Find out what exciting results may be possible for you with QWO and learn where this breakthrough injectable is meant to be used.

What is the main cause of cellulite?

Many people are under the impression that cellulite and weight gain go hand-in-hand. While being overweight certainly can increase a patient’s risk of developing cellulite, it is not the only risk factor for cellulite. In fact, patients of virtually any shape, size, or weight can develop cellulite, though it is more common in women. Cellulite, which is characterized by lumps, bumps, and dimpled skin, is technically caused by tight, fibrous septae. When these septae – which act as tethers between the skin and muscle – become too tight, fat cells bulge in the gaps between them and cause the unsightly appearance of cellulite. Most often, cellulite appears in the:

  • Buttocks
  • Thighs
  • Abdomen

What’s the best treatment for cellulite?

Knowing what causes cellulite is the first step in understanding why certain cellulite treatments are more likely to be effective than others. To visibly reduce the appearance of cellulite, the most effective treatments target fibrous septae between the muscle and skin. Some treatments are surgical and involve severing the bands manually, while others attempt to utilize certain forms of energy to loosen or soften the septae. At VIP Plastic Surgery, Dr. Khorsandi is proud to offer another treatment option, called QWO, that specifically addresses cellulite in the buttocks of women.

How does QWO work?

QWO is the only injectable treatment of its kind that reduces cellulite by enzymatically destroying the septae responsible for visible cellulite in the buttocks of women. During a QWO treatment, Dr. Khorsandi will strategically inject QWO into areas of rippling or dimpling. Over the course of several weeks or months, patients will notice smoother buttocks with less visible cellulite.

Can you use QWO in other places?

QWO is FDA approved specifically to treat cellulite in the buttocks of women. If you have concerns about cellulite in other areas, or if you are a man with cellulite, don’t hesitate to talk with Dr. Khorsandi about what alternative cellulite treatment options may be available for you.
