Cellulite Reduction

The human body is a beautiful thing. With a healthy diet and exercise, it’s possible to keep our bodies in shape and our skin free of blemishes. However, there are aspects to achieving our dream bodies that aren’t easily fixed through lifestyle changes. Cellulite, in particular, is a structural issue unrelated to excess fat that can make the skin appear irregular and lumpy.

We’re proud to offer cellulite reduction in Hampton Roads right here at our Williamsburg and Newport News offices. We use the first and only treatment FDA-cleared to reduce cellulite for at least three years. Unlike creams, massage, or even laser treatments, our services target the cause of cellulite, not just the appearance, for long-lasting results in as little as one treatment.

In this minimally invasive procedure, our doctors target the lumpy, puckered areas of skin by releasing tough, fibrous connective tissue cords called septae that can become overly tight in certain areas of the body. This requires no surgery whatsoever. Instead, we use a tiny, needle-like device to release the fibrous bands pulling on the skin, only requiring local anesthesia.

Advantages of Cellulite Reduction:

  • Long-lasting results for at least three years
  • Targets the root cause of cellulite, not just its appearance
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Local numbing anesthetic
  • Effective treatment for irregular and lumpy skin
  • No need for creams, massage, or laser treatments
  • Visible results in as little as one treatment

Liposuction is America’s most popular cosmetic procedure, with over 258,000 procedures performed in 2018. This procedure can remove excess subcutaneous fat resistant to diet and exercise. Liposuction can contour and shape common problem areas such as the stomach, hips, waist, thighs, buttocks, arms, legs, and neck to improve overall body shape and image.

Liposuction is performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. In this procedure, the surgeon creates tiny incisions and uses a thin suction device called a cannula to suction out subcutaneous fat deposits. Final results will generally take shape over 2 to 3 months after your liposuction in Hampton Roads, Virginia.

The Ideal Candidates for Liposuction Include Those Who:

  • Have excess subcutaneous fat that is resistant to diet and exercise
  • Wish to alter or change the contours of their body
  • Would like to reduce fat under the chin, on the arms, abdomen, hips, thighs, or legs
  • Are generally healthy, near-normal weight, and desire contour changes
  • Have already worked to achieve results through diet and exercise

Fat Transfer

Have you ever wished you could get rid of the fat in one area and use it to enhance another? Stubborn fat often hangs on to problem areas like the abdomen, “love handles,” thighs, and more, while areas we’d like to enhance remain unchanged or even worsen with time. With modern plastic surgery techniques, our plastic surgeons can harvest fat from a troubled area and re-inject it to fill in depressions, wrinkles, and scars on your face, cheeks, lips, and more.

Fat transfer is an excellent option for patients who would otherwise turn to fillers for temporary volume increases or to lift procedures for more involved rejuvenation. Since fat transfer falls somewhere between the two, you can achieve all the natural results of temporary fillers with the lasting results of more involved procedures.

The Ideal Candidates for Fat Transfer Include Those Who:

  • Desire to enhance specific areas of their body
  • Have unwanted fat in other parts of their body
  • Seek natural and long-lasting results
  • Want to fill in depressions, wrinkles, or scars
  • Prefer a procedure that falls between temporary fillers and more involved surgeries
