'Real Housewife' Battles Cellulite at Los Angeles Cosmetic Surgery Practice


Jeanna Keough, one of the Real Housewives of Orange County, recently had SmoothShapes® cellulite treatment from a Los Angeles cosmetic surgery practice overseen by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Grant Stevens. This new technology finally offers relief for the millions of women living with cellulite.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 21, 2009 -- Jeanna Keough, a star of the hit TV series Real Housewives of Orange County, is used to being in the spotlight. And as a former Playboy Playmate, she's used to having a beautiful body - but over time, the dimpled, cottage cheese appearance of cellulite had her feeling self conscious about her image on TV and in pictures. That's why Jeanna recently turned to a Los Angeles cosmetic surgery practice, Marina Plastic Surgery Associates (http://www.marinaplasticsurgery.com), for treatments with the revolutionary new SmoothShapes? cellulite reduction technology.

"It's been just a few weeks since her treatments were completed, and Jeanna is extremely pleased with her results," says Dr. Grant Stevens, Medical Director of Marina Plastic Surgery Associates in Marina del Rey. "She's gotten rid of the dimples and she feels confident showing off her smoother skin. She believes in these treatments enough to go out and share her experience, and I think that says a lot about what a difference it is in her life to feel more confident in her body. An upcoming episode of Real Housewives and issue of People magazine both will feature Jeanna talking about her SmoothShapes treatments at Marina Plastic Surgery."

It is estimated that between 85-95% of American women have some degree of cellulite, which commonly appears on the hips, thighs and buttocks. Women spend millions of dollars each year on cellulite creams and herbal treatments that claim lasting, noticeable results, but the fact is that until now there was no effective treatment for women who want to say goodbye to cellulite. That's changed with the introduction of SmoothShapes, a cellulite treatment in Los Angeles that uses a proprietary combination of laser and light technology along with mechanical massage and vacuum pressure to help improve the appearance of cellulite over a series of noninvasive treatments.

"At Marina Plastic Surgery Associates, we're proud to be the first practice in all of Los Angeles to offer cellulite reduction with SmoothShapes," says Dr. Stevens. "In fact, we are one of the select practices across Southern California to perform these treatments, which is why Jeanna felt it was worth the drive to achieve a remarkably smoother body contour. Unlike a lot of the other cellulite treatments that make far-fetched claims and ultimately disappoint, the technology behind SmoothShapes is grounded in 7 years of intensive research. After seeing the clinical results, I knew I had to add this treatment to the full menu of cosmetic enhancements already offered at Marina Plastic Surgery Associates."

The makers of SmoothShapes, Elem? Medical, also have a new solution for Los Angeles liposuction patients searching for a minimally-invasive procedure that actually creates a slimmer body shape. Called SmoothLipo?, this approach offers a faster recovery and improved skin tightening compared to traditional liposuction procedures.

"SmoothLipo is ideal for women who want those slimmer hips or a tighter tummy," adds Dr. Stevens. "It's not intended for larger-scale liposuction, but I've seen significant improvements in smaller pockets of fat. For women like Jeanna seeking fat or cellulite reduction specialists in Southern California, SmoothShapes and SmoothLipo offer real, effective solutions."

Marina Plastic Surgery (http://www.marinaplasticsurgery.com) offers a full selection of high quality Los Angeles cosmetic surgery and reconstructive procedures for the body, breasts, and face. Before becoming Medical Director of the practice, Dr. Grant Stevens graduated from Washington University Medical School in St. Louis. He trained through residencies in General as well as Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and he is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. In addition to belonging to several top professional societies and organizations, Dr. Stevens was recently recognized as one of America's Best Plastic Surgeons in "The Guide to Top Doctors."
