FDA Warns Against Mesotherapy and Lipodissolve

Again, bad press is abounding over lipodissolve and mesotherapies.

Two forms of safe, aesthetic procedures which have been time tested to be so safe, that there have been no deaths or hospitalizations in relation to either of these procedures.

Clearly, these procedures threaten those that would have you believe that plastic surgery is the only way to achieve a reduction in fat, or tighter skin.

There have been medical spas that have behaved badly over the years:
Strong marketing campaigns Forceful contract ploys getting payments up front
These certainly have been bad for the industry, but they are in no way the majority, nor do they affect the actual reality of the procedures.

In fact, most individual medical offices that offer these procedures, do not engage in these marketing ploys, that has been only the behavior of corporate spa chains.

Lipodissolve does melt away external soft fat, but it is not a weight loss procedure, just a spot fat proedure.

Mesotherapy can be great for cellulite reduction, skin tightening, skin brightening and pain management. I do not recommend it for spot fat reduction, as lipodissolve is much better.

There will always be corporate entities willing to sacrifice ethical behavior for a quick buck, but this should not color the procedures, just the marketing methods.

Look for a doctor that doesn’t have a hard sell. One that comes recommended and that will give you an honest answer regarding your outcome.

If you are very overweight, this is not an answer for you, with the exception of your chin or neck.

Any doctor that recommends lipodissolve on your belly when you are clearly obese, is too anxious for business to give you an honest answer.
