Could Cellulaze even out my skin and correct bumps and waviness left by liposuction from 5 years ago?
I had tumscent liposuction done on the front of my thighs 5 years ago. I was left with minor bumps, lumps, and waviness. I was recently told by a doctor that Cellulaze, the new procedure used for cellulite, would help by tightening up the skin and stimulating collagen growth. I am a bit skeptical and do not want to make things worse. Could it really even out my skin?
Cellulaze as well as several other new advancements in medical technology could assist with your lumps and bumps post liposuction, dependent upon their severity. Consider a consult with one of the members of the ASAPS in your area regarding your concerns.
