According to The Mayo Clinic, eight out of ten women have some degree of cellulite, which is probably the reason you see lotions touting they can lessen cellulite all over fashion magazines.  The bottom line is these lotions and creams don’t work.  If they did, it would be the biggest news since stem cells, and the inventor of the formula have more money than Oprah!  At most these products temporarily plump the cells and reduce the appearance of cellulite.  As of now, the only effective method for getting rid of cellulite is liposuction.  Liposuction is also called body contouring.  At the Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center in Houston, triple board certified Michael Eisemann, M.D. is highly skilled in the latest liposuction techniques such as Lumescent Liposuction Vaser, Liposuction with Ultrasound Probe, Laser Liposuction, and Power Assisted Liposuction.  Forget what you think you know about liposuction, and usually that’s based on what you’ve seen on old video footage from news shows airing decades ago.  Today’s liposuction techniques are less invasive and promote faster healing post operatively.  If you’re tired of hiding your things because of cellulite, then consider getting rid of it!  Contact The Eisemann Plastic Surgery Center today to schedule an appointment to find out if you are a good candidate for liposuction.
