Cellulite Removal is for women and men who suffer from dimpled or an orange-peal resemblance in their inner, outer and upper thighs, hips, and buttocks. These areas can benefit from the effective way of removing cellulite by surgical means. There are other alternatives; however none of them have been proven to be effective. Surgical methods offer more successful ways to remove cellulite.
Good candidates for cellulite removal are healthy non-smoking individuals, who are no more than 20 pounds overweight as this procedure does not offer a solution to weight loss. Cellulite often times has nothing to do with being overweight. In most cases it is hereditary. The minimum age requirement for this surgical operation is 18.
The first step is a detailed consultation with your surgeon, who will determine the best method to achieve your desired end results. Cellulite may be removed surgically by using liposuction or laser lipolysis to break up and remove the fat deposits. The deposits have caused a build-up and latency in certain regions of the body, resulting in a dimpled-appearance.
A lower body lift is also a possible option for cellulite removal, in which the skin around the affected area is lifted and the muscles are tightened, as in a face lift procedure. Incisions are closed with dissolvable or removable stitches, in which the patient may be required to return to the hospital to have the stitches removed. This procedure is outpatient.
Average Duration of Cellulite Removal: 2-4 hours
