The combination of phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate is often referred to as “Lipodissolve” or “Fat Dissolving Injections” and is used as an alternative to surgical procedures such as liposuction. Fat dissolving injections are considered a minimally invasive treatment that can be performed in-office with little to no downtime.

What Causes Saggy Skin?
Saggy skin can be caused by a combination of factors, including natural aging, genetics, and lifestyle choices. The loss of collagen and elastin in the skin, as well as decreased muscle tone, can contribute to the appearance of sagging. Factors such as sun exposure, smoking, and poor nutrition can also accelerate the process of sagging skin.
Fat dissolving injections is a nonsurgical treatment that involves injecting a combination of phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate into areas of the body with excess fat. These substances work to break down and dissolve fat cells, leading to a reduction in localized fat deposits.
Phosphatidylcholine is a naturally occurring substance found in the body that helps to break down fat. Deoxycholate is a bile acid that is used to emulsify fats in the digestive system. When injected into fatty tissue, these substances work together to break down fat cells, which are then eliminated from the body through natural processes.
Fat dissolving injections can be used to treat a variety of areas on the body, including the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, arms, and chin.
Currently, there is the only one deoxycholic acid-based injectable treatment that has been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) in Australia for reducing submental (under the chin) fat. The TGA has not approved any injectable product for the purpose of fat reduction or body contouring, and their use is considered "Off-label". It's important to note that the safety and effectiveness of these treatments have not been established through rigorous clinical trials, and their use carries potential risks and complications. It's best to consult with a Dr Tina to discuss safe and effective options for fat reduction and body contouring.
Results from fat dissolving injections can vary depending on the individual and the area being treated. Most patients begin to see results within a few weeks of treatment, with final results becoming visible after several months.
The number of treatments needed depends on the individual and the area being treated. Typically, multiple treatments are needed to achieve the desired results.
Fat dissolving injections is not a substitute for weight loss and is best suited for individuals who are at or near their ideal weight but have localized areas of fat that are resistant to diet and exercise.
Good candidates for fat dissolving injections are individuals who are in good overall health, have realistic expectations for the results of the treatment, and are at or near their ideal weight. Fat dissolving injections is not recommended for individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding, have a history of blood clotting disorders, or have certain medical conditions.
