While many of us are keen to shed their extra kilos, it’s usually easier said than done. How can you get rid of unwanted flab without special diet, exercise or even surgical procedures like Liposuction? You exercise and eat right – still you can’t get rid of those stubborn pockets of fat hugging your hips or clinging to your thighs. Advanced Lipodissolve is the latest craze in body sculpting. This relatively new technique is gaining in popularity because it promises to permanently melt-away fat up to 6″ inches of fat. Advanced Lipodissolve is a simple, no-surgery, doctor-administered treatment that is used for fat loss, cellulite removal, spot reduction and body sculpting.
While lifestyle change is the most common way to lose fat, and gastric bypass is a surgical method to achieve massive weight loss, many individuals are still left with pockets of fat or fatty deposits in particular areas of their bodies no matter how much weight they have lost. These areas are sometimes termed “problem areas”. Over the years fitness salespeople have tried to tout their exercise programs to spot-reduce problem thighs, hips, abdomen and upper arms. However, true fitness professionals and plastic surgeons alike are unanimous in their knowledge that you cannot spot reduce the body with training.
Pockets of fat exist because of genetics. Some people store fat around their middle, while others have “saddle bags” on their thighs, or even fat stores on their face or under their chin. While liposuction is a surgical alternative for removing fatty deposits, increasing numbers of patients are turning to safer Lipodissolve treatment to get a similar result without surgery.
What is Advanced Lipodissolve Treatment?
Advanced Lipodissolve is a non-surgical procedure during which tiny injections of medications are administered directly into the areas of fat. The treatment causes the fat cells to melt away and then dissolve, with the remaining cellular material being reabsorbed or metabolised by the body. It is considered a non-invasive, non-surgical alternative to liposuction for treatment of pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Does Lipodissolve really work?
The active ingredient that makes the fat cells melt away is called Phosphatidylcholine (“PPC”). It causes lysis (bursting) of the cell walls, allowing the fat inside the cells to be released, metabolized and excreted by the body in urine. A complex of B vitamins is added to the injection to assist the liver as it breaks down the fat. These two ingredients are delivered by injection in a saline solution (salt water).
Is Lipodissolve the same as Mesotherapy?
While Lipodissolve treatment injections go deep into the fat pockets with significant amounts of medication, Mesotherapy treatment is injected in small amounts into the skin. Lipodissolve treatment has significant results with each treatment and thus fewer treatments are necessary than with Mesotherapy.
Who can benefit from a Lipodissolve procedure?
Patients who have significant pockets of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise are good candidates for Lipodissolve. Those who are pregnant, breast-feeding, or have a significant or uncontrolled medical conditions may have to wait to proceed with the treatment. Lipodissolve is a not a treatment for weight loss or obesity and is best for individuals who have reached their ideal weight and maintained it for at least 6 months.
What results can I expect from Lipodissolve and how long will they last?
Lipodissolve results in a loss of on average 2.5 cm of fat for every 100cc of the treatment medication administered. Individual responses to the medication differ significantly between individuals so some will need more treatments than others. Soft fat is more sensitive to Lipodissolve, while fibrous fat tissue is more resistant. Both types of fat will eventually respond to the treatment, but it may take more time for the latter. Results usually begin to be apparent 4 to 7 weeks after treatment, though full results may not appear until three months afterwards. The results of Lipodissolve are permanent, though an unhealthy lifestyle including poor diet and lifestyle may contribute to generation of new fat cells. Therefore, after treatment, a regular exercise program and good nutrition are critical to maintaining results.
Are there risks associated with Lipodissolve?
Lipodissolve has been on the market in Europe since 2002 and is now available worldwide. It is administered using tiny needles that do not cause significant discomfort. The potential side effects include the risk of minor bruising, swelling and soreness in the treated area. These side effects may be at their peak 48 hours after the procedure and resolve within two weeks. Patients can return to normal daily.
