The Basics of Cellulite Surgery

Cellulite SurgeryHave you tried all sorts of anti-cellulite creams and treatments with no results? Are you considering cellulite surgery to get rid of that stubborn dimpled fat? If so, there are many things to consider. The first thing you should know is what cellulite is. Cellulite is fat which is stored under fibrous tissue that is connected in a honeycomb shape. When the fat expands around and through this honeycomb shaped connective tissue, it causes the cottage cheese appearance. Cellulite is a problem that primarily affects women.

Surgical procedures for the removal of cellulite are not usually recommended for several reasons. For example, many think that liposuction is a way to remove cellulite. It’s true that liposuction can remove fat from the body, but it does not remove the fat under the septae, also known as cellulite. If anything, liposuction can make cellulite look worse because it often leaves loose skin. Also, liposuction is expensive and painful to recover from. One new alternative to liposuction is laser treatment.

What are the Available Cellulite Surgery Options?

Laser treatments work by breaking down the cellulite and allowing it to be flushed away by the body. It’s still uncertain as to how effective laser treatments for cellulite are. However, it’s known that laser treatments are safer than liposuction when it comes to risk and recovery. If you’re interested in laser treatments for your cellulite, consult with an experienced cosmetic surgeon in your area.

Endermologie is yet another procedure that is advertised as a remedy for cellulite. This procedure involves applying both pressure and suction to the affected areas. It stimulates the various systems in the body which work to break down cellulite and remove it from the body. You will need to have several treatments before results are noticeable, and you will need to continue treatment to maintain results. Endermologie sessions last for approximately 35 minutes, with minimal side effects. The most common side effect of this procedure is bruising.

How to Get Rid of Cellulite Fast

Another alternative to cellulite surgery is simply diet and exercise. By eating smart and exercising regularly, you can help your body get rid of cellulite and keep it off. Aim for three to five sessions of cardio and strength training every week for best results. Some people will never be able to completely eliminate cellulite, but what they can do is diminish its appearance and discourage the formation of new cellulite.
