What is injection lipolysis?
The injection lipolysis treatment is currently considered one of the most modern methods of removing unwanted fat tissue and body shaping in the field of aesthetic medicine. Liposuction will help us locally remove fat from selected parts of the body and deal with body imperfections, and thus gain a dream figure and self-confidence by getting rid of complexes related to the figure's shortcomings.
One of the greatest advantages of this procedure is its low invasiveness, safety and comfort for both the specialist and the patient - the procedure is practically painless. It is an excellent alternative to highly invasive and high risk of complications, painful fat removal procedures, such as liposuction.
The injection lipolysis treatment consists in the local injection of substances that are designed to dissolve fat cells. At the moment of dissolving fat cells, they enter the bloodstream and are transported to the liver, where they are naturally broken down and further excreted from the body. It is a completely controlled process. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia to maximize patient comfort, but also does not require prior preparation from the patient.
The preparations used for injection lipolysis include mixtures of phosphatidylcholine, deoxycholate, which cause the breakdown of triglycerides after cell destruction, or L-carnitine and organic silica, which accelerate metabolism and fat burning. . PCC phosdatidylcholine is a component that naturally occurs in our body in the form of lecithin. PCC has long been used in medicine to combat fatty congestion and reduce blood lipids.
What parts of the body are treated with injection lipolysis - indications and course of the procedure.
It is worth noting that the lipolysis procedure can be performed by both women and men who want to remove excess fat from selected parts of the body.
- double chin,
- Unwanted belly fat
- Neck with overgrowth of adipose tissue,
- "butterflies", i.e. fat pads around the armpits,
- Folds on the back below the ribs,
- Unwanted fat around the buttocks, hips, knees, thighs,
- For men - gynecomastia.
Before performing lipolysis, it is necessary to conduct an interview to exclude contraindications to the procedure, including allergies to the preparation's ingredients or diseases that exclude it. The entire procedure takes no longer than 45-50 minutes, depending on the part of the body where the treatment is performed. Such parts as the stomach or thighs will take longer than the reduction of the second chin (about half an hour). The patient is subjected to local anesthesia and then the preparation is injected. During the procedure, no discomfort is felt, while during convalescence, swelling, edema and irritability in places of punctures may occur, sometimes itching of the skin may occur. After a few days after the lipolysis, the reaction subsides and the normal mode of our functioning is not disturbed.
It is recommended to perform a series of 3-6 treatments, which should be repeated every 4 weeks. To make the treatment even more effective and the desired effect to appear faster, it is recommended to perform a lymphatic massage, which accelerates fat burning.
