Graper Cosmetic Surgery Becomes the Only Practice in North Carolina to Offer Tickle Lipo

August 11, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Health News
Dr. Robert Graper of Graper Cosmetic Surgery in Charlotte becomes the first plastic surgeon in North Carolina to offer Tickle Lipo, a new generation of minimally invasive liposuction. Originally developed in Europe, this recently FDA-approved procedure swiftly removes localized fat deposits from various parts of the body with minimal downtime.

Recognizing the unique patient benefits of Tickle Lipo, Dr. Graper is pleased to be the only Charlotte cosmetic surgeon with the ability to deliver stunning aesthetic results while promoting increased patient safety and comfortable, pain-free fat removal without the need for general anesthesia. Tickle Lipo leads to quick and smooth recovery, less tissue trauma and bruising and immediate results that continue to improve for up to six months.

Tickle Lipo is performed at Dr. Graper's plastic surgery Charlotte practice via a vibrating cannula and small incisions in the skin. The leading-edge Tickle Lipo cannula simultaneously delivers local anesthesia while loosening and suctioning excess fat cells from the treatment area. The infrasonic energy of the Tickle Lipo preserves healthy tissue for better skin retraction after the procedure while its vibrating feature acts as a pain blocker.

Tickle Lipo requires little or no recovery and patients can resume their daily activities right after their treatment sessions, which generally lasts one to two hours, depending on the size of the treatment area.

For more information on Tickle Lipo or to watch a video of the procedure, please visit Dr. Graper's website at Tickle Lipo consultations can be scheduled by calling (704) 375-7111.
