When researching the Mommy Makeover, many women seek to answer one of the most commonly asked questions surrounding the procedure: will a Mommy Makeover get rid of my cellulite? The answer is maybe. Many factors may make cellulite treatable with the liposuction portion of a Mommy Makeover; however, it will likely require a specialized treatment from Dr. Mendieta. This is why it is important to undergo a consultation with Dr. Mendieta to fully evaluate your physique to determine if dramatic or moderate cellulite reduction is possible with liposuction and a Mommy Makeover.

What Is Cellulite and Why Is It so Hard to Get Rid Of?

Cellulite is the dimpling of the skin caused by the development and tightening of fibrous connective tissue strands throughout fat deposits that pull too tightly on certain areas. Cellulite can also be understood as an imbalance in the relationship between the skin, fat deposits, and connective tissues. Because of this deep fibrous relationship, it can be difficult for diet or exercise to eradicate its appearance. 

How Would a Mommy Makeover Get Rid of Cellulite?

A Mommy Makeover that includes liposuction can remove fat deposits in a given area, perhaps lessening the appearance of the cellulite without necessarily removing it. 

Another way a Mommy Makeover may get rid of the appearance of cellulite is by removing the areas responsible for the cellulite entirely. This would occur through the excision of skin common in body contouring; however, the primary functions of most Mommy Makeover surgeries are the comprehensive transformations of the breasts, abdomen, and underlying body fat. 

For most patients, the removal of cellulite after a Mommy Makeover isn’t dramatic; instead, it is typically a bonus enhancement, of sorts, in comparison to the primary results offered by a Mommy Makeover. Because of this, a more modified approach to your Mommy Makeover is required, and it is important to consult with Dr. Mendieta. A specialized Miami Makeover is a more personalized and signature take on the Mommy Makeover from Dr. Mendieta may be of better benefit when trying to remove the appearance of cellulite. 

What Other Cosmetic Treatments Can Get Rid of Cellulite?

To more directly address cellulite in the buttocks (one of the most common areas), patients may want to consider butt injections. By applying acute injections of Sculptra® Aesthetic, Dr. Mendieta can fill out the dimple areas of cellulite and make them plumper. In this way, patients can enjoy a more sculpted appearance of smooth, curvaceous contours in their bottom and enjoy the stimulation of new collagen production that may break up the fibrotic bands that create cellulite.
