I wont get lipo if it means cottage cheese thighs afterwards. Should i be concerned about cellulite will result from lipo surgery?

A: Liposuction does not cause cellulite

Liposuction does not cause cellulite. However, patients can develop contour irregularities in their skin after liposuction if their skin does not have good elasticity. The success of liposuction depends on the quality of the overlying skin in the treated area. This means that if you do not have stretch marks or loose skin and your skin has good tone, then likely you will be a candidate for liposuction. If however you do have cellulite and loose skin, liposuction can worsen your condition. There are no good cures for cellulite at this time, despite the many different techniques available which attempt to treat it (laser, ultrasound, endermologie, etc.).

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon prior to scheduling a liposuction procedure.
