Cellulite affects a significant proportion of women, with estimates suggesting that up to 90% of adult women have this condition and find it bothersome. Dr. Rapaport and his team offer Aveli™ treatments that can safely and effectively reduce the appearance of cellulite after just one treatment.
Aveli™ is an advanced treatment that targets and releases the fibrous bands that cause cellulite. The treatment typically requires only two to four small incisions to target all of the cellulite dimples in the treatment area, and the incision is hidden in the crease under the buttocks or over an existing scar or stretch mark. The Aveli™ device allows surgeons to manually cut the septa and release the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin's surface, leading to visible, long-lasting improvements in skin smoothness while decreasing the appearance of cellulite.
Including the time for the local anesthesia, the entire in-office procedure takes approximately one hour. If you are treating multiple spots of cellulite, it may take up to 2 hours.
Once you are comfortably situated and your surgeon makes an incision, the Aveli™ device will be inserted under the skin, and the surgeon will deploy a small hook from the device. The hook when pulled will show the dimple/cellulite area strongly on the skin surface.
Next, a retractable blade will be used to carefully cut the septa, releasing the dimpling within the skin. The surgeon will then go back to the same area with the hook to obtain immediate confirmation that they have successfully released the targeted dimple or line.
Some of the benefits of Aveli™ include:
Aveli™ allows your surgeon to have the most precision possible when targeting the fibrous bands that cause cellulite. For this reason, it is the most advanced cellulite reduction technology on the market today.
Aveli™ is FDA-cleared for the treatment of cellulite on the buttocks and thighs, is minimally invasive, and requires no general anesthesia, leading to minimal downtime. Patients may experience mild pain and discomfort, as well as bruising and tenderness to the touch, for a short time after treatment.
Dr. Rapaport's team of board-certified plastic surgeons has extensive knowledge and experience in body contouring and cellulite reduction. After just one treatment with Aveli™, you can expect a significant lasting reduction in the appearance of your cellulite.
