Persistence and hypertrophy of fat pads particularly of the face and neck region disturb beauty proportions, thus demand treatments. Phosphatidylcholine and deoxycholic acid are the most commonly used solutions for injection lipolysis. As we stand today, sodium deoxycholate preparation is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the same. This article describes the correct use of solution to achieve fat reduction and ensure safety. Complete details of patient selection, assessment, dosing, and injection techniques are described in this article. A brief note on posttreatment care and complications is also provided.
