AvÉli™ Cellulite Treatment
Cellulite is a frustrating cosmetic concern that affects up to 90% of women, regardless of their body type or fitness level.1 While this condition is not harmful, cellulite dimples can cause considerable insecurity and may even negatively impact a person’s quality of life.2 For patients in NYC, New York, and Long Island who have tried in vain to reduce the appearance of cellulite with topical creams and other treatments that only work on the surface of the skin, we are pleased to offer Avéli cellulite treatment.
What Causes Cellulite?
While the exact cause of cellulite is unknown, experts believe that factors such as hormonal changes, genetics, skin texture, and lifestyle may contribute to this condition. Cellulite dimples are a result of tension in the tight fibrous bands that attach skin to the underlying muscle. This causes fat cells to push up against the skin, leading to the characteristic “cottage-cheese” or “orange peel” texture.3 Because the source of cellulite is underneath the skin but not related to muscle tone, neither topical creams nor exercise are effective in reducing the appearance of cellulite.
What is AvÉli?
Avéli is a transformative, FDA-approved cellulite treatment that stands out from conventional methods. Unlike surface treatments, Avéli targets the root cause of cellulite – the tight, fibrous bands (or septa) running vertically underneath the skin. By releasing these septa bands, Avéli offers an effective, lasting solution, ensuring smoother and rejuvenated skin with results often visible after a single session. Avéli cellulite treatment also stimulates collagen production, which improves the appearance and resilience of skin.

Mild Side Effects: The most common side effects of Avéli are temporary bruising and swelling
Preparing for Cellulite Treatment with Avéli
The only thing you need to do to prepare for your Avéli procedure is to schedule a consultation with an expert at New York Plastic Surgical Group. During this office visit, you will feel comfortable discussing your concerns and you will have the opportunity to ask questions about Avéli. Your provider will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan designed to help you meet your aesthetic goals.
The AvÉli Cellulite Treatment Experience
Before Avéli treatment begins, the treatment area will be numbed with a local anesthetic to ensure a comfortable experience. The small Avéli handheld device is inserted through a series of very small incisions, allowing precise navigation beneath the skin to locate and sever the septa responsible for the appearance of cellulite dimples. Patients report minimal discomfort during their Avéli treatment, though it is common to experience a gentle warming sensation.
AvÉli Recovery and Results
Cellulite treatment with Avéli involves severing connective tissue beneath the skin, so patients can expect to experience some bruising, tenderness or mild pain, and swelling post-treatment. However, most patients do not require any downtime after their treatment and are able quickly resume their normal activities. We recommend that patients avoid more strenuous activities such as exercise for at least two week.
