Exercise is a great way to manage your weight and revitalize your body contours—but no matter how much you exercise, cellulite usually remains an ongoing problem. In this episode of the Dr’s TV show, we take a closer look at the causes of cellulite.
The outer layer of your skin is connected to the deeper tissues by collagen and elastin fibers. Over time, fat deposits build up and stretch these fibers, pushing them apart and causing the skin between them to develop a dimpled, lumpy appearance. Learn more about cellulite and what you can do about it by watching this video.
Just because you have cellulite does not mean you have to live with it. Call Mesna Plastic Surgery at (952) 927-4556 or visit our website for more information on the Cellulaze procedure.

Diet, exercise, and liposuction are all excellent ways to reduce fat, but none of these methods can eliminate stubborn cellulite, which is caused by fibrous bands just beneath the skin surface. The dimpling effects of cellulite can be reduced with the revolutionary Cellulaze procedure, which is the only therapy of its type which is capable of these results.
In this video, you will see an animation of Cellulaze’s heat technology that breaks up fibrous bands through a tiny incision in the skin. Over time, the skin will become smoother and tighter. A single session with Cellulaze can dramatically reduce the appearance of cellulite.

You eat a healthy diet and exercise on a regular basis—but no matter what you do, you just can’t seem to reduce the appearance of your cellulite. Instead of trying to hide your cellulite or spending money on expensive creams that only work on the surface of your skin, you might consider undergoing Cellulaze treatment. Continue reading to get the answers to some of the most frequently asked questions about Cellulaze.
What is Cellulaze?
Cellulaze is an innovative, minimally invasive procedure designed to significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite using laser energy. Unlike other treatment methods, Cellulaze is supported by two years of clinical research and is not associated with long periods of downtime.
Who Is a Good Candidate?
Ideal candidates for the Cellulaze procedure include individuals who are in good general health with realistic expectations regarding the results. However, Cellulaze is not an alternative to weight loss, and is therefore usually recommended for individuals near their goal weight with mild-to-moderate cellulite on the thighs.
How Does It Work?
After numbing the area with local anesthetic, your surgeon will create a small incision in the skin in order to insert a thin hollow tube or cannula. The Cynosure SideLight laser fiber is then inserted to deliver laser energy directly under the skin, heating the fat cells and releasing the fibrous bands that pull down and create the appearance of lumpy, dimpled pockets of skin.
How Long Do the Results Last?
Cellulaze treatments improve the look of your skin immediately following treatment, with optimal results becoming apparent approximately three to six months after new collagen cells have formed beneath the skin. Studies also show that the results may last up to one year or more when maintained through proper diet and exercise.

People who struggle with cellulite have long turned to expensive over-the-counter creams and lotions to reduce the appearance of cellulite. Now, there’s a better solution. Cellulaze, which was recently featured on The Doctor’s TV show, offers long-lasting results in just one treatment session. This minimally invasive cosmetic procedure targets the underlying structure of cellulite, rather than just treating the surface of the skin.
You can learn more about this new FDA-approved treatment by watching this video. You’ll see a cosmetic surgeon perform the procedure and hear her explanation of how Cellulaze works. You will also see some impressive “before” and “after” photos.

A tummy tuck is a cosmetic surgery procedure that produces a firmer, flatter stomach. Tummy tucks are usually performed under general anesthesia and most patients will take a week or two off from work after the procedure. Driving is not recommended for one to two weeks following surgery or until you are no longer requiring pain medication. Tummy tucks address excess skin and fat in the stomach region. In many cases, the procedure also removes many of the stretch marks in the area. If you are a woman, it may be best to wait until you are done having children before you have a tummy tuck. If you have more limited fat deposits around your stomach, waist, arms, or thighs, other procedures such as CoolSculpting or liposuction may be effective a tummy tuck.
Is a tummy tuck the right cosmetic procedure for you? Contact Dr. Gregory Mesna of Mesna Plastic Surgery by calling (952) 927-4556 to schedule a consultation. Visit us on the web to take a look at our current special offers.
