Frequently Asked Questions
Can I lose weight with injection lipolysis?
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.
Which regions of the body are especially suited for injection lipolysis?
It is best suited for areas of soft fat on the belly, the face, the inside of the thighs, the back and hips. This therapy also achieves good results on cellulite.
Are the deposits of fat that are treated with injection lipolysis permanently eliminated? How long do the results last?

What are the special advantages of injection lipolysis?

The treatment is gentle, virtually pain-free, low in risk, and does not take long. Complicated pre- or post-treatment is necessary. Nor is ability to work impaired, except perhaps in the case of facial treatment.
How do I decide whether injection lipolysis or liposuction makes better sense for me?
For a long time, liposuction was the only means for removing accumulations of fat. But with the aid of injection lipolysis, it has now become possible to eliminate smallish deposits of fat with minimum intervention and minimum stress to the body. The main difference is that injection lipolysis is a non-operative method of treatment, whereas liposuction involves a surgical procedure.
With liposuction, the fat disappears almost immediately. Injection lipolysis allows a slower change to the body contour, allowing the patients also to gradually get used to their change in appearance over a period of several months. Injection lipolysis is also an ideal method of treatment following liposuction in order to remove any remaining fatty tissue and also tauten the surrounding skin.
How many treatments are necessary?
3-4 treatments at intervals of 2-4 weeks
Is injection lipolysis treatment painful?
As there are few nerve fibres in the subcutaneous tissue, the injections are not painful. Patients only feel a slight initial prick and, for the first 2 hours, a slight sensation of itching and burning.
What risks does injection lipolysis involve?
Immediately after treatment, slight swelling and sensitivity to pressure as well as reddening and/or itching may occur and can continue for up to 2 to 4 days.
Can Lipodissolve be combined with other treatments?

With a combination of treatments, in 3 to 6 months we can take a good body and turn it into a Perfect body: slim, firm, smooth and sculpted
