24. If cellulite has to do with the menstrual cycle, how does this relate to women that have had a full hysterectomy and still has cellulite that continues to get worse?

A. The process will continue if you have ovaries or have excess weight. The estrogen will continue to be made by the ovaries or the fat cells, and continue to stimulate MMPs in ther fibroblasts, which are all over the body.

25. If using a theophylline product in body wraps, how long does wrap need to stay on and which type of wrap should be used?

A. I am not an advocate of wraps. Theophylline will work, but it may take 30-60 minutes to get any effective penetration of theophylline.

26. Is collagen structure effected when you have abdominoplasty?
