Injection Lipolysis

  • The Scoop on Lipodissolve

    Lipodissolve

    Lipodissolve

    Lipodissolve is a very common alternative to many different forms of invasive surgical cosmetic procedures. It is non-invasive and much safer than liposuction, and can be a very effective way to remove fat deposits and eliminate cellulite. As a matter of fact, it is one of the only proven ways of getting rid of fat for good, since it completely destroys the fat cells.

    Keep in mind that, although Lipodissolve is a completely legal means of losing weight, not all ingredients are FDA-approved. Oddly enough, there is no set ingredient list to Lipodissolve, and different practitioners do things according to their own specifications. Ingredients are also distinctly unique for the area affected, and Lipodissolve on love handles may be drastically different than the concoction used for stretch marks or upper arms.


    Procedures similar to Lipodissolve include mesotherapy, lipolysis, injection lipolysis, and/or lipostabil. Some of these treatments are virtually identical to Lipodissolve. Like this procedure, many are not technically FDA-approved but are legal and often very effective. Though side effects can be painful and difficult in some cases, many are mild and go away after just a few short weeks.


    The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) will not approve this procedure until more is known about exactly how it works. Though we know that it technically works by liquefying fat cells and removing them, it is unclear where these liquefied fat cells go or what potential damage they could do to bodily organs. In addition, there is no definitive answer to questions regarding where the medication goes after it does its job. Questions like these will have to be answered in order for more health-care professionals to feel safe using Lipodissolve.


    The cost of Lipodissolve varies by doctor and location, and up to six treatments are often needed in order to see maximum results. At as much as $1,500 per session, this can quickly become a very costly way to reduce a very small fat pocket. Lipodissolve is not for large fatty deposits, and these patients need not consider this as an effective treatment option.

  • The Skinny on Injection Lipolysis

    Can an injection safely help you lose weight?

    Can an injection safely help you lose weight?

    There are so may weight loss treatments, options, supplements and procedures available on the market today that it’s easy to be intimidated or confused when trying to figure out which one might be right for you. As a relatively new science, there are a few things about injection lipolysis, also referred to as mesotherapy, you should be aware of before considering treatment.

    Injection Lipolysis can be used to remove small, unwanted deposits of fat all over the body. Specifically, treatment zones usually include the abdomen, thighs, upper arms, knees & elbows, chin, lower eyelids, neck, back, bra line, and on the sides. These areas are the most commonly treated zones, so if you are looking for injection lipolysis in another region of your body, you should be sure to discuss it at length with a qualified practitioner. Injection Lipolysis is designed to treat zones of the body where surgery may not be ideal, or to smooth out misshapen parts of the body, hence why it is commonly called “fine body contouring“.

    Reportedly, six percent of patients who receive injection lipolysis have little success in their weight loss endeavor after receiving treatment. In the vast majority of cases, patients do report some form of progress due to the injections they received. It is important for those who might receive injection lipolysis to remember that they must incorporate a healthy diet and regular exercise into their lives in order to ensure positive results.

    It takes more than one treatment in order to receive optimal results from injection lipolysis treatments. Physicians often recommend two to four treatments, at six to eight week intervals in order for the treatments to work the best they can. This frequency is dependent upon the amount of fat to be treated and what zone the treatments will occur in.

    As a rule, health insurance will not cover injection lipolysis, since it is considered to be a purely cosmetic procedure. However, if excess fat deposits on your body are causing other health issues and your physician refers you for injection lipolysis treatment, your health insurance policy may cover a portion of the cost. Be sure to discuss this at length with your insurance agent to find out as much as you can before booking any appointments. Some insurance providers may cover these treatments, but only if they are performed by a specific doctor under specific circumstances.

    So far, it seems that injection lipolysis is a relatively safe procedure for fat removal in comparison to liposuction or other surgical fat removal methods. However, there are still risks associated with this treatment, such as allergic reaction. It is important for patients to remember that injection lipolysis employs the method of forcing foreign substances into the superficial fat layers, and thus it is certainly possible for adverse effects to occur. A specialist in the field will cover any risks you may face during consultation.

  • Injection Lipolysis As a UK Weight Loss Method

    Can an injection safely help you lose weight? Many experts are saying "no."

    Can an injection safely help you lose weight? Many experts are saying "no."

    Injection Lipolysis (better known by the brand names of Lipodissolve and Lipostabil) has slowly been gaining popularity over the past few decades. This procedure uses a serious of medicated injections to break down pockets of body fat. Many people have started to use this as an alternative to liposuction surgery, but some experts are concerned that it may be an unsafe alternative to diet and exercise.

    Lipolysis doesn’t have a set list of ingredients, but it generally contains a mixture of lipid acids, enzymes, plant extracts and other chemicals. The injections are said to be relatively painless and do not call for anesthetic. This is then injected into specific sites on the body (arms, waist, chin, etc.) to dissolve localized fatty tissue. It usually takes several treatments at 4 week intervals to get the desired effect.

    The Risks of UK Lipolysis Procedures

    There are no medical or surgical weight loss methods that are considered 100% safe. Liposuction carries a risk of organ damage, infections and death. Tummy tuck patients often experience adverse reactions to anesthesia, disfiguring scars and blood clots. One of the biggest problems with Injection Lipolysis is that it is a relatively new procedure that has not been fully embraced by groups like the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency or the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Several medical associations in the States, including the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS), have even issued warnings against use of the product.

    The lightest criticisms of injection lipolysis are along the lines of the ASAPS’s statement that the drug is “scientifically unproven, lacking any objective data on safety and efficacy.” Some of its stronger opponents question how the human body disposes of the liquefied fat. Hypotheses include that it is filtered through the liver (which could lead to liver failure) or that it could get caught in blood vessels and cause heart problems. The ASPAS’s warning also states that there have been cases of bacterial infections and tissue death caused by the injections.

    Liposuction and tummy tucks are viewed by many as risky weight loss methods, but these methods have at least been practiced to the point where they are accepted medical procedures. Injection Lipolysis, on the other hand, is still in its experimental phases and has not been approved by most significant medical and scientific associations. It is inadvisable that anyone undergo this treatment, as there are still many questions about its effects on the body. Lipolysis is currently undergoing tests in several countries, but early opinions and the fact that it has been banned in several places throughout the world casts a pessimistic shadow over the future of the drug.
