Cellulite is an important problem especially for women, whether they are overweight or thin. As a word, it means infection of the skin and subcutaneous tissue.
It is a disease that occurs as a result of weight gain and loss due to genetic or hormonal reasons, circulatory disorders in the skin and subcutaneous tissue, and deterioration in the structure of elastic fibers. It is mostly seen in the hips, calves and legs. Fat accumulation in tissues leads to circulatory problems and edema. In this case, it increases the compression of the fat and leads to the formation of fibrous adhesions around it. These fibrous adhesions pull the skin inward and cause lumps to form in the subcutaneous fat tissue. As a result, an “orange peel appearance” occurs on the skin.
Today, different surgical and non-surgical methods are used in the treatment of cellulite. Cellulite creams, cellulite lotions, ultrasound, electro-lipolysis, lipolysis, ozone, carboxytherapy, pressotherapy and massage are some of these methods.
Mesotherapy as a non-surgical method, and superficial liposuction (fat pulling) and lipofilling (fat filling) with surgery are the methods used successfully in the treatment of cellulite.
With superficial liposuction, excess fat collection close to the skin in cellulite areas is removed. In addition, fibrous adhesions that pull the skin down are separated with special cannulas and the orange peel appearance on the skin is removed. A smoother shape can be achieved by filling the sunken areas, if any, in cellulite areas. It is possible to get good results in cellulite treatment with superficial liposuction in patients with good skin elasticity and without severe cellulitis.
