Anyone who has ever slimmed down knows that weight loss can’t always correct the appearance of cellulite. And, although liposuction often provides some improvement, the best way to reduce dimpling of the thighs or buttocks is with a cellulite removal treatment in Los Angeles. Marina Plastic Surgery offers an array of cellulite-reducing methods, including the new, highly anticipated Cellfina™. This ground-breaking procedure actually re-forms the skin for substantial improvements that last long after treatment.

What Causes Cellulite?

Cellulite can result from a number of factors, including heredity, aging, weight loss and hormonal changes. Cellulite affects people of various weights and is not necessarily associated with excess fat. Instead, poor skin elasticity and irregularities in connective tissue are to blame for giving the skin a “cottage cheese” or “orange peel” appearance. This explains why even some extremely fit people can suffer from cellulite.

Liposuction vs. Cellfina

Although both liposuction and Cellfina can help smooth body contours, they differ in their purposes. Here are some things to think about when considering these procedures:

  • Liposuction: Liposuction is used primarily as a method of fat removal. It is best for individuals who want to get rid of specific areas of fat on the body. Although liposuction can improve the look of cellulite in some people, it is not a sure-fire way to eliminate cellulite.
  • Cellfina: Unlike liposuction, Cellfina is designed specifically for cellulite reduction – not for fat removal. Cellfina targets the structure of the skin using laser technology to improve skin thickness and promote skin elasticity.

Combining Treatments

Sometimes the best results are achieved by combining liposuction with a cellulite treatment such as Cellfina. This dual approach is beneficial because it both reduces fat and evens out the surface of the skin. Our surgeons will evaluate your skin and your current physical condition and then recommend the most appropriate option for you.
