KYBELLA® and Lipodissolve:
- KYBELLA® (deoxycholic acid), the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to reduce fat under the chin. it contains 10% deoxycholic acid.
- Lipodissolve is a custom compounded solution consisting of 40% deoxycholic acid which makes is 4x more concentrated than KYBELLA® and its use for spot fat reduction on many areas of the body is considered “off-label”.
The results and the incidence of side effects from Lipodissolve injections depend on the compounded medication used and the skill of the treatment provider. Dr. Malik has provided Lipodissolve for spot fat reduction to her patients since 2005 after extensive training Lipodissolve for fat reduction and we get our Lipodissolve from a PCAB accredited pharmacy in Dallas.
KYBELLA® and Lipodissolve Fat Reduction- How Does It Work?
Recently KYBELLA® has been widely promoted in popular media after its FDA approval in 2015 for reduction of submental fat or “double chin”.KYBELLA® is the only FDA approved injection therapy in the US for spot fat reduction of submental fat. The medication in KYBELLA® is deoxycholic acid 10 mg/mL and it works by breaking down the fat cells and resorption of fat by your body’s lymphatic system with subsequent removal. We have seen excellent results with KYBELLA®for reduction of localized fat below the chin with hardly any side effects. There are mild swelling and tenderness in the treatment area for a few days following the treatment.
The Lipodissolve solution contains 4x deoxycholic acid than KYBELLA® and has been used for over two decades in France and Italy for spot fat reduction of stubborn fat in various areas of the body. We use KYBELLA® for spot fat reduction of submental fat (double chin) in Dallas and Southlake and Lipodissolve for spot fat reduction of stubborn fat on different areas of the body. Just like KYBELLA®, the Lipodissolve treatment leads to the breakdown of fat cells and release of fat which is removed by your body’s lymphatic and vascular systems. We have seen excellent results with Lipodissolve for non-surgical spot fat reduction and body contouring. We do not recommend Lipodissolve for weight loss.

How Is The Lipodissolve Spot Fat Reduction Done?
For your Lipodissolve spot fat reduction, you will be evaluated by Dr. Malik to make sure that you are a right candidate for this treatment. We do not recommend Lipodissolve for individuals with severe and uncontrolled systemic medical illnesses such as uncontrolled diabetes, uncontrolled high blood pressure, severe liver or kidney disease. We do not recommend Lipodissolve if there is a localized skin infection. Your stubborn fat areas, treatment goals, the possible number of treatments needed, and realistic expectations are discussed before the treatment. The treatment area is marked, photographed and cleaned with a surgical cleanser. The Lipodissolve medication is injected with a very fine needle into the excess fat.
What To Expect After The Lipodissolve Spot Fat Reduction?
There is swelling, redness, tenderness and sometimes itching and heat sensation starting immediately after the injection. This is due to histamine release from the medication. An over the counter oral antihistamine such as Benadryl or Zyrtec may help reduce these symptoms. You may take ibuprofen 200-400 mg every 6-8 hours for 3-4 days to reduce discomfort for 2-3 days following your spot fat reduction. We recommend that you apply ice packs for a few hours after the treatment and wear compression garments for certain areas such as the lower abdomen, thighs, love handles and saddle bags for 2-3 days to contain swelling. We re-evaluate your treated area 3-6 weeks after the each treatment for the need of successive treatments.
How Much Fat Will I Lose With Lipodissolve?
You are expected to have 20-25% reduction in localized fat deposit with each Lipodissolve treatment, individual results vary widely with genetics, lifestyle, the size of the fat deposit and other factors that determine your unique fat metabolism. Most of our patients get their desired results for each treated area with 3-4 treatments placed 3-6 weeks apart.
* The use of Lipodissolve for spot fat reduction is considered “off-label” and is at physician discretion. Off-label use of medications is very common in practice of medicine is completely legal.
*A few years ago, Lipodissolve gained rapid popularity in the media and there were several less than optimal treatments performed by “spas” with sub-standard Lipodissolve preparation and non-medical injectors, this led to complications such as skin infections, ulcerations etc and FDA issued a warning.
According to the FDA warning letter dated April 7, 2010 :
” The U.S. Food and Drug Administration today issued warning letters to six U.S. based medical spas and a company in Brazil for making false or misleading statements on their Web sites about drugs they claim will eliminate fat in a procedure called “Lipodissolve,” or for otherwise misbranding Lipodissolve products.
The U.S. companies involved have made claims that the drugs they use for their Lipodissolve procedures are safe and effective; however, these products have not been evaluated or approved by the FDA for this use.
Lipodissolve is a procedure involving a series of drug injections intended to dissolve and permanently remove small pockets of fat from various parts of the body. It also is known as mesotherapy, lipozap, lipotherapy, or injection lipolysis. The most commonly injected drugs are phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholate, usually in various combinations with one another…..
