Are Lipolysis injections the answer?


I am a 53 year old woman who had Cellulaze done on my thighs. 3 years later my thighs have never lost the excess skin and now my thighs are very loose, saggy and bumpy. I was told Lipolysis injections (3 treatments) would help retract and smooth out my skin. I believe I am predisposed to lack of elasticity in my skin as I remember my mom having saggy thighs as well. Any thoughts on the procedure?


Sorry to hear about your loose thigh skin. Lipolysis is not likely to smooth your skin. There are some devices that may tighten skin such as Thermage. If there is much loose skin, a thigh lift may be an option. 

Consider an appointment with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon for more details.
