There was a time when there weren’t many viable options for getting rid of cellulite and patients were stuck with lumpy, unattractive thighs. With modern technology, Cellulaze is a highly effective laser treatment that penetrates the skin to treat the structures responsible for cellulite. Seattle area plastic surgeon, Dr. Marosan, uses Cellulaze to increase the thickness of a patient’s skin to reduce the appearance of cellulite and after just one treatment, patients will notice a dramatic reduction. This procedure also increases skin elasticity for a smoother, more toned look.
During a Cellulaze procedure, small incisions about the size of a pen tip allow the laser fiber to be inserted under the area where cellulite exists. This temperature-regulated laser is used to smoothen cellulite bulges using the laser to melt the fat cells. During this process, the laser fiber releases energy under the skin, which stimulates new collagen growth. It continues to release fibrous bands resulting with a thicker, smoother quality of skin. Over time, new fibrous straps continue to develop under the skin creating a new and freshly formed skin structure and softer appearance.
"I am extremely happy with the treatment I received from Dr. Marosan and his staff - I saw Dr. Marosan after struggling with a condition for over 5 years. I was very self conscious, but Dr. Marosan and his terrific staff made me feel comfortable and put me completely at ease. I can not speak highly enough of these folks and would highly, highly recommend that anyone needing surgery be sure to see Dr. Marosan. The procedure went well and I am more than satisfied. They are great and I will forever be grateful for what they did for me."- H. / RealSelf / Apr 06, 2017
"Best Surgeon for Labiaplasty - I recently went to George Marosan for labiaplasty and my experience could not have been better. The staff was amazing, even called me to talk through my jitters a few days before. I had been wanting to do this for a few years and made an impromptu decision around December. I did extensive research on plastic surgeons in the Puget Sound area and after reading Dr. Marosan's reviews and meeting with him, I knew this was the surgeon I wanted to trust with such an intimate procedure. He did a superb job answering my questions, explaining the procedure and recovery and throughout it all I knew that he and his staff genuinely cared about me. One of the best decisions of my life."- S. / RealSelf / Apr 01, 2017

"Great Dr., Best Choice - Even thinking about getting plastic surgery made me extremely nervous. I did a lot of research and decided to go with Dr. Marosan. Fantastic decision. He took the time to answer every single one of my questions, called to check in with me the night after the surgery. The staff is extremely nice and genuine. I am 4 days post op and so grateful I chose him for the procedure."- N. / RealSelf / Jan 17, 2017
This procedure uses tiny incisions, just large enough to insert the laser tip. It is considered an outpatient treatment and is typically performed using local anesthesia. The patient will be able to go back to their normal routine a few hours after the procedure, and back to more strenuous activities within several days. According to surveys, 93% of patients report that they are satisfied, or very satisfied, with the results.
How Effective is Cellulaze?@headingTag>
The technology behind Cellulaze has been tested over and over. There are many actual cases of patients who report that even after one full treatment, long-term results are achieved. Studies have shown that this technology improves skin thickness by 25% and elasticity by 29%. This gives the skin a smoother appearance. This procedure is highly recommended for those who do not necessarily desire fat removal (i.e. through surgical liposucton), but instead, they desire a treatment to specifically address cellulite.
A Cellulaze treatment typically takes 1 to 2 hours. It is done under local anesthesia with a tiny cannula inserted in very small incisions to work on the fibrous bands and fat pockets underneath the skin. The length of the procedure depends mainly on the thickness and spread of the cellulite area to be treated.
The recovery period is quick after a Cellulaze treatment since the incisions made are minimal. The only noticeable discomfort will be redness and numbness in the areas of treatment. Scarring is also minimal with this procedure. Compression bandages are worn to help relieve pain and discomfort. Most patients are able to resume normal activities within 3 days.
Probably the most noteworthy fact regarding Cellulaze, is that over time, patients will continue to see results. This is due to the advanced collagen growth that takes place under the skin. Continued results are usually the most evident between 1 to 3 years after treatment.
