Can Liposuction Get Rid of Cellulite?
Liposuction continues to be one of the most popular ways to reduce stubborn fat deposits in nearly any area of the body. Though liposuction can improve your appearance and self-confidence, it may not always address the dimpled, uneven texture of cellulite.
Triple board-certified cosmetic surgeons Dr. Erik Nuveen and Dr. Courtney Caplin can explain what's possible with liposuction during a consultation in Oklahoma City, OK. Call Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates to book an appointment today – we look forward to working with you.
What causes small fat deposits?
Factors like age, genetics, hormones, and pregnancy all contribute to the accumulation of fat deposits in the abdomen, buttocks, thighs, arms, face, and neck. Unfortunately, conventional methods like diet and exercise may not be enough to manage these areas. People get embarrassed and frustrated because their hard work isn't producing the results they want. Now, body contouring procedures like liposuction may be the solution you're looking for.
How does liposuction treatment work?
Liposuction is a minimally invasive procedure that involves small incisions in the treatment area. Dr. Nuveen or Dr. Caplin then insert a thin tube called a cannula to break up and suction away the fat. Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates offers a range of techniques like laser-assisted liposuction, ultrasound-assisted liposuction, and tumescent (“Super-Wet”) liposuction based on your anatomy and individual aesthetic goals.
Benefits of liposuction treatment include:
- Improved body contours and symmetry
- Long-lasting results
- Quick recovery time compared to more extensive procedures
Can liposuction get rid of cellulite?
Cellulite occurs when fibrous bands beneath the skin pull down on the fatty tissue, creating a dimpled appearance. Liposuction treatment does not necessarily correct this issue, but it can make your skin look smoother and more even by reducing the amount of underlying fat. Body contouring candidates must have realistic expectations and understand that any particular liposuction technique may not help with the appearance of cellulite.
A consultation with one of our cosmetic surgeons is one of the best ways to determine if liposuction can achieve your aesthetic goals. Dr. Nuveen and Dr. Caplin are happy to review your medical history and examine the treatment areas to provide personalized options in Oklahoma City, OK. We may even recommend alternative treatments as needed.
What results can you expect with liposuction?
Patients can expect to see smoother contours, improved definition, and better proportions after undergoing liposuction with our team. Clothing also tends to fit better since fat pockets prevent garments from looking the way they should. Our patients at Cosmetic Surgery Affiliates often report an increase in self-esteem and body confidence.
Patients should know that the best outcomes require a proper diet and consistent exercise regimen. This prevents the remaining fat cells from growing. We work with each patient individually, so they have the tools and understanding needed to help maintain their results.
