Cellulite can be embarrassing and up to 90% of women will develop cellulite at some point in their lives. Now, with the help of the new, FDA-cleared Avéli device for cellulite reduction treatment, women can finally feel confident with their lower body rejuvenation that they’ve been wanting.

Cellulite forms when the fibrous bands of connective tissue pull down on the skin. This tension creates depressions or cellulite dimples on the skin. This might happen over time as the connective tissue shrinks or becomes more rigid.

Avéli has a unique and effective way of treating the appearance of cellulite on the thighs and buttocks. While some cellulite treatments target the fat beneath the skin, Avéli works by addressing the underlying cause.

Patients can expect a reduced appearance of cellulite in each treated area with minimal downtime – leading to improved self-esteem and confidence soon after their treatment Call Body By Ravi Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics at 281-242-1061 today to schedule an Avéli consultation with a board-certified plastic surgeon that is trained in the Avéli procedure.


When it comes to reducing the appearance of cellulite, there are many treatment options – from laser treatments to acoustic wave therapy, which takes up to five sessions to see results. However, most of these other treatments don’t address the key reason for dimpled skin; the connective tissue (septa bands) that lie beneath the skin’s surface pulling down on the skin.

Avéli is the new, FDA-cleared device-based treatment that targets cellulite on the buttocks and thighs. It is an effective, minimally invasive cellulite treatment option.

Avéli is not intended to reduce subcutaneous fat. However, in less than an hour, a single treatment can make a significant difference in the look and texture of your skin and provides a long-term reduction in cellulite dimples. Patients can expect a reduced appearance of cellulite in each treated area and significantly less downtime compared to surgical options.


There are several reasons why women choose Avéli for cellulite reduction over other treatments:

Avéli is minimally invasive and only requires local anesthesia, which reduces risks and potential complications compared to surgeries that require other types of anesthesia.

Recovery time is minimal. Most patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately.

Avéli is FDA-cleared to be a “single treatment option.” Instead of returning for multiple treatments, just one treatment will enhance the look of your skin by reducing the appearance of cellulite in the thighs and buttocks.

The results from this ground-breaking treatment can be seen rather quickly. You can expect results starting one-month post-treatment and studies demonstrated treatment benefits through one year of observation.

The Avéli procedure can help to improve your confidence and self-image. If you’ve ever wanted to reduce cellulite, the Avéli treatment may be just what you’ve been looking for.


Avéli is FDA-cleared to treat cellulite in the buttocks and thighs of adult females. Each treatment area will show results in as little as one month.


The Avéli treatment uses a disposable, handheld device to mechanically cut the septa, or bands of fibrous connective tissue, that pull down the skin’s surface, causing the dimples.

Through tiny incisions, the doctor inserts the Avéli device into the area where the septa are located. This single-use device identifies which septa are contributing to the dimple(s). When the targeted septa are completely released, the device gives confirmation, and the skin becomes visibly smoother.

This procedure takes approximately 30 minutes for the thighs and 30 minutes for the buttocks. This means that both areas can be treated in about an hour – making Avéli a quick and efficient solution to cellulite reduction. Most patients report minimal discomfort during the procedure.


Over the last decade, board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Ravi Somayazula has dedicated his practice to bringing patients the newest, most innovative treatments and procedures in a safe, low-stress environment. Specializing in body contouring techniques, Dr. Ravi is happy to have found Avéli as a minimally invasive cellulite treatment that provides patients with little downtime, fast results and long term improvement in appearance.

“We believe women shouldn’t be judged for having cellulite, nor should they be judged for caring or wanting it gone.” – Revelle Aesthetics, manufacturer of the Avéli device


We welcome you to our beautiful and state-of-the-art clinic for patient-centered consultation, a board-certified physician, Dr. Ravi or Dr. Gopathi will get to know your individual needs and assess your areas of concern. Once you’ve discussed your aesthetic goals, the doctor will describe the Avéli procedure in detail and determine whether Avéli is the right cellulite reduction treatment to meet your needs. You’ll have plenty of time to have your concerns addressed and all of your questions answered.

Our doctors will also discuss any other techniques that may be helpful for achieving optimal outcomes. They are both skilled in a variety of techniques that might help our patients, and they will give honest recommendations on what would be best for you before making a customized treatment plan.


Avéli treatments are performed in a Body by Ravi Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics procedure room or at our connected surgery center, Houston Plastic Surgery Center.

After you are made comfortable with a local anesthetic, the Avéli device will be inserted through small incisions strategically made in the treatment area(s). The device targets the septa bands that are causing the dimples and then the bands are cut, or “released.” The treatment area is then dressed and patients are back home the same day.


After your Avéli treatment, you will have some tenderness and light to moderate bruising in the treated area(s). This is normal and temporary. Most patients return to their normal activities within 24 hours after treatment.

You’ll see some improvement in your skin immediately. After a month, when the bruising subsides, the improvement will be much more apparent. After that, you’ll continue to see improvement over the course of three months.
