Cellulite is a common skin skin condition affecting millions of Australians. Even though its not an illness or a medical condition as such, it has the potential to cause significant emotional stress and can affect self esteem and confidence of individuals suffering from it.
What is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the appearance of dimples on the skin due to the presence of small fibrous connective tissue bands that attach the underside of the skin to the deeper tissue facia.
In some people with genetic predisposition, these fibrous bands are very strong and pull the skin downwards more noticeably, creating the superficial deformity of dimpling skin. Even skinny people are known to have cellulite.
How can we fix cellulite?
Once we understand what causes cellulite, its easier to see that in most people no amount of exercise or weight reduction will get rid of cellulite. Unfortunately, there are no miracle creams or lymphatic draining techniques to fix cellulite either. If anyone promises you miraculous results, then they are simply misleading you and interested only in your cash.
Surgical disruption of fibrous bands using liposuction cannulas (with or without laser) and surgical cutting wires are the only known methods of breaking fibrous bands permanently. Due to the nature and extent of cellulite in most patients, it can become a very challenging task to surgically remove all the fibrous bands in any given area. The cost, potential risk and complications and time involved to do the job satisfactorily varies from person to person. Some of the bands can reattach after surgical disruption as well and have to be released again. This option works well for people with a few large dimples in the outer legs and buttocks area. Sometimes we have to fill the dimples with micro fat injections at the same time for optimum results.
