No wonder lipo is the number one invasive surgery for women over 40, even though it can run upward of $4,500. The procedure involves inserting a stainless-steel tube into fatty areas and “vacuuming”out 5 to 10 pounds of fat from between skin and muscles. Side effects include pain, numbness and possible lumps and bumps.
AT-HOME HERO: A seaweed-and-grapefruit gel Seaweed helps flush fat-packing toxins while grapefruit acts like a diuretic to pull out excess water to minimize dimples. “Both ingredients also have antioxidant properties that strengthen skin and maintain healthy collagen, so the legs and tush look more toned,” says Joshua Zeichner, M.D. Pick a cream with a massaging applicator (like Ahava Mineral Body Shaper Cellulite Control, $50 for 6.8 oz., Ahava.com) to increase circulation. Roll onto trouble spots twice a day for results in three weeks.
