Lipodissolve is similar to mesotherapy. This involves injecting a mixture of “fat dissolving” chemicals into the fat. This is marketed as a noninvasive alternative to liposuction.
Yes, lipodissolve can work. The problem is it is very inconsistent. I have seen a patient with large calves and ankles who swore to me that these doubled in size after lipodissolve.
Yesterday, I saw a patient back for her 3 month tummy tuck followup who had lipodissolve several months previously. This caused areas of irregular fat which became a larger problem than original issue.
