Plastic surgery: Cellulite is a difficult problem to correct and has many ineffective gimmicks being advertised. There are some surgical and non-surgical techniques available. I recommend visiting a board certified plastic surgeon. Visit plasticsurgery.Org and use the find a surgeon tab.

Cellulaze: Cellulite is an annoying problem to millions of women. It is caused by an uneven superficial fat layer as well as tiny ligaments that hold the skin down. The only effective and fda approved treatment is called cellulaze by cynosure. It is a one time minimally invasive procedure that permanently removes cellulite. To find a provider in your area go to www.Cynosure.Com.

Cellulite treatment: The best way to get rid of fat is with liposculpture. My method of choice is smart lipo. The best way to improve cellulite is with cellulaze. There is no other method even close to the efficacy of this procedure.

Cellulite: Cellulite is a difficult issue to improve. It effects most everyone. There are some procedures that can provide some improvement. You would need to be evaluated but there are surgical and some non surgical options for improvement. I have had success with Exilis, Liposuction, and direct release of the dimpling causing bands. Hope that helps. Topical creams generally don't help.

Cellulite: There is not a great option for removing cellulite. There are treatments that help Exilis, Liposuction, etc. Cellulite is caused by fibrous bands connecting skin to deeper tissues. Disrupting those bands helps, as does decreasing the fatty tissues in the area removing some of the tension on the bands. I've had some success with Exilis, Liposuction, and direct release of the offending bands.

No cure yet: There are many creams and procedures that claim to get rid of cellulite but so far there is no cure for this very common problem. Endermologie helps but effects are very short-lasting. Procedures such as velasmooth and velashape, thermage, and titan can help improve cellulite but not get rid of it entirely. Their effects are much longer lasting and more effective than endermologie.
