Fat dissolving injections have been used successfully since 1998 to treat unwanted, stubborn fat deposits all over the body (including double chin) and represent a real alternative to surgical liposuction. The main component of fat dissolving injections is Deoxycholic acid, which breaks the fat cells and the broken-down tissues then eliminated naturally via lymphatic system, liver and kidneys. This treatment is performed by one of our expert doctors and subject to consultation.
Fat dissolving infections are an excellent treatment for those with stubborn, localised fat. Please note that fat dissolving injection is a body contouring treatment, not a weight loss solution.
