Achieve Smoother Skin with Cellulite Treatment


Cellulite appears on women of all ages and sizes. This puckering of the skin occurs when fibrous attachments beneath the skin pull down the skin around pockets of fat, causing dimples and a bumpy appearance. At Hurwitz Center for Plastic Surgery, we provide VASERsmooth® cellulite treatment for smoother, more youthful-looking skin.

Increasingly we're treating cellulite. That's a puckered skin phenomenon exclusively in women seen about the thighs and buttock regions as they get on in years. It could be seen in very thin women, it can be seen in heavy women, and this puckering or cottage cheese appearance is due to skin being pulled down to the muscle by fibrous attachments. The treatment of this is to release these fibrous attachments and redistribute the fat under the skin. We're pleased to offer Vaser Smooth as our primary approach to improving and reducing cellulite of the thighs and buttocks. Cellulite is sometimes considered the scourge of women. All kinds of topical treatments are out there and we've tried them all. None have worked nearly as well in our experience than the Vaser Smooth. At this point in time it requires a minimally invasive liposuction treatment to really improve it on a permanent basis. For years we've offered Endermologie and we still do. It gives temporary yet substantial improvement in your cellulite. We're also pleased to offer Endermologie. We have had a decade long successful experience in using that vacuum roller system for the noninvasive approach to minimal body contour improvement and cellulite reduction. When we do Vaser Lipo and Vaser Smooth, it's a minimally invasive operative procedure that requires one session only, but does benefit with postoperative care using Vaser Shape to smooth things out. When we use noninvasive approach, Vaser Shape, that requires multiple treatments, about 40 minutes each, three or four before we really see a permanent reduction of fat, bulges and cellulite. For Vaser Shape which is an outpatient treatment by estheticians you can go right back to work the next day and feel fine. For Vaser Lipo, a minimally invasive approach, it will take three or four days before you're able to resume minimal daily activities, and several weeks before you can be active. When we combine our Vaser Shape and Vaser Lipo with excisional surgery like an abdominoplasty, it's upwards to a month before you can get active again. If you are interested in cellulite treatment, or any of these other body contouring treatments, please call our office and we can arrange for an appointment. For those who came through the website, it is complimentary.
