Women searching for cellulite treatments to smooth stubborn dimples on the buttocks and thighs now have several options. Avéli sets itself apart by precisely targeting the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin’s surface, creating cellulite’s “cottage cheese” appearance. Dr. Camille Cash is one of the first plastic surgeons in the country to offer this cellulite treatment at her Houston practice.

One of the primary causes of cellulite is septa—fibrous bands that pull down on the skin and tether it to structures just below the skin’s surface. Avéli is a minimally invasive procedure cleared by the FDA to treat cellulite on the buttocks and thighs by severing the connective tissue bands.
Dr. Cash performs the procedure by sliding the handheld device just beneath the skin’s surface. She adjusts the depth of the device as needed, guided by a light at the end of the tool. As Dr. Cash moves the device and hooks the band, a blade attached to the tip of the rod severs the septa. What sets Avéli apart from similar devices is its precision, severing only bands that cause cellulite. Both the buttocks and thighs can be treated during a single appointment.
Does Avéli Reduce Fat?
Even though many people associate cellulite with being overweight, that’s not the case. Up to 90% of women have cellulite and many of them are at ideal weights. When the fibrous bands pull down on the skin, fat cells push up and create a dimpled appearance. Avéli, however, doesn’t treat the isolated fat pockets that are often in the areas where cellulite develops. It also doesn’t tighten loose skin.

Avéli creates smoother skin immediately, although you won’t be able to see the outcome until bruising and swelling subside. Something that sets Avéli apart from other cellullite treatments is that it produces results after a single treatment session.
Before beginning, Dr. Cash uses a local anesthetic to numb the treatment area and minimize discomfort during the hourlong procedure. There is no downtime after the treatment, but you can expect to feel sore. Bruising and swelling are the other primary side effects. Bruising is typically milder than seen with other minimally invasive cellulite treatments. During the first 24 to 48 hours after the treatment, you may also notice some clear or pink fluid leak from where the device pierces the skin.
Dr. Cash recommends waiting a few days before exercising or performing strenuous activities afer an Avéli treatment to allow your body to heal. You can expect to start seeing improvements to your skin’s texture within 1 month after treatment with full results appearing after 3 months.
