SILVER SPRING, Md., April 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- It's a tempting premise: Get a series of drug injections and see pockets

of fat on your body go away for good.

But the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is alerting consumers about false and misleading claims being made about products used in

lipodissolve, and about other misbranding of these products.

Recipients of lipodissolve get a series of drug injections intended to dissolve and permanently remove small pockets of fat from various parts of the body. The process is also known as injection lipolysis, lipozap, lipotherapy, and mesotherapy.
