Cellulite Treatment



Cellulite Treatment is performed by Dr. Shahin Fazilat to remove the dimpled, lumpy texture of cellulite from areas of your body. The results are a smoother, more toned appearance that can make you look slimmer as well as years younger.

Approximately 85% of women incorrectly believe that cellulite can be resolved with diet and exercise. However, cellulite is a structural problem below the skin that can be caused by aging, hormones, genetics, and dramatic weight changes that create an unsightly “cottage cheese” effect.

Cellulite Treatments offered by Dr. Fazilat include Cellulaze®, a new, FDA-approved, minimally invasive treatment using laser energy to treat cellulite on your body.

The Cellulite Treatments provided by our office in Mountain View and Palo Alto address both major causes of cellulite: the brittle, fibrous septae, which is the support system of fat, and the protrusion of accumulated fat cells into the deeper layers of the skin, which causes the “cottage cheese” appearance every one dislikes so much.

The Consult

During your initial Cellulite Treatment consultation with Dr. Fazilat, he will discuss the options and alternatives in great detail, providing you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about your choice of a procedure.


Our Cosmetic Consultant can provide you with information on pre-operative Cellulite Treatment care, recovery, local accommodations, and answer any other questions related to your procedure and stay in the Morgan Hill / Cupertino / Palo Alto / Mountain View, CA area. If you are traveling from outside the US, we highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance.

Once you have booked your Cellulite Treatment surgery, Dr. Fazilat’s office will coordinate the location and time of your Cellulite Treatment surgery. You will receive a pre-operative appointment, which is typically two weeks before your surgery. During this appointment, you will be given instructions for your surgery, as well as any medical request forms for necessary blood work or related medical tests. Dr. Fazilat will also take any pre-operative photos and review your planned procedure(s) so you can ask any final questions. Our office will contact you by phone or by email to review your instructions and your health history.

After your pre-operative appointment, if you have any questions regarding your instructions, you can contact our office by phone or email us at any time. General Surgery instructions can also be found in Patient Resources of our website.

About The Operation

Cellulite Treatment surgery is a common procedure performed by Dr. Fazilat in his practice. Typically, operations are performed as an out-patient procedure under local or general anesthesia with a certified anesthesiologist; surgical times are 1 to 3 hours, depending on the number of areas where Cellulite Treatments will be performed.

Dr. Fazilat offers this type of Cellulite Treatment:

  • Cellulaze® is FDA-approved as the only treatment that attacks the structural problems beneath the skin that cause cellulite. Cellulaze works below the skin at the root of the problem with a special, minimally invasive laser that breaks the fibrous bands that cause unevenness. The laser then thickens and firms the skin for a healthier, smoother appearance that lasts just one easy 1 to 2 hour treatment.

Some of Dr. Fazilat’s patients also have their Cellulite Treatment surgery combined with other procedures, such as a breast augmentation, breast lift, a Mommy Makeover, a Tummy Tuck, or laser liposuction to make you more beautiful from head to toe.


After Cellulite Treatment surgery, our patients are encouraged to walk the evening of your surgery to prevent possible blood clots. Patients may experience mild swelling, bruising, and discomfort in the treated area.

Patients can typically return to work within 2 to 3 days, though strenuous activity should be avoided for 1 to 2 weeks. The patient should also have an adult stay with them for 24 hours following the surgery to monitor their recovery.

Dr. Fazilat will schedule a follow-up post-recovery office visit to discuss your progress.
