About Cellulite reduction
No matter how fit and thin you are, unfortunately, there is nothing you can do to prevent or remove cellulite on your own. The fibrous tissue forms under the skin, most commonly around the hips, thighs, and stomach, and creates a lumpy, dimpled appearance. Dr. Cynthia Mizgala, the medical director at A Woman Plastic Surgeon in Metairie, LA, is pleased to offer cellulite reduction with the noninvasive InMode BodyFX laser. This state-of-the-art procedure can improve the appearance of cellulite for both men and women. The noninvasive RF and suctioning technique can reveal a smoother, tighter body contour.

Cellulite treatment is safe and effective for many individuals. You should not have RF laser cellulite reduction if you are pregnant or taking blood thinners. The best candidates are in overall good health, at a stable weight, and have noticeable cellulite.
A Woman Plastic Surgeon utilizes the InMode BodyFX laser for all our cellulite reduction treatments. This system uses a combination of radiofrequency energy, and deep tissue heating and suctioning for smooth, natural-looking results. Treatments are extremely comfortable and are often compared to feeling like a relaxing hot stone massage. Generally, cellulite reduction takes about 15 – 20 minutes per treatment area.
What to Expect
Since BodyFX is a noninvasive approach to reducing cellulite, you are free to return to your daily routine immediately after treatment. This is a great benefit compared to a surgical procedure that may require downtime at a higher cost. Generally, 6 – 8 sessions spaced 1 week apart are required to achieve your desired result.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much does it cost?

What is cellulite?
Cellulite is the lumpy, dimpled flesh that usually appears on the thighs, hips, buttocks, and stomach. While cellulite is more common in women, it can also be found in men. The cause of cellulite is still unclear, but many doctors' theory is it is fat swollen with toxins to create ripples on the surface of the skin, which may be caused by genetics, thin skin, and aging. Cellulite can be found on thin and overweight bodies, and is often resistant to diet and exercise. While it is not considered a serious medical condition, it is considered undesirable and unattractive.
Length of treatments?
Treatment times will vary, depending on the number of areas being addressed, but most treatments take about 15 – 20 minutes. This means you can easily schedule appointments over your lunch break. You will typically need 6 – 8 sessions, spaced at least one week apart per treatment area, in order to see optimal results. Many patients compare the feeling of the cellulite treatment to a relaxing hot stone massage.
There is no downtime required. The area may look a little red and feel warm, but this should go away within 1 – 2 hours.
Probably the most noteworthy benefit regarding RF laser cellulite reduction is that over time, you will continue to see improved results. This is due to the advanced collagen growth that takes place under the skin.
