While dimples certainly look cute on the face, they do not have the same effect on the buttocks, stomach, or thighs. To eliminate the problem, several cosmetic treatment methods can be reviewed and considered. You can blame the formation of cellulite on fibrous bands known as septae. These bands, which connect the muscle fascia and skin, can pull down or break down over time, allowing a regular layer of fat beneath the skin to appear. As a result, the skin looks puckered or takes on a “cottage cheese” like appearance.
Around 85% of women have problems with cellulite, with the fatty deposits appearing on the thighs, buttocks, and abdomen. As skin loses its suppleness and elasticity, due to the aging process, the problem worsens. While a woman who is overweight will have a more pronounced form of cellulite, lean women can also display the fatty deposits. Therefore, you simply cannot count on dieting or exercise, alone, to get rid of cellulite and subcutaneous fat.
In most instances, cellulite treatments are more effective if a woman is not happy with having cellulite but is of a normal weight. If you are in general good health and have realistic treatment expectations, you can, at least, get rid of some of the dimpling.
Fat reduction can be achieved with Liposuction which is a surgical, invasive way of removing fat. For our patients who want to skip the hassle and cost of plastic surgery and seek a non-invasive body contouring treatment, we recommend CoolSculpting. CoolSculpting is an innovative, cosmetic procedure that uses a patented cooling device to safely freeze away fat from specific problem areas in the body.
