Fat dissolving

Fat dissolving injections target and effectively reduce small and stubborn fat pockets, providing a tight and more contoured appearance. The treatment is often described as ‘non-surgical liposuction’ because of its ability to reduce fat without surgery or downtime.

Fat dissolving injections contain a substance called phosphatidylcholine (PC), which is a natural compound derived from soybean. When injected directly into fat pockets, it causes the fat cells to rupture and breakdown via the body’s usual metabolic process, resulting in a more contoured shape.  

Fat dissolving injections are used to treat any part of the body where there are small, defined fat pockets. Popular areas include: chin, hips, thighs and stomach.


Results vary depending on the area treated but are typically visible after four to eight weeks with optimal results at 12 weeks. Results last up to two years. One to four treatments, spaced six to eight weeks apart, are recommended to achieve the best result.  


  • Avoid blood-thinning medication such as aspirin, ibuprofen and fish oil, one week prior  



Prior to your first treatment, our doctor will consult with you to assess your suitability for fat dissolving injections  and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.  

The treatment involves a series of small injections of the prescribed product directly into unwanted fat pockets. The injections may sting for a few seconds, and in some instances a numbing agent will be used.
