What is Lipodissolve?
Looking at a Lipodissolve advertisement, it looks like the real deal almost like a miracle. A non-surgical alternative to liposuction where all you need is a few injections and the fat in your body will magically melt away. You know what they say about things that sound too good to be true. The more research we did on Lipodissolve, the less attractive it looked.
The biggest con about Lipodissolve is its questionable effectiveness. There are no credible scientific studies on Lipodissolve that show that it has the ability to significantly melt fat in the body. Considering the cost of getting Lipodissolve will measure in the thousands of dollars, questionable effectiveness in not good enough. Let’s take a closer look at Lipodissolve.
What’s in Lipodissolve?
There is no set ingredient list for Lipodissolve. Different doctors use different ingredients. Typical ingredients used in the injection process include:
- alpha lipid acid
- plant extracts
There are some studies that back phosphatidylcholine’s ability to break down fat, but there are no clinical studies that back it when used in injections.
Is Lipodissolve approved by the FDA?
Lipodissolve is considered an “experimental treatment” and is not approved by the FDA to work. The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery recently announced results of a study of seven Lipodissolve participants. According to the study after treatments, the average amount of fat lost on the abdomen was 1 centimeter. We wouldn’t term 1 centimeter of fat a substantial or noticeable weight loss, but it is something.
How much is Lipodissolve?
Lipodissolve costs can run anywhere between $500-$1500 per treatment. Typical users will receive 6 treatments. 6X$1000=$6,000. E-X-P-E-N-S-I-V-E! Obviously costs can go up the more places that you get the injections. This is by far one of the most expensive fat loss treatments. Although it may be able to help you lose a few pounds, don’t expect anything substantial (remember it has not been approved by the FDA).
Another downer about Lipodissolve is that the vast majority of insurance plans don’t cover the procedure, so everything is an out of pocket cost. If your insurance plan covers liposuction and not lipodissolve, liposuction would probably be much cheaper in the end.
Is there a money back guarantee?
There is no money back guarantee. With such a high cost of a procedure, you could probably sue whoever was in charge of injecting you. But it would be highly unlikely that you would win, because without the FDA approval there is no ground for expecting it to work. Plus you would incur more money in litigation fees than you could possibly win. So basically all you can do with Lipodissolve is get the procedure and hope that it works.
Should you get Lipodissolve?
The ultimate decision is up to you. Lipodissolve may be able to help shed a centimeter of fat off your body, but considering the risks and high price, Lipodissolve is not worth it.
