The Cosmetic Non-Surgical Revolution

There’s now a way to take care of almost any body problem you want to change – from head to toe – with many non-surgical procedures. You’re no longer limited to just plastic surgery on the face.

If you don’t want to change the way you look, but you do want to maintain your natural beauty and keep it tuned up without going under the knife, there are many non-surgical treatments and procedures available.

For example, there is the amazing anti-aging non-surgical cosmetic procedure called Venus Freeze, which lifts and plumps the face.

Take a look at how this helped America’s Top Model winner – Sophie Sumner – who visited the MBeauty by Dr. Tess clinic in Glendale. This San Diego Living segment also shows amazing before and after photos of the Tickle Lipo procedure – for both men and women.

Tickle Liposuction Best for Body Sculpting – An Interview

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!

Patients and Physicians Enjoy the Ease of Tickle Lipo

One of the newest devices for body contouring isn’t a laser or ultrasound or radio frequency device. Rather it’s Tickle Lipo and many patients and physicians are very impressed by this device that uses movement rather than heat to make fat easier to remove.

“I’m just so excited about TickleLipo,” says Dr. Tess Mauricio who performs Tickle Lipo in San Diego. “I’m really pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to perform and how happy the patients are. Areas that were very difficult to treat with liposculpture such as the arms and the thighs are made so much better with the Tickle Lipo.” Dr. Mauricio describes that the device removes fat cells in a three dimensional way. With traditional liposuction, the cannula would move in a linear manner, making it difficult to remove a three dimensional amount of volume. That is much easier with the TickleLipo. “It’s a lot smoother and it’s a lot easier to shape so I’m a lot more confident when I talk to my patients. I can assure them that we’re going to get really smooth results. It’s the key to creating a great lipo result,” says Dr. Mauricio.
