As a physician, women confide in me all the time. Other than their closest friends, women tell their doctors’ things they wouldn’t tell anyone else. I don’t believe I break any confidence in writing here how emotionally and personally painful most women find cellulite. I don’t believe I violate any confidence when I repeat a statement made by a long-time patient of mine during the midst of a routine pap smear and breast exam.
“I have been your patient for 15 years and I’ve never felt embarrassed to have my annual exam in all those years. This year, I ask you to forgive me because I feel very embarrassed to have you see me as you do my annual exam. Over the past year my thighs and buttocks have been become riddled with cellulite. I can’t stand to see myself in the mirror. I look so awful that I am embarrassed to be seen. Some parts of my body look so bad it makes me cry. I can no longer wear a bathing suit, a mini skirt, short Bermuda shorts or any short dresses. I turn off the lights when my husband and I get intimate so he can’t see what I look like. Please, please, please, don’t judge me, I know I look awful but there seems to be nothing I can do about it. I guess I am getting old and my body is turning against me.”
My patient then cried tears of shame, desperation, helplessness and a bit of self-loathing. In truth, cellulite is so common that I would have hardly even noticed it if had she not brought it up, but instead, I started to cry with her. Cellulite can affect both men and women, but it is more common in females due to the different distribution of fat, muscle and connective tissue. In fact, 80-90% of women experience cellulite at some point in their lives. She cried for her lost youth, for her lost self-image and for her lost sense of beauty. I cried for an even worse reason, I was her physician and I had absolutely nothing to offer her. I had no help to give her. I had no meaningful treatment or words of comfort. I cried because I too also felt helpless.
That was more than 20 years ago. Finally, I have a solution! Now I can do something that would have helped her. I can reduce and even eliminate cellulite. This treatment has been so long in the making. This will be valuable for so many women and men to finally reduce and in many cases fully eliminate their unsightly cellulite.
I wish I could go back in time to help her, but I can’t. I can however, now effectively help the thousands of women whose self-image, self-confidence, sense of attractiveness and sense of self-value are being undermined by cellulite. I can help those who are going through what she went through. I can now even prevent cellulite from occurring once its earliest signs begin to appear. I can help women refined their youth, renew their smooth beautiful skin, revitalize their feelings of attractiveness and self-confidence.
If you are already suffering and already feeling even the earliest emotional pain, distress, doubt, insecurity, or no longer feel sexy, I can help you. If you feel abandoned or betrayed by your body, I can help. I can bring you and your body back together again. If you feel like you can no longer wear a bathing suit or any other clothing of your choice, I can help. If you are suffering or lost your joy for life, my staff and I at CV Advanced Wellness can help you.
