Cellulite is a modification of the fatty tissue on the Po or thighs of women. The dents-shaped tissue surface reminiscent of the 'skin' of Orange. So there are not the actual fat cells, causing these orange peel, but the problem lies in the connective tissue walls of the subcutaneous fatty tissue and the collagen fibers in the dermis. A grid of collagen strands running through the layer of tissue and swells more or less depending on the hormonal situation (estrogen).
If nutrition, scrubs and creams have not helped remains still the way to the plastic surgeon. With liposuction, excess fat in problem areas are sucked by an experienced surgeries and at the same time the skin will be streamlined.
If cellulite is already far advanced and the dents are very pronounced the contour is enhanced significantly by liposuction, but not any unevenness can be corrected by liposuction. In addition, a skin tightening is performed when wrinkles or excess, sagging skin. The skin tightening can improve with the result but not all dents remove.
Classification of severity of cellulite
The orange peel is visible only in a light structure, if one squeezes the skin with your fingers. Cellulite so early can be treated very well and regress completely.
Cellulite is visible only when the muscles are tense.
Slight dents in the skin are always recognizable.
Deep dents are always visible. Appearance of the skin can be improved while still in the stadium, but a complete form back of cellulite is no longer possible.
Usually is the cellulite on the back of the thigh and caused psychological problems in the third and fourth stage when many women sometimes even pain.
The roll suction massage long practiced in America is offered as an alternative to liposuction. Using the appearance of the skin may improve something. Cellulite roller with structures on the outside are rolled under slight pressure on the Problezonen. This promotes blood circulation and stimulates the removal of slag.
All creams advertised on the market are highly controversial in their effectiveness, since this a bit to improve only the appearance of the skin, but fundamentally combat not the cellulite. Creams may work best in combination with a sea salt peeling. The minerals and trace elements in sea salt help to purify the tissue and drain. Here, the blood circulation and the metabolism is stimulated. Creams can work better.
