Surgeons Still Warning Of The Dangers Of Lipodissolve

There are millions of overweight people around the globe today, with expanding waistlines from the UK to Italy to Russia. Besides diet and exercise, the only way to get rid of those unwanted pounds has been invasive liposuction... until now, according to the makers of Lipodissolve - an injectable fat dissolver new to the market.

It's not the idea of an injectable fat dissolver that doctors are concerned about, but the substances that make-up this possibly toxic cocktail and their lack of FDA approval. Lipodissolve is primarly made of two medications, phosphatidylcholine and a detergent, deoxycholate. Deoxycholate is a powerful detergent that is often used by cardiac surgeons to dissolve blood clots. It may be the most disturbing ingredient of Lipodissolve, as it can dissolve any other tissue as well: blood vessle tissue, fat, muscle and even bone.

That's not the only concern. A Lipodissolve study in Brazil found that the break down of large amounts of fat which must be flushed from the body's endocrine system can lead to liver failure. Another concern is the 80% to 90% rate at which patients experience lumps and nodules under the skin. Often, these can lead to large, permanent scars.

There are many other, minimally invasive procedures in development which may be able to melt fat without liposuction, or the dangers of Lipodissolve, like the Titan laser. Some of them involve lasers that can also tighten the skin while ridding you of fat and cellulite. Tumescent liposuction is still much safer, as it has been performed successfully for over two decades. For less pain and swelling with guaranteed results, SFP suggests examining SmartLipo and VASER-assisted liposuction.
