Cellulite is a type of subcutaneous fat that causes a dimpled or lumpy look wherever it occurs. Common in women of all ages, cellulite is not related to weight gain or having children. In fact, even the slimmest of women who have never been pregnant often develop cellulite as they age.
Cellulite is resistant to most treatments, including liposuction. There are some types of liposuction that may improve the appearance of areas impacted by cellulite, but by and large, cellulite will remain untouched by liposuction procedures. If you are concerned about the appearance of cellulite, some nonsurgical options may be useful in its treatment. Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Martin O’Toole will discuss these with you during your initial consultation to help you determine if any are suitable for your needs.
Liposuction will not get rid of cellulite, but it will permanently eliminate stubborn fat deposits from your body. With liposuction, Dr. O’Toole can sculpt, tone, and define nearly any area of the body to produce a look that is highly attractive and desirable. If you act now, there is even time left to undergo liposuction and be fully recovered in time for beach season.
