Lipodissolve is best for treating areas that diet and exercise cannot budge. Localized fatty deposits, such as love handles, back rolls, belly fat, bra rolls or thigh fat can be bothersome and hard to completely get rid of on your own. For these areas, Lipodissolve may be the right treatment solution for you.
Lipodissolve is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure which consists of a series of tiny injections of a fat-dissolving mixture. The mixture consists of 2 naturally occurring chemicals, Phosphatidylcholine and Sodium Deoxycholate, which are normally secreted and stored in the gall bladder and help with the digestion of fat. Once injected, these chemicals begin to break down and dissolve fat giving you a more contoured and toned appearance.
The first appointment will be a consultation to visually inspect the areas of concern and evaluate if Lipodissolve is the best treatment solution for you. The size of the area and the number of treatments required will be determined during this initial consultation. Keep in mind that Lipodissolve is only meant to treat small pockets of fat, and not everyone is a candidate. Often, the first treatment will be administered that day also.
After the treatment, it takes several weeks for the broken down fat to be cleaned up and removed by your body. The success of the treatment varies from patient to patient with some seeing better or faster results than others. It may take a few months for results to become obvious, depending on the size of the area treated. The removal of fat is permanent as long as you do not gain weight. It is therefore important to maintain a healthy life style post Lipodissolve treatment with plenty of physical activity and a healthy diet.
