How can fat deposits be removed surgically and non-surgically?
Fat deposit reduction has traditionally been performed by liposuction. It still remains the gold standard for fat deposit reduction. However, in the past decade non-surgical procedures have arisen to reduce fat deposits as an alternative to liposuction. One of these procedures is Lipodissolve. Lipodissolve is a means of spot reducing fat deposits by injection. The active ingredient in Lipodissolve is phosphatidylcholine and this is a natural product that is derived from soybeans.
What is the difference between Lipodissolve and liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical procedure and anaesthesia or sedation is generally required. It also has a greater recovery period and requires the use of uncomfortable and tight compression garments for several weeks. Liposuction is the most effective means of removing fat. For those who do not want surgery, are scared of surgery, or do not think that the risks are necessary, Lipodissolve is a non-surgical alternative. No anaesthesia or sedation is required and it has minimal downtime.
Both liposuction and Lipodissolve treatments yield permanent results.
