FDA Cracks Down on Lipodissolve Claims, Warns Consumers

FDA warnings were issued to several med-spas last week (including one here in Indiana) regarding claims made about the safety and effectiveness of lipodissolve.

With an injection of certain chemicals (phosphatidylcholine, deoxycholate, and others) lipodissolve is said to remove areas of persistent fat.  The procedure, which is also known as injection lipolysis, lacks scientific evidence supporting its use as a fat removal treatment.

The medispas involved were apparently claiming that Lipodissolve was “superior to other fat removal procedures, including liposuction” and making misleading claims about the safety record and effectiveness of lipodissolve.

Given the lack of supporting evidence for lipodissolve and the side effects reported by consumers, officials in the FDA felt it was necessary to crack down on these misleading claims and warn consumers about them.  The medical spas are being instructed to “correct these violations and prevent similar violations in the future.”
