A lot of people suffer from small fat pads in spite of regular exercise and diet. These are mostly found around the chin (double chin), armpits, hips and upper thighs (saddlebags). The most cosmetically successful method to get rid of these pads is the lipolysis injection, which we administer for corrections on the neck, belly and knee areas, as well.
This method is used instead of liposuction, which is a much more invasive technique. It is a simple and reliable method: an agent containing soya bean oil is injected into the fat pads using very fine needles. This leads to the breakdown of fat before it is excreted out of the body naturally. The fat pads are usually reduced by one to two centimeters (fold volume) per session. The fold volume is measured before and after every treatment session in order to assess the results objectively. Depending on your requirements, several sessions may be needed.
What are the side effects?
Some possible side effects are: itching, hyperthermia, sore muscle symptoms, swelling and redness. However, these side effects subside very quickly such that the treatment doesn’t affect your ability to resume work. Ibuprofen, or cooling is recommended for patients sensitive to pain. Applying compressions on treated areas helps alleviate discomfort and optimizes the effectiveness of the treatment: abdominal bandages for the belly, or compression tights for the leg and buttocks.
What does the treatment cost?
The costs depend primarily on your individual wishes and requirements. For example: the first session for an abdominal treatment session including consultation, documentation, lipolysis injection, material costs and one-time ultrasound is 680 Euro. The second session costs 480 Euro. The less work required, the lower the costs – a double chin treatment costs 100 Euro.
It may be helpful to know that the costs can be paid in monthly installments. Therefore we work together with medipay, a specialist for patient installment payments. Click here for further information.
