After much success and many inquiries at the AACS show in Las Vegas in January this year, Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture (NIL), affectionately known as Tickle Lipo for the tickling sensation some patients experience during procedures to reduce fat, was again the focus of discussion at the Cell Society Scientific Event in San Diego February 17-18. The reason for all the buzz about NIL is the quality of adipose fat and ADRC’s (adipose derived regenerative cells) in the harvested fat.
In aesthetic surgery, the quality of fat is a big deal as it helps determine the ability to maintain volume during a fat grafting procedure. Whether it’s using fat harvested for fat loss as a natural facial filler or for a Brazilian butt lift, eliminating the need to “overfill” due to concerns of volume loss is a big deal and may even eliminate the need for a patient to store or bank fat for future procedures. “Most doctors are amazed at the 80-90% retention rate of adipose tissue from a fat graft using our technology” said Greg Miles of Millennium Medical Technologies who has developed a unique process to ensure such results.
The NIL (nutational infrasonic liposculpture) results have been so successful in fact, that many clinical and scientific specialists are doing further testing to validate results, though outcomes have already been clearly documented. At the request of some of these leading physicians, Medical Alliance Services, the North American distributor for Tickle Lipo is undergoingfurther testing in a highly documented clinical study which will result in a peer reviewed paper.
Fat grafting is becoming a huge opportunity in the cosmetic arena and doctors who can get a leg up on their competition will find new and existing patients clamoring at their practice doors. Patients are just discovering how to get rid of belly fat with a little Tickle Lipo and recycle it into a breast augmentation or Brazilian butt lift.

As reported today by Cosmetic Surgery Times and published in the February issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, a new technique involving injections of fat followed by implant placement may prove a viable cosmetic surgery alternative for breast cancer patients who have undergone radiation therapy.
Women who have undergone radiation therapy are usually not considered for reconstructive surgery involving breast implants due to the higher risk of complications. A surgical team at University Hospital in Rome, used liposuction to transfer fat from one part of the body and injects it into the radiation-treated area to create a bed of healthy tissue in the chest wall or remaining breast to receive the implant.
Tested by plastic surgeons over a three-year period with 16 patients who underwent breast cancer surgery followed by radiation therapy. 11 of the patients had a mastectomy and 5 a lumpectomy or other types of breast-conserving surgery. All patients received two or three fat grafts then final reconstruction, including implant placement. Results showed that the final appearance of the reconstructed breasts was rated excellent to good in 94 percent of patients and patient satisfaction was rated high to very high.
Brazilian Butt Lift
This is good news for Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture. N.I.L. (affectionately called “Tickle Lipo” for the tickling sensation some patients experience) has been in the news regarding recent studies reporting the high quality of fat cells used for fat grafting using this technology.
In addition to reconstructive surgery, in combination with lipo, fat grafting has been a common choice for celebrity plastic surgery and is now becoming mainstream for procedures such as the Brazilian Butt Lift.

Patient Benefits of N.I.L. Reinforced in Blog Post
The patient benefits of Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture, affectionately known as “Tickle Lipo” because some patients experience a tickling sensation were reviewed today as part of a blog by Dr. Timothy Zelko, a board certified physician with 24 years experience.
For those who want to get rid of stomach fat or just want to remove fat from various body areas, patients are continuing to demand N.I.L. for their cosmetic solution according to Dr. Zelko because:
A 50-90% reduction from the usual 2 day to 2 week downtime with traditional liposuction methods. With Tickle Lipo the usual downtime is 0-2 days.
This is negligible with Tickle Lipo. Most patients experience occasional pinching discomfort during the procedure. The vast majority of patients are quite comfortable during the procedure.
Decrease Post-op Pain
Up to a 75% reduction in pain. This is scored by a pain scale where 0 is graded as no post op pain to a score of 10 which is the most severe pain. Usual for Tickle Lipo is a 2, with other procedures it can range up to a 7-10.
Decrease Healing Time
33- 84% reduction in time to end result. Most types of liposuction will take upwards of 3-6 months, while Tickle Lipo healing time is commonly less than 1 month.
Shortened Primary Phase of Healing
From 30-50% reduction in time of swelling, warmth of tissues and tenderness. With most Liposuction procedures this period lasts at least 7-10 days or even longer, with Tickle Lipo the average time is 5 days.
