find out everything you need to know about surgical cellulite removal.

Dr. Gartner and his team at Gartner Plastic Surgery and Laser Center in New York offer various surgical and non-surgical cellulite removal treatments to help their patients achieve smoother and more youthful-looking skin.

Surgical cellulite removal procedures include:

  • Liposuction: This procedure involves the removal of excess fat from the affected area using a suction device. It can be performed under local or general anesthesia and is often used in combination with other procedures.
  • Cellulaze: This procedure uses a laser to target the underlying fat deposits and break them down, resulting in smoother skin. It also stimulates collagen production, which helps to strengthen the skin.
  • Subcision: This procedure involves the insertion of a needle beneath the skin to break up the fibrous bands that are causing the dimpling effect. It can be performed under local anesthesia and has a relatively short recovery time.

Surgical cellulite removal is a cosmetic procedure we offer that aims to reduce the appearance of cellulite on the skin through surgical means. Cellulite is a common condition that affects the skin, especially in women, and is caused by the accumulation of fat deposits beneath the skin, resulting in a dimpled or lumpy appearance.

Why Choose Us


Unlike other conventional cellulite treatments, our technology goes far deeper than the surface of your skin to target the actual abnormal structure and fat that cause your cellulite. This means that you’ll see the result of a far more effective treatment that normalizes and rejuvenates the treated area. Cellulase is an innovative, laser-assisted cellulite treatment that breaks the fibrous bands under the skin and melts the pockets of fat around them. Amazingly, it takes only a single treatment to achieve all of this. A study published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal[1] found that *a majority of patients achieved satisfaction from a single procedure*. All the patients questioned would also recommend the treatment to their friends.


You will have a personal, in-depth consultation with Dr. Gartner to ensure that this treatment is the best option for you. This is important because each patient is unique, with individual needs. We will always recommend the customized treatment which can achieve the best possible results for you.


You’ll only need one procedure which lasts just one or two hours, to obtain a visible improvement of your cellulite and your results will continue to visibly improve throughout a three to twelve-month period.


You will only need local anesthesia for your cellulite removal procedure which means you’ll experience less discomfort related to the effects of general anesthesia such as drowsiness, headache, or nausea. You’ll be able to walk out of our surgical facility after your treatment, unassisted. You can get back to your daily activities shortly after your procedure.


*You’ll experience a great improvement in skin elasticity and a substantial improvement in skin thickness, making your thighs appear smoother, firmer, and more resistant to cellulite development after your treatment.*


Unlike other surgical procedures, your minimally invasive cellulite removal treatment is associated with far less discomfort, bruising and swelling. Bruising and swelling are relatively minor post-procedure and can be controlled by wearing your compression garment as advised. While numbness in the treated areas is uncommon, if you do experience this it will resolve in the days and weeks following your treatment.


You may not notice an immediate improvement, but rest assured, you will see your treated areas become smoother and firmer over a few weeks. Sometimes, it can take six months to achieve optimal results from your surgery. To help accelerate this process, we recommend that you eat a well-balanced diet and exercise regularly. Healthy circulation keeps waste materials moving out of your system and aids in healing.


You’ll be able to return to desk work in a day or two.


You’ll be able to resume strenuous exercise in one to two weeks.


As you recover from your surgery, you’ll notice the treated area becomes smoother and firmer. the dimpled texture will be replaced with smoother, thicker-looking skin.


Dr. Gartner will meet with you in person for your initial consultation. During your private medical appointment, you’ll discuss your aesthetic concerns regarding your cellulite and what your aesthetic goals are. Please be honest, as it helps Dr. Gartner better understand your concerns and expectations. Coupled with a review of your medical history and proposed treatment areas, Dr. Gartner will then be able to determine whether cellulite treatment is suitable for you.

Are you bothered by the appearance of cellulite on your thighs and buttocks? If so, you’re not alone. While cellulite is not a problem with excess fat, it can still be stubborn and difficult to treat with diet and exercise alone. It’s a structural problem within the tissues, involving tight, fibrous bands that pull the skin down, making indents and small globules of fat that are trapped between them. Even having thin skin can make the dimpled appearance more obvious.
