Small fat deposits in the body can accumulate in particular areas of the body, even in individuals with normal body weight. Lypolysis is an effective procedure to reduce these small fat deposits, which for example, can accumulate under the chin. Lypolysis can improve the contours of the lower jaw to remove this “double chin” and also can be used on other parts of the body. Lipolysis is a procedure that has been used for over a decade and has proved to be safe and effective.
In this technique a substance phosphatidylcholine ( PPT ) a natural substance obtained from soya beans, is directly injected into the undesired fat deposits . PPT is an enzyme that splits solid fat into small particles and thus ensures its solubility. Fat dissolved through this injection is through the blood stream, which then naturally is eliminated from the body. This procedure does not require anesthesia or hospital stay. Aftercare is minimal and there are rarely any side effects. Temporary swelling, reddening, and sometimes bruises are typical reactions. The full effect of procedure is seen after 4- 6 weeks. Lypolysis is a safe and effective procedure in 95% of the population and results are dependent on blood supply and structure of the fat tissue.
Like all other medical procedures, lypolysis should be done by a trained dermatologist who is skilled and qualified to select and determine proper treatment options.
