Referred to as Mesotherapy (general term) or Lipodissolve

Mesotherapy injections are able to dissolve localized fat and reduce the appearance of cellulite through a series of painless injections with no downtime. There are certain “problem areas” that are resistant to diet and exercise and now are able to offer you a non-surgical option in the office to treat these areas such as abdomen, hips, thighs, knees, back, arms, neck, and facial areas without a recovery period. Lipolysis is a more reliable procedure for improvement in cellulite.

What is Mesotherapy?

Mesotherapy injections contain a natural substance, phosphatidylcholine, PCC found from soya beans and this same substance is also produced naturally by the body. This natural substance along with vitamin complexes is injected with tiny needles into the fatty layer to promote the body to dissolve the fat cells and promote skin contraction.

Anticipated Results:

Typically, results are seen at two weeks following the injection and the treatments are recommended every 4-6 weeks. Larger areas on the body require 2-4 treatments for optimal results. These injections take less than 30 minutes to perform. Moderate swelling and bruising are noted for 3-5 days, but will not limit normal activities.


This technique has been proven safe and effective in thousands of patients. Dr. Short has received her certification following thorough training sessions and she has had the lipolysis treatment herself. Physicians should complete a training course before injecting patients and many, like Dr. Short, have joined the Network-Globalhealth. This organization is designed to allow physicians around the world to share ideas and results as well as promote ongoing research to discover additional uses for this exciting technique. These advances may even include treatment of stretch marks.

Mesotherapy is NOT:

  • It is not a weight reduction procedure
  • It is not a replacement for liposuction
  • It is not a substitute for weight loss
  • It is not as effective for VERY large areas

Mesotherapy is a great alternative for localized problems area of fat accumulation and cellulite with no surgery and no downtime.

Note: It is important to address any concerns with Dr. Short at the time of your consultation. There is some risk, as with any surgical procedure. Minor complications that do not affect the final outcome occur occasionally. Major complications are unusual. Dr. Short can explain the procedure and potential complications to you in detail, and she can assist you in determining if  mesotherapy is right for you.

I would never even consider going any place else. *

I came to Dr. Short for a Breast Augmentation and tummy tuck about 3 1/2 years ago. I was a mother of 5 children and had spent the past 15 years giving birth and taking care of kids. Even before the kids though, I struggled with a poochy tummy. I decided for my 40th birthday that I was finally going to do something about it. I searched the internet extensively and finally found Dr. Short. The results she was showing on her website were exactly what I was looking for. I flew out from Washington State for my consultation and immediately liked her and her entire staff. They put me at ease and answered all my questions.

I was thrilled with the results of the surgery. I went immediately from a size 12 to a size 4. I couldn’t believe it. The surgery got me so motivated that I continued to diet and exercise and have now dropped another 13 pounds and now wear a size 0. In addition to the fantastic results, Dr. Short and her staff made me feel like a girlfriend. I felt that they truly understood what my needs were, not just clinically, but from a woman’s perspective. I can’t recommend Dr. Short and her office enough for any cosmetic procedure. Thank you so much. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. *

Allissa S

I went to Dr. Short 2 years ago with an A cup breast size. She gave me a low C cup, and i get compliments on my breasts daily. They are very natural looking and feeling. A lot of people do not even believe me when I tell them I have had breast augmentation. Shes the best and I’m very very pleased with the outcome of the surgery. *

Deborah M

I used Dr.Short for a breast enlargement. I was more then impressed with the results. They did a great job and I recommend her all the time to people who ask for a Dr. I went in with a lot of questions and attended a seminar that helped me feel at ease. The surgery was not as bad as everyone makes it out to be. I was back to normal in no time. The scars left are not even visible unless you look really hard. I highly recommend Dr.Short. They made me feel comfortable by having proper follow up appointments to make sure that everything was ok with surgery. I have nothing bad to say about my whole experience. It is going on three years now and I have had no complications at all. Dr. Short does a great job of giving you a natural look and making sure she keeps the look proportional to your body type. She really does a great job. *
