Abstract The practice of injecting phosphatidylcholine/sodium deoxycholate compounds into subcutaneous fat is growing rapidly. As with any new procedure, a standard of practice should be developed so that practitioners maintain patient safety as the primary goal. Efficacy and predictability of outcome are another priority. As injection lipolysis, also known as "lipodissolve," becomes more accepted, many standards are being set, such as indications, contraindications, acceptable postinjection sequelae, best regions to treat, regions to avoid, and expected outcomes. This article establishes a basis of practice for the practitioner interested in adding this procedure to his or her repertoire.
