Cellulite treatments are logically the most popular topics during bathing suit weather and weeding out the best cellulite treatments from the less effective treatments can be somewhat difficult. Especially since most false claims to be the best cellulite treatments. 

On April 10th, 2012, Dr. Bruce Katz was featured on The Today Show with introduction to the newly approved Cynosure™ laser Cellulaze cellulite treatment. No long term results beyond two years were cited and the jury is still out in regards to whether it is worth the cost. FDA approval for this cellulite treatment does not equate to whether a device is effective or totally safe. Cellulaze utilizes a YAG 1440 nm pulsed laser which allegedly interrupts the septal fibers which attach the skin to the fascia while melting the fat and tightening the skin. (What is cellulite and what causes cellulite?) The treatment is performed under local anesthesia and the cost is approximately $2500 per site ($5000 for both thighs). 

Groundbreaking Cellulite Treatments on the Horizon at Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic

Although Cellulaze™ is not available at the Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic, Dr. Obi is in the process of working with a highly respected medical company that is currently in the clinical trials of a groundbreaking cellulite treatment. This new enhancement will allow him to combine current modalities with the cellulite treatment to enhance a patient’s results and quality of life.

VelaShape Platform
As Dr. Obi works closely during clinical trials of a more promising cellulite treatment, it will perhaps allow him to treat a larger population of patients with cellulite in the near future. Currently, the Obi Plastic Surgery Clinic utilizes the VelaShape platform which will compliment the more effective laser techniques that may be available in the future.

In addition, the SlimLipo platform is an example of Dr. Obi’s commitment to safe and reliable treatments. He has performed over 400 successful SlimLipo procedures over the past two years and continues to combine SlimLipo with other revolutionary procedures, such as Adivive, to enhance patient’s results. With Adivive, a patient can use their own filtered fat for use in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery for a better result.
