What is Lipodissolve?

Lipodissolve is a non-surgical and non-invasive procedure which is remarkably effective in reducing unwanted fat and cellulite deposits. In this procedure, medications are injected into unwanted fatty areas to melt away the fat. It is an alternative to liposuction that utilises unique compounds to dissolve fat, which is then eliminated from the body via the usual metabolic processes.

In lipodissolve, naturally occurring compounds are administered through a series of micro-injections to reduce subcutaneous fat. It has been proved medically that Lecithin has the ability to break down fat and reduce cholesterol. For many years, lecithin has been taken orally to lower cholesterol, remove fat and reduce cellulite. It has been given directly into veins by physicians to prevent the formation of a fat embolism in the blood. The main component of soy lecithin is a naturally occurring enzyme called Phosphatidylcholine (PPC), which helps to breakdown molecular bonds between fat molecules. When lecithin and other pharmaceutical agents are injected into the targeted area, PPC present in lecithin destabilises the fat cell membranes. Destabilisation of fat cells results in cell destruction and the release of their fatty contents into the fatty tissue. Then, body uses its own metabolic processes to remove the fats out of the body in few weeks or months. The procedure only takes about 15–30 minutes per session. Patients can see improvement in their treated area after 2–8 treatments at an interval of 6–8 weeks.


Lipodissolve treatment is the most advanced technique in non-surgical fat reduction for both men and women. Unlike liposuction, in which fats are suctioned out of the body, lipodissolve procedure permanently dissolves away unwanted fatty deposits.
