Lipolysis
Removal of smaller fat deposits thanks to non surgical fat-removal-injection

(Injection) lipolysis – also called fat-removal injection – for the reduction of smaller fat deposits represents a viable alternative in the field of body contouring to liposuction. It is a relatively new procedure that is becoming increasingly popular due to its effectiveness, cost efficiency and non-invasive nature.

General information about injection lipolysis

In this type of treatment, a ready-to-use preparation consisting of phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholic acid is injected directly into the fat deposits to dissolve them. The dissolved fats then enter the bloodstream via the lymph nodes, where they are removed and excreted in the stool. Injection lipolysis is effective in the long term in that the fat cells, once dissolved or destroyed, do not form again.
