LipoDissolve is a minimally invasive, non-surgical procedure that produces similar results to liposuction, and is well-suited for small areas of fat. This fat dissolving procedure can be used to improve the appearance of cellulite and contour areas of the body that may not respond well to diet and exercise, such as the inner and outer thighs, abdomen, chin, under eye area, and arms. Because it is a non-surgical procedure, LipoDissolve has fewer risks and a shorter recovery time when compared to conventional liposuction procedures.
LipoDissolve treatments are performed in a medical office setting with or without a local anesthetic and generally last about 15 to 30 minutes per session. The doctor injects the target area, or areas, with the LipoDissolve solution, which then begins to break the bonds that hold fat molecules together, essentially transforming the fat into a liquid form that your body can then metabolize and eliminate as it would other waste products. Patients typically require a series of three to six sessions, spaced six to eight weeks apart, to achieve the desired results and typically notice results within about a month after the first treatment.
Patients can generally return to normal activities the same day, although they should refrain from strenuous activities and exercise for at least a few days after their LipoDissolve treatment. Swelling, discomfort around the injection site and bruising can sometimes occur and typically subside within a few days.
The cost of LipoDissolve treatments can very greatly depending on the target area, your geographical location, the number of areas targeted per office visit, the number of treatments required and your doctor’s individual fee schedule. Typically, LipoDissolve treatments can cost anywhere from $400 to $1,000.
