Cellulite is a very common condition in women. Cellulite is not necessarily more common in those who are overweight or obese. Cellulite is also found in slimmer, more toned individuals. Cellulite is most often on the buttocks, hips and upper legs. Cellulite in itself carries no health risks. However, the dimpled appearance can look very unsightly and this could lead to psychological upset for many women. There are many non-surgical approaches to cellulite treatments – none has been found to have any long-term benefit. This includes creams, lotions, pills and massage therapy. All have been found to have a temporary effect at best.
Our revolutionary new treatment for cellulite – Achieve permanent results – Minimally invasive surgical procedure performed using tumescent anaesthesia – The vibrational and rotational effect of the cannula helps to detach the connective tissue strands leading to the skin dimpling – No heat produced like with lasers and therefore no risk of skin burns – Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is injected into the treated areas for additional effect. The smoothening of the skin texture is much enhanced when PRP is added to the treatment regimen. – Liposculpture can also be performed at the same time if desired. The procedure is performed as a day-case. This means you can be admitted, have the procedure, and go home on the same day. The procedure takes approximately 1.5 hours. Firstly, the areas containing cellulite will be marked while you are standing. Tiny incisions approximately 2mm long are made near the areas containing cellulite. Tumescent anaesthesia fluid is injected through the incisions into the marked treatment areas to numb the area and also to reduce the risk of bleeding. A specially designed cannula with a special patented dual action of both vibration and rotation is used in the cellulite areas.
The cannula vibrates at an infrasonic frequency ideally suited to disrupt the connective tissue fibres causing the cellulite. This creates a much smoother appearance. What is the recovery period for this procedure? You can expect to resume your normal activities at 2 days after the procedure. There will be some bruising and swelling after the procedure. Intense physical exercise can be resumed after two weeks.
