Dr. Perkins and Dr. Stolar offer the Mesotherapy (lipodissolve technique) microinjection procedure for nonsurgical fat reduction of the face and body. Areas commonly treated include jowls, neck, waist, thighs, buttocks, abdomen, as well as the upper back and posterior underarm fat above and below the bra. The procedure reduces localized fat deposits in these areas without the risk and recovery period of surgery. A smoother contour with tighter appearing skin is achieved.


How does it work?

After a thorough evaluation to ensure that you are a proper candidate for the procedure. You will be given numerous small injections that will slowly liquefy fat that will be eliminated gradually over 4 to 6 weeks. It may require more than one session to achieve your goals, but the results are long lasting without damage to remaining fat cells. Each session can visibly reduce more than one inch of circumferential fat. The injections are very well tolerated with a minimum of discomfort.


Is it safe?

Lipodissolve is set protocol advanced by the American Society of Aesthetic Lipodissolve (ASAL) using a specific combination of pharmaceutical agents, mostly Phosphatidylcholine. The Lipodissolve technique uses medications that have been FDA-approved to treat fat emboli. It is used in Europe to treat heart and liver conditions and has also been shown to decrease triglycerides and hyperinsulinemia. Over 18,000 procedures have been performed by more than 430 physician members of ASAL. There have been no major complications reported in this group. Minor side effects have included transient diarrhea lasting less than 24 hours with high dosages, itching, redness, bruising, swelling, and a burning sensation all localized to the treated area, and usually lasting for 1-3 days. Every patient treated by Dr.Perkins has been able to return to work by the next day, and most have returned to exercise the next day as well. There have been numerous publications in the peer reviewed American Literature.


Is this mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy is similar to Lipodissolve however many practitioners of Mesotherapy including non-physicians, use chemicals that are not standardized to quantity or dose. Consequently results are often unpredictable and more likely to have adverse reactions. Lipodissolve was created by the ASAL to standardize the technique using Phosphatidylcholine with a set treatment protocol producing more reliable results and greater safety.
