Lunchtime Lipo | Tickle Lipo

Minimally Invasive Fat Reduction in NYC

Losing stubborn fat is not an easy task, and with a busy New York schedule, you can’t always find the time to spend hours in the gym or in the kitchen preparing  “light” meals every single day.  If you have succeeded in losing some weight, but have hit a wall with specific areas of problem fat, our Lunchtime Lipo procedure is designed with the New York man and woman in mind. Using a less invasive approach than traditional liposuction, Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega can help you to achieve your ideal body while minimizing the time you spend recovering.

What is Lunchtime Lipo? What is Tickle Lipo?

Lunchtime Lipo or Tickle Lipo refers to a type of liposuction done under local anesthesia with very little trauma to the surrounding tissue. This less invasive, faster form of liposuction uses a heat-free, laser-free oscillating wand to safely and easily remove excess fat from the body with less blood loss and faster healing.

The term Tickle Lipo comes from the vibrating cannula wand that tricks pain receptors and actually causes a tickling sensation.

Is Tickle Lipo or Lunchtime Lipo right for me?

Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega recommend this FDA-approved liposuction procedure for healthy, active men and women who want to quickly remove fat and sculpt specific problem areas. Tickle Lipo is highly effective and safe, and is perfect for addressing excess fat in the thighs, hips, saddlebags, buttocks, stomach, love handles, arms, back, chest, ankles, and calves. Tickle Lipo causes little or no discomfort and is fast, immediate, and cost effective.

Tickle Lipo Facts and Important Information

How soon can I have Tickle Lipo?

Following your consultation and medical clearance with Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega, your Tickle Lipo appointment can be scheduled at your convenience.

How soon will I see results after Tickle Lipo?

You will leave your Tickle Lipo appointment enjoying immediate benefits. In the days following your procedure, your Tickle Lipo results will become even more enhanced as you continue to heal and tone. Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega assure that you will be highly pleased with your new shape and the natural, slimmer enhancements.

How should I prepare for Tickle Lipo?

Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega will provide you with thorough preparation guidelines that include the avoidance of blood thinning medication and NSAIDs such as Advil® or ibuprofen, Aleve®, and aspirin.

For safety reasons, you should arrange for a ride home or back to your office. You will be most comfortable in loose-fitting clothing. You will be required to quit smoking two weeks before and after your procedure.

How is Tickle Lipo performed?

When choosing New Look New Life Surgical Arts,  you can be assured of the consistency and quality of Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega’s hands-on care before, during, and after the procedure.

With only mild, local anesthesia, your New York cosmetic surgeon will use the unique vibrating cannula wand to systematically disrupt and remove fat cells. The procedure is practically pain-free and you may even feel as if you’re being tickled.  

How long is a typical Tickle Lipo procedure?

Tickle Lipo is quick and easy. For that reason, Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega often refer to it as Lunchtime Lipo. While the decision to have liposuction should not be taken lightly, Tickle Lipo is a highly effective and very safe way to address problem areas in a short amount of time, with very fast results and recovery. The procedure usually takes only about an hour.

Do I have to stay overnight after Tickle Lipo?

Absolutely not—that’s part of the beauty of this innovative contouring and fat reducing technique. Come during lunch and you’ll be back at your desk in just a few hours. Or, you can head home for a relaxing afternoon and wake up to a refreshed, new you.

How long does Tickle Lipo recovery take?

Recovery from Lunchtime Lipo or Tickle Lipo is very quick. You will see more improvement each day as your swelling subsides and your skin heals and tones. Complete recovery can be expected in just a few short weeks, and you can resume your normal routine immediately.

Can I exercise after Tickle Lipo?

To ensure complete healing, Dr. Karlinsky and Dr. Vega advise patients to wait about a week before returning to strenuous exercise. You will feel well enough to walk or do other light cardio right away.

Are there any risks with Tickle Lipo?

While immediate and easy results may sound too good to be true, Tickle Lipo is FDA-approved and very safe. The special cannula moves easily through fat cells, causing minimal disruption to the tissue and blood vessels. As with all liposuction procedures, Tickle Lipo risks may include bleeding or infection, and minor skin irregularities upon healing. Complete risks will be discussed during your consultation.

Patients experiencing any unusual or concerning symptoms are advised to call Dr. Karlinsky or Dr. Vega’s cell phone immediately.

How long do Tickle Lipo results last?

Tickle Lipo results are long-lasting (*). The fat that is removed through liposuction does not reappear or re-grow. Should you gain weight after the procedure, you may notice excess fat in other parts of your body. Our team urges patients to maintain a healthy weight and stay dedicated to eating right and exercising regularly to prolong satisfaction with their newly sculpted body.
