Improving cellulite with plastic surgery
How plastic surgeons are using latest procedures?
article, we will
individually look at what plastic surgery options
are available to deal with cellulite:
Cellulite is a problem that we all would like to get rid of but at this time
there is no ideal treatment for eliminating
cellulite. Although some treatments may provide temporary
improvement in the appearance of cellulite, so far there is no proven, permanent
“cure” for cellulite. By following simple skincare and diet/exercise routine,
though, a woman can somewhat "manage" her cellulite but increasingly women are
turning to plastic surgeons for body contouring options.
Dr. Sam Speron,
body contouring expert, says, “Cellulite is caused by bands of fibrous tissue that connect the muscle to the skin. If these bands are tight and the fat between the muscle and the skin is compressed,
there will be dimpling. Almost all women and even some men have
cellulite. Cellulite stems from genetic predisposition, hormonal changes and weight gain.
Patients need to understand that cellulite can be improved, but not removed!"
It does not reduce cellulite by itself. Some surgeons, however, have reported
performing a technique of cellulite lysing (breaking up) using a liposuction cannula (hollow tube
powered by gas or electricity) that features a smooth, round-tipped tunneling rod inserted in a
hollow casing with a sharp, V-pronged cutting edge. The tunneling rod assures passage under the
skin to the area to be broken up, while the curette fork (loop shaped surgical instrument)
extends at the tip to sever only the dimple-causing connective tissue system. The area that is
released can then be injected with fat to fill the space. For vast majority of women, this
technique does improve the appearance of cellulite.

- Fat injections:
Autologous fat that is obtained from donor sites in the abdomen and flank areas
may fill in depressions. Again, this is more successful if a release is performed at the same
time. However, the results of
fat injections may not be permanent. But since no foreign material
is injected, the results look more natural.
- Lower body lift:
This procedure evolved from what used to be called
Lift.” The technique was designed to replace the
lift, a procedure that works well for some
patients but may produce scars that are visible when
wearing a bathing suit. The lower body lift
requires an incision around the entire circumference of the abdominal and buttock area, so that
excess skin can be removed and the entire flank, thigh and buttocks areas can be lifted. The
incision can usually be placed discreetly within standard or high-cut bikini lines. The result of
the procedure is tightening of the back, flank and abdominal tissues, and reduction in the
appearance of cellulite in the lifted areas. The
lower body lift is a major surgical procedure
that requires a lengthy recovery and leaves an extensive, though well-positioned, scar. For this
reason, it requires specially careful patient selection and, as with all cosmetic surgery, the
patient's full informed consent. You must think
hard about this procedure after doing all your
research and understanding the
This mechanical roller massage therapy has been proposed as a treatment for
cellulite and as complement to liposuction. Treatments may produce temporary improvement in the
appearance of cellulite, but long-term results of this non-invasive therapy are yet to be
established, either clinically or scientifically.
Endermologie in and of itself has not been found to be beneficial for producing long -term and lasting clinical
results but Bruce Shack of Vanderbilt University School of Medicine
analyzed the effect of endermologie and
concluded that it break ups cellulite with one
caveat. The quality of results varies by
the professional who does it. This means that when you are going to spend over a thousand dollars on the procedure you might want to pick the right person (it can be doctors,
therapists) to do it.
In this procedure, small amounts of homeopathic medicine are injected immediately
beneath the surface of the skin to break down the cellulite and to improve circulation and
lymphatic and venous drainage. Like Endermologie, there are no scientific studies to back up
mesotherapy improves the appearance of
cellulite. Mesotherapy is also not yet
approved by the FDA.
