Fat-Melting Injections: Dangerous, Unproven but Widely Available

LipoDissolve is the brand name for an injectable drug that is supposed to melt fat.

Patients who've had these injections have told the Food and Drug Administration that they've developed painful knots under their skin, scarring, deformities and other bad outcomes.

What's worse, the drugs used -- chemicals called phosphatidylcholine (PC) and deoxycholate (DC) -- have never been proven to be effective for these promoted purposes.
