What is cellulite?

Cellulite is caused by several different factors. As the skin thins and the connective bands binding the underlying skin structures to the surface begin to tighten and pull downward, fat becomes trapped in between, resulting in a dimpled skin appearance. The built-up tension in these fibrous bands must be released in order to smooth the skin.

What is Avéli?

Avéli is an innovative solution for cellulite that is taking the aesthetic world by storm. The system works by inserting a specialized device under the skin through small incisions. Your provider can then sever the connective bands using a blade designed for this purpose. Our procedure for Avéli in Austin is one-time and allows for ultimate precision and minimal side effects. At Austin Plastic Surgery Institute, we combine this treatment with MorpheusBody to help give further tightening. This also can help those who have stretch marks. The Aveli is a one-time procedure, but it will take a few treatments with the MorpheusBody to see improvement in the stretch marks.

What can I expect from the Avéli treatment process?

Our Avéli in Austin treatment can be performed under local anesthesia, and the treatment time is typically one hour. It can also be added on to those having body contouring procedures like tummy tuck and liposuction. Patients may experience swelling, redness, bruising and soreness afterward. These side effects fade in the coming weeks, revealing your newly contoured physique. Full results are typically seen at the one-month mark.

Am I an ideal candidate for cellulite reduction?

Good candidates for Avéli are healthy non-smokers who have already exhausted conventional body sculpting methods, such as dieting and exercise, with few positive results. They should have no uncontrolled medical concerns that might interfere with their treatment and have realistic, positive outlooks toward their results. For patients dealing with excess skin and fat in addition to cellulite, our team can suggest a combination approach that includes multiple aesthetic options.

As mentioned earlier, patients may experience minor bruising, swelling, and tenderness after their treatment, especially when sitting down. Swelling may take up to one month to completely disappear. Most normal activities can be resumed immediately following your session, however, making Avéli ideal for busy, active individuals who don’t want a lengthy downtime. Strenuous exercise and lower body workouts should be avoided for 10-14 days. A compression garment may be recommended to reduce swelling and help keep your new shapelier contours intact.

How soon will I see my results?

As swelling dies down, your newly contoured buttocks and thighs will appear more toned, youthful, and inviting. It may take a full month for all residual swelling to subside. It is important that you maintain a healthy, stable weight after Avéli in order to reap the maximum benefits. By thoroughly following our team’s aftercare advice regarding avoiding exercise and exposure to the sun’s harmful UV rays, you can ensure the longevity of your outcome.
