. This effect is known as The Gate Control Theory of nerve transmission.
Tickle Lipo™ generates far less heat than other technologies, as it emulsifies fat for easier more gentle removal. This results in increased safety, less discomfort during the procedure, and faster recovery.
From the surgeon's perspective, the Tickle Lipo™ provides increased control and sensitivity, to facilitate smoother and more precise body sculpting. This increased precision allows the surgeon to more confidently treat delicate areas such as the knees, arms, calves, and neck.>
Another reason, we have adopted Tickle Lipo™ is to enhance our ability to gently harvest fat for other uses such as breast augmentation, facial rejuvenation, and stem and regenerative cell processing. Harvesting fat with minimal damage to the fat cells is the first critical step required for successful and predictable fat grafting. Tickle Lipo™ has the advantage over Lipo-jet™ or Aqualipo™ procedures of not excessively diluting the graft with water, which can lead to unpredictable amount of actual fat injected during grafting procedures.
