CELLULITE REDUCTION (Aveli) Introduction

Most women in the world experience the appearance of cellulite in their lower bodies. Cellulite is a condition of dimpled skin appearance caused by projections of fat cells that seep through inflexible septa bands, or the fibrous tissue that separates these fat pockets under the skin. Even though it can be hereditary, hormonal shifts, age, and sudden weight gain can make cellulite appearance worse, and can also appear in the bodies of lean men and women. Double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Li offers Cellulite Reduction in Los Gatos, CA via the Avéli treatment. Avéli is a new FDA-approved cellulite treatment that targets cellulite with a precise, minimally invasive, and fast out-patient procedure with low recovery time.

What is Cellulite Reduction (AVELI)?

Cellulite is not affected by diet and exercise as it is an effect of tight structures under the skin. These structures are tight bands that force fat pockets to push against the skin causing a dimpled appearance of the skin (cellulite). Cellulite Reduction treatments such as Avéli identify and precisely release the septa bands that lead to dimpling on the buttocks and thighs. A hand-held device is expertly guided between the skin and underlying muscle to seek and release these septa bands. Avéli ’s unique feedback mechanism sends tactile feedback indicating when the specific fibrous bands have indeed been severed. This is a game changer compared to other cellulite reduction treatments as it creates greater precision within a single session.

Cellulite Reduction First Step

What’s the first step?

The first step towards your Cellulite Reduction in San Jose and the Bay Area is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Eric Li at CA Aesthetics in Los Gatos. During this appointment, you can discuss your medical history, aesthetic goals, and concerns, allowing Dr. Li to evaluate your target area and discuss expectations, pros, and cons of the Avéli treatment. If he deems you are a suitable candidate, he will create a tailored treatment plan determining the extent and detail of the procedure.

Once the consultation is complete and the treatment plan is agreed upon, you can schedule your Cellulite Reduction appointment conveniently. Our team at CA Aesthetics are dedicated to providing flexible scheduling options, ensuring you can choose a date and time that works best for you as well as guiding you with payment options as well and sharing any pre and post-operative instructions to ensure a successful treatment.

What to expect on the day of Cellulite Reduction (AVELI) treatment

On the day of your Cellulite Reduction treatment, Dr. Eric Li and his medical staff will welcome you, set you up in the procedure room, and go over the treatment plan once again, marking all target areas. Local anesthesia will then be administered to the target area to make you comfortable for the duration of the treatment.

During the treatment, Dr. Li will insert the Avéli device underneath the skin, gently guiding it below cellulite dimples. The device senses the tight septa bands with its unique hook signaling to the surgeon by a gentle pull of the dimple downward. Once the tight septa band is hooked, a button is pressed to release a blade which cuts the band so it is immediately noticeable if the dimple has been released, or if another band must be located. Avéli ’s feedback mechanism and optimized operation allow for the entire target area to be treated in one single in-office visit. 

Cellulite Reduction (AVELI) recovery

There is little to no downtime required after an Avéli treatment. Since it is local anesthesia, patients can drive themselves back home after the procedure.

Dr. Li usually recommends refraining from strenuous activity for at least one week to allow for a reduction in swelling but the patients can resume daily activities within 24-48 hours. You might also be discharged with a compression garment to keep a hold on the swelling. It is recommended you wear that for at least a week after the procedure. 

Lastly, the incision points where the Avéli device was inserted might release some fluid and will take a week to ten days to close.
