What a Cellulite removal surgery can do for you
You can permanently smooth your thighs and buttocks and remove that stubborn, unsightly “orange peel” look. Cellulite is not actually a problem with fat, which is why it cannot be treated with diet and exercise. It is a structural problem within the tissues involving tight, fibrous bands which pull the skin down, making indents, and small globules of fat which are trapped between these. Having thin skin makes the dimpled appearance more obvious. When fibrous bands connected under the skin tighten, the fat deposits will bulge, creating a dimpled skin surface.
You can experience the only minimally invasive treatment for cellulite, performed by double board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Gartner, conveniently located in vibrant, New York. With his extensive training and expertise, Dr. Gartner has been able to specialize in helping our patients eliminate cellulite with a single, minimally invasive surgical procedure. Imagine how great you’ll feel with smoother, sexier thighs!
You Can Expect
- The advanced treatment that will smooth away unwanted dimpling or “orange peel” skin on your thighs.
- *Reduce contour irregularities following liposuction.*
- A comfortable procedure which is administered under local anesthesia, so you can drive home immediately after and avoid some of the risks and considerations which accompany general anesthesia.
- You’ll enjoy the ability to get back to work in a day or two.
- The freedom of wearing shorts, skirts and bathing suits to show off your smoother, firmer thighs. Your wardrobe might need an upgrade!
Surgical Cellulite Removal
No matter how thin a person may be, how much they exercise or watch what they eat, they may still have cellulite.
What makes your cellulite removal treatment at Gartner Plastic Surgery unique?
Unlike other conventional cellulite treatments, our technology goes far deeper than the surface of your skin to target the actual abnormal structure and fat which cause your cellulite. This means that you’ll see the result of a far more effective treatment which actually normalizes and rejuvenates the treated area. Cellulaze is an innovative, laser-assisted cellulite treatment which 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 found that *a majority of patients achieved satisfaction from a single procedure*. All the patients questioned would also recommend the treatment to their friends.
Personal Consultation with Dr. Gartner
You will have a personal, in-depth consultation with Dr. Gartner in order 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, in order to obtain a visible improvement of your cellulite and your results will continue to visibly improve over the course of 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. In fact, 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.
Resistant to Cellulite Development
*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.*
Are You A Candidate For Cellulite Removal Surgery?
Cellulite is more than just fat—it’s an abnormal structure of the fat, fibrous tissue and trapped toxins located underneath the surface of your skin.
Are you a candidate?
Cellulite removal treatment with Cellulaze is a procedure which is suitable for anyone who has mild to moderate cellulite on their thighs. You should be in generally good health and not significantly overweight. Ideal candidates are non-smokers.
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 and frank, 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.

Your surgery will be performed at our state-of-the-art surgical facility. Our facility is fully accredited by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities (AAAASF). AAAASF medicare certification is considered the gold standard in accreditation and one of the highest certifications any ambulatory center can obtain in the country.
How to prepare for your cellulite removal treatment
Although your treatment is minimally invasive, it is still considered surgery. Therefore, it’s best that you follow the preparation guidelines outlined for you by Dr. Gartner. Your preparation includes things which will help improve your experience and allow for optimal results to appear more rapidly. Instructions include avoiding specific medications and supplements which may lead to bruising or bleeding.
Cellulaze cellulite treatment takes one to two hours and is performed at our state-of-the-art surgical facility by a double board certified Plastic surgeon.
- The areas to be treated will be carefully marked by Dr. Gartner.
- Local anesthesia is administered. Most people do not find this significantly uncomfortable and local anesthetic works effectively to eliminate discomfort from the procedure.
- Tiny incisions are made in the area, each measuring only a millimeter or so.
- A flexible, microcannula with a laser fiber is inserted through an incision and gently moved around to melt the trapped fat, break up abnormally structured fibrous tissue and stimulating collagen production.
- The liquefied fat is released through the incisions or naturally metabolized by your body as waste matter.
- The incisions are closed and dressed.
Congratulations, within a few months you’ll be able to see the results of your cellulite removal surgery! All you have to do is to follow the post-surgery care instructions provided to you by Dr. Gartner and wait for your breasts to settle.
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.
How you'll look while you recover
You may not notice an immediate improvement, but rest assured, you will see your treated areas become smoother and firmer over the course of 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.
When you can go back to work
You’ll be able to return to desk work in a day or two.
When may you return to the gym?
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.
