A matter of genetics, aging or the combination of the two may result in fatty deposits in the neckline. As seen on The Doctors, options to treat and prevent Turkey Necks include Tickle Lipo, a new minimally invasive treatment is available to remove the accumulated fat, exposing a more sculpted and defined jawline.

Performed under local anesthesia, Tickle Lipo differs from traditional liposuction in that the cannula uses acoustic infrasonic vibration to gently break up fat from the surrounding tissue. Since the procedure is performed without general anesthesia, patients are awake and can communicate with their physicians. Many report a tickling sensation due to the cannula's vibration.
Scarring is minimal as there are no incisions necessary. Downtime is minimal in comparison to a surgery such as a Necklift and most patients can resume normal activities within a few days.
Tickle Lipo differs from other methods of tumescent liposuction because the cannula is activated by air pressure, causing a whirling movement, infrasound and vibration referred to as 'nutational'.
