Injection Lipolysis


International Active Member ISAIPS

Injection lipolysis is cosmetic medicine  procedure in which drug mixtures are injected into patients with the goal of breaking down fat
In this technique , a substance phosphatidylcholine ( PPT ) and sodium deoxycholate, into the skin and/or subcutaneous fatty tissue in order to dissolve fat cells. Some treatments also contain vitamins in the injection solution.This melts the fat deposits, which is then eliminated by the body. PPT has been used intravenoulsy for the prevention and treatment of blood vessel blockages by fat particles ( fat embolism )and as a liver protective.What the therapy does do is to enable the fat in specific, individual regions of the body to be broken down and then absorbed by the body's metabolism. The active substance is injected via very thin needles.Injection lipolysis is best suited for areas of soft fat on the belly, the face, the inside of the thighs, the back and hips. Injection lipolysis therapy also achieves good results on cellulite.The number of treatments differs from person to person, depending upon the type of fat, body region and body size. Generally two to four sessions at two months intervals may be required for completion of treatment. Lipolysis is meant for small areas of fat deposit, and liposuction would be a preferred method for larger areas. Your surgeon will be able to guide you.

Patients only feel a slight initial prick and, for the first 2 hours, a slight sensation of itching and burning. A few patients may need a pain-killing tablet on the first night after treatment.Lipolysis is not a method of weight reduction and is not meant for people who are grossly obese. This technique is useful for effectively reducing fat deposits which are resistant to diet and exercise.Lipolysis as a cosmetic procedure has been used for over a decade and has proved to be safe and effective. This procedure is also used for managing lipomas.The therapy is not intended as a means of weight reduction but is a way of getting rid of unwanted localised deposits of fat, e.g. double chin, fat on the thighs, belly and upper arms.
This procedure should be done by a trained cosmetic surgeon who would be able to provide further information and counselling.This procedure is routinely done at Image medical centre.
