Body Contouring Through LipoDissolve

Isolated pockets of body fat are a cosmetic concern that has plagued individuals in Alpharetta, Georgia and around the nation. LipoDissolve is a procedure that has been used to dissolve fat in these isolated pockets to help patients achieve their body contouring goals. It is important to be aware, however, that this is not a procedure designed to treat obese or overweight individuals. It is instead designed to treat individuals in good overall health with isolated pockets of body fat that do not respond to diet and exercise. Individuals who are interested in weight loss treatment or procedures are encouraged to seek consultation with a medical professional in the Alpharetta area.

LipoDissolve has been in use in Europe for some time, but has been used in North America for a few years. The procedure involves several localized injections of a chemical that works to dissolve fat in the isolated pockets, which is eventually cleaned up by the body's natural processes. Two naturally-occurring chemicals (phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate) are used in the injection. These chemicals are stored in the gall bladder to assist in the digestion of fat.

Each session of LipoDissolve may treat two large areas of localized fat deposits. Swelling and tenderness may increase depending on the amount of injection used in each session, so it is important to discuss the extent of the treatment area with your doctor. Certain cosmetic centers have used diluted products with poor results, so speaking about this is also helpful before treatment.

A variety of areas may be treated using LipoDissolve. These may include the thighs and hips, neck, chin, cheeks, eye pads, arms, abdomen, waist, back and legs. Speak with a medical professional in the Alpharetta area to determine if the area you're interested in treated may be treated using LipoDissolve.

This procedure may be used to correct possible unevenness that may occur following traditional liposuction procedures. If you're interested in combining this treatment with others, first consult your doctor and inform them of your plans, especially if you're planning on having the procedures performed at separate clinics. To maintain the results of LipoDissolve, it is important that the patient lead a healthy lifestyle to keep the fat from returning. If the fat is able to return, the isolated pockets of fat may return.

One to four treatment sessions spaced about four to six weeks apart may be required to reach desired results. About 30 to 45 minutes may be required to complete each session. Possible side effects include pain during the injection. There may be mild bruising, swelling, tenderness and a burning sensation around the treatment area following LipoDissolve. Mild soreness or bruising may fade away after four to seven days, although this varies.
