Lipodissolve™ Lipodissolve™ is considered a highly successful alternative to standard liposuction. Put simply, Lipodissolve™ is an advanced form of Mesotherapy.  Like Mesotherapy, Lipodissolve™ involves a series of injections that liquify the fat in the targeted areas (usually inner and outer thighs, stomach, arms, and chin).  These injections turn the fat into liquid form by breaking down the connective bonds between the fat cells, thus creating a smoother appearance.

The difference between Mesotherapy and Lipodissolve™ has to do with the concentrative of the active ingredients in the injection.  While Mesotherapy has been used since the 1950's and is considered quite successful at treating exercise resistant cellulite, Lipodissolve™ is it's more advanced counterpart.  If you'd like to see how fat dissolving injections work for you, many doctors suggest starting with Mesotherapy and upgrading to Lipodissolve™ if you are satisfied with your treatments.

Lipodissolve™ is not a weight loss treatment.  This treatment is intended for patients who are otherwise within or near their ideal weight, but simply have "problem areas" that remain untouched with exercise.  Only a certified specialist can determine if you're a candidate for this procedure or if you need to wait until you have lost a certain amount of weight.  Sometimes patients on the fringe of their ideal weight may benefit better from standard liposuction.

Time Required for Lipodissolve™:
Lipodissolve™ takes up to an hour to perform, depending on the size and the number of areas being treated.  Keep in mind, Lipodissolve™ requires more than one treatment (usually around 6), so the price range given, reflects one treatment.  Usually if a package of treatments are purchased, you can receive significant savings.
