Break Up with Cellulite Before Bikini Season

Break Up with Cellulite Before Bikini Season

Do you keep your thighs and backside covered at the pool or beach because of cellulite? Don’t let cellulite hold you back this summer. At Brzowski Plastic Surgery, we can smooth out stubborn, dimple-like cellulite for good in just one minimally-invasive Cellfina treatment.

Thanks to female hormones, female skin structure, higher body-fat percentages and even genetics, cellulite is more of a problem for women than it is for men. In fact, cellulite affects an estimated 90 – 95% of women.

While cellulite is related to body fat, losing weight is not a reliable way to erase or reduce cellulite. Whether you are a size 2 or a size 22, very fit or out of shape, you can experience cellulite. Not even tennis pro Maria Sharapova or supermodel Kate Moss are immune to cellulite.
What is Cellulite?

Cellulite results when the layer of fat beneath the skin pushes upwards through layers of fibrous bands. These bands pulling on the layer of fat result in a dimpled appearance.
Most Cellulite Treatments Don’t Work
There are plenty of products and treatments on the market that claim to fix or improve cellulite, but most of them are temporary at best. Creams and massage therapies typically require ongoing or multiple treatments to maintain an improved appearance.
The Cellfina Difference
Cellfina, a minimally invasive FDA-cleared device, works by permanently cutting the fibrous bands beneath the skin, releasing the dimples. Studies of the device have demonstrated that the results are long-lasting, with patients’ cellulite still visibly reduced five years post-treatment.

“The origin of that tethered spot is released and the skin immediately elevates back up,” explains Dr. Brzowski. “It’s an instant result.”

Men Want to Look Good Too

Men have the advantage of looking more and more distinguished as they age. Out here in the American West, home of the stereotypical rugged cowboy and hard-working ranch hand, a few wrinkles and a slightly weathered look can certainly add to a man’s sex appeal.

While men don’t always want to look younger, they do always want to feel confident in their appearance.

Popular plastic surgery services for men range from customized skincare plans to more invasive surgical procedures like liposuction. Men of all ages and all walks of life can benefit from the options Brzowski Plastic Surgery has to offer.

“We can really help these men keep their masculinity, but still improve their overall appearance,” says Dr. Brzowski.
Healthy Skin is Attractive
Well-worn leather boots may be sexy, but skin that looks like tough, tanned cowhide is not.

When it comes to skincare, a little bit of education and a few good products go a long way. At Brzowski Plastic Surgery we have products that can reverse sun damage, moisturize and protect your skin.

The first step towards a fresher looking face is to come in for a skin assessment. We’ll talk about your goals and help you come up with a skincare plan that works for you.
Botox
Putting your best face forward doesn’t mean having a face devoid of wrinkles. Too many wrinkles, however, can make you look older than you feel.

Botox, when done conservatively, will soften harsh wrinkles without erasing them completely. Here at Brzowski Plastic Surgery we don’t want you to look too old or too young, just extremely handsome.
The Male Chest
“There are other things that men have always been concerned about as they age and their clothing starts fitting differently,” explains [...]

Sun Exposure & Keeping your Skin Looking Young

This time of year I’m particularly mindful of the damage that the sun does to the skin of my patients. Since we do a lot of face and breast work, those areas, in particular, end up drawing my attention quite a bit.

One critical approach to preventing that damage is minimizing sun exposure: avoiding those bright daylight hours of 10am-2pm; and the liberal use of good, broad spectrum sunscreens. Because finding the products can be challenging, our office carries some of the best products available to achieve the highest level of defense. Some of our products even include a tinted sunscreen that can replace your makeup.

Lastly, treating those sun damaged areas always begins with fading creams. The best of those is Lytera 2.0 from SkinMedica. In my view, the results are superior when we also add a Retinol product, which is why I almost always sell them together. It’s always possible that additional treatments with laser/light-based devices will be needed, those do cost a bit more and require the patient not be tanned and not currently seeing sun exposure.

Therefore, in the midst of our nice, warm summer, sunscreen, Lytera and Retinols are an immediate course of action you can take right now to protect your skin and keep its very best! Contact us today at Brzowski Plastic Surgery to learn more about our skin products and how we can help.
