What are cellulites?

Cellulite is the dimpled, wavy skin irregularity usually found in the upper leg, arms, stomach and buttocks.  It is predominately found in women.  Cellulite affects the vast majority of women, usually after puberty. Many believe cellulite to be a fat Cellulite Cellulaze Image webproblem that can be eliminated through diet and exercise. As you may have learned through experience, you can lessen the appearance of cellulites by losing weight, but you can’t get rid of it completely. And crash diets can actually make it worse.

Cellulite Grading Scale

The Nürnberger and Müller grading scale for cellulite is commonly used to grade cellulite. The scale has three separate stages.

  • Stage 1: Cellulite (dimpling) is visible when the skin is pinched (or alternatively when the underlying muscles are contracted).
  • Stage 2: Cellulite (dimpling) is visible while standing.
  • Stage 3: Cellulite (dimpling) is visible while lying down (supine).

As a general rule in plastic surgery, the more severe the deformity, the better the result after surgery. Accordingly, Cellulaze works best on severe cellulite, but long-term results have been demonstrated in the medical literature across all grades.

Cellulaze is FDA-approved and requires only minimal downtime. For targeted areas, the procedure can be performed in office using oral pain medication along with tumescent (liposuction type) infiltration anesthesia.

Seek consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon to determine if Cellulaze is right for you.

Cellulaze is the Answer!

The problem is not fat but the structure of the tissue that contains the fat underneath the skin.  There are three structural problems that cause the appearance of cellulite. First, the connective tissue bands beneath your skin surrounding fat cells can become short, tight and inflexible. Second, enlarged pockets of fat trapped by the rigid bands push up and herniate against skin causing the bulges. Finally, thin skin makes the appearance of cellulite even worse. This can result to several patterns of cellulite with either dimpling or waviness or a combination of them both.  These  fibrous structures below a women’s skin differs from that of men.  This is why men typically done have cellulite.  This explains why even very thin women can still have cellulite. Cellulaze in the first effective treatment for cellulite because it addresses all three structural elements that cause cellulite.



Cellulaze is the first cellulite treatment that attacks the structure of cellulite for clinically proven, longer-lasting results.

Creams, lotions, pills and many other cellulite treatments can only treat the appearance of cellulite not the cause that is why continuous use is needed.  While staying in shape through diet and exercise is always a good idea, no amount of sweating or starving will make a significant dent in your dimples. Why? Because cellulite isn’t a  fat problem. No, the problem lies beneath your skin where other treatments don’t reach.

But Cellulaze is different. It’s the first and only cellulite treatment that targets the actual structural problems underneath the skin, to give you proven, longer-lasting results from just one simple cellulite treatment.

The FDA-Approved Procedure:

Cellulaze, an FDA -approved device from Cynosure is the only treatment that attacks the structural problems beneath the skin that cause cellulite. A minimally invasive, laser-assisted procedure performed by Dr. Bridges, Cellulaze is a new anti-cellulite treatment clinically proven to increase your skin’s natural thickness for a smoother, healthier look that lasts. All from just one simple anti-cellulite treatment.

Cellulaze delivers results that last, and all it takes is a single anti-cellulite treatment.

The procedure:

  • Dr. Bridges will mark the areas of cellulite to be treated with a marker
  • Tiny incisions will be made, about the size of the tip of a pen
  • Local anesthesia or numbing solution is used (you’ll be awake during the procedure)
  • The Cellulaze laser fiber is threaded through a very small tube (or cannula) and inserted through the incision site
  • Your physician will use the SideLaze3D™ Cellulaze laser fiber to:
    • Level out bumps of fat
    • Treat dimples by releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin
    • Stimulate collagen production to increase your skin’s depth and elasticity for a smoother look
  • The liquefied fat is gently pressed out
  • The entire procedure should take about 2–3.5 hours

After the procedure you will be put in a compressive garment. The small incisions are left open to allow some drainage and quicker healing.  The pain is minimal and is well controlled with pain medications.  Antibiotics are taken for 5 days.  You may shower the next day. Bruising is not uncommon but it will resolve in a week or so. The swelling will subside in a week or two.  The results of the procedure are seen almost immediately but often take 6 months to reach its final contours and skin thickness.  The results are very long-lasting.  Current studies still show smooth results even after 4 years.  This is because the fibrous structure under the skin has been rearranged to not allow dimpling.  It is important to maintain your weight, but I have not seen any cellulite appear even with weight gain.

An Important Reminder!

The most important issue to understand is the fact that you have to be patient.  Cellulaze works incredibly well but the final skin tightening takes 6 months.  Typically, patients are happy with the results they see at 3 months but still wish there were more changes.  By the sixth month, patients are happy with the results because the final skin thickening and tightening has taken place.  So you have to be patient with the results.  The body heals at a rate it determines.
