Hi Tilda , thank you for the question and I am sorry to hear what you are going through.
Unfortunately cellulite is difficult to treat as it is caused by the loss of strength of the connective fibres under the skin and fatty layer. Liposuction is contra-indicated for cellulite as it can make the appearance worse. Your best option would be to consult a plastic surgeon who can examine the area and discuss the various options available.
My advice would be to consider using the Velashape (www.syneron.com) which is specifically indicated in treating cellulite and will also help in reducing some of the extra fat around the thigh and love handle areas. Please contact Radiant Healthcare (011) 7948253 to find the closest doctor with the Velashape.
