More News About Questionable Procedures or Practitioners By Dr. Sutton Graham on April 08, 2010

Now both National Public Radio (NPR) and the web company WebMD are alerting the public to concerns about a group of procedures called "injection lipolysis." Other names used in marketing are; lipodissolve, lipozap, mesotherapy, lipotherapy or fat melting. They use a variety of chemicals, but these lack FDA approval for that usage. Quality scientific studies have not been done to prove safety and effectiveness. Proponents have claimed liposuction-like results without surgery.

The FDA contacted several US companies promoting these treatments and warned them to cease. It also notified a Brazilian company about their web marketing.
