Are Fat-Dissolving Injections Effective?

Even if you follow a healthy well-balanced diet and get lots of exercise on a regular basis, it can still be difficult to tone up certain parts of your body, with fatty deposits seemingly clinging on for all they’re worth – no matter how hard you try!

Some parts of the body are simply harder to target than others, with common problematic areas including the likes of your belly, your back and the chin area.

It’s important to remember that everyone will experience difficulties in shifting weight from time to time and you’re certainly by no means alone in this, so try to be kind to yourself and don’t beat yourself up over it if the fat is proving difficult to shift.

However, if you do feel as though you might benefit from a helping hand, you might want to consider investigating some kind of cosmetic surgery, such as fat-dissolving injections.


What are fat-dissolving injections?

Injection lipolysis is a relatively new form of treatment that can help you achieve your goals without having to worry about the risks associated with other procedures, such as liposuction.

Of course it’s natural to worry about having an invasive surgical procedure carried out, but you can get around this by opting for the injection instead, a quick non-surgical option that can give you noticeable results within eight weeks or so.

These injections have been designed to target localised fat deposits and have been proven to be highly successful over the years. One of the added benefits – and, no doubt, a big part of the appeal – is that there’s minimal downtime required so you’ll be able to have your injections and then get on with your day, without having to worry about long recovery times.

However, it’s important to bear in mind that these injections are not intended to serve as a weight loss aid and they’re most effective when used alongside exercise and a healthy diet.


Where can fat-dissolving injections be used?

There are many parts of the body you can target using these injections. On the face, for example, you could have procedures carried out in the jowls and double chin, as well as the dorsocervical fat pad.

Also known as the buffalo hump, this is an area of fat accumulation on the back of the neck between the shoulder blades and it can be very hard to get rid of with diet and exercise alone. This is because the fatty deposits have hardened, so a more involved treatment will be required if you do want to get rid of it.

You can also use these treatments to target areas of the upper arms, chest, back and armpits, as well as the tummy and hips, the glutes, the thighs and the knees.
