This is a great article. I adored the she said, he said part of the article. It was really interesting to see an article written by a dermatologist AND plastic surgeon. I saw two different doctors for my cellulite problems - an ob-gyn and a family doctor. Neither of them really gave me any ideas on what I should do, probably because they were out of their realm. I'm glad I saw this article. I hope to see more articles like this!! Anyone know the contact info for Dr. Sonia Badreshia Bansal or Dr. Vivek Bansal?
