Lipolysis Weight Loss Treatment

LIPOLYSIS TREATMENT

General information

  • Lipolysis is a medical procedure to dissolve fat in unwanted areas on the body
  • It promotes the breakdown of fatty acids and results in defined contours of the treated areas
  • It is recommended that a healthy lifestyle and exercise be used to promote weight loss and 
  • prevent fat reaccumulating in the treated areas
  • After completion of the maximum number of sessions, results are permanent if weight is 
  • kept constant
  • It may not be a suitable treatment option for all such as in the case of:
  • Fluid overload, bloating in the abdominal area, under eye bags caused by fluid accumulation
