New Orleans cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Kamran Khoobehi, and his Associates are proud to offer nonsurgical skin lifting for patients who have undergone facelift procedures and body contouring. This nonsurgical technique compliments the surgical process by helping to fight cellulite that may be trapped under the skin. It is a patented technology that massages the skin to help mobilize the various layers of tissue, fascia, and muscles, and reduce the appearance of cellulite. This procedure is also used as a stand-alone treatment for individuals who have cellulite trapped under the chin, neck, upper and outer thighs, and flanks. For patients who have had surgery, Endermologie is used during the post-operative process to help maximize the surgical results. It leads to a smoother, tighter skin appearance.
How Endermologie is Performed
Endermologie treatments are offered to our New Orleans patients who have undergone liposuction or surgical skin tightening (such as a necklift), or it can be used pre and/or postoperatively for overall cellulite reduction. The procedure is painless and does not leave any visible side effects. The treatment is performed by using a device the gently rolls over the skin. This device pulls the skin using several directions of rotation to treat the various folds and types of tissue found under the skin, sending waves through the tissue to stimulate the skin. This stimulates the production of collagen, elastin, and the activation of lipolysis--all of which lead to fat reduction and overall skin tightening and smoothing. The treatment is usually performed in several treatment sessions and offers proven results. We provide this to our patients as part of their postoperative recovery.
"Endermologie After Liposuction - Dr Khoobehi requires 10 endermologie treatments after liposuction of my inner, outer, and anterior thighs, inner and outer calves, and mons. I had my first session exactly two weeks after my procedure. It lasted about 20-25 minutes and was tolerable. I didn't mind the machine on my thighs, but my calves have been pretty numb and it was uncomfortable (slight burning). I have also had a knot in the right side of my mons (which I believe is fairly common after liposuction of that area) and the treatment was most painful in that area. I have a good bit of soreness in that area today. There is a visible reduction in swelling after one treatment. The benefits far outweigh the unpleasantness for me. I am a believer in the effectiveness of endermologie and I am excited about my remaining treatments."- N. / RealSelf / Jun 11, 2019
