Injection lipolysis is a non-surgical method of removing localised fat deposits. It consists of subcutaneous administration of a product called Aqualyx, which eliminates the fat deposited in the area.
The product is administered into the fat tissue and causes the fat cells (adipocytes) to burst. On entering the cells, it causes breakup of triglycerides. It is then transported with the lipoproteins to the liver, where the fats are broken down and then removed from the body by the kidneys.
