Avéli® Cellulite Treatment in New Jersey

A Permanent Solution to Cellulite

Avéli Cellulite Removal at True Beauty Plastic Surgery & Medspa

First, skip the guilt trip. That exasperating cellulite is not your fault. Globally, 90 percent of adult women have cellulite, regardless of their body types, diets, or exercise regimens.

But while cellulite is common, it is by no means popular. Now, you don’t have to put up with it, thanks to a new and innovative technology known as Avéli cellulite removal.

What is cellulite?

Cellulite is a skin condition that creates dimpled lumps, creating a “cottage cheese” or “orange peel” appearance on your thighs, hips, or buttocks.

Since nine out of ten women have cellulite, hormones clearly contribute. While many young women have cellulite, aging often also plays a role. As you get older, your skin gets thinner, your fat cells grow in size, and your fibrous connective tissue bands — known as septa — shrink and harden. This causes an uneven tugging effect on the surface of your skin. Hello, cellulite dimples.

What is Avéli?

Simply stated, Avéli is the most effective cellulite treatment yet invented, setting a new gold standard for cellulite treatment. It is a safe and convenient FDA-approved procedure that produces permanent results in just one treatment!

Born in Silicon Valley, Avéli works by severing those subdermal bands of connective tissue known as septa, releasing the tugging and pulling that causes cellulite dimples, allowing your skin to smooth and “even out.”

There is no guesswork. You can literally watch cellulite disappear as the technology confirms in real time that each individual cellulite dimple has been released.

The versatile device contains a light, a hook, and a small surgical blade. The device slides easily under your skin and the light provides navigation for your doctor. When the hook encounters a cellulite dimple, your doctor pushes a button that releases the tiny blade that cuts the septa.

The difference is the device’s ability for remarkable precision. Greater accuracy produces greater results!

Benefits of Avéli cellulite removal

  • FDA-approved
  • Minimally invasive
  • Requires little to no downtime
  • Only one treatment session
  • Real-time verification that each discrete dimple has been destroyed
  • Fewer risks and side effects compared to previous cellulite treatments

The device is proven to be highly effective at eliminating cellulite from the buttocks, hips, and thighs.

Are you a candidate for Avéli?

While there are no age restrictions, patients are typically between 25 and 45 years of age. Candidates should be in good general health and:

  • Have not had a liposuction procedure on the same body area
  • Have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of less than 25.

This brand new technology can treat cellulite of varying complexity and severity. However, if it is determined that your cellulite is caused primarily by advanced skin laxity or fat pockets, this may not be an effective treatment for you.

What’s the difference between Avéli and QWO cellulite treatment?

Avéli represents a true “giant leap” forward in cellulite treatment! QWO is an enzyme injection procedure. While QWO requires three treatment sessions, Avéli achieves results in a single session that instantly confirms that each cellulite dimple has been released. QWO cannot do that.

Finally, Avéli carries far fewer risks and possible side effects than QWO.

New Jersey Aveli provider Dr. Friedlander is a great listener. She will take the time to learn all about your goals and outline a precise and customized treatment plan for you. She will also meticulously review your medical history to ensure that you are a candidate for treatment.

Preparing for your Avéli treatment

If you smoke, you will need to stop for a period before and after your treatment as directed by your doctor. You will also need to suspend the use of any supplement or medication — such as aspirin — that can elevate bleeding levels.

Your Procedure

Treatment is performed using local anesthesia. During Aveli Cellulite Treatment New Jersey plastic surgeon Dr. Friedlander will first make a few small incisions in your treatment area, she will then slide the device through those incisions and guide it carefully beneath your skin to target and sever the septa causing cellulite dimples. Again, this technology enables your doctor to confirm that each dimple has been released.

At the end of the procedure, your treatment areas will be covered with cushioned dressings for your comfort and healing.

The whole thing typically takes only about an hour and is performed in the comfort and privacy of our office.

Recovery, Aftercare, and Maintenance

You will be free to drive yourself home and resume almost all of your normal activities, but be careful to avoid strenuous lower-body exercise like cycling or running for two weeks.

Expect some light bruising in your treatment areas for a few days. You may also feel some temporary discomfort and tenderness when you sit down. Any resulting firmness in treatment areas resolve within 2-3 months following treatment.

Avoid sun exposure to your treatment areas for at least a month. After that, be sure to use sunscreen (SPF-30 or higher) on your treatment sites.


Just as soon as your swelling subsides, you will start to see results. Benefits will be much more apparent within a month of your treatment, with full results evident in about 90 days.

Get Rid Of It For Good!

Dr. Beverly Friedlander — “Doctor Bev” — has always been a trailblazer and “early adopter” in her 35 years of practicing medicine. Dr. Friedlander is one of the country’s leading plastic surgeons, and she is proud to offer a comprehensive array of state-of-the-art nonsurgical aesthetic procedures and treatments aimed at raising patients’ self-confidence and quality of life.

You won’t find it available at many medical practices or medspas, but now you can find this remarkable treatment at True Beauty Plastic Surgery & Medspa in New Jersey. Schedule a consultation by calling (973) 912-9120.


Since the procedure is performed using local anesthesia, you will feel no discomfort during your treatment. However, most patients report mild discomfort when sitting on treated areas for up to three days.

Results are permanent in treated areas and follow-up procedures are not necessary. If you develop cellulite in the future, it will not be in your treated sites.

Liposuction is not an effective treatment for cellulite and in fact can make dimpling look worse.

Costs vary depending on the needs and aesthetic goals of each patient. Because this is an elective cosmetic procedure, insurance will not cover the costs. Discuss all costs and financing options with us during your consultation.

All procedures of this type carry risks, in this case including infection, adverse reaction to anesthesia, and allergic reaction to materials and medications.

Of course! Due to the minimally-invasive nature of this technology, it is easy to combine this with other treatments. Talk to Dr. Friedlander about this at the time of your consultation...

Since there is no data to conclusively determine the effects of treatment on fetuses and young children, it’s a good idea to hold off until you have given birth and completed breastfeeding.
