Abstract

LipoDissolve, also known as injection lipolysis, is a procedure marketed as a means to rid the body of unwanted pockets of fat. Despite warnings by the Food and Drug Administration that the products used in this procedure have not been shown to be safe or effective and are not approved for this use, LipoDissolve continues to be used by beauty spas across the United States. The authors report a case of a 63-year-old woman who developed acute liver injury, acute renal failure necessitating hemodialysis, and pancreatitis soon after undergoing her first LipoDissolve therapy at a home spa.
