Testimonials

Fat Dissolving Injections is a treatment that helps to dissolve stubborn fat deposits simply and non-surgically. Many people suffer from stubborn areas of fat which are resistant to regular exercise. Sometimes even a strict dietary and exercise regime fails to reduce these stubborn areas of fat deposits. This is due to the way our fat cells are structured in these areas. Our body naturally stores fat so that it can be used to release energy when required.

Fat Dissolving Injections is a treatment which can be carried out only by a doctor. Our specialist cosmetic doctor, Dr Kieren Bong is one of the first doctors in Britain to be trained in this procedure. His extensive experience and skills enables him to offer the advanced technique and formulation, ensuring a superior result with virtually no discomfort at all. Only a small handful of doctors have been trained in the advanced technique and formulation.

This treatment can be administered over the entire body specifically in the following areas:

  • Double chin
  • Jowl
  • Upper arms / Bingo wings
  • Stomach
  • Love handles / waist
  • Hips
  • Inner / Outer thighs
  • Buttocks
  • Knees
  • Back
  • Breast (men) / Moobs
  • Bra bulge

Fat Dissolving Injections FAQ

How does Fat Dissolving Injections work?

We use a specialist medication. The active ingredient of this medication induces a process called lipolysis, where the fat cells rupture and die. This process begins with it breaking down the fat cell wall, releasing the fatty acid that is stored within. The body's lymphatic system then removes the fatty liquid through the venous system, where it is then processed in the same way as fatty foods are digested.

Your consultation

We encourage all our prospective patients to make an appointment for a consultation. A consultation prior to any treatment is required. During the consultation, we will analyse your issues, examine your face and/or and discuss the range of treatment options available. There is absolutely no obligation at all for you to take up any treatment and the consultation may or may not lead to your having this treatment.

What areas can Fat Dissolving Injections treat?

Fat Dissolving Injections is a Doctor only procedure and are carried out exclusively by our specialist cosmetic doctor, Dr Kieren Bong. This treatment can be administered over the entire body specifically in the following areas: • Double Chin • Jowl • Upper arms / Bingo wings • Stomach • Love handles • Waist • Hips • Inner / outer thighs • Buttocks • Knees • Back • Breast (men) / Moobs • Bra Bulge

Before your Fat Dissolving Injections

Before having your procedure you will attend an initial complimentary consultation with our specialist cosmetic doctor. At your consultation you can discuss all aspects of the procedure so you can decide if the Fat Dissolving Injections is the right treatment for you, where upon our cosmetic doctor will decide if you are suitable to have this treatment. This free assessment usually takes around 30 minutes. Please note that this treatment is contraindicated if you are pregnant or breast feeding. Please advise our cosmetic doctor if you are diabetic or have severe allergies.

During your Fat Dissolving Injections

Treatment takes around 30-40 minutes depending on the area(s) of the body being treated. Using an innovative technique to minimise the number of injections, an ultra-fine needle is inserted directly into the fatty tissue, beneath the skin. Usually 2 injection points are required per area treated, with the amount of product varying according to the size of the area. Local anaesthetic is added to the solution before injection to improve patient comfort resulting in a virtually pain free treatment.

After your Fat Dissolving Injections

Immediately after treatment the treated area(s) will become swollen which may last a few days. Mild redness is not uncommon. However these temporary side effects quickly subside. There is a possibility of bruising and it is recommended that arnica tablets are taken a few days prior to treatment. Results are seen gradually over the next 3 – 4 weeks post treatment.

How do I maximise the effects of my Fat Dissolving Injections?

To maximise the effects of Fat Dissolving Injections we recommend you take the following aftercare steps: • Avoid applying any cosmetics within the first 12 hours. • Avoid all direct sources of heat i.e. sun, UV radiation, saunas etc. • Abstain from particularly demanding physical exercise for one week post treatment. • Follow a healthy diet and gentle exercise regime. • Gently massage the treated area(s) daily between procedures • Normal skincare / make up routines can be performed without excess pressure 12 hours post procedure. Results may vary as each individual is different.

What are the side effects?

Fat Dissolving Injections is a medical procedure that should always be carried out by a doctor. It is safe and effective. However some redness and swelling is to be expected following treatment, which normally subsides within a few days. Bruising and needle marks are a possible side effect, which may also last a few days. Take pain killers to relieve any discomfort and swelling (i.e. Paracetamol).

What can I expect to see after my first treatment and how long will it take for me to start noticing the effects?

Results are seen gradually over the next 3 – 4 weeks post treatment and maximum effect can take up to 12 weeks. The treated area(s) will look smaller, with less fat build-up. The treatment uses a special formula to break down fat cells in the treated area(s), and your body works to flush out the liquefied fat itself; therefore, depending on your own physiology, the process may take a short while, or a longer period of time.

How soon will I see my results?

How long will the effect of the treatment last?

The treatment is permanent as the fat cells are destroyed. As the fat cells are converted into energy, it is important that you keep a strict and healthy diet, and exercise regime during the treatment process. Fat Dissolving Injections does not result in weight loss.

How many treatments are required?

The number of treatments required will vary according to volume of localized fat, the desired degree of correction and the individual's reaction of the fat tissue. Our specialist cosmetic doctor has extensive experience in this treatment and is one of the very few doctors in Britain to use the advanced technique and formulation. Our patients have seen superior results compared to other the majority of other clinics which only offer basic treatment protocol. On average you should expect at least 2 treatments carried out at 6-8 weekly intervals. Small areas of localised fat e.g. chin/jowls may only require 1-2 treatments.

Is Fat Dissolving Injections safe?

The specialist fat dissolving medication we use is very safe with full CE approval. Only doctors who have received special training are authorized to perform this treatment. Dr Bong is widely recognised as one of Europe's top cosmetic doctors and he is one of the only small number of doctors in Britain who has the experience and skills to offer the advanced technique and formulation for a more effective result.

When is Fat Dissolving Injections most effective?

This treatment is most effective when the amount of fat is not too dense. It's ideal for cellulite or smaller areas of fat. It does not result in weight loss, and will not solve serious weight issues. You should maintain a healthy lifestyle, additionally, in order to maximise the results of the treatment.

Is Fat Dissolving Injections right for me?

If you are frustrated by the resistance of certain body areas to diet and exercise and you are healthy and seeking a non-surgical, virtually pain-free solution to losing stubborn fat deposits, then the Fat Dissolving Injections could be your answer. Ideal candidates are typically at or near their ideal weight.

What can I expect from my consultation and will I have treatment the same day as my consultation?

You are required to have a one-to-one consultation with our specialist cosmetic doctor, Dr Kieren Bong. In the consultation he will examine the areas you wish treated. Dr Bong will then offer you a treatment plan and quote you a price. He will also discuss in detail the advantages and disadvantages of this treatment and give you an idea how many sessions you will require to see the best result. Unfortunately, you will not be able to have the treatment on the same visit. However, if you are travelling from a distance, please do let us know in advance so we can try to accommodate your circumstances.

How much does the treatment cost?

Dr Bong is one of the only small number of doctors in Britain who has the experience and skills to offer the advanced technique and formulation. The cost of your Fat Dissolving Injections depends on the size of the area(s) being treated and the number of areas you have done at one treatment session. One area typically costs from £350-£500 per treatment for both sides of your body. Exact cost of your treatment will be advised following your free consultation.

What is your booking and cancellation policy?

When we book an appointment for you, we commit that time and our resources to your treatment. This means that, if anyone else wants to come at the same time, we will be unable to see them and will have to offer them an alternative time. If you do not then attend that appointment and either do not tell us in advance or give insufficient notice, we are unable to allocate the time to someone else; however, we still have overheads and staff salaries to pay during the unproductive time.

Deposits and your credit/debit card details

Unlike other clinics, we do not take any advance deposit or booking fee. The only exception is our Ultrasound Facial treatment where a nominal non-refundable deposit of £50 is required because an external skin therapist is being brought in specially to carry out the procedure for you. This deposit will be redeemed against your Ultrasound Facial treatment. You will be advised at the time of booking if this applies to you.

We make appointments with the expectation that you will attend at the agreed date & time to undergo your treatment; if you change your mind or work/other commitments prevent you from attending, we ask you to give us a minimum of 48 hours’ notice (excluding Sunday) so that we can reallocate your appointment slot to another customer.

When booking your appointment, you will be asked to provide us your credit/debit card details. This is your confirmation of your commitment to attend your appointment. Please rest assured that no money will be taken from your card and your details will be securely stored but encrypted for your own privacy. We assure you that your details are fully protected and safe with us.

To cancel or reschedule your appointment

If you are unable to attend your appointment for any reason, then you should give us a minimum of 48 hours’ notice.

Please note that Sundays and bank holidays will not be included in these timeframes so notice to cancel or reschedule an appointment scheduled for a Monday or the day after a bank holiday must be given no later than the preceding working day (or the day before the preceding working day.

Specifically, for our Ultrasound Facial treatment where treatment is being undertaken by an external skin therapist who is being brought in specially to carry out the procedure for you, these deadlines do not apply, and your deposit will not be refundable. You will be advised if this applies to you at the time of booking.

.

Non-attendance (including late cancellation)

If you do not attend your appointment, or cancel later than the deadlines shown above, we reserve the right to make a charge as follows:

1. Ultrasound Facial: you will forfeit the £50 deposit

2. All other appointments (including consultation): £50 will be charged to your credit/debit card

.

Appointment reminders

Please note that, although we normally send text message reminders two days before appointments are due, the successful delivery of these relies on our text provider, your mobile network provider and your phone and cannot therefore be guaranteed.

Therefore, you should not rely on our text messages as the sole reminder of your appointment as we will not be responsible for any appointments missed as a result of non-delivery of the text message reminder, regardless of the reasons for its failure.

I always feel a million dollars when I've been to see you!...
