Reno, NV — According to Dr. Tiffany McCormack, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Reno, Cellulaze™ is a proven method of reducing cellulite on the hips, thighs, abdomen, and buttocks in a single treatment. While results will be noticeable in about four weeks, the aesthetic appearance will continue to improve over three months following the cellulite reduction procedure, and can last up to three years or more. For this reason, Dr. McCormack says Spring can be an excellent season to treat patients with Cellulaze™:
“The Spring months often provide ample time for Cellulaze™ results to appear before the arrival of bathing suit season and warm-weather clothing in the Summer.”
The Reno plastic surgeon says she constantly strives to provide her patients with the safest and most effective cosmetic enhancement procedures, which is why adding Cellulaze™ was important to her and her team:
“Cellulaze™ is the first procedure shown to significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite in a single treatment. The fact that it is minimally invasive played an integral role in wanting to provide this procedure for my patients, as many of them are mothers that simply do not have the time necessary for recovery from more invasive surgical procedures.”
At her Reno plastic surgery practice, Dr. McCormack says cellulite is a concern for a majority of her patients. While many consider cellulite as a fat problem that can be addressed through rigorous diet and exercise, she says this is a common misconception: “I remind my patients that cellulite is often caused by factors outside of their control. Genetics, skin thickness, the natural aging process, and the body’s distribution of fat are all unique to each patient and affect the development of cellulite.”
Cellulite begins to appear as fat pockets develop and push connective tissue beneath the skin closer to the surface, which causes the dimples and bumps commonly associated with cellulite. Dr. McCormack says the cellulite reduction procedure works in three distinct ways: level out fat lumps, treat dimples by releasing fibrous bands pulling on the skin, and stimulate collagen production for improved skin depth and elasticity.
The minimally invasive procedure typically takes 1.5 hours to complete, and involves a local anesthetic that is applied before several small incisions are made in the targeted areas. Dr. McCormack says most patients are able to return to their normal daily activities directly after the procedure, and any bruising should dissipate within days.
