Smooth Your Skin

The accumulation of cellulite can cause an uneven skin texture that makes individuals self-conscious. A cellulite reduction treatment can improve the appearance of your skin and boost your self-confidence all in one procedure. Our compassionate team at MG Plastic Surgery is passionate about helping our patients look and feel their best. We deliver exceptional results to women and men seeking cellulite reduction in Scottsdale, AZ. 

What Causes Cellulite to Form?

Cellulite appears as stubborn dimples below the skin. These continue to develop as we age and can be difficult to treat simply with a healthy diet and regular exercise. Cellulite dimples form when fat cells become enlarged and push up against skin attached to fibrous bands known as septae. The septae pull the skin down, creating an external dimpled appearance. 

The uneven texture that cellulite creates can begin to multiply with time, making the skin look dented and less firm. Patients seek our specialized cellulite reduction treatment to restore a smooth, flawless appearance to the skin’s surface.

How We Perform Cellulite Reduction

Our cellulite reduction procedure removes stubborn fat cells and then smooths and tightens the skin to enhance your overall appearance. 


Liposuction is an effective surgical procedure to remove unwanted fat cells that cause the appearance of cellulite on the body. Through a small incision on your desired treatment area, a cannula emits ultrasound waves that soften fat cells so they can be suctioned out of the body. Removing excess fat that causes cellulite dimples gives the skin a more toned appearance.

Agnes RF Skin Tightening

The Agnes RF treatment uses a unique laser that combines radiofrequency energy and deep-penetrating microneedles to smooth and tighten the skin through the deepest dermal layers. This powerful laser system sculpts the treated areas. By stimulating the body’s source of collagen production, the natural rejuvenation capabilities jumpstart to give the skin a fresh glow.

Microneedling and RF Microneedling

Microneedling and RF (radiofrequency) microneedling are two treatments that can be effective in reducing cellulite. Standard microneedling involves tiny needles puncturing the skin to trigger the body’s natural healing process. This stimulates the production of more collagen, elastin, and skin cells, which allows healthier skin to grow. Microneedling treatment creates smoother, more youthful skin, reducing cellulite and various other cosmetic issues.

RF microneedling is very similar to standard microneedling. With RF microneedling, waves of radiofrequency energy are delivered into the skin with the tiny needles. This increases the level of collagen stimulation and allows for deeper penetration, which results in more powerful skin healing. For more severe cellulite dimples, RF microneedling is typically the better option.


BodyTone is an innovative muscle-toning device used to strengthen weakened muscles and rebuild lost muscle mass. The device achieves this by sending pulses of energy to the muscles, which causes them to rapidly contract. Because the BodyTone treatment creates stronger, more defined muscles, it can create smoother, firmer skin and significantly reduce the appearance of cellulite dimples. Plus, BodyTone treatment is quick, simple, and requires no recovery downtime.

What to Expect

Our customized cellulite reduction treatment completely reduces pockets of fat cells in the treated areas, rejuvenates the skin, and smooths the skin texture. Our expert professionals will walk you through every step of the procedure, ensuring you are safe, comfortable, and satisfied from start to finish.

Am I a Candidate?

Our cellulite reduction procedure is best for patients with reasonably elastic skin and pockets of stubborn fat that they would like to remove. During your initial consultation, our expert surgeon, Dr. Manuel Gigena, will assess your current weight and skin health to determine if you may be a good candidate. It will be essential to note whether you plan to gain or lose weight in the future, as this can affect the maintenance of your results.
