Does lipodissolve work?

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.
