Though cellulite is a harmless condition affecting up to 90% of women, many people find it aesthetically displeasing and are frustrated by its effect on their appearance.

Various factors contribute to cellulite, from genetics to hormones. It tends to be more visible with age or excess weight. Depending on the cause and severity of your cellulite, you may be able to reduce it with exercise, weight loss, and topical treatments that improve skin health. However, the only way to effectively treat cellulite is to address the sources.

Rapaport Plastic Surgery offers two effective treatments to target the root of cellulite. When fibrous bands called septa pull down on your skin at the same time as fat pushes up, dimpling occurs. We offer treatments with RESONIC™ and Aveli™ to release tension in the septa and reduce cellulite.


RESONIC™ represents a breakthrough in cellulite reduction, offering a non-invasive solution that is FDA-cleared. Utilizing cutting-edge Rapid Acoustic Pulse (RAP) technology, it harnesses the power of high-frequency sound waves to target and disrupt the septa, releasing tension. This innovative and gentle approach boasts minimal side effects and requires no downtime. Typically, patients need a series of sessions to achieve the best possible results.


This device allows your practitioner to sever the septa responsible for dimpling. Aveli™ stands out as a state-of-the-art device, unique for its unparalleled precision compared to alternative subcision techniques. A single Aveli™ treatment delivers noticeable results, requiring only local anesthesia and minimal downtime. Dr. Rapaport considers Aveli™ the most advanced technology for cellulite treatment available.
