Can You Beat Cellulite?

From a Cosmetic Surgeon continued...

Despite the initial discomfort, "patients have had a high degree of satisfaction, above the 90% mark," says Barry DiBernardo, MD. He's a board-certified plastic surgeon in Montclair, N.J., and the lead clinical investigator for Cellulaze.

So far, the procedure has only been studied in about 50 patients, DiBernardo says. He says people see about a 65% improvement in their cellulite, on average, and the improvement appears to last as long as 2 years.

DiBernardo says Cellulaze works well for dimpling and for women who have mild to moderate "hills and valleys." But he says it doesn't appear to be the right tool for women with deep depressions and large folds of fat.

“It is a technology that really does attempt to change the three-dimensional structure of the skin, which I think is very interesting," says Wanner, who has no financial interest in Cellulaze.

She cautions that there are still questions that need to be answered, like who the technology may work best for and how long the results may last.

Sadick agrees. "It appears to be probably the most effective single cellulite treatment out there, but just how effective it is and what the long-term results are [are] still not known," he says.
