New York, NY (May 03, 2001) "The ultimate solution to cellulite might be modern gene therapy," says plastic surgeon Richard A. Mladick, MD, of Virginia Beach, VA, who moderates a panel on current concepts in managing cellulite at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), May 3-9, in New York.
Controversy continues concerning the efficacy of the many current treatments, none of which is a cure for cellulite. "Topical agents, packs, wraps, massage and ultrasound may give some temporary improvement, but nothing has provided consistent, long-lasting results," says Dr. Mladick.
The term "cellulite" refers to ordinary
fat deposits interlaced with fibrous tissue bands, giving cellulite its
dimpled appearance. Almost all women (and some men) have cellulite, stemming
from genetic predisposition, hormonal changes and weight gain.
