People wanting to reduce fat and contour their body typically turn to liposuction. It is commonly used to slim areas such as the abdomen, thighs, arms, and buttocks. But when it comes to other body issues such as cellulite, will liposuction help.

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a cosmetic condition that gives the skin a dimpled, lumpy appearance. Many women struggle with cellulite on the buttocks and thighs, but it can also affect other areas of the body. Cellulite dimples are caused by connective tissue in the fat layer below the surface of the skin that pull down on the skin.

Will Liposuction remove cellulite?

Liposuction is designed to get rid of pockets of unwanted fat, but it does not remove cellulite. Reducing fat pockets can make cellulite dimples less visible, so patients often think that it can also get rid of cellulite, but that is not the case. Cellulite is best treated with a procedure like Cellfina, which is specially designed for the purpose (learn more).

Cellfina for cellulite

Cellfina is a minimally invasive treatment that is FDA approved for treating cellulite dimples on the thighs, and buttocks. The Cellfina device is fitted with small needles that are used to release the bands that cause cellulite dimples. When the connective bands are released, the skin snaps back into shape, and eventually becomes smoother.

During clinical trials carried out with Cellfina for FDA, participants reported a high level of satisfaction with the treatment, and improvements lasted for up to 2 years.

Cellfina takes approximately 45 minutes to complete, and is done under local anesthesia.
