Dolores Catania's sassy, hide-nothing approach just got more intense—she shared her very real butt dimples with The Lookbook exclusively before undergoing a relatively new cellulite-busting procedure called Cellfina to prep for the upcoming Real Housewives of New Jersey reunion.
"I am so nervous about reunion. Everyone focuses on what you did, who you are wearing, and I f***cking hate working out. I like to eat, so that's why I'm getting it done," shared Dolores after her first consultion for the FDA-approved procedure that smooths and flattens the connective bands of fat below the skin's surface, an issue that most human women have to deal with. "I'm doing this for the same reason I had my Brazilian butt lift and face lift, because these are things that can't be fixed by working out. I hate it, but I know it's a necessity."
If you're wondering, no, liposuction won't fix cellulite, which is exactly why Dolores is heading to Dr. Jeremy Brauer, a dermatologist in New York City, this week to undergo the out-patient Cellfina procedure. (So, stay tuned for the results!)
"Liposuction doesn't take away cellulite, and this is the only thing proven to work, so I said 'I'm on it' because there's no cream or diet that smoothes the dimples. I've been in the fitness industry long enough to know what's going to work, and there's hardly any downtime wich is important for my hectic schedule. I just can't be laid up for my butt dimples. I am not a p****y. Let’s do what we need to do."
We feel that Dolores, we really do.
The procedure is said to be only mildly painful, but most docs use a ton of numbing agents and encourage patients to bring music for the full duration of the cellulite-conquering treatment. Dolores stressed to us that the temporary pain or discomfort of a beautifying treatment was nothing in comparison to the daily grind of peer pressure in the fitness industry where she works.
"When I was younger my Irish grandmother used to put really tight french braids in my hair and tell me beauty is pain, and she was right. My butt dimples are no different. I do not want women to think that women on TV are better than them. We are all the same. We all battle hormones, genetics, whatever."
