Awake liposuction is now available for patients at the Legacy Plastic Surgery Institute, the home of the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute in west Plano. Tickle liposuction involves utilizing a European system known as Vibroliposuction. This involves using a small cannula, which utilizes nutational movements to cause very little trauma and pain during the procedure, allowing for it to be performed while awake.
While it is a misnomer to think that this is not an invasive surgical procedure, it can be performed with patients being awake quite comfortably. Patients can expect to have between 2.0-2.5 liters of fat removed from the abdomen utilizing this system. The most commonly treated areas for this include the abdomen, love handles, thighs, and arms.
