Research Board

The NETWORK Lipolysis Research Board

September 12, 2005

How do the research groups work and who can participate in them?
Any member can join a research group, regardless of the current status of his/her knowledge. Participation in research groups is expressly welcomed by NETWORK Lipolysis.

How is the work of the research groups coordinated?
For each research group, we have succeeded in winning at least one speaker to coordinate communication of the work of his/her group.

The work processes in the research groups are clearly structured. To this end, the NETWORK has devised a 3-step structure designed to facilitate working and ensure uniform quality of the work results.

Step 1: Each member describes in brief what experience and knowledge he/she already has in relation to the topic of the work group. This information is collated by the speakers.

Step 2: On the basis of this collective experience - whether positive or negative - the work group then jointly develops a concept for dealing with the topic and discusses and coordinates this with the Scientific Advisory Board.

Step 3: The concept is then implemented by the members of the group.

And here the Research Groups:

Research Group 1

Definition of the optimum regions of the body for use of lipolysis therapy.

This group will compare lipolysis with alternative therapies, e.g. liposuction, and identify what regions and under what conditions and for what patient needs injection lipolysis presents the optimum treatment option.

Research Group 2

Possibilities of combining liposuction and lipolysis

This group is concerned with ways in which a combination of liposuction and lipolysis can optimise the results of body contouring for the patients and what aspects need to be particularly considered. The group is working particularly on the detailed development of appropriate corrective injections following liposuction. A distinction is made between the uses of lipolysis for pre-treatment and follow-up treatment..

Research Group 3

Special aspects of facial treatment

The special aspects of facial treatment lie in defining the optimum treatment regions, the sometimes long-lasting duration of the side effects, and the possibilities of combination with other facial treatments, e.g. filler injections, botox, mesotherapy. And what special anatomical know-how should doctors have in order to carry out optimum facial therapy.

Research Group 4

Cellulite therapy, with special reference to mesotherapy methods

This group investigates ways in which the already very good results with cellulite treatment can be further improved through mesotherapy and other combination therapies.


Speaker: Dr. Patrick Treacy

Research Group 5

Lipodissolve injections and physicotherapy

The astounding results of Dr. van der Lugt in the field of combination ultrasono-lipolysis and injection lipolysis have caused us to form a work group to further investigate the combination of lipolysis and ultrasonolipolysis.


Speaker: Drs. Claudia van der Lugt

MD, cosmetic and preventive medicine

Research Group 6

Reduction of pain and other side-effects

The group investigates in what treatment regions pain reduction promises to be successful and what form it should take. The group also investigates what measures should be provided after treatment (psychological and physical measures - post-therapy support, cooling, compression garments, etc.)


Speaker: Dr. Lucy Glancey

Research Group 7

Treatment of the side-effects of medication in HIV patients

The possibilities of treating the side-effects of HIV therapy (buffalo hump) is an important aspect of injection lipolysis. The frequently disfiguring and hence stigmatising side-effects caused by changes in the fat metabolism can currently only be treated surgically. Injection lipolysis appears to offer a meaningful alternative in this field. This group is also concerned with lipoma treatment in non-HIV patients.

Research Group 8

Treatment errors and emergency treatment

This group is concerned with treatment errors and providing information on their avoidance. Particular weight is given to the comprehensive documentation of treatment errors caused by untrained doctors or patient self-therapy. The group also informs all members through further training courses about how to treat the very rare occurrences of anaphylactic shock triggered by an allergic reaction.
