Is Cellulite Surgery An Option For You?

Jun 13, 2008
Cellulite is the dreaded "cottage cheese" look that many women see at some point in their lives. Cellulite occurs more often in women as they age and their body tone tends to get more relaxed. It is a horrific sight and a frustrating feeling knowing that your body has cellulite.

What is even more frustrating is that cellulite can be difficult to get rid of. Many cellulite problems can be taken care of or drastically reduced just by following a healthy diet and exercising. However some cellulite cases are so bad that they require surgery.

Different Cellulite Surgeries

The surgeries for cellulite are invasive methods of eliminating the problem of cellulite. Some of these surgeries are less invasive than others and causes less pain for the patient.

Liposuction is the most commonly performed type of cellulite surgery. It is basically a body toning method for younger adults and should not be used for weight loss on older patients. This method involves making incisions on the cellulite areas and sucking out the fat deposits through a tube.

Another cellulite surgery is a lower body lift. This treatment is similar to a face lift only it is performed on the lower half of the body. This is a highly invasive surgery lifts a large area of skin on the lower body and tightens the lower body skin to eliminate cellulite.

Mesotherapy is a relatively non-invasive form of cellulite surgery except for its injections into the cellulite areas. A custom made solution of natural substances is injected into these areas to re-hydrate and dissolve the cellulite.

Laser lipolisis is another minimally invasive cellulite surgery that involves making small incisions on certain body areas and using a fiber optic laser to eliminate the body fat.

You Need To Be Clear On One Thing Before You Go Under The Knife

You should try to eliminate your cellulite problem naturally first by eating right and exercising. Even if you opt for surgery, in the months and years following your surgery you are going to have to exercise and follow a healthy diet or the cellulite will return. You also need to understand the risks of surgery.

All of these surgeries range in price range depending on what location of the country that you have the surgery and who performs your surgery. There are some clinics that only do liposuction that are very reasonably priced compared to the renowned surgeon in Beverly Hills who performs cellulite surgery.

So it is wise to research information on the internet and try to get a referral for your surgery. Referrals are usually the best form of medical reference.

The Risks

The risks involved in cellulite surgery depend on the cellulite condition of the patient. The most common side effect of cellulite surgery is swelling and bruising.

Some people only experience minimal swelling and bruising, whereas others may be more sensitive to bruising and the effects are more severe. But a good cellulite surgery performed by a good cellulite specialist normally results in an effective cellulite reduction. Of course there are always some accidents during any medical procedure that can lead to infections and organ punctures.
