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.
"Iam in my mid 40's and a mother of one child. I have a very demanding and active job in the medical field. I see woman of all ages complain of the way they look and how their bodies have changed with age, pregnancies and yo- yo dieting. Well I'm one of those women!! Although having one pregnancy it definitely was enough to change my body. I was left with excessive loose skin. Later adding three laparoscopic surgeries, and years of weight loss and weight gain. My tummy became a train wreck!! After years of contemplating surgery I decided it was now time to get my body back. I choose Dr. Mizgala because of her outstanding reputation as a surgeon. I have seen some of her work and talked with patients about their experience and knew she was the Dr. of choice for me. Iam now three months post surgery and feeling wonderful!! I love my new tummy and belly button. I put on a bikini for the first time in over twenty years. My confidence level is higher than it has been in years. For anyone contemplating surgery dont put it off. For me it was a life changing experience."- S. / Google / Aug 07, 2019
"Very Happy with my New Chin! - I'd been wanting this procedure for awhile. The doctor and staff were lovely and it really didn't hurt. There was some lumpiness I had to adjust to as my body healed, but I wore the compression garment as much as possible and used a lot of arnica for bruising/swelling. I'm very happy with the results and so glad I did it."- J. / RealSelf / Dec 03, 2019
"Without a doubt the best doctor I’ve ever had. Dr. Mizgala is a magician who made my flabby stomach washboard flat, and made an ugly C-section scar disappear. She is an absolutely brilliant surgeon, and her sincere interest in and concern for her patients was clear throughout my time with her. All my questions and concerns were personally and fully answered in a way I could understand and that put me at ease. I would trust her to do any surgery or procedure without a doubt. There should be a 10 star rating available - she earned it."- J. / Google / Nov 27, 2019

"Super delighted with Dr Mitzgala! This is not my first rodeo and the gentle care and personalized attention I received from her and her staff went beyond what I expected. I received a call from the doctor herself the day after my procedure, which happened to be on a Saturday. She provided my family with a way to contact her or her staff and all of the tools they needed to be sure I was comfortable at home. I had Vaser Lipo of hips inner/ outer thigh with renuvion to help with some loose skin. My initial visit (and all)was very thorough, she was honest about results and what would be the best approach for me. Not to mention the results are phenomenal. I was able to return to work within a few days which she knew was important to me. My procedure was tailored to my needs and the staffs amazing service extended into my follow up care. 6 weeks out and I’ve had the best experience. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr Mitzgala and I would certainly chose her if needed in the future."- M.P. / Google / Nov 13, 2019
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?
The cost of your treatment will be dependent on the size of the area and the number of locations being treated. During your private consult, our licensed aesthetician, Robin Brock, can go over the cost of your recommended treatment. We accept many forms of payment and can help you find medical financing.
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.
