Cellulite refers to the collection of fat (enlarged fat cells under the skin actually) under the skin and above the muscle that makes the skin look lumpy like chunks of cotton balls. This is not really a condition that needs to be worried about but it surely doesn’t help the skin look good.
Liposuction – removal of excess fat that you are not able to burn even after sincere and dedicated effort working out. Get rid of the additional fat from hips, lower back, thighs, buttocks, abdomen and from under the breasts.
Unlike the rest of the body, thighs have less fibrous tissue as a result of which, the fat formed in this region may not look even and is soft that can be easily removed with a cannula during liposuction. Interestingly saddlebags are found more in women than men.
“One most common reason I see in my patients who come with darker inner thighs problem is ‘obesity’ or ‘being overweight’” says Dr. Deepa Ganesh, popular cosmetic gynaecologist in at DG Laser & Cosmetic Gynecology Clinic, Chennai.
In our previous article, we have covered about ‘Mini tummy tuck’ where in the just the lower bottom of the abdomen is corrected. In an extended tummy tuck (which is similar to abdominoplasty procedure), the fat from the love handles (or side flanks) and lower back is also removed. This should sound as a boon to many people who work out regularly but still find it hard to lose those love handles.
Liposuction, also called lipoplasty or liposculpture suction, lipectomy or just lipo is a process in which the fat under the skin is broken up, dislodged and sucked out through a tube. Most common areas where liposuction is perform include abdomen, back (backside of love handles), buttocks, chest (for both men and women), inner side of the knees, love handles / flanks, under the chin (to remove double chin), thighs (inner thighs, outer side of thighs), upper arms.
