One of the principal requests of the men, attentive to their appearance is represented by the elimination of localized fat deposits that often do not respond to a correct and balanced diet or at a proper physical activity. The most requested areas are represented by the abdomen and hips, but the therapy can also be useful in other part of the body such as double chin and male Gynecomastia (fat excess on the breast ). In all these areas there are some particular fat cells that do not respond to a diet.
After a careful examination in outpatient clinic, a specific diet and local therapies will be recomended .The local therapy directly attacks the areas of fat accumulation and clearly this will happen when the patient is closer to his ideal weight. The local medical therapy is represented from “ Intralipotherapy. “
The Intralipotherapy is not a surgical treatment for the reduction and / or elimination of localized fat. Is injected into the fat a particular solution that is able to determine the adipocyte lysis . This technique is used since 2003 and the protocol is now codified and establishes the dosage, frequency of the sessions and a precise mode of infiltration into the subcutaneous tissue. Phosphatidycoline is One of the product , certainly well known, used in such solutions , but contrary to what you think, it is not such a substance on its own to have the lipoclasic effect, that is the destruction of adipocytes but this is also attributable to the presence of other substances
The therapy is not indicated as a treatment for overweight or obesity but an appropriate diet will be initially indicated, and subsequently the localized fat deposits will be treated
The treatment is performed in outpatient clinic and the patient can immediately come back to his normal activities.
With the patient standing are evaluated the areas to be treated and possibly making a mapping. Subsequently, with the patient lying down, are injected deeply in the fat (see image), (using needles of appropriate length), small doses of the solution so as to distribute it uniformly over the entire traced area. Normally in each session are treated two mirror regions , keeping in mind not to exceed a well- defined quantity of the active principle.
In literature are not reported significant side effects for the above-mentioned substances, even if risks of intolerance to medication may always be present. Some symptoms immediately present after the session are considered normal and not side effects: burning sensation in the treated area for an hour and a swelling that will remain for about 2 days or more.
To obtain a good result are usually sufficient 3 - 4 sessions spaced at one month apart.
very satisfactory results and even more if the patient follows the given advice (diet and physical activity). Such treatment may represent an alternative to a liposuction surgery. In cases of small or middle entity and can also find discrete applications in cases of irregularities afetr a liposuction surgery.
