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?

Consultation: 

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. 

Post-Care: 

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.
