Fat dissolving injections (Lipolysis) is a non-surgical fat reduction procedure. It works by injecting a water-based solution containing deoxycholic acid or phosphotidylcholine directly into the adipose fat tissue targeting localised areas of fat.
We use a product called Celluform. This is an effective lipolytic treatment that fights localised fat.
These injections break down the membranes of the fat cells, causing the release of the fat. The fat is then naturally dispersed via the lymphatic system. A course of 3-4 treatments maybe required.
This treatment is effective when targeting stubborn, pinchable areas of fat deposits.
Lipolysis is suitable for patients that are close to their ideal weight but have stubborn areas of fat pockets.
The areas that are most popular and most suitable: double chin, jawline/jowls, lower abdomen and hips.
The process works over a period of 1-4 weeks. The results will be permanent unless there is more weight gain and fat is stored.
