Lipodissolve is a non-surgical alternative to liposuction that can help to melt away the fat and lose inches. Lipodissolve is typically used to reduce fat in the stomach, love handles, legs, buttocks, bra rolls, face, and other areas of the body with excess fat.
Lipodissolve is similar to Mesotherapy : Spot Fat Reduction, but varies in the medications and injection depths.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Lipodissolve ?
Lipodissolve is a non-surgical procedure of injecting a combination of homeopathic agents and medications directly into the fat to cause the fat cells to burst (“dissolve”). It is an alternative to liposuction for treating problem areas of fat that won’t go away with diet and exercise.
How does Lipodissolve work?
The medications used in the Lipodissolve causes lysis (“bursting”) of the fat cell wall. This allows the fat that is being stored in the cell to get released, and is taken by the lymphatic system to the liver where it is metabolized and excreted out in the urine.
How is Lipodissolve different from Mesotherapy?
Lipodissolve differs from Mesotherapy in how deep the injections are placed, how much of the solution is injected, and the intervals between treatments. In Mesotherapy, the medications are put into the skin in small amounts and in Lipodissolve, the medications are put deeper into the fat pockets and more medication is used.
What type of results are expected?
Lipodissolve averages about 1 inch of fat loss for each 100cc of the medications used. This average takes in to account patients that lose 2 inches, but also patients that lose ¼ or ½ inch with the treatment. This variability is due to individual responses to the medications as well as the type of fat that is being treated. Soft fat works very well with Lipodissolve. Fibrous fat is more difficult to treat with Lipodissolve (as it is with liposuction) because more of the fat cells will weaken instead of completely bursting and therefore will need additional treatments and/or will need to combine with aftercare procedures such as endermology to optimize the results of each Lipodissolve treatment. It’s not a question of whether Lipodissolve will work, but rather how many treatments it will take to attain a goal in reduction.
What are the side effects?
The main side effects are bruising, swelling, and soreness, which peak at about 48 hours and then resolves by 10-14 days. Lipodissolve is a “no downtime” procedure.
How many treatments will it take?
Generally, the average patient requires approximately 1-3 treatments for treating fat with the goal of losing AT LEAST 1 inch of fat with each treatment. However this will depend on the individual client and the amount of fat to be treated. Treatments are done every 8 weeks apart in the same area, or every 2 weeks in different areas.
How soon will I see results?
Results vary depending on your body type and the condition being treated. On average, clients start noticing visible improvement from any particular treatment session about 4-7 weeks after that treatment. However, in some patients, it is not unusual to see the end result 12 weeks after the treatment.
How long do the results last?
The results from Lipodissolve will last permanently in the area treated. When fat cells are “dissolved”, they will no longer be in that area. However, new fat cells can be generated in the area treated and in other areas if a client adopts unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as poor eating and lack of exercise.
How is Lipodissolve different from surgical procedures such as liposuction?
Lipodissolve is a non-surgical procedure and so involves no risk from general anesthesia and no risk of surgical complications. Lipodissolve requires no recovery time and you can continue your daily activities without taking any time off.
