Are you describing cellulite or stretch marks. A physical exam is needed to make recommendations. If you truly have cellulite, cellulaze may be a good option for you. Cellulaze uses a laser under the skin to attack the anatomic causes of cellulite. It is a minimally invasive procedure that takes 1-2 hours and can be safely done under local or just IV sedation. It is an FDA approved treatment for cellulite and requires only one treatment. Hope this is helpful.

Best solution for lumpy tummy
It's really difficult to recommend the ideal treatment for you without seeing you for a physical exam and consultation. Not all lumpiness is cellulite. For the fibrous bands and dimpling that occur with cellulite, Cellulaze has been an excellent procedure for our patients. Cellulaze can help to release the fibrous bands that tether skin down, thicken the skin (improving its integrity and making it smoother), as well as melt specific small lumps of fat. If what you have on your abdomen is truly cellulite, Cellulaze may help, but you may need liposuction or perhaps even a tummy tuck if there is loose or extra skin that needs tightened or removed. For the answer that is most appropriate for you specifically, have a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon that is familiar with these procedures.

Bumps on Belly?
I am wondering if what you are describing is really stretch marks? If you have excess skin and stretch marks and you are done having kids, you may want to explore a tummy tuck. Stretch marks are not cellulite.

Cellulaze to help with bumps on belly
Cellulaze is a new procedure to help rid you of Cellulite, if you have areas of fat that are not responding to diet and exercise then Cellulaze will work for you. This procedure fights cellulite from under the skin while tightening the skin.
Without seeing at least a photograph, it is difficult to make a suggestion for you. However, it may not be cellulite that you see. Cellulite is most often seen in the thighs/ buttocks. However, there are many options for rejuvenation of the abdomen following childbirth so don't despair.
Cellulite/bumps on belly
Hello and thanks for your question. Without photos or a physical exam, it is difficult to give a more educated suggestion. The cellulite or bumps might be amenable to either Smart Lipo or Cellulaze, depending on the severity of them. Any of the non-invasive or topical techniques will more than likely only give a temporary improvement in the appearance of these bumps. Best of luck and I hope this helps.

Cellulite on the belly after pregnancy
It is uncommon to find cellulite on the abdominal area as it is more common on the legs, thighs and buttocks. It is likely that you have some dimpling and excess fatty tissue on the abdomen and laser lipolysis would be a great option with Smart Lipo. Of course, I would have to see your abdominal area before recommending any surgical treatment. If indeed you do have Cellulite, then Cellulaze would be an appropriate treatment. This laser addresses the dimpling in the skin by using a side cutting laser to release the bands holding the skin down to the deeper tissues
