Liposuction removes fatty tissue from a specific area of the body to achieve desirable results that may not be possible with diet and exercise alone. It’s a way of sculpting certain areas of the body that do not seem to respond to traditional fat-reduction methods. Dr. Hall understands the rewards and limitations of liposuction and makes every patient feel comfortable about their decision.
Is Liposuction Right for You?
As with any surgical procedure, liposuction should not be entered into lightly and should only be considered after consulting with a qualified plastic surgeon. For those seeking to enhance their body image with a toned, sculpted look, liposuction can be very beneficial. Ideal candidates are healthy, non-smokers in the near-range of their optimum body-weight with good skin elasticity and muscle tone, and a realistic vision of what they hope to achieve.
- A great solution for providing improved contouring and a tighter, more toned appearance
- Often used in tandem with other cosmetic procedures like a facelift or tummy tuck
- Not an obesity treatment or a replacement for proper diet and exercise
The Latest Advancement in Liposuction: 6th Generation Tickle Lipo
How it Works: Custom Acoustic Liposuction, often referred to as “Tickle Lipo”, differs from other methods of liposuction because the cannula uses air pressure to create a 3-D infrasonic movement (vibrating and gently twirling). Tickle Lipo’s unique cannula provides Turbo Infiltration of the tumescent solution, a technique that is appealing for the patient because it means better disbursement of tumescent solution, 25 percent faster numbing, less discomfort and quicker recovery. At Hall Plastic Surgery & Rejuvenation MedSpa we strive to bring patients the most advanced technology available to give patients the safest and best results. Ask our office for more information on Tickle Lipo and if this procedure is right for you.
Benefits of Tickle Lipo
- Procedure in many cases may be performed while patient is awake so no general anesthesia is necessary
- Bruising is lessened
- Less pain during procedure
- Faster recovery
BodyTite: Minimally-Invasive Treatments For Contouring
BodyTite is a technology developed by InMode to contour the body without large surgical scars or lengthy downtime. This treatment delivers directional radio frequency energy to the tissues that cause a tightening effect which studies report up to a 36% tissue contraction. These results previously were only achievable by surgical excision. BodyTite is used to treat larger areas of the body such as the stomach, flanks, breasts, thighs, and arms. FaceTite is used to treat smaller areas such as the face, neck, knees, and axillary breasts. They are safe, effective and exciting treatments that offer patients significant aesthetic changes.
TickleTite: The Next Evolution In Body Contouring
TickleLipo and BodyTite are two body contouring technologies that Dr. Hall has combined to get the best of both treatments in one. Some patients need both volume reduction and tissue tightening in certain areas of the body such as the abdomen and flanks. The results can be improved by treating the volume with liposuction and loose skin with radio frequency tightening. TickleLipo is used to reshape the fat layer with custom acoustic liposuction and the BodyTite is then used to tighten the overlying skin to enhance the reshaping. With the addition of BodyTite, the amount of skin tightening is maximized and lessens the chance of loose skin. Dr. Hall has termed the treatment as TickleTite.
BodyTite: Tighter Skin, Contoured Skin for a More Confident Life
While it’s effective as a body sculpting procedure, BodyTite is especially notable for its incredible depth of treatment and minimal risk of scarring. During procedures like breast lifts and brachioplasty, BodyTite makes it possible for Dr. Hall to ensure outstanding results without unwanted scars.
How it Works
BodyTite is designed for both internal and external lipolysis. Before the advent of BodyTite, people who wanted similar results had to undergo much more extensive surgical procedures, which left behind undesirable scars.
Today, however, BodyTite eliminates the need for multiple invasive procedures. By utilizing RFAL, or Radio-Frequency Assisted Lipolysis, BodyTite creates a unique and highly effective three-dimensional contraction of the dermis. What’s more, since BodyTite can offer a 50mm (2”) depth of treatment, it’s especially effective in hard-to-contour areas that require precision.
BodyTite initiates contractions in both the subdermal connective tissue and the deep fat tissues, and creates uniform heat, which it then dispenses throughout the body’s soft tissue matrix. These functionalities create widespread results and long-lasting skin tightening and contouring.
In addition to being effective, BodyTite offers built-in safety mechanisms. These include real-time skin temperature measurements, impedance monitoring, rapid power cut-off availability, and audible feedback – all of which are designed to help ensure patient safety and comfort throughout the procedure.
Being at the forefront of aesthetic innovation, a new BodyTite cannula has been developed by InMode Aesthetic Solutions to deliver expanded power up to 40 watts. This additional power allows the treatment to be done more efficiently and in less time. Hall Plastic Surgery is one of the first in the Austin area to offer this new technological advancement.
