    Liposuction and Cellulite: Can It Improve the Appearance

    Many people struggle with stubborn fat and cellulite despite maintaining a healthy lifestyle through diet and exercise. To achieve smoother and more toned skin, some individuals turn to cosmetic procedures like liposuction. Laser lipo is a surgical technique that removes fat deposits from specific areas of the body. While it can be effective in targeting localized fat, many wonder if it can improve the appearance of cellulite. In this blog, Cosmetique Aesthetics, a  med spa in Los Angeles, CA, will explore the relationship between liposuction and cellulite.

    What Is Cellulite

    According to the Mayo Clinic, cellulite refers to the dimpled, lumpy appearance of the skin — most commonly seen on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. It occurs when fat cells begin to push against the connective tissue beneath the skin — this causes the skin to appear uneven.

    No matter your body shape, cellulite can affect anyone and at Cosmetique Aesthetics we will help you become your most confident self with our high-definition liposuction procedure.

    The Science Behind Liposuction

    Our med spa in Los Angeles offers liposuction — a surgical procedure performed to remove excess fat from targeted areas of the body. Our surgeons will insert a thin tube through small incisions in the skin. The tube is used to suction out fat cells in order to sculpt the body and reduce fat deposits.

    Cosmetique Aesthetics wants to note that liposuction is not a weight-loss procedure but rather a body-contouring technique.

    Liposuction’s Impact on Cellulite

    While high-definition liposuction can effectively remove unwanted fat, Cosmetique Aesthetics can not promise it will completely improve cellulite. There may be cases where our laser fat removal procedures may even exacerbate the appearance. This is because cellulite is not just about excess fat — it also involves the structure of the connective tissue and the way fat is distributed beneath the skin.

    One of our surgeons will discuss the risks of liposuction so you are well-informed prior to scheduling this procedure. If cellulite is a cause of concern for you, do not hesitate to ask us if laser lipo is right for you!

    Complementary Procedures for Cellulite

    As we mentioned, liposuction may not be able to effectively remove cellulite. That being said, we also offer other services like weight management that can help maintain a certain weight in a healthy and effective way. Our med spa in Los Angeles also offers coolsculpting procedures as an alternative to eliminate stubborn fat cells for good!

    While liposuction can be an effective procedure for targeting fat removal and body contouring, it may not be the best option for addressing cellulite concerns for some patients. Contact Cosmetique Aesthetics today and discuss if laser lipo is right for you in Los Angeles.
