Cellulite Reduction Q & A

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is body fat that appears as dimpled, lumpy, or cottage cheese-like flesh. You may notice it on your:

  • Abdomen
  • Hips
  • Thighs
  • Upper arms
  • Buttocks

Cellulite is more common in adolescent and adult women. While its presence isn’t cause for concern, you may not like the way cellulite looks.

What are the risk factors for cellulite?

Cellulite occurs when fibrous connective cords push against fat tissue, causing uneven surfaces or dimpling. Anybody can develop cellulite, but certain factors increase your risk of developing it, such as:

  • Being a woman
  • Older age
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Weight gain
  • Family history of cellulite
  • A sedentary lifestyle
  • Becoming pregnant

If cellulite bothers you, you don’t have to live with it. Simple, noninvasive treatment options are within reach at Garden Plastic Surgery & MedAesthetics.

What is the treatment for cellulite?

Your aesthetics specialist reviews your medical history, examines your cellulite, and creates a personalized treatment plan just for you. They might recommend one or more of the following:

Lifestyle changes

Making lifestyle changes may help reduce cellulite, especially if you’re above your ideal body weight. Examples include weight loss, a healthy diet, and regular exercise. But cellulite can also occur in people who are at or near their ideal weight.

Contoura Body FX and Mini FX

Contoura Body FX and Mini FX are nonsurgical cellulite treatments that use radiofrequency energy with heated suction to target underlying fat layers and destroy fat cells. Over time, your body naturally eliminates the damaged cells. 

During treatment, you might feel gentle pressure or heat, but it’s well-tolerated by patients. No anesthesia, surgery, cutting, or needles are needed.

Your provider might recommend a series of Body FX or Mini FX treatments over a six-week period to achieve optimal results, and each session lasts 30-60 minutes. The result is less cellulite and smoother, tighter skin. 

After treatment, you may experience some redness, but there’s no downtime so you can resume normal everyday activities.

Am I a good candidate for Contoura?

Your provider lets you know if you’re a good candidate for Contoura treatment for cellulite reduction. While it reduces stubborn fat, Contoura isn’t designed for significant weight loss as it’s not a replacement for healthy eating and regular exercise.
