Many people who discover cellulite want it gone immediately and will do almost anything to make that happen – even through invasive measures. However, invasive or minimally invasive treatments aren’t always the best way to go, and here are a few reasons why;


Many of the invasive treatments in the UK, depending on where you go, can be incredibly expensive. Liposuction on average will cost you between £2,000 and £6,000. Anti-cellulite injections don’t come cheap either. As a severe cellulite treatment, they can cost anywhere from hundreds of pounds to several thousand, especially if you need more than one round of injections.


I think it goes without saying that sticking a big needle into your rear and filling it with collagen (or caffeine, or polylactic acid or whatever they’re pumping into you) or sticking in a hose and sucking out fat will be painful. And don’t even think about sitting down comfortably for a while.

Recovery Time

If you are undergoing intense liposuction, which may require general anaesthesia, it will involve some recovery time and could possibly put you out of action for a few days. Any invasive, or even minimally invasive procedure, will take its toll on your body.


With any surgery there comes the risk of complications. Liposuction, as an elective procedure, may not be worth the risk. Infections, reactions to the anaesthetic, fat embolisms breaking away and getting trapped in your blood vessels and even kidney and heart problems due to shifts in fluid levels are just a few of the listed risks for liposuction.
