Permanent Fat Dissolving

What you need to know.
Stubborn pockets of subcutaneous tissue (AKA fat) can be frustrating and resistant to diet and exercise. Fear not, we are here to help!
Fat dissolving injections, or lipodissolve, is a safe and effective alternative to liposuction with less associated risks, downtime and cost. It can be used to permanently reduce excess fat below the chin, the lower abdomen and the flanks (love handles). The treatment is relatively pain free and takes around 30 minutes! Many patients see a noticeable reduction in fat after just one treatment, however up to three treatments may be needed.
Our lipodissolve uses phosphatidylcholine (PTC) as the primary substance that destroys fat cells in the targeted area. PTC is a naturally occurring substance found in the body, however the PTC used in lipodissolve is derived from soy beans, so you should not have the treatment if you have a soy allergy.

PTC is injected with very fine needles directly into the unwanted fat deposits. The fat is broken down into a soluble form and removed by normal liver and kidney function. The inflammatory process (swelling) that PTC triggers is also responsible for creating a tightening effect in addition to the fat loss.


  • Visible improvement to stubborn fat areas
  • Permanent results if diet and exercise are maintained
  • Improving the appearance and profile of patients, contouring the jawline
  • No incisions or scarring after treatment
  • No general anaesthetic or hospital stay and short recovery time

Common Side Effects

What happens in the appointment

Step 1:
Your practitioner will assess the area of concern and complete a thorough consultation. Area to be treated is cleaned and marked.
Step 2:
The treatment area can be numbed on request with ice or topical anaesthetic. The PTC solution contains a local anaesthetic for minimal discomfort.
Step 3:
Depending on the size of the area, a number of injections (5-30) are made with a very fine needle. The injecting process only takes 15-30 minutes.
