If you are unhappy with the appearance of cellulite on your thighs, you may think a thigh lift is the right treatment. After all, it promises to tighten the skin of the thigh to give it a smoother appearance. However, a thigh lift is not recommended as a cellulite treatment and will rarely give good results in correcting it, and because a thigh lift is an invasive surgical procedure, it should be used only when it gives good results.

A thigh lift involves removing some of the skin and underlying tissue of the thigh. The remaining tissue is tightened over the muscle to alleviate sagging. Tightening the skin may temporarily reduce the appearance of cellulite, but since cellulite is structural to the skin and fat that has been repositioned, it just comes along for the ride and will soon reappear.

A better cellulite treatment is Cellulaze, which works to address the three causes of cellulite:

  • Cellulaze removes fat from the pillowy pockets that create the raised part of the orange peel texture.
  • Cellulaze also breaks some of the connective tissue that pulls down to create the lowered part of the orange peel texture.
  • Cellulaze stimulates your skin so that it becomes thicker, more elastic, and better able to conceal the remaining hills and valleys.

As a result of this targeted treatment, patients see great, long-lasting results from Cellulaze that are unequalled by any other cellulite treatment.
