Lasers: The Latest and Greatest in Cellulite Treatment

Posted by on Feb 13, 2013 in Non-surgical | Comments Off

Not long ago, the idea of liposuction in Los Angeles was the straightforward removal of excess fat by suctioning it away from problem areas through a long, narrow tube called a canulla. However, even after liposuction, patients are still often unsatisfied with their results because of unsightly cellulite.

To put it simply, cellulite is a condition where skin areas appear bumpy and uneven because of underlying fat deposits. Catherine Saint Louis of the New York Times says calls cellulite “a Sisyphean struggle because it is unsightly and difficult to get rid of. Diet, puberty, and genetics are all factors that affect cellulite.

Although weight loss, diet, exercise, and liposuction all seem to have in impact on decreasing cellulite, none of those tactics attack the cellulite at the root. That is where lasers comes into play. Laser assisted liposuction aims to resolve three typical problems in cellulite: uneven fat, thin skin, and connective tissue preventing fat from flexing. Doctors use a combination of laser treatment, and surgical skill to address these problems.

Lasers are a key to addressing the root problems of cellulite because they melt fat and breaking down the connective tissue to help make the skin smoother. Doctors can then suction away excess fat. A number of women who have undergone this kind of treatment report lasting effects.

Laser liposuction isn’t intended to replace conventional liposuction. Instead it is intended to compliment liposuction since it adds the ability to tackle cellulite while also removing excess, stubborn fat deposits. Trust trained plastic surgeons to perform this procedure.

Whether you are seeking liposuction, cellulite treatment or eyelid surgery in Los Angeles, trust a trained and board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Jeffrey D. Hoefflin to perform any cosmetic procedures.
