Studies show that a high percentage of Americans consider themselves overweight, and an even higher percentage believe they are being chased by Frankenstein's monster. Alter self-perceptions with today's Groupon: for $999, you get a Tickle Lipo treatment to remove love handles at Allure Cosmetic Laser Center (up to a $3,000 value).
At Allure Cosmetic Laser Center, Dr. Leo Capobianco helps patients whittle unwanted weight from their waists with FDA-approved Tickle Lipo technology. A surgical procedure, the process employs tiny tubes that vibrate in a three-dimensional pattern to melt unwanted fat and leave it too dizzy to find its way home. The tubes, which are called cannulas, are air-powered and do not produce heat, promoting patient comfort and allowing the fat to be recycled in other areas if desired.
Because heat is not employed in the Tickle Lipo process, patients already possessing good skin tone are considered the best candidates, as collagen is not stimulated by the whipping motion of the cannulas. Full results typically show up within a month, and most patients are able to return to normal activity within a few days. Each treatment lasts 2–3 hours, or about 120 choruses of "Hit the Road, Jack."
The treatment includes compression garment and all pre- and post-operation visits.

As the head of the Allure Cosmetic Laser team, Dr. Leo Capobianco uses his extensive experience as a physician and trainer of other doctors to care for bodies with both surgical and nonsurgical beauty services. Dr. Capobianco specializes in Tickle Lipo, a revolutionary means of liposuction that targets fat with microscopic feather dusters, liquefying it for easy extraction. He also is well-trained in weight loss programs, including HCG and weight-loss medication, and is currently training other doctors on the use of bio-identical hormones to keep the body and mind refreshed.
As far as noninvasive procedures are concerned, Dr. Capobianco's skills run the gamut from medical skincare to laser beauty treatments. His team treats skin conditions such as eczema, melasma, and acne and freshen faces with chemical peels, facials, and vibradermabrasion, a new take on microdermabrasion that uses vibrating paddles. Dr. Capobianco also wields advanced laser technology to perform laser hair removal, acne treatments, and skin rejuvenation. Injectables such as Botox, Dysport, and Radiesse can keep skin looking as youthful as a toddler's driver’s license photo.
