Improve the contours of your body

Tickle Liposuction

TGA and FDA approved, tickle liposuction is the very latest in fat removal and body sculpting. Internationally known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL), this advanced technology was developed by Euromi in Europe and is designed to complement your liposuction experience. Patient safety, comfort and clinical excellence have been validated by thousands of tickle liposuction patients all around the world.

Why is it called tickle liposuction?

Patients rapidly coined the term tickle lipo because of the tickling sensation experienced during the procedure. Imagine undergoing a surgical procedure expecting pain and then in fact, giggling during the procedure. Most experience this as a side effect of the vibration. The vibration and movement of the tickle lip cannula acts as a pain blocker in the same way that scratching relieves an itch. The process is known as “The Gate Control Theory”.


Leading surgeons have acknowledged that tickle liposuction is revolutionary as it allows them to perform liposuction while the patient is awake. All the while delivering excellent clinical results, safely and comfortably.

Tickle lipo does not generate heat and has an inbuilt safety feature that shuts off the system if non-fatty tissue is encountered. The infrasonic energy used to break up the fatty tissue ensures minimal damage to the fat and surrounding tissue. This leaves the healthy tissue in place for better skin retraction.


Understanding the procedure

Before the procedure, Dr Sawhney will need to know more about the areas you want to treat, what your pain tolerance levels are and whether you have any pre-existing conditions. Tickle lipo is a minimally invasive procedure that takes one to two hours to complete. Through tiny incisions, numbing tumescent fluid is infused with the tissue of the treatment area using a tickle lipo vibrating cannula.

Once numb, Dr Sawhney will use a cannula that’s specially designed for that area of your body to break down and suction out unwanted pockets of fat. The result is smoother contours and fewer problem areas.

Since no general anaesthetic is required, you are able to go home directly after your procedure. It’s still preferred if someone drives you home though.

Liposuction FAQs

The cost of a tickle liposuction procedure will be different for every patient because no two patients have exactly the same requirements. During your consultation with Dr Sawhney, your needs will be evaluated to determine a cost. Facility and surgical fees will also be factored into this final cost. Since liposuction is deemed a cosmetic procedure, patients won’t qualify for a Medicare rebate.

Following your liposuction procedure, Dr Sawhney will dress your incisions and provide you with a compression garment to reduce swelling. This garment will need to be worn for at least six weeks for the best results. In order to collect any excess fluid after your procedure, thin tubes may be placed under the skin for a day or two. Patients are encouraged to take several days off work to recover. Any strenuous activities are best avoided for a week or two. While recovery is fairly straight forward, patients are still encouraged to keep an eye on the incision sites to avoid any complications. Dr Sawhney will take you through all the potential risks and complications during your consultation, ensuring you know exactly what to expect.

The final results of your liposuction procedure will be visible once all swelling has subsided. Patients are encouraged to lead a healthy lifestyle in order to maintain their results over the long term.

Scarring is an inevitable part of any surgical procedure, including liposuction. Fortunately, the incisions required to complete liposuction are very small. This means that any scarring will be barely visible and minimal. There are also steps that you can take to reduce scarring, including avoiding direct sun exposure.

Patients who are considering liposuction will need to be close to or have achieved their ideal weight. Since liposuction is not a weight-loss surgery, this is important. The healthier you are prior to surgery, the less complications you will experience and the smoother your recovery will be. Patients are encouraged to stop smoking for several weeks prior to their surgery and after their procedure to aid the healing process. Dr Sawhney will also provide you with specific preparation instructions based on your lifestyle and any medical considerations.

Yes, it is possible to have a combination surgery but this is something you would need to discuss with Dr Sawhney. Liposuction is often paired with a tummy tuck or body lift to create a shapelier appearance. However, you should be aware that combining procedures will change the dynamics, including time in surgery, recovery time and the final cost.

As with any type of surgical procedure, risks are something to consider. The skills and experience of your surgeon as well as how well you adhere to your aftercare instructions can make a difference though. Some of the common complications associated with liposuction include:

  • Uneven or baggy skin due to poor skin retraction
  • Reduced sensation across the treatment area
  • Changes in skin colour
  • Poor healing and infection

While there is always a chance of more serious complications such as blood clots, this is very rare. Dr Sawhney will explain them to you regardless though.
