Your cellulite problem is a common one. Fortunately, finally there are effective ways to minimize this problem. Perhaps the least invasive one is Cellfina™. Cellfina is the only FDA-cleared minimally invasive, one-time procedure clinically proven to improve the appearance of cellulite for at least two years—the longest FDA-cleared duration for a cellulite treatment. A straightforward solution to cellulite, Cellfina™, combines a proven approach with innovative, proprietary technology, to produce precise, long-lasting results and has a high satisfaction rating on RealSelf. Together with Velashape 3, a non invasive procedure to help "shrink wrap the skin" and further minimize cellulite as a combination treatment is perhaps your best chance for taking care of this tough problem. Cellulaze is also a possible treatment but much more invasive
Thank you for your question.
While exercise may reduce the appearance of some cellulite in overweight people, true cellulite will need to be treated clinically.
For treating #cellulite, my office typically recommends one of three treatment plans: #Cellfina, #VelaShape III, #ThremiSmooth.
#Cellfina is the newest technology and probably most effective. It is a minimally invasive one-time procedure under local anesthetic that removes the fibrous bands under the skin that cause fat to bulge through creating the appearance of cellulite. The results are fairly #permanent.
#VelaShape and #ThermiSmooth are #non-invasive #bodyshaping products that can help reduce the appearance of your cellulite over the course of multiple sessions.
Book an in-person consultation with a #BoardCertified #PlasticSurgeon to determine which treatment plan is right for you.
Best of luck.
Cellulite and saddle bags
Cellulite and saddle bags are probably best treated with a combination of Cellfina and liposuction. Cellfina has been shown to have patient satisfaction rates over 90% three years following treatment.
Cellfina / Cellulite Reduction/ Liposuction/ Skin Tightening / BBL/ High Definition Procedures
Cellfina is an FDA approved minimally invasive procedure that reduces the
appearance of cellulite for at least two years on the buttocks and back of the
thighs of women.
It works by releasing the internal bands that cause the cellulite dimpling
and so we have not seen any fat atrophy. You should not see much of a
difference with weight gain or loss but this also has not been studied.
Other areas of the body with dimpling, it is important to make sure it is
truly cellulite before treatment.
It is common to have swelling bruising and firmness after the procedure.
This can last for a few weeks.
Cellfina has shown 100% noticeable improvement and 96% satisfaction in all
patients at 2 years.
Cellfina is designed to be a one time procedure. It can be used on women with all skin types but caution should be taken if
theres a history of keloiding. It can also be combined with other treatments such as Thermi or Ulthera if skin tightening is needed.
We have done Sculpsure and Coolsculpting if fat reduction is wanted, but
its best to wait 3 months to see the results before proceeding.
It can also be done at the same time as other procedures such as
liposuction and BBL or as a stand alone procedure in the office.
Since Cellfina outcomes can be based on technique and experience, please
see a board certified plastic surgeon that specializes body contouring to see
if Cellfina or other treatments are available to meet your goals.

Generally exercise will leave you more tones, but it will not get rid of cellulite. I suggest looking into Celfina technology which employs subcision to treat cellulite with excellent results. Look at our website for more information. Good luck!
Exercise and Surgery
regular exercise and healthy eating, you can almost always improve your
appearance. However in instances such as saddlebags and cellulite, the root of
the problem can often be genetic and the problem areas will still exist despite your best efforts.
Leading a healthy lifestyle along with a combination of treatments may help
with these areas of concern. Be sure to visit a board-certified surgeon and ask
about your options and to see if you are a good candidate for CoolSculpting and/or
Weight loss and exercise should be first part of plan. For resistant areas thermi rf radiofrequency can safely target localized areas by both reducing fat and tightening skin. This is done under local anesthetic and has a very high approval rate.
Thank you for your question. Ideally, photos would be helpful to assess your current situation. Saddlebags are caused by a genetic predisposition to fat deposits in this area, weight gain and skin laxity. Cellulite is a genetic predisposition to skin dimpling which is independent of weight gain. It can be seen in normal weight individuals. Diet and exercise will definately improve your health and appearance and should be the cornerstone of your self improvement plan. It probably will not completely eliminate genetic saddlebags, loose skin or cellulite. The treatment recommendations all depend on how severe the problem is and can range from non invasive, minimally invasive or surgical options. Consider a consultation to discuss your options. Best wishes.
Saddlebags can be improved with CoolSculpting which is non-invasive technology the freezes the fat. The Cellulite can be treated with Celfina which is minimally invasive. It releases the bands forming the dimples that give Cellulite its appearance.
