It is unfortunate but true, more than 85% of women have visible cellulite after the age of 18, regardless of their genes, but it is more prominent in Caucasian women than women of Asian ancestry. Some have it worse than others. Cellulite is a very common condition, which is why the “cellulite” reduction industry makes billions per year. And the problem lies at a deeper level, stored far beneath the surface of the skin, which makes it hard to metabolize and eliminate. The cellulite issue is tied to hormones, and although it is benign in nature, and causes no physical harm, like wrinkles, cellulite haunts women, showing up as ripples and “cottage cheese” on and around the upper thighs, buttocks, and even the arms.
Cellulite is not the same tissue matter as the excess bulges of fat in the belly, thighs, hips, waist and buttocks. The content is different. Fat and cellulite are produced and stored differently, which means they require different methods of treatment for reduction or elimination.
A common question among patients who want to treat and remove unwanted fat with surgical or non-surgical liposuction is, “will liposuction get rid of cellulite too?” The answer is no in most cases.
Excess fat cells can be targeted and removed using various liposuction and laser-assisted lipo methods, including Tumescent, Smartlipo®, Smartlipo MPX and Smartlipo TriPlex. These techniques and devices among others are FDA approved and specifically designed to melt and suction out unwanted fat. In some cases were liposuction is performed on areas of the body where cellulite exists, the cellulite may even become more prominent after the procedure, because cellulite resides beneath different layers between the skin and muscle. However, there are cellulite therapies and treatments. One of the most popular and effective devices to treat cellulite is Cellulaze™ which has shown amazing results in clinical trials and with surgeons who offer Cellulaze for patients.
Dr. Daryl Hoffman, a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in laser-lipolysis procedures and Cellulaze claims that patients can witness amazing results “with just one session, this minimally invasive procedure has been shown to improve skin dimpling for 1 year or more.”
Many surgeons featured on Smartlipo.com also offer Cellulaze as a solution for stubborn cellulite.
Dr. Joel Beck of Bay Area Plastic Surgery is also a board certified plastic surgeon, who has also helped many patients using Cellulaze to help them decrease the appearance of cellulite and get the smooth results they desire.
