Liposuction to remove subcutaneous fat is one of the most common aesthetic surgical procedures. However, liposuction is a surgical procedure and often requires general anesthesia, and has the potential for medical complications. Therefore, there has always been a beeline for something non-surgical which can provide the same level of improvement as liposuction does. Unfortunately, no non-surgical procedure has even reached 30-40 % of an outcome following Liposuction. Injection Lipolysis is the only procedure which has consistently shown through documentation, reduction of small fat deposits permanently.
The use of lipolytic drugs to induce a nonsurgical fat reduction is a common method in cosmetic medicine, either through topical treatments (creams, fluids) or through local injections, particularly for people seeking non-surgical options only as well as areas that may not be amenable to liposuction.
Subcutaneous injection of phosphatidylcholine (PC) solubilized in deoxycholate (DC) has been purported to eliminate body fat by fat cell lysis the outcome of which is essentially permanent.
