As part of our aesthetic cosmetic procedures, Regenerative Cell Institute offers “Tickle Lipo,” the most innovative fat removal and body sculpting technique. Internationally known as Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL), this FDA-approved procedure provides a safe, comfortable alternative to traditional liposuction.

Dr. Santos performs Tickle Lipo in-office as an out-patient procedure. Patients remain awake and under tumescent local anesthesia.

The Regenerative Cell Institute’s Tickle Lipo body sculpting treatments deliver excellent results, permanently removing fat cells in a safe, comfortable manner.

In addition to the fat removal and body sculpting benefits, Tickle Lipo procedures may be combined with Regenerative Cell Institute’s stem cell therapy treatments. After a patient undergoes Tickle Lipo, the adipose (fat) tissue that is removed can either be used for immediate stem cell harvesting (for use in stem cell therapy procedures) or fat transfer procedures.

Benefits of Tickle Lipo

Tickle Lipo is an innovative, minimally invasive cosmetic liposuction procedure that provides a safe, more comfortable alternative to traditional liposuction. Using a state-of-the-art machine and cannula (the thin tube that is inserted to remove adipose fat tissue), Tickle Lipo uses a low-frequency infrasonic vibration to quickly remove fat cells without damaging surrounding tissue.

Advantages of Tickle Lipo:

  • Meticulous body sculpting.
  • Typically requires no general anesthesia.
  • 25% faster than traditional liposuction procedures.
  • Little to no discomfort.
  • Permanent removal of fat cells.
  • Immediate results.
  • Quicker recovery.
  • Reduced swelling and bruising.
  • Safety features ensure non-fatty tissue isn’t damaged.
  • Infrasonic energy ensures healthy tissues are preserved for better skin retraction.
  • Safe, easy, and affordable.

What to Expect

Before undergoing Tickle Lipo, patients enjoy an initial consultation with Dr. Santos at the Regenerative Cell Institute.

During this one-on-one consultation, Dr. Santos personally evaluates each patient and discusses treatment areas, expected goals, pre-existing conditions, contraindication, pain tolerance, and any previous procedures the patient has undergone.

After assessing the patient’s current health, body composition, and wellness history, Dr. Santos creates a customized Tickle Lipo procedure plan to ensure each patient receives the best overall medical care and optimal results.

Tickle Lipo procedures are minimally invasive and generally last between 1 – 2 hours. Through small 3mm incisions, numbing tumescent fluid is infused into the patient’s tissue via the Tickle Lipo machine’s vibrating cannula. Once the treatment areas are numb, Dr. Santos activates the Tickle Lipo vibrating suction cannula which is specially designed for body sculpting and fat removal.

After the Tickle Lipo procedure is completed, patients remain in recovery for 30 minutes. Pain is typically minimal but patients who experience discomfort are encouraged to take an over-the-counter pain reliever such as Tylenol or Advil. Patients who experience further discomfort may be prescribed pain medication.

Patients are encouraged to walk and resume normal daily activities immediately following the procedure but should refrain from strenuous activities for 2 weeks. Patients are required to wear a medical compression garment for 2-4 weeks to facilitate healing and achieve optimal appearance.

Tickle Lipo results may be seen immediately after initial swelling dissipates (which is generally 2 – 5 days) and continued improvements occur over 3 – 5 months, pending patients, follow a well-balanced diet and exercise regimen.

Fat Transfer

Regenerative Cell Institute offers a variety of fat transfer procedures as part of our aesthetic rejuvenation services.

Using advanced autologous fat transfer techniques and a proprietary method of combining fat and enriched platelet-rich plasma, Dr. Santos utilizes the patient’s own unwanted fat to effectively fill frown lines, laugh lines, and crow’s feet and rejuvenate other parts of the body by using the fat to add volume.

Advantages of Fat Transfer Treatments:

  • Serves as an alternative to invasive cosmetic surgical procedures.
  • Reduced risk of adverse reaction, rejection, or infection.

What To Expect

Dr. Santos personally evaluates each patient to assess their condition and determine the best course of treatment. Once the care plan is in place, unwanted fat is removed from the patient’s abdomen and re-injected into the desired area (face, hands, breasts, or buttocks).

When needed, liposculpture will be used on specific areas of the body to add volume. Our gentle, non-traumatic methods provide patients with a fast recovery with minimal downtime.

Fat transfer procedures are simple, safe, and completed in-office as an outpatient. Treatments can take anywhere from 2 – 4 hours to complete.

Natural Breast Augmentation

Regenerative Cell Institute’s innovative natural breast augmentation technique uses a simple fat transfer procedure to add natural volume and increase breast size. This regenerative breast augmentation procedure is used to restore breast tissue, serves as an alternative to traditional breast implant procedures, and results in more natural-looking breast enhancement.

Using the patient’s own fat cells, which are a rich source of regenerative cells, Dr. Santos offers the most advanced, completely natural method of non-surgical breast enlargement. Fat cells are harvested from the abdomen, hips, or thighs, and used to enhance breast size and shape using a gentle liposuction technique and technology. This also helps to reshape and contour the area of the body from which the fat is being harvested.

Advantages of Natural Breast Augmentation:

  • Naturally Increases breast size and shape.
  • Results in a more natural look and feel.
  • Alleviates the need for implants and their associated risks.
  • Advanced method is among the safest, gentlest method available today.
  • Entire process involves little to no pain/discomfort, no general anesthesia, with faster recovery and little downtime.

Brazilian Butt Lift™ and Augmentation

A Brazilian Butt Lift™ is a butt augmentation procedure that uses liposuction to harvest fat from one or more areas of the body, which is then injected into the butt cheeks. It can address a range of concerns, including flat or sagging buttocks, asymmetry, or other disproportions sometimes due to massive weight loss. This butt augmentation procedure is completed naturally and requires no silicone or general anesthesia.

Advantages of Brazilian Butt Lift™ and Augmentation:

  • Body’s own unwanted fat is used to add dimension to the buttocks.
  • Defines the natural female curvature providing immediate projection to the gluteus area.
  • Alleviates the need for implants and their associated risks.
  • Results in a more natural look and feel.
  • No major incisions or trauma to the body is involved.
  • Does not require general anesthesia.
  • Faster recovery and little downtime.

Hand Rejuvenation

Over time, oils in the skin begin to dry out and lose elasticity, and the skin on our hands begins to wrinkle and thin. Aside from the face, the hands are one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging.

With our hand rejuvenation treatments, we can reduce the visible signs of aging.

Regenerative Cell Institute’s hand rejuvenation procedures are specifically designed to take years off the appearance of the hands by naturally restoring the hands’ volume and skin tightness. With this procedure, hollow areas of the hands are plumped up, the volume is restored to the bony regions, and structure is regained. Regenerative fat transfers make it possible to plump the skin and maintain a younger, more natural appearance.

This painless procedure takes 30 minutes – 1 hour and is performed under local anesthesia. It is safe, effective, and requires little to no downtime.
