Cellulaze: Cosmetic Surgery for Treating Cellulite

March 20 2013

Warmer weather is approaching fast. The days of summer barbeques, parties, and trips to the beach are just around the corner. For many people warm weather means fun, sun, and relaxation, but for those women who suffer from unsightly cellulite, warm weather means the dreaded bathing suit season. Finding a suit that can minimize or hide unattractive cellulite can be a stressful time that leaves many women feeling unattractive and self-conscious about their bodies.

Fortunately, there is a new development in the world of plastic surgery called Cellulaze.

Cellulite is a problem for many women and despite the best diet and exercise routines it simply will not go away. Despite common beliefs, cellulite has nothing to do with weight or body fat. In fact, cellulite is created by bands of tissue that are anchoring the skin and creating that uneven, cottage cheese look that cellulite is known for. Genetics is the biggest factor that contributes to cellulite.

Cellulaze is a new treatment that specifically targets cellulite areas. Much like a liposuction procedure, Cellulaze is performed by making a small incision in the skin for a cannula to be inserted. Once under the skin, the cannula is used to break the bands of tissue and treat the skin beneath. Fat can also be removed if necessary. The result is skin that lies smooth and the end to cellulite forever.

Results are not immediate with Cellulaze. Patients may experience swelling or bruising, much like a liposuction procedure, but as these begin to fade, the results will begin to shine through.

At The Beauty of Knowledge Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, Drs. Nunn and Mackay understand that cellulite is a concern for many women and they are always in tune with any of the latest developments in cosmetic treatments. That being said, Cellulaze may be offered in the near future, but ask the board certified plastic surgeons at The Beauty of Knowledge about other cellulite treatment options available today to find out the best approach for you.

Cellulite is something you’re born with but that doesn’t mean you have to live with it forever. You can make 2013 the year you enjoy the beach like everyone else, but it all starts with a consultation. Schedule yours today!
