July 8, 2013 – When you think of body contouring cosmetic surgery procedures, the one in particular that probably comes to mind is liposuction. But there are other methods available for reducing fat, and certain areas of the body may only have small amounts of cellulite that need to be removed. In those cases, Cellulaze may be the best choice, according to a recent article in the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) newsletter.

The thighs are one body area in particular that were highlighted in the ASAPS article. Cellulite in the thighs is located just beneath the skin, often causing the skin to appear dimpled uneven. Since liposuction is used more for removing larger amounts of fat, it can’t be used in a more delicate location such as right beneath the surface of the skin. That’s why Cellulaze is a better cosmetic surgery treatment choice, according to the article.

Cellulaze works by melting fat with a small laser cannula inserted just under the skin. It also breaks down the fibers that form as we age and cause the dimpling effect. Cellulaze also prompts new collagen to grow, giving the treated area a more smooth and fresh appearance.

The treatment costs about $4,000 for both legs, and like all other cosmetic surgery procedures should only be performed by an experienced, board-certified cosmetic surgeon. So if you have small problem areas of cellulite on your thighs, consult with a cosmetic surgeon and see if you’re a good candidate for Cellulaze.
