The treatment starts with a consultation in our office. From there, treatment is going to be customized to meet your needs.

The deoxycholic acid is designed to immediately destroying the fat cells. The treatment is performed in our office and take around 20 minutes. Since this is a non-surgical treatment, you will not need general anesthesia.
The treatment will vary from patient to patient. It may be that you have a small amount of fat to remove, so one treatment is all you need. Many patients have a considerable amount of fat to remove, so they may need up to six treatments to get the outcome they want. The majority of people have a noticeable improvement after their first treatment.
