Abstract Lipodissolve, to reduce superficial deposits of fat, has gained popularity in recent years. A simple solution of phosphatidylcholine in deoxycholate evolved around and has been used by two collaborating physicians in Minnesota.

Localized injections of phosphatidylcholine PC with deoxycholate DC to reduce superficial deposits of fat have gained popularity in the United States since the turn of the century.
