Dr. Zelko the Cosmetic Surgeon at ZBodySculpt is one few experts in the US experienced in Tickle Lipo, the most gentle, fast and effective method of liposuction.
Liposuction has evolved in the past 30 years. Traditional liposuction, which is still performed today, is very traumatic. A form of cosmetic surgery which is performed in a hospital, excess body fat is removed through extensive cutting and sucking. This out of date cosmetic surgery method often creates significant bruising, tissue and nerve damage, and long periods of downtime. Many enhancements to liposuction have been made over the years, with the most significant being Tickle Lipo. Dr. Zelko was the first cosmetic surgery physician to perform Tickle Lipo in the Midwest.
This European, now FDA-approved liposuction method, permanently removes fat through a combination of rotation and low-frequency infrasonic vibrations. Tickle Lipo is a gentle, safe and extremely effective method of cosmetic surgery. Because it requires little downtime, clients experience fast results with minimal discomfort. Dr. Zelko is one of the only physician trainers for the Tickle Lipo procedure in the country.
For those who want fat depletion without any incisions, Dr. Zelko offers a non-invasive Lipo Sculpture option. Fractora FIRM uses Radio Frequency (RF) waves to slim and tone the skin. The waves heat up the cells, causing them to leak their fatty contents into the extracellular space. Your body then removes this fatty fluid. The fat cell is not destroyed with this method. Meanwhile, new collagen fibers form from heat stimulation to help tighten these treated areas. This no-pain, no-recovery procedure does not use needles or knives. Fractora FIRM can be applied to practically any problem spot – abdomen, thighs, hips, arms, chin and even male breasts. It’s a great way to sculpt, trim and lose inches without any invasive tools or scars.
Dr. Zelko performs a Brazilian style tummy tuck procedure, called the awake Avelar Tummy Tuck. This is perfect for clients who have excess, redundant skin across their lower abdomen. Dr. Zelko’s tummy tuck involves less disruption of surrounding tissues, therefore significantly reducing post-op complications. There is reduced amount of pain and recovery time compared to the traditional procedure.
Performed in our office, our Tummy Tuck is done with local anesthesia. Because Dr. Zelko keeps the belly button intact and does not suture the abdominal muscles, clients experience quicker recoveries, less pain and great results.
