Dimpled textured skin on your body, also known as cellulite, can be highly frustrating for individuals wishing to look toned and smooth. Although cellulite can’t be 100% corrected, It can be improved using minimally invasive technology. To learn more about cellulite reduction, continue reading and decide if this 5th Avenue Plastic Surgery procedure suits your aesthetic concerns and desires.

What is Cellulite Reduction? 

Cellulite commonly appears on the thighs and buttocks and is caused by fibrous bands called septae. These bands connect the skin to the underlying tissues. When irregularly tightened, they can pull causing dimpling to appear on the surface of the skin. Worsening of cellulite can be correlated with aging, genetics, obesity and weight changes. 


Recovery Time

1-2 Weeks

Type of Anesthesia

Local Anesthesia

Cellulite Reduction Candidates 

Ideal candidates for cellulite treatment include men or women who are uncomfortable with the appearance of the cellulite and the texture of their skin. Patients seeking intervention should be near their ideal body weight. Patients need to be in good overall health and understand that the treatment is meant to reduce the appearance of cellulite and not completely eliminate it. 

The Cellulite Reduction Treatment 

Based on the exam, our double-board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. D’Agostino, will determine the best technique to use in order to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Most treatment options are minimally invasive and are performed under local anesthesia. Before the procedure, local anesthesia is administered. Next, small incisions are made to insert a cannula and release the septa causing each dimple.

I knew two things were most important to me when looking for the right surgeon: the results and bedside manner. I feel so grateful to have hit the jackpot with Dr D who gave me the BEST of both of those. From the first moment I met her in the consult, I knew she was different from most doctors. She is incredibly kind, sweet, patient, and attentive. She made me feel cared for in a way that’s hard to put into words, but when you’re preparing for a big surgery, it’s the exact type of energy that puts you at total ease. Dr D not only answered all my questions, on multiple different occasions, leading up to surgery but she was extremely patient with them all. 

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino.

I am extremely pleased with Dr. D’Agostino. She is always on time, personable and kind! She walked me through every step of my procedure, removed all of my cancer and did an amazing job. My scar is barely noticeable at just a couple weeks after my procedure. I will definitely be back for any other cosmetic needs.
