More News About Questionable Procedures or Practitioners
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.
