What Is Cellulite Reduction?
Cellulite is a depression of any shape or size with defined edges seen on the surface of the skin, typically on the buttocks or thighs. A major underlying cause of cellulite are the fibrous bands that tether your skin to the structures below. These bands are called septae. Some septa are good (and you want them as connective tethers), but others stiffen or shrink over time and lead to the dimples we see in the surface called cellulite. It's important to distinguish cellulite from other concerns like laxity or localized fat, which we can talk you through during a consultation in our Corona, CA office. You should also know that cellulite is not your fault (genetics and hormones play a role), and you are not alone - up to 90% of women have it! At The Plastics Doc, Dr. Samuel Salcedo provides nonsurgical cellulite reduction with FDA cleared Avéli™ for a visible improvement in the appearance of cellulite. Get in touch with our Corona, CA facility to set up an appointment and learn more info about the outstanding improvements you could obtain.

All of the staff was so kind and welcoming!! They went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and taken care of. Doctor Salcedo is truly an artist and took his time making sure I got exactly what I wanted and was educated on all my options. Client for life achieved!!!"- S.M. / Google / May 03, 2023
"Dr Salcedo & staff are all so awesome. Having my 18 year old breast implants removed & not replacing them was a scary decision at the time. I came in not knowing what to expect and not knowing how my body would look after. Having Dr Salcedo explain to me in detail of having the surgery & what to expect afterwards made me feel 100% confident & comfortable that I was making the right decision not only for myself but also choosing Dr Salcedo as my doctor. I’m at 3 weeks post-op and already loving the results. I’m looking forward to seeing my natural breast as the healing process continues. Thank You Dr Salcedo & Staff ❤️"- M.R. / Google / Apr 28, 2023

How Does Cellulite Reduction with Avéli Work?
Prior to the procedure, Dr. Salcedo will utilize a marker to distinguish the treatment areas (laxity versus cellulite). Following this, localized anesthesia will be used to numb the area being improved, and then the very small Avéli device will be introduced into the skin. Avéli allows for a high degree of precision and verification that fibrous bands are completely released, resulting in a noticeable difference.This procedure can typically be completed in under an hour. In most instances, patients should have the ability to return to their normal schedule one day after the procedure.

Avéli cellulite reduction results should be visible once swelling and bruising subsides. By one-month post-procedure you should start to see the effects of the procedure.
