All About Liposuction Cellulite Reduction and Removal
Women and men of all ages and all sizes have battled cellulite. They have spent thousands of dollars on topical treatments, exercised, dieted, and still have the unsightly appearance of cellulite.
The quest to rid themselves of their “cottage cheese” thighs have led many to consider plastic surgery and liposuction. Liposuction cellulite reduction can work in some cases, but it is not a fix all as many people have begun to think in recent years.
Liposuction cellulite removal doesn’t always work
Unfortunately, as they soon discover, liposuction does not usually get rid of all cellulite on the body. In certain cases, liposuction can cause the appearance of cellulite to worsen (and even worse, may leave a liposuction scar in that particular area).
Cellulite is basically defined as small deposits of fat that are attached to the skin by connective tissue. When cellulite liposuction is performed, and a layer of fat is “vacuumed” out, skin becomes looser and the cellulite may appear to worsen.
Liposuction was designed to contour specific areas and remove pockets of deep fat from areas such as thighs, hips, and abdomens. Because cellulite is attached to the skin and sits between the skin and muscle, liposuction will not work.
Understanding why cellulite develops in the first place
Cellulite is believed to be caused by several factors, including diet, exercise, and heredity. There is a disagreement among professionals as to whether too much water or to little water can cause cellulite. Some professionals believe that cellulite is caused by connective tissue disorder.
Whether cellulite is caused by any of these factors, or by a combination of all of them, the fact remains that women suffering from cellulite consider it unattractive and would like it removed.
Endermologie treatments for cellulite may be effective
Endermologie is one of the newest treatments available on the market. Endermologie employs the use of a machine which uses a vacuum to lift soft tissue and skin, while rollers stretch and loosen the bands of connective tissue which is thought to release the fat trapped within the connective tissue.
Women who use this treatment often use it in conjunction with liposuction. Liposuction is used to reach deep fat deposits on the thighs, and then after the surgical site has healed, Endermologie is used to reduce the appearance of cellulite. There are other liposuction alternative treatments to reduce cellulite in addition to Endermologie that you may want to consider as well.
Finding a skilled plastic surgeon for liposuction of cellulite
Superficial liposuction is a relatively cheap liposuction procedure (compared to most others) that can reduce the appearance of cellulite. Women should be warned that this is a difficult procedure that if not done by a skilled plastic surgeon can result in severe damage to the skin.
This procedure uses smaller cannulae than a typical liposuction machine and can reach areas under the skin where cellulite is lodged (this is extremely common in cases of inner thigh liposuction).
