Tickle Lipo Article and Special Offer

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.

Fit Better in Your Cute Jeans

If you are longing to look better in your cute jeans and having trouble meeting that goal, you might be surprised at the technology that is available to you. There are NEW techniques in liposculpture that offer a gentler, kinder and absolutely safer technique for removing unwanted fat. If this sounds like something you may be interested in, call us to discuss how Tumescent liposculpture assisted by Lipolite laser lipolysis can work for you.

This technique has three important parts:
Step 1: Tumescent fluid is used to bathe the areas to be treated. Tumescent fluid is a very dilute mixture of saline with lidocaine (an anesthetic) and epinephrine (to close off the blood vessels around fat cells). This important step adds additional time and effort on the surgeon’s part but is well worth it for the patients. The use of tumescent anesthetic minimizes bleeding during the procedure making it so much safer. It also decreases bruising and leads to shorter recovery time.

Step 2: Liposculpture is performed with the use of very small “cannulas” or metal tubes. These tubes are as small as the tip on a pen, which is a major advance in technology. They are connected to a suction tube to pull the fat out. Because they are so small, we no longer have to make large openings to do the procedure, so, the scars left are very small. So small, in fact, that they do not even require stitches. This allows us to deliver amazingly precise sculpting minimizing the risk for irregularities (lumpiness) and allows for more smooth results. It also ensures less trauma during the procedure which leads to less bruising and faster recovery.

Step 3: “Lipolite” laser lipolysis – is the latest in laser lipolysis (like Smart Lipo). With Lipolite, a special tiny cannula with a laser tip is inserted in the openings made for liposculpture and the areas are heated using the laser. This provides more coagulation so there is less bleeding, less bruising, faster recovery. Another important advantage is that heating the skin during liposculpture will allow for better skin contraction. For older patients at risk for loose skin after lipo, Lipolite is a major advance.

So if you are longingly looking at those cute jeans and wishing you could fit in them, give us a call. Scripps Ranch Dermatology & Cosmetic Center can help. Here’s to YOU, at your best!

Rejuvenation is No Longer Just for Women

Actual Patient Photos - Before

Actual Patient Photos - Before Tumescent Liposculpture

Society may be kinder to men when it comes to aging, but no one is immune to the effects of time. Now more than ever, men are feeling younger, living healthier and continue to be active in the workplace and dating scene well into their 50’s, 60’s and beyond. These men want the way they feel on the inside to match the way they look on the outside.

The number of men seeking cosmetic procedures is on the rise. All the time-tested, safe, effective, no-downtime procedures that women have been taking advantage of are now available to men as well. We can give men the natural appearing results they want – without anyone else knowing they are getting cosmetic treatments.

Signs of sun damage and aging on the skin can be erased with elos laser treatments like Aurora, Polaris and ReFirme. Wrinkles, acne scars and skin sagging can be improved with a series of Fraxel treatment or laser skin resurfacing. Botox and fillers like Restylane alone or in combination can flatten wrinkles and take years off almost instantly! Of course unwanted body hair or ingrown facial hair need no longer be a concern with quick and effective laser hair removal.

Our options are more than skin deep. Ever wanted a perfect six pack and that “cut” look to your body? Liposculpture can make it possible, ONCE AND FOR ALL. In this simple and safe procedure, fat is permanently removed from bulges and problem areas that even intense diet and exercise can’t help. More than half of the liposculpture procedures we have performed in the past few months were on male necks, abdomens, love handles and chests!

Whatever you may want to improve, change, or take care of – there is no better time than now. Men – it’s finally your turn.

Testimonial from James (shown in photos)

“Dr. Mauricio, I will never be able to fully express how grateful I am for the artistic way you have sculptured my physique. The difference between my before and after photos show your amazing skills at transforming the human body. Not only do I look great, I feel great. I now demonstrate a renewed confidence and uplifted spirit in my day to day life that actually attracts people to me like never before.

The skills and deep concern for your patient’s physical and mental well-being demonstrated by you and your staff go way more than skin deep. Thank you so much for what you have done for my life. You are the premier doctor in this field.”

Very truly always your patient, James B. (Tumescent Liposculpture)
