What Is Cellulite?
Although increased fat deposits and skin laxity contribute to cellulite, the major underlying cause is the growth of fibrous bands called septa. These septa pull down on the skin, creating the appearance of cellulite dimples. Numerous septa can attach to each dimple, complicating their removal. Because the septa have nothing to do with the fat, even significant weight loss doesn't affect their growth.
If excess fat or skin laxity is an issue, Dr. Basner can consult with you about your best treatment options.
What Is an Aveli Cellulite Treatment?
An Aveli cellulite treatment is a procedure that identifies and severs the septa around each cellulite dimple. This unique approach also allows Dr. Basner to verify the release of each dimple in real time. Aveli for cellulite is superior to other cellulite treatments because it is:
- Minimally invasive
- Safe and effective
The Aveli procedure also requires just a single treatment visit to deliver visible, meaningful results. Another advantage is its relatively short recovery period.
Who Is an Optimal Aveli Patient?
Most patients who undergo an Aveli cellulite treatment are between 25 and 45. To be a candidate for the procedure, you should be in good health and have realistic expectations. You also should not have had liposuction in the targeted areas.
What to Expect During an Aveli Cellulite Treatment
Before an Aveli cellulite treatment begins, you'll receive anesthesia. Then the doctor will insert the handheld Aveli device into small incisions in the targeted area, usually in the buttocks and thighs. The cellulite device is equipped with a small light and a hook that releases a knife to cut each septa. Dr. Basner will verify as each of the connective tissue bands is cut for precise, predictable results.
We will wrap the treated areas with absorbent dressing, cushioned pads and tight compression leggings to facilitate your recovery. The entire process takes about an hour.
You can usually drive yourself home after your Aveli cellulite treatment.
Recovering From an Aveli Cellulite Treatment
Most patients report moderate discomfort lasting a few days and mild discomfort for up to two weeks after an Aveli cellulite treatment. There will also be post-procedure bruising and swelling, which will subside after a month or so. You can resume light physical activity almost immediately but should hold off on vigorous lower body exercise for 10 to 14 days.
For the first 30 days, avoid exposing the treated areas to the sun and make sure to use a high-SPF sunscreen.
You should begin seeing results from your Aveli procedure within four weeks. The full effects should be visible in 90 days.
