Avéli™ Cellulite Treatment in El Paso, TX

Cellulite refers to the troublesome skin dimpling caused by a unique accumulation of fat typically appearing around the buttocks and thighs. Cellulite is so common that the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery reports that around 85% of women develop this condition during their lifetimes.

Dr. Frank Agullo is the first to offer Avéli™ at his El Paso, Texas, plastic surgery practice. Avéli™ is the most advanced and long-lasting cellulite treatment available today.

How Is the Avéli™ Procedure Performed?

Cellulite is created when fat forms under the skin, and collagen fibers (septa bands) that connect the skin to underlying tissue separate this fat into multiple small pockets, creating dimples. Cellulite becomes more noticeable with age as skin loses elasticity and gets thinner.

Avéli™ targets the connective bands responsible for cellulite and precisely cuts them, freeing the fat trapped within.

A local anesthetic is administered to the treatment area(s) to ensure you remain comfortable throughout the procedure. When the site is completely numbed, Dr. Agullo inserts the Avéli™ device through small incisions in the skin and guides it to the tissue bands, releasing them one by one.

Treatment time for Avéli™ may vary but is usually completed in about an hour.

What Are Your Concerns?

What Is Recovery Like After Avéli™ Treatment?

You can return to work or your regular routine immediately after treatment. However, you should avoid lower body workouts, including jogging and running, for up to two weeks, as instructed by Dr. Agullo.

You may experience mild discomfort and tenderness for the first 24 hours following treatment, along with swelling and bruising that typically disappears within 30 days. Firm-feeling spots under the skin sometimes develop but are not usually painful or visible and should resolve within a month or two.

Don’t be alarmed if the tiny incisions made during the procedure leak clear or pink fluid, as this sometimes occurs. When this happens, it should only last for 24 to 48 hours.

How Long Will It Take to See My Results?

After the swelling subsides, you should see gradual improvement and clear results visible within 30 days, with final results appearing in three months.

Is Avéli™ Cellulite Treatment Painful?

Because a local anesthetic is administered, you should not feel any discomfort during your Avéli™ treatment, though the treated area may be sore when the numbing effects wear off.
