LipolysisLipolysis is the hydrolysis of lipids. Metabolically, it is the breakdown of triglycerides into free fatty acids within cells. A few years ago this term was used mainly in terms of biochemical reactions, but now it's increasingly used to refer to body sculpting procedures. Just like sculpting a figure, body sculpting is the new term used to describe cosmetic surgery that is intended to change a person's body contours to achieve a perceived perfect physique.

It is most natural for fat to deposit in specific areas of our body and can impact an otherwise perfect physique. These localized fat deposits often are hereditary, such as in the neck, chin, arms, abdomen, breasts, flanks, knees, thighs and buttocks.

Regular massage can be regarded as the very first kind of lipolysis. Indeed, paying attention to the problematic spot fat deposits and applying wisely chosen technique of manual stimulation can increase blood flow to the area, stimulate lymph drainage, improve metabolism and activate local lipolytic process. However, this sort of «manual labor» is not only ineffective, but cannot prevent re-accumulation of fat in the same subcutaneous areas.

Vacuum lipolysis is considered as one of the safest body shaping and contouring surgeries that helps in removing unwanted fat from specific areas. During the procedure, negative pressure is applied to the affected area of the body which results in the increased local blood flow, improved redox reactions, and activated lymph flow. All of the above processes contribute to greater use of local fat deposits in this area of the body. The advantage of the vacuum lipolysis is its higher availability compared to other lipolysis methods. However, vacuum lipolysis can lead to extensive bruising, as the application of negative pressure may lead to rupture of a blood vessel.

Other, more effective and less traumatic methods of lipolysis use electrical current, ultrasound or laser. Electric current has the ability to change the polarity of the fat cells, resulting in their liquefaction. Liquefied fat is then discharged into the intercellular fluid, which is removed along with other products of cell disintegration into the lymph.

Lipolysis is performed by releasing free fatty acids into the bloodstream for them to circulate in the body. Small injections of phosphatidylcholine (PPC) are administered locally, directly into the subcutaneous tissue. Multiple injections will be needed to cover an area. In that region, the local fat deposits are destroyed and the fat stored in the cell is released, which results in a reduction of body circumference in that area. It is said that women respond better to the treatment than men due to the difference in structure of the fat cells and connective tissue.

Phosphatidylcholine is a natural product in our body that helps emulsify fat and cholesterol. It has been used for its cholesterol lowering properties for a long time and it is said to protect the liver. Experts say that lipolysis is good for soft fat, while fibrous fat may be more difficult to treat, as the fat cells only weaken instead of bursting.

Laser lipolysis is less invasive than traditional lipolysis, because there is less bleeding and anesthetic drugs used. In fact, in doing the procedure under tumescent technique, we have eliminated a lot of risks normally associated with general anesthesia.

Lipolysis is considered to be mild when compared to other cosmetic procedures available; although, patients do experience soreness, mild swelling, bruising on the specific areas which lasts for a week or so. Some people have noticed small painless lumps in the area. There have been reported some uncommon side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, fever, diarrhea, and rarely infection and prolonged bruising. Doctors reveal that patients with cardiovascular diseases, malignant disorders, kidney diseases and blood disorders are advised not to undergo this treatment.

Whatever the treatment you undergo, a follow up routine of exercise and a healthy diet is essential to maintain the weight that has been reduced as fat cells can grow fast if a conscious effort is not made to keep them off.
