Frequently Asked Questions about Fat-Away Injection

Do I need to take sick leave or vacation time?

Please note that elective cosmetic treatments do not entitle you to sick leave. From a medical standpoint it is usually not necessary to take vacation time.

What must I do after the procedure?

The protective dressing can be removed after a few hours. Redness, bruises, and swelling are completely natural. We recommend that you avoid saunas, steam baths, swimming, “sweat-generating” activities, and solariums until the puncture sites have healed.

How much less will I weigh after a treatment?

The purpose of fat-away injection is not to lose weight, but to enable the “harmonization” of problem zones. However, the volume of the treated regions is normally reduced. The result varies individually, but based on experience the circumferential difference before/after treatment may be 2 to 4 centimeters relative to the initial situation.

How many treatments are necessary?

The number of treatments depends on the nature and number of the problem areas and the extent of the desired change. On average two treatments at least two weeks apart are necessary.

How much does a treatment cost?

Several factors determine the fee, notably the location and number of the regions to be treated. A medical examination and a precise analysis of your requests are thus essential. The costs of regular consultation with DDr. Heinrich that includes preliminary examination are € 100.00. A treatment plan is drawn up and the costs for it are established during the preliminary examination.

Where can fat-away injection be used?

Generally injection lipolysis can be used on any part of the body with undesirable fat deposits. A medical examination during the first consultation in the clinic is obviously essential before treatment can be done.

How does fat-away injection really work?

Fat-away injection enables the elimination of smaller fat deposits/cellulite without surgery. A special substance is injected into the fat pads to induce the fat cells to “melt”. The destroyed fat cells are then resolved into the lymphatic system of the body and gotten rid of by natural means. The result is generally noticeable about two weeks later.
