Getting rid of some stubborn fat cells and regional weights might be difficult for some people. Those people usually prefer liposuction surgery, however, the lipolyse technique is also used to get rid of stubborn fat. The lipolyse procedure is performed with three different methods: needle, laser, and cold lipolyse. These methods remove stubborn fat cells from that area by breaking down, shrinking, or melting them.

What Is Needle Lipolyse?

Lipolyse was developed by Brazilian doctor Patricia Rittes in 1995. A substance called phosphatidylcholine obtained from soy lecithin is used in this method, which provides non-surgical removal of the fat accumulated in the body and face area. Phosphatidylcholine is injected into areas with excess fat using a lipolyse needle. It is ensured that the fats are broken down and removed from the body by increasing the membrane permeability of the fat cells.

What Is Cold Lipolyse?

The cold lipolyse procedure freezes the fat cells. Fat cells die easily when exposed to cold. Thanks to this method, the situation can be prevented in areas that tend to have more fat in the lower abdomen, stomach, hips, back, legs and waist regions. The best advantage of this method is that it provides proportional thinning by affecting all fat cells.

Who Can be a Good Candidate for Lipolyse?

Lipolyse can be applied to all healthy people over the age of 18. Lipolyse is a great technique to remove regional fat, however, it is not a weight-loss procedure. Therefore, it can’t be suitable for overweight patients. Lipolyse is more fitting treatment for those with regional fat in the waist, hip, abdomen, and, arm and cellulite problems.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women cannot undergo lipolyse.
