One of the most common issues that many cosmetic surgeons and dermatologists deal with is the removal of cellulite, which are fat pockets located just beneath the surface of your skin. However, there are a lot of different cellulite treatment options, so many that it can often be difficult to determine the best option for you. Listed below are two cellulite eliminating procedures to consider as well as the pros and cons of each in order to help you pick the best option for you.
One of the most tried and true options for removing cellulite from the body is through liposuction. Liposuction utilizes a cannula, which is a hollow rod that is inserted into various parts of your body to remove the fat deposits. A major benefit to this approach is that it can be used to remove cellulite from a wide range of areas of your body, such as your buttocks, back, chin, and abdomen.
Another benefit to this approach is that liposuction can often offer the fastest results with noticeable results appearing immediately after the procedure. In addition, the final results will usually only take a couple of days after the completion of the procedure to appear. This also means that liposuction will often only require one treatment per area to achieve your desired results.
However, the main downside to a liposuction treatment is that it is an invasive procedure, so complications can arise with the anesthesia. In addition, this procedure can often require an uncomfortable or painful recovery period.
An alternative to liposuction to consider when trying to eliminate cellulite is Venus Freeze. Venus Freeze is a procedure that uses electromagnetic fields and radio waves to make changes to your skin and the cellulite. The primary advantage to this approach is that it is not an invasive procedure, so you will not have to worry about an uncomfortable recovery period or issues with being under general anesthesia.
Another benefit provided by this option is that is is very versatile in that it can be used to treat a wide range of different issues. For example, Venus Freeze treatments can be used to not only eliminate cellulite but also to stimulate the production of collagen which can result in a reduction of wrinkles or tighter skin in the treated areas.
The main downside to this procedure is that follow-up procedures are required throughout the year to maintain the results, but those follow-up sessions will tend to be fairly short.
