Avéli cellulite treatment is an FDA-approved cellulite treatment that can erase cellulite dimples for smoother, more even-looking skin, especially on the buttocks and thighs. Let’s take a look at the innovative technology accompanying this new treatment and how it can benefit you.
What Is Avéli?
Just take a look at Avéli cellulite treatment before and after photos and you’ll see the immediate difference this treatment can achieve in getting rid of cellulite for patients.
This minimally invasive treatment works in the following way:
First, your plastic surgeon will mark your skin where you have cellulite, marking the most notable dimples. This is usually done on the buttocks and hip area where cellulite is most prevalent.
Next, you will be taken to the operating room where local anesthetic will be administered for your comfort. Several small incisions need to be made so that the Avéli™ Precision Cellulite Release Device can be inserted. Incisions will be made strategically close to the target treatment area.
The Avéli™ Precision Cellulite Release Device is a long thin instrument, so the incisions do not need to be large. There is a light at the end of the device as well as a small blade that can be extended as needed when the surgeon is ready to use it.
Cellulite occurs when subdermal connective tissue bands pull down and anchor the skin’s surface, causing an indentation. Cutting or releasing these bands is the key to getting rid of cellulite dimples.
Your surgeon will insert the Avéli™ Precision Cellulite Release Device into one of the incisions and use the light (which can be seen through the skin) to maneuver the device close to one of the target dimples. Once they are in position, your surgeon will deploy the blade at the end of the device and cut and release the subdermal connective tissue bands creating the dimples. The smoother skin without dimpling can be seen immediately.
Good Candidates for Avéli Treatment
The best candidates are in good health and have minimal skin laxity on their target treatment areas, but visible cellulite dimples. If you have localized fat where you develop cellulite, sometimes, losing fat through diet and exercise can also improve cellulite. However, liposuction may also be used, and some patients will have cellulite on their skin surface no matter what.
What Ever Happened to Qwo?
Qwo cellulite treatment was an injectable cellulite treatment that was recently discontinued. It was one of the main cellulite treatment options available. In fact, for a long time, several cellulite treatments were available but had varying degrees of success.
Qwo is probably the best known of these treatments. Some thought it might finally be the one that could actually make a marked difference in the appearance of cellulite. It was FDA approved and was said to break down the collagen bands causing cellulite dimples by using special enzymes.
Unfortunately, the use of Qwo led to several unexpected side effects such as prolonged discoloration of the skin and longterm bruising. Endo, the original manufacturer, no longer produces or sells this product.
In large part, FDA approved Avéli has taken its place on the market. Avéli has proven extremely effective at getting rid of cellulite.
FAQ: Avéli Cellulite Treatment

What does Avéli cellulite treatment cost?
The cost of Avéli cellulite treatment will vary depending on where you undergo surgery, who your surgeon is, and the geographic location of your procedure. It will also depend on the size and scope of your treatment areas and whether you plan to undergo additional procedures such as liposuction. Be sure to schedule a consultation for an accurate price estimate.
Can Aveli cellulite treatment get rid of unwanted fat?
No. If you have both cellulite and excess fat that you would like to get rid of, you’ll need to undergo two different treatments to solve these aesthetic issues.
Avéli can certainly be used to treat cellulite, but you would also need liposuction, for example, to get rid of unwanted fat cells. In fact, Aveli cellulite treatment is commonly used alongside liposuction to produce a smoother, more attractive overall appearance in the target treatment area.
Can I get Aveli cellulite treatment if I have loose skin?
Skin laxity is an entirely different problem from cellulite. Sometimes, a patient will have both loose skin (skin laxity) as well as cellulite, but these two issues must be addressed separately.
You may certainly be able to undergo Avéli while undergoing surgery after weight loss or other treatments such as tummy tuck surgery or Brazilian butt lift surgery. However, just know that Aveli cellulite treatment treats cellulite and cellulite only.
Is Avéli treatment painful?
Local anesthesia is used prior to the procedure, so patients should not feel anything during their Avéli treatment. After surgery, moderate discomfort and light soreness is common. Other symptoms of recovery include swelling, bruising, and sometimes, clear or pink fluid leaking from incision sites for one to two days. Overall, these symptoms should subside quickly.
