Is there a treatment for cellulite?

Cellulite affects millions of women. This dimpled skin often appears on the buttocks and thighs and can cause embarrassment for many. Cellulite is visible when wearing a swimsuit or shorts. Williamsville, NY area women who have tried creams, massages, and other products that promise to banish cellulite are often left unhappy with the results—if they even achieve any! This is because cellulite needs to be treated underneath the skin, these tight fiber bands cause the puckering of the skin. By cutting these bands, the skin is smoothed.

What treatment is available to achieve results?

At Smooth Solutions Medical Aesthetics, Dr. Jack Bertolino offers VASERsmooth for the treatment of cellulite. VASERsmooth works in three ways.

  • First, it cuts the tight fibers that cause cellulite development.
  • Second, it stimulates tissue tightening to firm the area.

Body Design and True Contouring

Body design and contouring is a “learning curve,” it is not just done on the fly after buying a machine that states or uses the term “contouring” or “sculpting” (think “CoolSculpting”). Any art form should arouse a passion in the artist whether it be a sculptor using clay or marble or a physician sculpting fat and skin around muscle. No machine can sculpt a person, only another human using a sculpting cannula and his or her hands can truly design what that patient’s body can offer.

There are a lot of variables to consider when selecting candidates and doing consultations. First, the size of the patient and the amount of fat to be removed. Do they need surgery because of their size? Skin turgor – is the skin too lax, has it been damaged by large pregnancies? Will the skin come in nicely after suction? The patient deserves to know the answers so as not to keep him or her in the dark. Results and honesty matter. Professionalism is key, especially with dealing with the patient’s well being, and the fact that they are spending their money. Patient reviews matter to your bottom line, so do your very best for them. That’s common sense.

Drawing the body out anatomically is the doctor’s best blueprint to giving the patient results with respects to line, shape, symmetry and form. Not everyone can look like an athlete, so be honest. Small surgical scars should be placed in areas of the body that hide their appearance so your work looks natural, almost virgin. That’s a great result with a happy client and hopefully a bang up review, which leads to more business.

A learning curve takes time, patience and reading. I love the work of Alfredo Hoyos, a Columbian plastic surgeon who uses the Vaser Hi Def lipo system like me – with fantastic results. Lastly, a physician/artist should pick his tool. I love the Vaser Hi Def. ultrasound system. It helps break down fat quickly and painlessly, making removal and sculpting a breeze. It also allows for fat transfer as the fat stem cells are not killed but left intact to be placed in another region if the patient wants. Remember, do not be fooled by advertising gimmicks that use keywords like “sculpting” or “contouring.” Look at results. Only an artist can create, sculpt.
