Cellulite Treatment in Philadelphia, PA
Cellulite is one of the most common problems among our female patients, affecting even very young women and those who are exceptionally fit.

What is Cellulite Treatment?
Many women are plagued with cellulite, which can leave the thighs and buttocks with a lumpy “cottage cheese” appearance. Although cellulite is often thought of as excess fat, it is actually normal fat that has started pressing on the connective tissues that surround it. This condition becomes even more pronounced in those with thin skin, which is why cellulite often becomes more visible as a person ages. However, even young women with small frames can still be affected by it, as fluctuations in hormones can make cellulite more prominent.
Here at Main Line Plastic Surgery, we offer the Cellulaze™ treatment for our patients who wish to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Cellulaze™ is an FDA-approved procedure that reduces the appearance of cellulite by releasing the fibrous bands that pull down on the skin and cause it to become dimpled. At the same time, it also stimulates collagen growth to make skin thicker so that cellulite is less visible.
Am I a Good Candidate for Cellulite Treatment?
People of all ages can have successful cellulite treatment as long as they are at or near their targeted weight and follow a healthy diet and lifestyle.
Planning your Cellulite Treatment
Since the Cellulaze™ procedure requires very little downtime, there is virtually no preplanning required. However, you should stop smoking and abstain from drinking alcohol during the two-week period leading up to your appointment.
How is Cellulite Treatment Performed?
You will receive an injection into your treated area in order to numb it. This will allow Dr. Jean to make a small incision to accommodate a tiny laser tube, which is then used to heat up your internal tissues. This has a three-fold effect of melting fat, releasing fibrous bands, and stimulating new collagen growth. Once the procedure is complete, Dr. Jean will simply bandage your wound, no stitches whatsoever are required!
