Lipodissolve: Too Good To Be True?



Good Morning America and 20/20 have recently broadcast investigations of Lipodissolve. Click here for their online story: 'Lunchtime Lipo' Draws Concern From Doctors. There is also a link to a streaming video of the GMA segment, where some patients are interviewed who developed disastrous results.

A few points:
1. If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
2. If you have a doctor perform a cosmetic procedure who is not a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, be very wary.
3. I don't perform Lipodissolve, but I am interested in learning how it may be done safely. If it is performed on patients, then patients must be informed first about potential risks, potential for little or no benefit, and that the injections are not FDA-approved for that purpose.
4. Stay away from fake plastic surgeons.
5. If you absolutely must lose fat in a nontraditional way, then click here.

It's an interesting study, and raises some questions. I will do some research and get back to this...

Dr youn,
Have you considered the issue of prevention. I don't know if you read the article like http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2002/04/17/cattle1.aspx It talks about how the beef that we eat is raised...I believe it to be horifiying that the American people are being fed this crap and the government wont stop it. The Europian countries have put a ban on such meat but Americans eat it without many of them realizing what they eat. I appologize for such a long winded comment, but would we even need Lipodissolve or other bogus fat ridding crap if we ate healthy stuff?
