Needle lipolysis is a regional slimming method performed by injecting phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate drugs into the fat tissue. The drugs we apply while performing this procedure in our clinic help to melt the fat in that area. The two medicines we use are substances already present in the human body. These substances help to distribute fat and cholesterol evenly in the body and keep cholesterol and fat levels in balance. When the fat ratio in the body becomes unbalanced, regional thinning is possible with the needle lipolysis method.
Side Effects of Needle Lipolysis
The side effects of needle lipolysis are pain, erythema, itching, temperature increase and edema in the application area immediately after this procedure. These side effects may occur within 15 minutes to 72 hours. This kind of sensitivity at the application sites sometimes lasts for a day. Side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain can be seen in patients with high regional fat ratio, especially in injections of 1200 milligram dose.
Effect of Needle Lipolysis
The effect of needle lipolysis is that when lipolysis is injected into the body, it increases the permeability of the cell membrane and the broken down fat cells are destroyed by the liver. Therefore, this method we apply helps to reduce the number of fat cells. It is very effective in increasing fat cell proliferation, especially in numerical type. Based on these effects, it is possible to say that fat in certain areas will completely disappear. In addition, our needle lipolysis method can easily eliminate regional fat accumulations in your body without causing skin loosening. This method is a method that increases fat burning naturally.
When Does Lipolysis Start?
The duration of effect of lipolysis may vary according to the person. The number of sessions will vary according to the fatness problem of the person who wants to have needle lipolysis. After the application, the effect of the needles should be monitored and needle lipolysis should be performed at intervals of at least 2 weeks. The results of the first session begin to be seen clearly after approximately 2 to 3 weeks. But the melting will continue for a longer period of time. As we mentioned, the number of sessions can vary according to the person’s problem, usually ranging from 3 to 6 sessions or 4 to 8 sessions.
Which Areas Is Needle Lipolysis Applied?
The areas where needle lipolysis can be applied are postpartum fat masses, regional fat deposits under the chin, arms, abdomen, waist and hips, thighs and legs. It is non-alternative in the treatment of back fat deposits seen in male individuals. In addition, the results are permanent as long as a balanced diet is applied and supported by exercise after the needle lipolysis method.
The Difference of Needle Lipolysis from Other Methods
The difference of needle lipolysis is that first and foremost, the fat is melted and excreted, and this whole process is in the body’s own natural flow. The injected substances increase the fluidity and permeability of the fat cell membranes, helping to remove body fat. A natural metabolic process is activated in the fat tissues where the drugs themselves are injected. The reason why it is natural is that the substances used in needle lipolysis injections are already naturally present in the body. One of the biggest differences is that the process proceeds naturally and slowly. Thus, a deep fat removal occurs and this regional slimming method becomes permanent.
The needle lipolysis method returns the injected fat cells to their normal size and even destroys many of them. As it is known, once the fat cell is destroyed, it does not regenerate. This process can be confused with liposuction because it completely destroys some fat cells, but in the liposuction method, a surgical intervention is performed and the fat is directly vacuumed. The needle lipolysis method initiates a natural process and offers a healthy slimming process.
It should also be noted that it is mandatory to wear a corset after liposuction surgery in order not to deform the body shape. And the bruising and edema from the surgery lasts for a long time. After needle lipolysis, you can directly continue your social life normally.
Does Needle Lipolysis Method Feel Pain or Soreness During Application?
Pain is absolutely not felt in the needle lipolysis method. It is applied with extremely fine-tipped needles similar to mesotherapy needles. Slight redness, tenderness, heat increase and sometimes tiny bruises can be seen in the treated areas. However, these side effects disappear in a short time.
Treatments Using Needle Lipolysis
Needle lipolysis is a method used in many treatments. This is the way we do it;
- In all areas with regional fat,
- Especially in the abdomen, buttocks, legs, arms and neck,
- Removing under-eye fat bags,
- Eliminating cellulite problem,
- It can be used in the treatment of breast growth disorder known as gynecomastia.
Who Cannot Use Needle Lipolysis?
There are some groups of people to whom needle lipolysis cannot be applied. The people to whom our method cannot be applied can be listed as follows:
- People with heart failure
- People with diabetes
- People with liver and kidney disease
- Mothers who are pregnant or breastfeeding
- Patients on anticoagulant therapy
Things to Consider After Needle Lipolysis
There are some points to be considered after needle lipolysis.
- Since fats are broken down through the liver, alcohol should never be consumed during the recovery period of the treatment. We warn our needle lipolysis patients not to drink alcohol.
- Sunbathing and solarium should also be avoided during needle lipolysis treatment. When the treatment process is completely over and the tenderness and bruises on the skin heal, there is no harm in day-matching for our patients to whom we apply needle lipolysis.
Experts’ Perspective on Needle Lipolysis
Experts give positive feedback for needle lipolysis. Needle lipolysis is a method that can be used to eliminate excess regional fat that is resistant to diet and even sports. For this reason, people with general obesity are not good candidates for needle lipolysis.
The success rate is very high in people with localized fat accumulation in the arms, legs, neck, abdomen and buttocks. We know that needle lipolysis application is effective in the removal of deformities due to adiposity, cellulite treatment, gynecomastia, removal of fat around the eyes, and removal of detention bags.
In addition, with the needle lipolysis method, deformities in the waist, hips, belly, back, back, under the chin and knee due to adiposity can be easily eliminated. In fact, people who have undergone surgical fat removal prefer needle lipolysis treatment for the deformities that occur after this surgical procedure.
What is Cryolipolysis?
Cold lipolysis is a method that attracts attention among body shaping types. This method allows the cells to be frozen and lysed. Just like the effect of needle lipolysis, it helps to melt resistant fat stores that do not disappear despite regular exercise and diet.
When fat cells are exposed to cold, they carry out programmed cell death called apoptosis, which is defined as cold-induced paniculitis. Thanks to this programmed cell death feature of fat cells, the cold lipolysis method was developed. Successful results have been obtained especially in body areas with resistant regional adiposity.
Before the cold lipolysis method is performed, the area to be performed is massaged with a hand apparatus with a low vacuum function. The fat cells are heated to 45 degrees Celsius and then cooled to -10 degrees Celsius, a process that helps them adapt to normal body temperature. In this case, fat cells, which are kept for about 1 hour, enter the programmed cell death phase. Fat cells shrink and their damage is broken down and excreted outside the body.
