Lipodissolve is a plastic surgery procedure designed to remove fat, often from the belly and/or hips. It is an alternative to liposuction, which is an actual surgical procedure that involves cutting. (Most doctors freely admit that Lipodissolve simply cannot remove as much fat as liposuction.) Another name for this procedure is mesotherapy. Even though surgery is not involved, injections are. (A substance is injected into the specified region. The actual ingredients in this "cocktail" vary from medical practice to medical practice, so you will need to ask your medical team about their specific mix of ingredients.)

Supposedly, the Lipodissolve procedure "melts away" pockets of fat. (Note that several Lipodissolve sessions are required.) This article will provide you with information about Lipodissolve, so that you can determine whether or not you think would be a good choice for you.

When considering Lipodissolve, your first step is to read as much as you can find about this procedure. In particular, you will want to read as many Lipodissolve customer reviews as you can. Chances are, you will find reviews written by many dissatisfied customers right off the bat.

One of the Lipodissolve problems that people who have gone through it discuss is the fact that it is not painless. In fact, they state that it is quite painful. (People often choose non-surgical plastic surgery alternatives in the hopes of avoiding pain, so they felt deceived.)

In addition to feeling pain, burning, swelling and other forms of discomfort following their Lipodissolve sessions, several customer reviewers also reported disappointing results, stating that they only lost around an inch (or even less) from their waists, thighs, "love handles" and/or "saddlebags."

Still other people who had undergone a series of Lipodissolve sessions complained quite a bit about the cost of the procedure. (Lipodissolve typically costs several thousands of dollars.)

Also, a significant number of Lipodissolve customers report that they now have little divets, dimples and indentations in their skin. These little indentations can be very difficult to get rid of, which makes them extra frustrating.

In addition to all of these complaints about Lipodissolve side effects and other problems from real life Lipodissolve customers, the procedure has also come under serious scrutiny by a number of plastic surgeons, many of whom have ultimately opted not to include the Lipodissolve procedure in their repertoire of services.

One of the biggest concerns that plastic surgeons have about Lipodissolve is this: While it has been established that the injected substance does indeed liquefy the solid fat that it targets, where that liquefied fat actually goes afterward is anyone's guess.

In your research, you will also come across some reviews from satisfied Lipodissolve customers on the Internet, but with so many negative reviews from unhappy customers, and so many questions being posed within the plastic surgery community, you might want to explore other options, or perhaps wait until the Lipodissolve procedure is refined and improved. You may also want to wait until doctors and researchers have learned the answers to their numerous questions about Lipodissolve, including the unsolved mystery about where the fat actually goes once it has been liquefied.
