Lipolysis – reduction of body fat
The effects of the treatment
Local accumulation of more fat in some parts of the body, not only causes discomfort to the patient, but also badly affects his health. The solution to this common problem may be lipolysis. It is a non-surgical method of removing excess fat. The preparation on which the therapy is based is a combination of phosphatidylcholine (a substance dissolving cell membranes of fat cells) and deoxycholate (a substance destroying fat). The fats released from the cells are then transported to the liver, where they are metabolized and removed from the body.
Lipolysis works best in reducing fat from around:
- around the so-called second chin,
- some parts of the back.
What does the treatment look like?
In the place of excessive accumulation of adipose tissue, a mixture of phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate is injected. By acting on fat cells, it begins the process of removing excess fat from the body. The preparation together with the anesthetic is injected with a special long and thin needle.
Time of treatment
The treatment lasts from 30 to 60 minutes.
Convalescence after treatment
Fat reduction therapy does not require convalescence. Immediately after the procedure local swelling may occur, which disappears after about 7 days.
The redness of the skin may persist for up to 24 hours and hematomas and bruises may appear, which are absorbed up to 14 days.
The duration of the effects
The results of the treatment are becoming gradually visible during the first few weeks. Their maintenance depends on their lifestyle and adherence to doctor’s recommendations (it is advisable to use low-fat and low-carbohydrate diets, taking more fluids). Optimal results are obtained after a series of 2-5 treatments at intervals of 4-8 weeks. They are strengthened by slimming massage, lymphatic drainage or endermology of treated areas.
