Injection Lipolysis for Men
Injection lipolysis is a cosmetic procedure aimed at dissolving and redistributing adipose tissues (fat stores). It is intended not as a means of weight loss but rather a way of getting rid of unwanted localised deposits of fat often found around the hips, thighs, underarms, belly and face. Lipolysis is a non-invasive, non-surgical, low risk and highly effective treatment with almost little to no recovery time needed.
What are the special advantages of injection lipolysis?
- Once fat cells have been dissolved, they do not return provided weight remains consistent and a healthy lifestyle is maintained.
- The procedure is non-invasive, quick to administer and very low risk.
- Patients may find that the slower rate of change not as confronting psychologically as there is not an abrupt transformation in their physical appearance unlike with liposuction and liposculpture.
What is involved in the procedure?
Injection lipolysis involves subcutaneous injection of active ingredients which help mobilise stubborn fat stores. The procedure is not particularly painful and takes around 15minutes in total.
Are there any side effects?
Side effects after injection lipolysis may include swelling, reddening, bruising, localised circulatory changes and, in some patients, an increase in the number of stools for up to two days following the procedure.
How many treatments are necessary?
Depending on what area is being treated, the number of session may vary between 2-4 treatments at intervals of 6-8 weeks.
