Cellulite is a condition that affects approximately 90 percent of women and 10 percent of men. This rippling, lumpy skin condition can result from hormonal factors, genetics, diet, or lifestyle factors. Cellulite therapy has been a daunting task for many plastic surgeons and dermatologists who have attempted to fully treat the skin condition. There are several treatments that may help to reduce the appearance of cellulite, but none have proven to be as effective as Dr. Newall’s invention known as CelluLipo.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. German Newall has given his patients transformative results in body contouring, breast enhancement, and facial rejuvenation over the last 30 years of his career in aesthetic plastic surgery. His new innovation, CelluLipo, has inspired plastic surgeons to look at body contouring in an entirely new light.
CelluLipo is a body contouring procedure in which both liposuction and immediate fat grafting are performed on certain areas of the body. Fat grafting, or fat transfer, involves the removal of fatty tissue from one area of the body which is then purified and placed into other areas of the body to enhance or give volume where needed. The process of combining liposuction and immediate fat grafting will reduce irregularities from a volumetric standpoint. The result is a smooth and contoured cellulite-free area with proven long-lasting outcomes. In addition, part of the improvement noticed in the affected areas may in part be secondary to the introduction of stem cells derived from harvested fat (study in progress) which may improve the elasticity of the treated skin.
CelluLipo can be performed on both men and women. Any individual who has extensive cellulite will highly benefit from the CelluLipo procedure.
Even thin individuals who don’t have as much cellulite as larger individuals can undergo the CelluLipo procedure. On the other hand, larger or overweight individuals will notice a higher reduction in volume and improvement in cellulite after the procedure.
The most common areas of cellulite on the body include the buttock, thighs, and arms. CelluLipo will help treat these areas of laxity, giving you more tightened skin.
Recovery from liposuction and the immediate fat grafting is usually 1 to 2 weeks. Patients may notice bruising and tenderness in the areas where liposuction was performed, with minimal pain on the actual buttocks. Patients can resume sitting on their buttocks following the procedure.
Improvements will occur over the course of the time and the results are long-term. If you happen to lose weight, the fat will shrink, and if you gain weight, the fat will expand. In most cases, about 70 percent of the injected fat will remain in the area, and about 30 percent will be reabsorbed by the body. The results will continue to improve after surgery and up to a year.
The final quote will depend on the number of areas that will be treated. The range of this procedure is between $8,000 and $20,000.
