Cellulite has been a huge problem for a very long time! Cellulite—which is characterized by dimpled, lumpy appearance—is mainly caused by three specific factors:
- Uneven globular fat (essentially “fat droplets” under the skin)
- Irregular thickness of overlying skin
- Dimpling caused by tethering of skin attachment to lower tissues
For years, doctors and body sculpting surgeons have tried treating cellulite with creams, but the results were less-than-satisfactory. However, thanks to new technologies, we can now attack the root cause of cellulite directly!
Cellulite Treatments at Gotham Plastic Surgery
At Gotham Plastic Surgery, we offer patients the best and most state-of-the-art cellulite treatment devices that specifically attack all three factors behind cellulite. With Body-Tite, we can help reduce unwanted cellulite on multiple areas of the body, including the arms, legs, buttocks, and more.
A Body-Tite procedure utilizes various treatment methods when dealing with cellulite. First off, radiofrequency lasers will be used to thicken the skin. Liposuction may also be performed, which removes the fat and other elements that cause skin dimpling.
Aside from in-office procedure, cellulite can also be reduced via diet and exercise (to a minimal degree). An increase in physical activities and a change in diet may lessen the amount of globular, but it will not help with irregular skin thickness nor with skin dimpling.
After years of expensive creams that do not work, patients finally have an option to improve cellulite on tough and frustrating areas of the body. Contact the body sculpting experts at Gotham Plastic Surgery to learn more cellulite treatments today!
