Do you see small soft dimples on your skin such as on your thighs, upper arms, abdomen and buttocks? These are due to the accumulation of cellulite in these areas. Cellulite gets accumulated more in females than in males but off late males too have been suffering from it.
There are many ways to get rid of cellulite such as exercises in the form of aerobics, dietary restrictions, medicines etc but sometimes the level of cellulite is so high in the body that surgeries become inevitable. Plastic surgery comes handy here. Plastic surgeries can not only help to get rid of these unwanted fats but also help in reshaping the areas. So read on.
Cellulaze is a new form of plastic surgery that targets the cellulite beneath your skin. In this treatment few tiny incisions are made on your skin and a thin beam of laser is passed through it.
The target of the laser light is the fat cells. This is a onetime solution and does not require multiple visits. However it does not provide permanent solutions. Also you could have scars and bruises on your skin after the treatment.
This is also a form of plastic surgery for treating cellulite in your body. The ultrasound waves are passed into the body. It works just like a magnifying glass which concentrates sunlight to a particular point. Here the target points are the fat cells that are injured or broken down with the help of these ultrasound waves.
If you wish you can combine radiofrequency treatment with ultrasound. The effects would be good but it would burn a hole in your pocket. So plan your treatment accordingly.
This is a cellulite reduction treatment in a non surgical form. It helps in reducing cellulite in your body. In this process, the cosmetic surgeon uses a machine to apply gentle pressure to your skin. It stimulates the breakdown of cellulite. It is a 40 minute process.

Cold energy or Cryolipolysis is a form of killing the fat cells by freezing. It is a non-invasive cooling of the adipose tissue to initiate lipolysis or the breaking down of the fat cells. It is different from other treatments as there is no necrotic damaging of the fat cells using heat, high-intensity waves or ultrasound, or chemical injections.
In this process, temperature to the level of frost bite is applied on your skin. This leads the fat cells to freeze before the skin cells because of which the fat cells die fast. These dead cells are then absorbed by the body in due course. The best advantage of this technique is that there is noscarring unlike the above forms of plastic surgeries. Secondly, in this process the other cells are not affected other the fat cells.
There could be many such plastic surgeries to reduce the levels of cellulite in your body but they are often expensive and do not offer permanent solution. Besides there could be side effects too specially the ones where high intensity radio waves or lasers are used. So you should always get the treatment done from a specialized clinic.
Cellulite surgery is very expensive and for that reason alone it’s not a very good decision for most people. The surgery can last from 1 to 5 hours depending on how many areas are being treated. The cost varies by location. It can go from $1,500 to $4,000 per area. If many areas are treated, most doctors will reduce prices, get it now. Right after the surgery the patients are normally bruised and have some swelling. In a few weeks, the swelling goes away. Visible scars are usually not a problem in liposuction. There may be an extremely effective non-surgical cellulite reduction treatment that may be able to provide for much better and safer results at a tiny fraction of the cost.
The main thing to remember about liposuction surgery for cellulite is that you shouldn’t have high expectations that plastic surgery for cellulite will completely change your physical appearance and will give you a perfect makeover. Many people considering liposuction surgery for cellulite have very unrealistic expectations and end up being very disappointed and out a lot of hard-earned money. Liposuction for cellulite is not for anyone who doesn’t want to take a risk.
Liposuction for cellulite is the same as any other surgical procedure so there is a risk of many different types of complications. The dangers of liposuction are more common than you may think. Some dangers of liposuction are serious and life-long. Some dangers of liposuction are also unavoidable. It is a relatively simple surgery, but if a large amount of fat is being removed, it can be life threatening or present serious complications.
One of the possible dangers of liposuction, is during the procedure, the physician is unable to see where the cannula or probe is and can cause puncture wounds to your organs since the surgeon can’t tell where the “suction probe” is. Also there is a very high risk that you will have very baggy skin and even a “honeycomb” appearance after the surgery. This is definitely not very attractive and kind of defeats the purpose of plastic surgery for cellulite in the first place.

Mischa Barton, star of the now-ended Fox drama The OC has been fighting a losing battle with cellulite for some time. While the tabloids and fans obsess over how unsightly her cellulite appears, Make Me Heal offers Mischa some solutions. The 22-year old actress has an otherwise good body, but seems to have a chronic battle with cellulite. As tabloids consistently reported on her cottage cheese thighs, Mischa began insisting that the photos were doctored to make her look bad and add drama. But as more recent photos of her ripples and dimples appear, it seems that Mischa really is the bearer of cellulite.
Many stars suffer from cellulite (See Make Me Heal’s story on Celebrities with Cellulite), including Kim Kardashian, Reese Witherspoon and Sandra Bullock. But many stars that have cellulite also combat it with cellulite treatments to avoid unflattering photos.
VelaSmooth contours the skin where cellulite occurs, helping to reduce the appearance of saddlebags and love handles, which add the appearance of girth, VelaSmooth uses unique ELOS (Electro-Optical Synergy) technology, which maximizes the synergy of conducted RF energy, that is frequently used in medicine and optical energy and would be an excellent tool in Mischa’s fight with cellulite.
Reality stars, Kim Kardashian and her sisters, recently underwent The VelaShapeTM Cellulite Treatment, from the makers of VelaSmooth. It is a non-invasive laser treatment that heats fat cells and then uses a vacuum to smooth out the uneven appearance of the skin. (See Make Me Heal’s story on the Kim Kardashian & Sisters’ Plastic Surgery). Although treatments can be expensive, for a star like Mischa, it definitely seems like a worthy investment.
Mesotherapy is another possible solution for Mischa’s battle against the tiny bulges. Mesotherapy is a popular procedure in Europe. It is aimed at reducing fat and improving the appearance of cellulite through a series of injections with micro needles. It is rumored that Britney Spears had mesotherapy.
If Mischa doesn’t want to go public about her fight against cellulite, she could use the Wellbox Anti-Cellulite Device in the privacy of her own home, as it is rumored Catherine Zeta-Jones and Paris Hilton use the Wellbox. (See Make Me Heal’s story on Catherine Zeta-Jones’ weight loss).
Another self-treatment option would be to use anti-cellulite stockings such as those made by Solidea. Anti-cellulite stocking reduce the “orange-peel” appearance of cellulite by using a special blend of fibers to improve circulation and gives a “micro-massage” with regular movement to eliminate the fat cells and fluid build-up that create the appearance of cellulite. They look like regular pantyhose and can be found in any shape and size to be worn under pants or skirts, so the world need never know about Mischa’s battle.
Despite the pictures and fuss about her lumpy legs, Mischa remains proud of her body, saying, “We work out and we eat healthy and we do what we do, I feel very comfortable. I come from a European family that’s always very comfortable with their bodies.”
While Make Me Heal applauds Mischa’s positive body image, we do think she could at least wear longer skirts, if she doesn’t want to try an anti-cellulite treatment, to avoid the commotion her cottage-cheese thighs cause.

Cellfina: A Real Solution to Cellulite with No Surgery
Said to affect almost 90% of women at some point in their lives, cellulite is the bane of many women’s existence with no truly viable treatment – until now. Cellfina is the first FDA-approved, minimally-invasive procedure that has been clinically proven to eliminate much of cellulite issues.
It works by actually addressing the primary structural cause of your cellulite, and the results are nothing short of miraculous when considering the general lack of an option prior. Dr. Mark Pinsky of Palm Beach Gardens, FL discusses this new technology and how it could foreseeably change the lives of women with cellulite everywhere.
As Dr. Pinsky tells his patients, “you waited until there was a real solution for that pesky cellulite, and now there is.” Cellfina is a unique technology that involves:
Most importantly, Cellfina works by attacking the primary structural cause of cellulite. The condition forms when the fibrous bands that go from beneath the skin down to the muscles tighten and the tissue in between bulges, much like a Chesterfield sofa’s buttons. By separating these bands, the tissue in between is able to distribute more evenly, eliminating the dimpling on the surface of the skin.
The best thing about Cellfina is that most patients will have much of their cellulite dimpling reduced and/or eliminated in one session. If you suffer from Grade 3 cellulite, you may need more than one treatment, but this is not the norm.
As of now, Cellfina patients are going on 4 years with continued improvement. “96% of people are very happy with their outcome and 100% of people have a noticeable change in all their dimples,” says Dr. Pinsky. Most women who suffer from cellulite are extremely self-conscious about their bodies. They tend to shy away from wearing certain clothes or being sans clothes with the lights on. With a major reduction in dimpling, patients no longer have to worry about how they may look in a bathing suit, a silk dress, underwear, shorts, a tight skirt ,or thin skinny jeans.
Cellulite occurs predominately in women. “Men are pretty much spared,” explains Dr. Pinsky. This is because the fibrous connective tissue in men tend to run horizontally, not vertically.
Cellulite often develops during a patient’s teenage years (thank you hormones), but it can show up at anytime. It doesn’t discriminate by race or age although it can seem to get worse as we get older. There are a number of reasons for this.
Most cellulite resides on the back of the legs and the buttocks. This presents a particular clothing challenge in the summer as it makes wearing bathing suits, shorts, and mini-dresses difficult. It is estimated that up to 90% of women suffer from some degree of cellulite. Other things that are thought to cause cellulite are genetics, eating a diet high in fat, salt and too little fiber, lifestyle choices like smoking and inactivity and wearing certain clothes such as underwear with really tight elastic around the buttocks as it may limit blood flow.
It is estimated that women in this country spend about 6 billion dollars a year trying to banish their cellulite with treatments such as cellulite creams, lymphatic massage, ultrasound, RF therapy, magnet therapy, Endermologie, electrical stimulation, and heat therapy to name just a few. While some of these procedures may help, none have been able to truly show significant results in the battle against cellulite. Cellfina is working to change that. “We have a real solution,” says Pinsky. “A cellulite solution.”
