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.
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.

The latest generation VelaShape III™ is a non-invasive body shaping treatment used to reduce cellulite, as well as slim the area around the stomach, hips, and thighs. The machine combines four different technologies:
Massage Rollers – to improve skin texture and reduce overall volume of the treated area
Being a non-surgical treatment, the results achieved by Velashape III™ are not permanent. They last for up to 8 – 12 months and repeat treatments are needed every 6 to 8 months to maintain the smooth look.
Its just like having dermal fillers or Anti-wrinkle injections done on regular intervals to maintain the optimum results.
The treatment is not painful at all. Some heat and pulling sensation is felt in the area being treated. Most patients describe it more like a “heated massage’ sensation.
