This Holiday give yourself the Gift of the body you’ve always wanted!
I am a 41 year old woman who recently had liposuction under my chin, abdomen, flanks and back area. After years of wishing my double chin would disappear and wearing blowsy tops to camouflage my lower belly, I decided that I had to do something about it once and for all.
During my teens and twenties I never had to worry about my weight and I was very skinny. When I entered my 30’s, as most of you know or will discover, my body began to change and I had to give in and actually exercise and eat healthy. I began to notice that even if I could squeeze into a size 6, I still had “problem areas.”
No matter how many Zumba classes I took or personal trainers I worked with, I still had a pooch in my lower belly. Another issue that has bothered me for as long as I can remember is the little fat pad under my chin. Double chins run in my family and no matter how much weight I have lost I could not get rid of the localized fat under my chin.
Before choosing, Dr. Tess Mauricio to do my procedures, I spent hours researching plastic surgeons and dermatologists on line. I looked at 100’s of “before and afters.” I asked friends and family if they recommended anyone.
I researched the different types of liposuction and the risks and benefits from choosing one over the other. I spent 8 months thinking about it and finally decided on Dr. Tess. When I met with her and her staff I knew I made the right decision and booked my appointment for tickle liposuction right away.
It has now been 10 weeks since I had liposuction under my chin and abdomen. It has changed the way I think about myself on the outside but more importantly the inside. My husband always tells me I look younger than my age but now he keeps saying things like, “You look like you did when I first met you.”
I am excited about getting my new body in tip top shape. I just ordered workout DVD’s by Tracy Anderson, trainer to Gwyneth Paltrow etc., titled Metamorphosis. The definition of metamorphosis is: a striking alteration in appearance, character, or circumstances.
That is what doing liposuction has done for me. It has jump started my quest for the best self I can be. I am going to get in the best shape of my life, spend time with my beautiful 3 year old daughter and husband and start a new career that I am passionate about. Thank you Dr. Tess.

This is a recent interview that Dr. Tess did with TickleLipo.com:
Tickle Lipo – It’s no secret you’ve been using Tickle Lipo on your patients for several years now. Why did you decide to go with this technology?
Dr. Tess – I began doing traditional liposuction ten years ago. When laser and later, Vaser liposuction, came along I tried both technologies. Once Tickle Lipo came along – I tried it – and I’m so happy that this technology exists. It makes my job easier and generates results that are difficult to achieve with other technologies.
TL – How Is It Different?
Dr. Tess – You are really doing contouring in a three-dimensional way under the skin. When it comes to fine detail, sculpting, which is what I do. I really sculpt the body and I find that Tickle Lipo makes the job much easier. I have a lot better control and a better way to blend in the areas that I’ve done to the areas that are not done. I’m able to do that at a fast pace and with less effort on my part. Patients get much better results and are very happy.
TL – Does It Help With Tummy Tucks?
Dr. Tess – I specialize in larger-volume liposuction. I’m comfortable with removing four liters of fat in one session – and Tickle Lipo is much more efficient for such procedures, meaning you’re not keeping your patient under anesthesia as long. Even with high volume liposuction the areas we treat don’t get the expected loose skin. I believe the Tickle Lipo technique adds to skin tightening or at least, it doesn’t create the loose skin that people worry about.
Some of my patients who have gone to plastic surgeons to investigate tummy tucks are coming in, and we’re removing the equivalent of eight pounds of fat just from their abdomen – without a tummy tuck or getting loose skin.
I tell most patients – in my view, a tummy tuck is really only reserved for patients who have lost maybe 100 pounds or have had significant stretch marks from previous pregnancies. If you don’t have that and have normal skin – and I’ve done Tickle Lipo on patients in their mid-sixties – I really do not see loose skin at all, even though I’m removing many liters of fat. There are a lot of surgeons who are not comfortable with working with larger patients – but that’s a specialty of mine.
TL – And you have your share of revision patients?
Dr. Tess – That’s correct. I think, unfortunately, there a lot of people out there that have had previous liposuction surgery that has left them disfigured and it has placed an emotional strain on them. Because I am able to do a lot of fine sculpting and finessing – and sculpt areas many surgeons don’t want to touch such as the arms, inner thighs, and around the knees – patients feel very comfortable and know they can leave much happier.
TL – You Mention Sculpting. How Important Is That?
Dr. Tess – Because I’m a woman – I think there is something different in how a woman handles a body. My patients get a woman’s touch – an artist’s touch… an expert’s touch. It’s all about creating a physical shape that is ideal. I had one patient – sixty four years old – she went from a size twelve to a size four!
