Different treatment (including medical and surgical) are proposed for this problem. In this paper, we evaluate therapeutic effect of yobelean cream(an a2 antagonist) in the treatment of the disease.

Thickness of subcutaneous fat tissues was assessed by sonography and measuring circumference of thing in two fix point of thing before and after the treatment and also by patient s subjective evaluation.

Results: Mean upper thing circumference lowered 0.5±0.62 Cm (p=0.002) and lower part up to 0.125±0.27 Cm (p=0.056). In sonographic evaluation, subcutaneous fat tissue lowered up to 3.6±3.9 mm (p=0.001) in upper part and 1.3±1.4 mm (p=0.0001) in lower part. This profile wasn t significant in left side.
