An Alternative to Liposuction. Lipoliquidation or Lipodialysis

Even though liposuction methods have been greatly refined and simplified since the initial onset of this method of plastic surgery, there still remain however a large amount of people who, had they had an alternative choice of dealing with their fatty deposits other than the method which is currently and most widely used by plastic surgeons, they would have done so.

If you are one of those people who would have liked to have dealt with your stubborn fatty deposits but, who just can't quite come to terms with conventional liposuction methods and all that that entails, the surgery (sometimes under general anesthetic), the corsages (usually worn for one to two weeks), and the inevitable bruising then, one the methods outlined below may just very well be the one that suits you.

Lipoliquidation is but one of the newest and, most revolutionary areas of cosmetic surgery which does not entail the use of a lancet. The basic concept regarding lipoliquidation pertains to the use of certain medicines which are injected directly under the skin, and which are designed to fight the problem of stubborn fatty deposits right at the root. The medicinal solutions which are injected into the problem areas ruin the lining of the fatty-cells releasing, in turn, the fat, thereby allowing the body's natural excretion mechanisms to expel the fat and toxins from the body. There are a variety of solutions which are available to the plastic surgeon who undertakes lipoliquidation as a method of dealing with fatty deposits. Below are outlined the various solutions available, how they are used and, for what kind of areas of the body they are recommended for.


This refers to a 'cocktail' of vegetable substances which are used primarily in the field of homeopathy in order to stimulate the body's self-repair mechanisms. Homotoxicology is based on the theory that ' an illness is the body's attempt to defend itself from the toxins which have entered it'. The homotoxicological solutions used, reinforce the body's defence mechanisms enabling thus, the body to cure itself. Method of application: a form of injectional therapy is undertaken. Firstly, the dermatologist inserts needles with the substance to be used in the area with the problem and, following this he undertakes a 'systematic' approach by way of placing needles on the patients' foot acupunctional energy points. The homotoxicological substance is then transferred to the fatty tissue causing lipoliquidation. Areas of use: the homotoxicological method is used for thighs, buttocks and calves. There are no side-effects. Furthermore, parallel to the injectional therapy, inversional pressure massage is also undertaken as this assists in the channeling of the lymph through the lymphic route allowing it to be carried out of the body along with the fat.


This pertains to the use of three different solutions which have been found to undertake a 'chemical' attack against the fatty tissues gradually ruining them. The first step is to issue into the body a medicine which tones up the fatty tissues' micro-circulatory system. The second medicine is very drastic and is widely used to counteract high cholesterol levels on people who are hyperlipidynamic. Once the fat has been dissolved, a third medicine, aminophiline which is a diuretic is issued assisting the body in expelling the fat.

Method of application: The medicines used in this form of lipoliquidation are administered alternatively. Injections are undertaken once a week on the various parts of the body. The therapy is repeated on average twelve times meaning that it takes up to three months to undergo the full cycle of therapy. Upon the completion of the therapy the patient sees a 50% improvement and, in two months following the results of the therapy reach the capacity of 100% improvement.

Areas of use: this form of therapy is used to combat local fatty deposits and cellulite on thighs, buttocks, calves, arms and stomach. The injections which the patient undergoes in view of this form of therapy also contain anesthetic so as to minimize pain which may be felt.


Considered as being nature's 'heavy artillery' in the fight against fatty deposits, the artichoke's heart is gaining more and more fans amongst those who want to address their problem in the most natural means as possible. The artichoke's heart extracts are already being used to counteract high cholesterol levels and have also been found to have miraculous lipoliquidation results. The solution which is injected into the patient's body contains artichoke heart extracts, vitamin B1 and anesthetic.

Method of application: The artichoke heart extract is injected by means of very fine needles directly under the epidermis forcing thus, the lipocells to release their fat and toxins and to expel them from the body. Injections are undertaken fortnightly for a span of six months. The patient undergoing treatment begins to see results after two months since the commencement of therapy. Final results are seen eight to ten weeks after the completion of therapy. If the therapy is supplemented with a correct eating regime and exercise, results will last up to tree years. Areas of use: Artichoke heart extract therapy is especially suited in counteracting fatty deposits on thighs, buttocks, calves and stomach areas.


The solutions used in this form of lipoliquidation therapy contain ozone and oxygen which, are currently being used in medicine to deal with problems pertaining to circulatory and neurological disorders and hepatitis to name but a few.

Method of application: The oxygen/ozone solutions used in this form of lipoliquidation therapy affect the fatty tissue's lipid acids by way of transforming them into water soluble combinations. They are then expelled by the body through the urinary system. Furthermore to this, the oxygen/ozone solution used in the lipoliquidation therapy also assists in enhancing the general health, elasticity and texture of the skin. It also, it has powerful anti-inflammatory effect, tones the body's circulatory system, activates the cells' enzymes, enhances the oxygenation of tissues and, fights free radicals.

Areas of use: oxygen/ozone therapy can be undertaken on every part of the face, on knees and calves and is highly recommended in treating cellulite. There are no side effects to this form of treatment and results are visible from the second week of therapy onwards. Also, if the patient is careful in his/her dietary habits and undertakes regular exercise the oxygen/ozone lipoliquidation therapy will have permanent results.
