Cellulite is simply a term used to describe the bumpy appearance of bulging fat cells beneath the skin. As you age, your skin thins and the presence of cellulite is more visible. Diet and exercise can affect cellulite, although minimally.
Research and innovation in the plastic surgery field has led to new product developments that are safer and easier to use.
A new drug approved by the FDA in 2011 is injected slowly into the tissue and breaks down the collagen that anchors cellulite dimples. This is the first FDA-approved cellulite treatment and although it is not in doctor’s office yet, it will be in the coming months.
On average, 77 percent of patients saw a reduction in cellulite as early as one day after surgery. For more information about cellulite removal, contact the Plastic and Cosmetic Center today for a complimentary consultation.
