Cellulite DocTalk with Dr. Grant Stevens and Dr. Michelle Spring.

For women who have ever struggled with stubborn cellulite, a free, live doctor video chat on Wednesday, October 17 will provide critical information about various procedures that help to reduce the unwanted dimples and contour irregularities. Hosts Dr. Grant Stevens and Dr. Michelle Spring, both plastic surgery experts and board-certified doctors at Marina Plastic Surgery in Marina Del Rey, CA, will share various procedure options, how they work, risks, average cost, satisfaction rates and more. During the live chat, brought to you by RealSelf.com and sponsored by Cynosure, participants will get firsthand insight about the different procedures that target cellulite, including the hottest new treatment on the market, Cellulaze. The video chat takes place at 5:15 p.m. PST and participants can register at http://www.realself.com/doctalk/cellulite.

Cellulite affects approximately 85 percent* of women in the U.S. Many are unaware that cellulite is not exclusively a fat problem; it’s a structural problem below the skin and no amount of dieting, healthy eating or exercising can get rid of it. In addition, aging, hormones, genetics and dramatic weight changes can all play a role in the appearance of cellulite. Anybody who has questions about cellulite and the procedures that help get rid of it can ask Dr. Stevens and Dr. Spring for real-time answers during a Q&A at the end.

On RealSelf.com, Cellulaze – a minimally-invasive surgical device designed to reduce cellulite by restoring the normal structure of the skin and underlying connective tissue – gets an 84 percent “Worth It Rating” by the community and has a reported average cost of $5,500. So far in 2012, there have been more than one million searches on the topic, and curiosity continues to grow.

There are countless treatments that claim to get rid of cellulite such as creams and lotions, but these only treat cellulite superficially by working at the skin's surface and results are often inconsistent. If you have ever considered a longer lasting treatment to reduce cellulite, this is an informative session not to be missed! To participate, attendees are encouraged to register in advance at http://www.realself.com/doctalk/cellulite for this FREE online doctor chat and get the information needed to make a confident, empowered decision.
