A method is proposed to implement a fast frictionless dynamics in a low-dimensional Bose-Einstein condensate by engineering the time dependence of the transverse confining potential in a highly anisotropic trap. The method exploits the inversion of the dynamical self-similar scaling law in the radial degrees of freedom. We discuss the application of the method to preserve short-range correlations in time-of-flight experiments, the implementation of nearly sudden quenches of non-linear interactions, and its power to assist self-similar dynamics in quasi–one-dimensional condensates.
