Regional Slimming

Bölgesel Incelme (Mezolipoliz) - Doç. Dr. Çiğdem Karadağ - İstanbul

The procedures performed to get rid of herniated fat pockets in the jowl region and lower eyelid in the face and stubborn fat deposits in the waist, hips and belly regions of the body are called regional slimming or regional thinning. Since such stubborn fats are adipose tissues that cannot be eliminated no matter how much diet or exercise are done, regional slimming procedures are beneficial for the solution of these problems for patients who do not want to have surgery.

Patients who were able to get rid of such fat deposits only with surgical procedures, they can now easily get rid of such problems without having surgery, thanks to the advancing technology.

This procedure is ideal for people with a body mass index below 30%. It is performed not for weight loss, but for regional slimming.

In the mesolipolysis procedure, a herbal medication with a good fat melting effect called phosphatidylcholine is injected into the adipose tissue. This medication impairs the metabolism of fat cells, causing them to die; but recently, extra enzymes have been added to it and a more advanced procedure called biolipolysis has been developed. With this procedure, the fat tissue is destroyed and removed from the body. During the procedure, the medication is injected into the adipose tissue with special-tipped syringes. After the injection, the patient is recommended to drink plenty of water to easily eliminate the destroyed adipose tissue from his or her body.

Mesolipolysis is performed at 10-day intervals, depending on the application area and the tissue structure of the patient.

It is an ideal treatment procedure for patients who suffer from under-eye bags but do not want to have surgery. The number of sessions varies from patient to patient.

When performed by individuals other than specialist physicians, it may cause collapses and asymmetrical appearance in the application area.

After performed, the mesolipolysis procedure should be supported with diet and exercise to achieve permanent fat loss. If the existing weight is not maintained and new fat formation occurs in the patient, it is inevitable for him or her to face the same problems again due to the accumulation of regional excess adipose tissue.
