When you stand in front of your mirror, do you feel confident and attractive? Or does your focus tend to gravitate toward small imperfections, such as cellulite? If it is the latter, a plastic surgeon may be able to help via a minimally invasive procedure that can greatly reduce the appearance of those unsightly bumps and lumps. Is this service right for you? This blog post discusses a few reasons why you may want to consider cellulite reduction.
Diet and Exercise Do Not Work
A balanced diet and consistent exercise routine can do wonders for your overall health. However, they can do very little in the fight against cellulite. That is because, contrary to popular belief, cellulite is not fat. Rather, it is dimpling that occurs when normal fat pushes through the fibrous bands beneath your skin. In the vast majority of cases, professional treatment is the only way to significantly reduce cellulite.
The Surgery Is Not Scary
Lots of people get nervous at any mention of surgery. You can rest assured that a standard cellulite reduction procedure is generally very safe and minimally invasive. Most patients recover fairly quickly and without extreme discomfort.
The Procedure Is Effective
The results of cellulite reduction surgery can be amazing, especially if your surgeon follows a special three-step protocol. Here at Wiesman Cosmetic Surgery, we first use a special instrument called a pickle fork to release the fibrous bands that cause cellulite. Next, we use a unique type of ultrasound to further break up the bands and tighten your skin. Further skin tightening is achieved via J-Plasma technology, which uses helium and energized electrons to create a type of cold plasma that can encourage collagen production within the human body.
While it is impossible to completely eliminate cellulite, you can expect to have noticeably smoother skin following your treatment. Depending on how you care for yourself, your results could last for years.
You Deserve to Love Your Body
Cellulite is not a danger to your health, and there is no shame in developing it. After all, it afflicts 80 – 90% of women and around 10% of men. However, if it bothers you, you should not hesitate to take reasonable steps to fight it. You should feel confident in your skin, whether you are wearing a bikini or just want to feel great in front of the mirror.
