What is Cell Rich Fat Transfer?
Cell Rich Fat Transfer by Tickle Lipo™ is a simple, fast, gentle, and low cost fat harvesting/transfer method, which yields quality reinjectable adipose tissue with high potency of adipose derived regenerative cells (ADRC’s).
Tickle Lipo™ is the brand name for Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture® (N.I.L.)
The low frequency “non heat” INFRASONIC vibration enables the removal of body fat while protecting the surrounding tissues, resulting in smooth contour and a rapid recovery. The TICKLE LIPO™ process is a proven, reliable system that safely enables precise, high volume de-bulking in all body areas. The NUTATIONAL pattern offers notable benefits, especially in the areas of fibrosis (secondary liposuction, backs, and in males).
Infrasonic vibration during the infiltration and operative fat emulsification creates benefits known as “The Gate Control Theory.” Vibration interferes with the conduction of painful stimuli by activating nerves that do not transmit pain signals. This advantage allows physicians to perform the liposuction procedure under local or IV sedation with the likelihood of increased patient comfort.
Clinical studies have shown N.I.L. yields
- "Superior" volume of adipose derived regenerative cells (ADRC’s) compared to standard liposuction1
- Twice the volume of ADRC’s and three times the volume of mesenchymal cells2
- Highly viable cells1 2

N.I.L. uses compressed air in order to drive the tip of the cannula into a 3-dimensional precession movement called the nutation.
Infrasound (low frequency: lower than 20hz) isgenerated by the nutational mode of action. This “nutational infrasonic effect” produced during N.I.L. is believed to be the key to causing the in vivo dissociation of large numbers of regenerative cells from connective tissues and resident vasculature.
Finally, gentle suction removes the lipoaspirate, which includes small fat clusters and a large population of free floating a ARC’s in mixture of tumescent fluid.
The Cell Rich Fat Transfer protocol suggests the use of a special harvesting cannula (patent pending), which gently removes small adipose cell clusters, which have been loosened inside the body via the patented "nutational infrasonic effect" produced by the Tickle Lipo system.
Fat, which is rich in regenerative cells, is collected into a sterile decanting container. After a brief settling period, excess tumescent fluid is drained, then remaining fat cells are drawn into re-injection syringes for immediate autologous transplantation.
The result is high quality, viable fat for use in natural breast augmentations, Brazilian butt lifts, and transfer to hands and face.
Recent studies have shown that decanting is preferable to centrifugation for fat survivability. Centrifugation tends to damage fragile cells and has also been shown to deplete the separated fat of beneficial ADRC’s1. CRFT protocol suggests that sterile decantation will preserve the integrity of fat cells and retain the rich volume of free-floating ADRC's.
