I feel like numerous treatments may be needed, for significant lumps, dents, cellulite, sagging skin, etc. I'm wondering if there are things like clinical trials that I could consider to help get some of the treatment I may need. This definitely affects my confidence, self esteem and way of life. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thank you...

Consider cellulaze - an FDA approved one time treatment that utilizes a 1440 nm wavelength laser to accomplish 3 things: 1) melt away fat bulging out 2) break up fibrous septae (attachments) that create the indentations and 3) help thicken the dermis (skin) to prevent future recurrence. The procedure can take between 60-90 minutes and can be completed under local or just IV sedation (depending on the length of your procedure and number of areas being treated). To see your final results takes between 3-6 months. You can visit the cellulaze . com website to learn more about the procedure and find a plastic surgeon who performs the procedure near you. Best of luck!
Suggestions for treatment
As crazy as it may sound, you can never know how simple or difficult your options could be until you have an exam and consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. Patients are often pleasantly surprised that what they thought would require major work may not be so major or costly at all. Once you and your surgeon figure out the ideal course of treatment for you, you can look into programs like CareCredit to help make your goals attainable. Being truly happy and confident in the skin you're in can be priceless. Good luck.

Thank you for your question. The best treatment for cellulite is Cellulaze - a new non-invasive treatment that has seen amazing results so far.Cellulaze is the only minimally invasive laser procedure designed to attack the structure of cellulite beneath your skin. Cellulaze is backed by many years of clinical research.

Thicker and more elastic skin can help flatten and smooth the skin surface to improve the appearance of cellulite. In addition, 93% of patients surveyed were satisfied or very satisfied with their results at one year post their procedure, and all would recommend the Cellulaze cellulite laser treatment to a friend.
