There’s nothing abnormal about having cellulite dimples around your thighs, buttocks, and other areas of your body. These divots in the skin are extremely common, and they don’t pose any medical issues. However, when cellulite starts to become more noticeable, it can make people feel insecure or embarrassed to expose their skin. If you’d like to be rid of those unsightly dimples and achieve smoother, more youthful-looking skin, Avéli cellulite treatment could be the perfect option.
What Should I Expect During the Procedure?
If you’re considering Avéli cellulite treatment, you can start by scheduling a consultation with Dr. James Anthony. He will discuss the procedure with you and ask questions to get a feel for your aesthetic goals. If you decide to move forward with the procedure, the doctor will work closely with you to devise a personalized treatment plan that fits your needs.
Avéli cellulite treatment is a simple procedure that can be performed right at our office. First, Dr. Anthony will administer local anesthesia to the treatment area to prevent significant discomfort. Next, he will make several tiny incisions around the targeted cellulite. He will then carefully insert the Avéli device beneath the skin and use its attached blade to sever the specific bands of connective tissue responsible for your cellulite. Once all of the targeted septa have been cut, the doctor will close the incisions and bandage the area. In total, Avéli cellulite treatment usually takes around an hour.
How Long Is the Recovery Time?
Most patients can return to their normal routines approximately 24 to 48 hours after undergoing Avéli cellulite treatment. You may experience some bruising, swelling, and tenderness, but these symptoms should gradually subside on their own.
