What is Lipolysis ?

Lipolysis is an effective non-surgical alternative to liposuction for targeting small stubborn pockets of fat that seem resistant to diet and exercise. It involves injecting a solution containing phosphatidylcholine (PPC) and deoxycholate (DC) into targeted areas. Studies suggest that both PPC and DC work by triggering a process called

What can lypolysis help with? 

Lypolysis eliminates fat cells in the injected areas while preserving surrounding tissues. This allows for a more precise sculpting effect, helping you achieve a smoother and more defined appearance. 

This treatment is ideal for reducing fat in stubborn areas that are unresponsive to diet and exercise alone, such as: 

  • Double chin: Loose the double chin or tighten the loose skin around your jawline caused by aging or weight loss 
  • Stomach and love handles: Loose the stubborn fat in your stomach to give you a slimmer look in the core areas 
  • Thighs and hips: Define the look of your legs and make them look more slim 
  • Arms: Reduce the appearance of fat to make your arms more toned. 

What to Expect?


Your journey to a more sculpted you begins with a personalized consultation with Yona. She will: 

  • Discuss your goals and desired areas for fat reduction. 
  • Assess your suitability for PPC/DC lipolysis. 
  • Explain the treatment process in detail, including the number of sessions likely needed to achieve optimal results. 
  • Address any questions you may have about the procedure and potential side effects. 

The Procedure: 

The actual PPC/DC lipolysis treatment is designed for comfort and efficiency: 

  • The procedure typically takes less than 30 minutes per treatment area. 
  • Yona will use a fine needle to inject the PPC/DC solution directly into the targeted fat deposits through small punctures. 
  • Topical anesthetic can be applied for added comfort, but most patients tolerate the procedure well. 


Following your treatment, you can resume most normal activities immediately, with minimal downtime. Yona will provide detailed post-care instructions to optimize results and minimize side effects. These may include: 

  • Avoiding strenuous exercise for a few days. 
  • Applying cold compresses to reduce swelling (if present). 

Results and Side Effects: 

Clinical studies show an average fat layer reduction of 2-6mm after a series of treatments. While results can vary, most patients see significant and long-lasting reductions in fat deposits after completing the recommended treatment plan (typically 2-4 sessions spaced 6-8 weeks apart). You may experience some temporary side effects like Redness, Swelling, Tenderness or Minor bruising. These typically resolve within a week. Serious complications are very rare when performed by an experienced provider like Yona.
