Lipolysis uses lasers to break fat cells apart, reducing the volume of fatty tissue. This process is also said to tighten the skin in the area where the treatment is applied. You may find that your skin is smoother and tighter than before. Overall, lipolysis offers similar benefits to other fat removal procedures.

Goal of Lipolysis 

Lipolysis targets pockets of fat that have not responded to diet and exercise. It is a cosmetic procedure meant to create body contouring effects in areas such as:3

  • Face and chin
  • Upper arms
  • Abdomen
  • Back
  • Flanks (“love handles”)
  • Thighs
  • Knee area
  • Calves

An injection of the chemical deoxycholic acid is FDA-approved for use in the area underneath the chin (“double chin”).5

Lipolysis does not require general anesthesia, it usually has minimal side effects and downtime, and it involves no incisions or scarring.2

Does Lipolysis Make You Healthier?

The two types of fat in the body are:6

  • Subcutaneous fat (the fat that is noticeable on the outside, such as “fat rolls”)
  • Visceral fat (the fat that lines the organs and is associated with health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease)

Lipolysis targets subcutaneous fat, and does not affect visceral fat. It is meant for cosmetic purposes (usually for people who are already at their desired weight) and will not improve your health.
