Minimally-invasive Cellulite Reduction
The best solution on the market for cellulite reduction is called Cellfina. Cellfina is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to smooth and reduce the look of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. Cellulite is caused when fat cells become trapped in the fibrous septae under the skin, creating bulges, dimples and a "cottage cheese" appearance. Cellfina is unique because it targets the primary cause of cellulite, the fibrous septae. During the procedure, some numbing injections are performed to eliminate pain during the treatment. Then, a micro-blade is inserted to cut the fibrous septae, releasing the trapped fat and smoothing the area. Treatments typically take about an hour. Within three days after treatment, patients usually feel very satisfied with their results, and after two years, 96 percent of patients in studies were still satisfied with their results. Most patients experience short-term tenderness and swelling after their procedure.

2017 Body Goals Is Liposuction the Answer?
If you're considering liposuction, you may be wondering if you're a good candidate for the procedure or how successful the procedure is likely to be. A qualified plastic surgeon can evaluate your health and weight loss or body contouring goals to help you decide if liposuction is right for you. Here are the top five qualities of an ideal liposuction candidate to help get you started.
You have firm, elastic skin. Liposuction isn't always ideal for areas with significant cellulite because it can sometimes exacerbate cellulite (Be sure to consult with your physician; this isn't always the case.). Liposuction also isn't ideal for older people whose skin has naturally lost a lot of its elasticity.
You are in good health. Like any medical procedure, liposuction works better on healthy people because they recover faster and experience fewer side effects. Liposuction is not recommended for people with major mental or physical health issues, including depression and eating disorders.
You have reasonable, realistic expectations for the results. Liposuction won't give you a perfect body, but it will remove at least some of your unwanted fat. You have to optimize the results of liposuction treatments by maintaining a healthy lifestyle afterward.
You already eat a healthy diet. It's imperative to eat a healthy diet after receiving liposuction surgery to help speed the recovery process, to increase the results of the procedure and to help keep the body toned post-surgery.
You are physically active and your body is in good physical condition, but certain areas of your body do not respond well to exercise. This type of person is the most common candidate for liposuction and he or she also makes a successful one by being active and at a healthy body weight to begin with.
