"So I am updating my review and I'm still giving everyone a 5+ star rating! I did the fraxel on Monday and it's Sunday evening and yes I am still pink but the results are amazing! My hyper pigmentation and most of my texture is gone! I also received a chin implant with Dr K on Wednesday so I'm still swollen with that but I know I'm going to love the result of that as well! Again I need to give a shout put to Mel for being a beast with a laser! She is my go to when it comes to my aesthetic needs and also Dr K for giving me confidence with my profile. I just wish the swelling would go down faster! lol damn lack of patience. Well I now have a laundry list of other things I would like to tweak. And I know VIP is the place I can trust and know I'll get the best work done!"- V.B. / Yelp / Feb 18, 2017

"Update: added back two stars because Dr. Khorsandi and his team have impeccable customer service. They contacted me to see if I'd like to come in and see what can be done about the final result. I went to the appointment and Dr. Khorsandi advised me of what would need to be done to fix it (very easy fix by the sounds of it). Also I've learned that what happened with mine is an extremely rare occurrence. I was expecting to have to pay something for a revision but he is doing this for me at no charge! I was floored - and obviously ecstatic. To me customer service is very important - and even though my revision surgery isn't until July I had to re-add the 2 stars because of this treatment. That also confirmed my decision to use him again for a different surgery I had interest in. Other surgeons and businesses take note: THIS is what top notch customer service looks like! Thank you VIP Plastic surgery!"- S.T. / Yelp / Apr 25, 2019
About Our Technologies
Cellulite reduction treatments are a noninvasive way to safely and effectively minimize the appearance of cellulite and improve the contours of the body in the desired areas. Cellulite reduction treatments use radiofrequency energy and gentle vacuum massage to induce apoptosis (fat death). The dead fat cells are naturally absorbed by the body and processed out with time. Dr. Khorsandi uses several systems to provide the right outcome for his patients. Depending on the size of the area being treated, how much cellulite is being addressed, and other factors gathered during the consultation, the appropriate system will be chosen per the patients' needs:
Thermage uses RF energy to penetrate into the deepest layers of the skin to initiate collagen for firmer, younger-looking skin. With Comfort Pulse Technology and cooling effects, our patients are comfortable and protected from burns that the applicator releases. No anesthesia is required and a Thermage session usually lasts less than an hour.
Fractora is a laser system that offers many treatments ranging from laser skin resurfacing to cellulite reduction. Our Las Vegas office uses Fractora Firm, which is a unique thermal skin rejuvenation treatment that heats the subdermal level to promote collagen remodeling and skin tightening. Fractora Firm provides Dr. Khorsandi with precise thermal temperature controls for optimal skin contraction without the risks of overheating. It results in a firmer appearance and can be used on the body as well as facial areas that need skin laxity improvement.
Yet another excellent option that VIP Plastic Surgery offers for cellulite reduction is VaserShape. This nonsurgical system uses ultrasound technology and manual massaging therapy to warm the targeted problem area and treat the underlying fatty tissue. A two-step process, VaserShape also promotes the metabolism and drainage of excess toxins and fats, leaving the body healthier. With energy heat and gentle massaging, the body can look slimmer and tighter leaving patients with a more smooth, sleek appearance.
What to Expect
All nonsurgical cellulite reduction treatments take place inside our VIP Plastic Surgery treatment rooms. Some patients may need local anesthesia to help control comfort, but these treatments generally do not cause discomfort. Patients will be able to leave after the procedure, but they should avoid strenuous activity for at least 1 – 2 weeks. For the first day or two after the treatment, the patient may see mild bruising, swelling, and redness, but this should subside quickly to reveal the patient’s outcomes. Results usually last 6 – 12 months as the patient notices a reduction in the appearance of cellulite and skin dimpling, and an improvement in the elasticity and thickness of their skin. Individual results vary, but on average, patients lose about an inch off the circumference of the treated area.

Cellulite Reduction FAQs
What Is Cellulite?
Cellulite is the lumpy, dimpled flesh that usually appears on the thighs, hips, butt, and stomach. While cellulite is more common in women, it can also be found in men. The cause of cellulite is still unclear, but many doctors think it is fat swollen with toxins to create ripples on the surface of the skin, which may be caused by genetics, thin skin, and aging. Cellulite can be found on thin and overweight bodies, and while it is not considered a serious medical condition, it is considered undesirable and unattractive.
Length of Treatments?
The length of the treatment will depend on how many areas are being treated and the size of each area, but most treatments take at least 1 – 2 hours. Patients should return to get cellulite reduction treatments once a week for 6 – 8 weeks, or as recommended.
To help speed recovery and fat loss, patients may wear compression garments for 2 – 3 weeks after their treatment. It is also helpful to the recovery process if the patient avoids strenuous activity, including exercise for 1 – 2 weeks.
