Lipólisis con Fosfatidilcolina y Desoxicolato. Indicaciones y resultados

Institute BCN participa en el 5CC Barcelona del 29 de agosto al 1 de septiembre de 2019. Nos encontrará en el stand #10.

Nuestra colaboradora la Dra. Sylvie Lederlé dará la charla «Lipólisis con Fosfatidilcolina y Desoxicolato. Indicaciones y resultados» el viernes 30 de agosto a partir de la las 9h dentro del bloque de ponencias «My body is my castle».

A continuación está el resumen de la conferencia (disponible sólo en inglés):

Chemical adipolysis: Since the development of liposuction, there have been successive attempts to develop treatments to reduce localized adipose tissue deposits. Lipolysis is a technique of dissolving stored fat, using Phosphatidylcholine (PPC) in association with Deoxycolate (DOC) in order to achieve a sculpting effect by non-surgical means. It can only be of use on small fat deposits.

Mode of action: DOC together with PPC activates lipases inducing membrane breakdown. The released lipid particles are emulsified, dissolved, and transported by high-density lipoproteins (HDL) to the liver.

Indications: Any localization where fat can be pinched between 2 fingers. On the Body mainly abdominal fat, but also hips, innner thigh, knees, inner arms, lower part of the buttocks… On the face mainly double chin, but also lower part of the cheeks and face contour.

Treatment modalities: Injections must be performed in the fat layer, below 5 mm and up to 15 mm below the skin, depending on the thickness of the fat deposit. A grid pattern from 1- to 1.5-cm between the injection points is recommended. PPC acts over the course of more than 8 weeks, which means that there should be a two-month interval between sessions on the same area.

Post-Operative Outcome: Edema, along with mild pain and redness, lasting from 1-4 days and bruises are common. Paresthesia, small temporary nodules, and site infections have been reported.

Side Effects: Cases of necrosis have been seen due to injections being performed too superficially. With higher quantities than recommended, nausea, diarrhea, light-headedness, and headaches have been reported. No signs of inflammation, or any change has been detected in blood work post treatment, such as increased glycemia, cholesterol, or lipid values.

CONCLUSION: Lipolysis associating PPC and DOC is a very efficient treatment for small fat deposits with very moderate side effects. Good complimentary method to liposuction or cryolipolysis.
