Fat Dissolving is a wonderfully advanced treatment that permanently reduces fat in targeted areas to carefully sculpt the body and restore confidence, particularly to pin-point certain areas with precision and expertise.

The treatment uses an active ingredient – deoxycholic acid – which naturally occurs within the body. Its role is to break down and digest the fats in our diet.

Within aesthetics, it’s administered via multiple injections as part of a course of 4-6 sessions – its effects result in specific areas of fat being permanently dissolved. After the first 3 sessions, most clients see a reduction of fat at around 20-50%. Subsequent treatments and completion of the course see a final outcome of between 70% and 80% reduction in the area.

Fat Dissolving can not be used as an alternative to a healthy balanced diet and active lifestyle, but as an incredible and supplementary treatment to target stubborn areas or ‘pockets’ of fat that linger despite regular exercise. The lasting effect will highly depend on the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle.

Under the chin is a common area to treat, but areas such as the arms, hips, abdomen and legs can also be treated and will be discussed in detail at the time of consultation. The procedure is minimally invasive with low risk of complications. Common side effects of swelling and bruising tend to subside after around 4 days.

Your SAS Aesthetics doctor will assess your requirements and advise you on a tailored treatment plan and aftercare.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do fat dissolving injections work?

There are different brands of fat dissolving solutions however the main ingredient in most is a substance called “deoxycholic acid”. This is naturally found in our gallbladder and is released by the body to break down and digest fats in our diet. In aesthetics a form of deoxycholic acid is used which is safe for injection. Following multiple sessions this results in a permanent breakdown of fat.

Where is this treatment best suited for?

The main area it’s used for is under the chin, it can also be used to dissolve stubborn fat in different parts of the body. It can’t act as a replacement for a healthy diet and exercise but it can target those areas of fat pockets that do not disappear despite a healthy diet and exercise.

How much change will I see?

Most clients need to have 3-6 sessions to achieve a result. The first 3 sessions result in a 20-30% reduction of the fat however subsequent sessions will reduce the fat mass more significantly with upto 70-80% reduction seen in the final outcome.

Will I have severe swelling?

The new lipolysis treatments cause minimal swelling which resolves over a 3-5 day period.

I came to this clinic and had fox eyes and lip filler done. 3 months later i came back because i loved my results so much the first time i wanted a touch up while keeping things looking as natural as possible.. Dr. Mahsa is an artist. I asked for natural Lips and although we used enough filler, they look so amazing. I couldnt be happier! As for the fox eyes I dont think there is a more experienced doctor performing these treatments. Could'nt recommend enough! Thank you for giving me such a confidence boost SAS. See you again next year ;)
