Injection Lipolysis / Meso- lipolysis
Simply dissolve excess fat ….with lipolysis injections.
Injection lipolysis – often referred to as lipodissolve or mesotherapy – involves injecting a mixture of chemicals, generally consisting of a combination of phosphatidylcholine and sodium deoxycholate, into the subcutaneous fatty tissue in order to dissolve fat cells. Our treatment also contain vitamins in the injection mixture.
Indications of injection lipolysis are increasing. Obviously, people who do not want to have liposculpture are an indication. Among these are the small, well-localized deposit of subcutaneous fat where a volume of 100 to 500 ml is considered ideal especially if soft, spongy fat. Other indications include lipoma or multiple lipomas, and post liposuction deformities. Fat grafting if there is an area with too much “take” of the injected fat, or where the injected fat “take” unevenly is another indication for this procedure.
Injection lipolysis with collagenase could be used for treating depressed scars as post cesarean section scars that are bounded by areas of protruding fat.
Areas commonly treated-
chin( submental fat)
love handles, and back rolls.
A thorough medical history and examination by Dr Young is followed by a frank discussion about what the patient seeks in terms of results.
The area to be treated is cleaned and marked out. A series of multiple tiny injections is placed into the area, the whole procedure is usually over in an hour.
Post care instructions are then discussed and a follow up date is planned. There may be a need to repeat the procedure a number of times.
Usually there will be results showing after 6-8 weeks, some patients require more than one treatment.
Absolute Contraindications are so many including age younger than 18 years, pregnancy, breast feeding, fully anticoagulated patient receiving Coumadin or heparin, current serious illness or active infection, known allergy to soy products or any ingredients of the injection compound, for breast reduction, insulin-dependent diabetics with unstable diabetic control or impaired circulation, severe generalized obesity, previous significant adverse reaction to this treatment, severe needle phobia and immunocompromised patients of transplant recipients and those undergoing chemotherapy.
Injection lipolysis should not be used when treating patients who have large volumes of fat (BMI >30), or patients who have unrealistic expectations.
Localized burning sensation, erythema & oedema, transient urticaria, ecchymoses & hematomas,  infectious granulomatous reaction that spontaneously resolve within one month, skin ulceration that could be either due to injections placed too superficially or to compression of blood vessels in the area by severe oedema.
Rare to occur and include: nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, infection, menstrual irregularities and syncope.
