Lipodissolve Body Contouring

Gender, genetics, and age can leave us with unwanted areas of fat accumulation. Target and remove problem area fat with lipodissolve, also known as body sculpting. Lipodissolve is not a weight loss treatment and clients need to be at a healthy weight to be treated. The ideal candidate for lipodissolve has stubborn fat deposits that are persistent despite diet and exercise. Lipodissolve is similar to mesotherapy in that it is an injection lipolysis dissolution solution that is an alternative to a more invasive liposuction procedure. 

Common areas treated for women include:

  • Abdomen, beneath the belly button
  • Love handles
  • Inner Thighs
  • Saddlebags (outer thigh) 
  • Back of the arms (triceps)
  • Upper back under the bra line
  • Underneath the chin
  • Posterior upper thighs (banana roll)

Common areas treated for men include: 

  • Love handles
  • Abdominal fat pad 
  • Area under the chin
  • Gynecomastia (fat pads in chest area)

Localized injections of phosphatidylcholine (PC) with deoxycholate (DC) is used to reduce superficial deposits of fat. Once the fat cells are destroyed, they are slowly removed by the body’s inflammatory response, resulting in fat reduction in the treated area, while at the same time newly laid down collagen tightens the overlying skin.

What can I expect?

Numbing cream is applied to the area to be treated 30 minutes before treatment. The procedure itself can take between 10-30 minutes depending on the size of the area. Most patients experience limited downtime and recover from lipodissolve within two – four days. Normal activities can be resumed after the procedure, but strenuous exercise should be limited for a few days. Redness, swelling, and bruising will resolve within 10 days. 

Lipodissolve results will become visible after multiple treatments. Typically four to six injections spaced six to eight weeks apart are used for best results. Results will change with weight gain, pregnancy, and aging.

Contraindications for Lipodissolve include:

  • You’re pregnant or nursing.
  • You have chronic conditions such as heart disease, kidney disease, uncontrolled diabetes, thyroid disorders, or infections.
  • You’re currently on aspirin therapy.
  • You have a soy allergy (the PCDC mixture is soy-based).
