What Is Cellulite?

               Avéli Treats It at the Source

Have you ever wondered what cellulite actually is? It has to do with fibrous bands called "septa," which attach your muscle fascia to your skin.

When the septa don't work as they should, they may shrink or yank at the skin. As a result, they reposition the surrounding fat, which can create a dimpled effect in the thighs and buttocks. Avéli releases precisely targeted septa bands to reverse this effect.

Has cellulite taken a toll on your confidence? Our Northshore doctors can greatly reduce the appearance of moderate to severe cellulite with Avéli, resulting in smoother, more youthful-looking buttock and thigh skin.

Why Choose Our Plastic Surgeons For Avéli Treatment?

What Contributes To Cellulite Formation?

As our knowledgeable New Orleans plastic surgeons tell patients, cellulite itself is not made of fat, but it is affected by the fat under your skin. This is why diet, exercise, or more invasive procedures like liposuction may not completely remove cellulite dimples.

There are three main factors that can cause cellulite dimples on a woman's body:

Subdermal Fat

Over time, the fat cells under your skin can grow larger and push up against the septa and skin of your backside.

Tissue Thickening

At the same time, the septa tissue can thicken, pulling the skin down. This causes the uneven dimples of cellulite.

Thinning Skin

As a woman gets older, her skin can get thinner. This makes changes caused by the above process more visible, leading to that unfavorable dimpled look.

Luckily, there is an FDA-cleared option to reduce the appearance of cellulite: Avéli. Whether you're unhappy with cellulite affecting your thighs, buttocks, or both, our plastic surgeons can assess your candidacy during a thorough consultation.

Cellulite Reduction Treatment
Is Popular Among Patients

I'm Interested in Avéli What Is the Treatment Like?

One of the best parts of Avéli treatment is that patients often just need an one hour-long appointment to experience a tangible reduction in cellulite. Once you've been approved for treatment at our New Orleans-area medical spa in Mandeville, LA, your plastic surgeon will make sure that you're comfortable using local anesthetic. After that, he will mark the treatment areas for the ultimate precision. He will also make a small opening in the skin to help him access the underlying treatment area.

Next, he will take our thin, needle-like Avéli device and move it under the skin. He will focus on the septa that cause your cellulite. Our device allows him to free those bands and diminish the appearance of dimpled cellulite.

How Long Do Avéli Results Last?


Though there is no permanent cure for cellulite, results from Avéli can last a year or longer.

Are There Side Effects From Avéli?

Doctor with a clipboard and Patient

You might experience some mild bruising or soreness, but these side effects will fade, usually in the first month. Overall, this treatment often results in an easy recovery process. You can expect to get back to your regular routine within a day or two of your treatment. We're also always here if you have questions, so please don't hesitate to reach out.

Financing Your Cellulite Treatment

Medical insurance does not cover cellulite treatment, as it is strictly a cosmetic procedure.

However, our doctors want you to be able to receive the cosmetic treatment you desire.

That's why we accept financing through CareCredit®. This trusted lender breaks down out-of-pocket costs into low-interest monthly payments that work with your budget. Contact our warm and friendly patient coordinator for more information.
