Lippodisolve FAQ

Who is Suitable?

Lipodissolve is best for small pockets of fat rather than larger areas.

It is suitable for most patients but should NOT be used if you have any of the following:

  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Severe liver or kidney disease
  • Pregnancy or breast feeding.
What Areas Can be Treated?

Many areas can be treated with lipodissolve. The following are common areas treated:

  • Double chin
  • Jowls
  • Love handles
  • Gluteal banana
  • Knees
  • Belly
  • Thighs
How many treatments are needed?

Most require 2-4 treatments in intervals of 6-8 weeks to gain successful results.

At Ministry of Skin we will discuss your concerns with you to ensure a program is put together that you understand and are comfortable with.

Treatments are tailored to the individual and can be stopped sooner if desired results are obtained. The number of treatments required varies on the size of the area being treated and the volume of fat in the area.

How the treatment is done and possible side effects?

The area being treated is first numbed with a numbing cream. The area is then injected using a very fine needle in multiple spots to ensure all the fat in the area is targeted.

The procedure can cause mild discomfort but is tolerable.

After the procedure the area will swell up, be tender to touch and may become red and have some brusing.

This swelling and tenderness can last for few days so ensure this recovery time is factored into your scheduled treatment ie do not have it done within 1-2 weeks of an event.

If brusing does occur this can last 10-14 days as any other bruise can.
