Consumer Safety Alert on Fat Dissolving Injections
Date:10/8/2007

is proven. This is not a beauty treatment. This is a medical treatment that involves hundreds of injections into the body of a compounded mixture of drugs. This mixture is not FDA approved nor has it been formally tested for predictable results or safety. That alone should steer consumers away from the marketing hype."

"There are many safe, and very effective cosmetic injectable treatments available to consumers with aging concerns, but fat melting or dissolving injections are presently not among them," added Dr. Few. "At present liposuction is the only approved, safe and proven method of reducing localized fat."

The Coalition offers consumers these very simple questions to ask before considering any cosmetic injectable procedure:

-- Doctor: Is the procedure recommended by a qualified doctor who

regularly treats similar conditions, in an appropriately licensed

and equipped medical facility?

-- Brand: Is the injectable recommended approved by the U.S. FDA for

cosmetic indications and is it appropriately labeled and packaged

to reflect it authenticity and approval?

-- Safety: Has the proper process been followed? Has the physician

evaluated conditions, recommended treatment, offered alternatives

and clearly defined the potential outcomes including any

complications?
