Cellulite is the uneven, dimply flesh commonly found on the thighs, hips, butt, and stomach. It’s sometimes said to look like cottage cheese or an orange peel. There isn’t a lot of information about what causes cellulite, though it generally involves fibrous connective cords that join the skin to the muscle underneath, with the fat lying between. As fat cells collect, they push up against the skin, while the long, fibrous bands pull down. This creates an uneven surface or dimpling.

At Riopelle Cosmetic Surgery & Laser Center in San Ramon, we offer a treatment called “Cellfina®.” The treatment combines a proven approach with innovative, proprietary technology to treat the primary structural cause of cellulite— the connective bands woven throughout fat in the thighs and buttocks. This treatment is designed to get rid of cellulite dimples by cutting the bands. It sucks the fat into a chamber and the device cuts the band within the fat. The doctor places the device over each dimple and provides a local numbing agent, which is followed by the treatment itself.
