What is Cellulite Reduction?
No matter how fit and thin you are, unfortunately, there's nothing you can do to prevent or eliminate cellulite on your own. Cellulite (a fibrous tissue) grows beneath the skin, most commonly around the stomach, hips, and thighs, and can create a bumpy, dimpled appearance. Dr. Gerry Sotomayor is pleased to offer cellulite reduction treatments with cutting-edge technology by Cellulaze™, which can smooth the appearance of cellulite for up to one year. The Cellulaze treatment uses minimally invasive laser energy to melt away fatty tissue and release the connective bands that cause the bumpy look of cellulite. Contact Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta to schedule an appointment, and find out about the noticeable results you could achieve.

"I don’t have a reason to complain for the liposuction procedure at this clinic. The staff were friendly they didn’t share my procedure to anyone I was with. I simply brought myself with my lying roommate and he picked me up for the medical clinic after a couple hours. Healed just fine."- V. / Google / Dec 19, 2021
"(Translated by Google) Excellent doctor, I have known him since 97, he took care of my daughters' pregnancies, I love that he talks about God, great human being, it almost takes me 1 hour to get there, but it doesn't matter because doctor, like him, there is no where I live in covington, ga, what else can I say? God bless you always !!!! (Original) Excelente doctor lo conozco desde el 97 el atendió mis embarazos de mis hijas me encanta que habla d Dios gran ser humano casi me toma 1 hora para llegar pero no importa porque doctor como el no hay donde vivo en covington ga que mas puedo de decir d el k Dios lo Bendiga siempre!!!!"- T.M. / Google / Nov 18, 2021
"Love my Results but Scarring is Bad - I waited until I could do a real review. Now I’m over 3 months post-op. I first did a consultation the second week of March. Everything went well and told me I would be a candidate. The staff was really nice-A1. I met Dr Sotomayor briefly this day. I paid the deposit and scheduled for 2 weeks out for lower/upper ab and flanks (i wanted to do the back rolls as well but decided not to). I honestly booked on faith because the reviews were iffy. Day of surgery, I come in they take vitals and give me a “relaxation pill” and local anesthesia. Now here is where my problem lies but I was so out of it, I couldn’t respond at the time. I thought Dr Sotomayor was doing the surgery but it ended up being a lady named Dr. V. I feel she did me good but this def should’ve been communicated because I literally knew nothing about her. During the approx 2hr surgery, it was a bit painful but they acknowledged my pain and handled it great. I was sent home with instructions and meds.To sum this all up, I love my results considering I had a lot of fat-i think she said she got rid of 4000cc. After the lipo, i was not in a ton of pain but the itching and swelling is a beast. The scarring is bad. I have use Shea butter, Vitamin E oil and Bio Oil every single day, twice a day. The scarring has improved and hopefully will be non existent one day but only time and consistency will tell. If you are ok with scarring then go with them. The price was good considering I had a 35 BMI. My advice to Graceful Contours is to be up front about who will perform the surgery. I will add pics of my great outcome!"- C. / RealSelf / Jul 25, 2021

What Should I Expect AFter Cellulite Reduction Treatment?
In just a few short treatments, cellulite reduction and destroy significant amounts of fibrous tissue under the skin, effectively eliminating the appearance of cellulite in the area. This provides patients with smoother skin, renewed confidence, and the ability to dress freely. Perhaps best of all, all of these results can be achieved without the need for scars or downtime. Patients can simply arrive for their appointment and go on with their day immediately afterward.
How Cellulaze Works
Cellulite reduction is an ideal treatment for patients who are at a healthy weight and want to reduce cellulite on their hips, stomach, buttocks, or legs. Before the procedure, Dr. Sotomayor will use a marker to identify your treatment areas. Next, local anesthesia will be used to numb the area being treated. A very thin laser wand will be inserted into the skin using the Cellulaze device. The laser energy melts the fat and separates the fibrous bands that cause cellulite. The procedure can typically be completed in less than an hour. In most circumstances, you will be able to return to your normal activities the day after your procedure, although you might experience temporary swelling, bruising, and tenderness. You should begin to notice your new, smooth results within about three months as collagen develops.
Cellulite reduction FAQs
What causes cellulite?
Cellulite is related to fat cells and the connective tissue beneath your skin. It often is present in noticeable areas like the thighs, hips, and bottom. Cellulite can be found on thin as well as overweight bodies. While the cause is unclear, medical professionals believe cellulite is the result of factors like age, genetics, and diet.
Are cellulite treatments painful?
Treatments are not painful but may be uncomfortable if you can't tolerate some pressure on your skin. Most of our patients at Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta report a warm sensation during treatment. If you're worried about discomfort, our team members are happy to discuss the details and answer your questions.
How can I recover faster from cellulite reduction?
Nonsurgical cellulite reduction means that you can recover fairly quickly after your appointment. While you should be able to return to normal activities soon, we recommend avoiding rigorous exercises for a short period of time. We want to make sure you heal properly.
When will I see results following cellulite reduction with Cellulaze?
You might notice some immediate improvements, but the magic happens over time. As your body produces more collagen, you'll see smoother and tighter skin. Optimal results are typically visible after a few months.
How does Cellulaze differ from other cellulite treatments?
Cellulaze stands out because it addresses the root causes of cellulite beneath the skin. While many treatments focus on temporary surface-level improvements, Cellulaze offers more lasting results by targeting the structural issues leading to cellulite.
Are there any individuals who should avoid Cellulaze?
While Cellulaze is safe for most individuals, it may not be recommended for those with certain medical conditions, skin infections, or who are pregnant. It's always essential to disclose your full medical history to your Dr. Sotomayor or your technician at Gynecology and Cosmetic Surgery Center of Atlanta to ensure the procedure is safe for you.
