As summer is getting ready to kick into full gear less will mean more. Wearing less clothes will mean showing more skin and in some cases more fat. Here in Southern California, specifically Newport Beach, the idea of a summer without shorts, short dresses, and the most flattering swimsuit is unheard of. While some may say that the look of your legs is only important for the young, others realize that a great pair legs are still a great pair legs at most any age. So what do you do when your legs do not have the best shape and form? Dr. Seify offers several solutions to achieve the thighs a woman can be proud of. There are noninvasive options that have shown great promise and are offered within Dr. Seify’s on-site med spa. Velashape is offered as an FDA cleared noninvasive solution to reducing the circumference of the thighs. This nonsurgical procedure allows patients to over time improve the actual thickness of the thigh area as well as improve the appearance of cellulite. The recommended number of treatments to achieve optimal results will vary from patient to patient; however, Dr. Seify and his staff will assist patients in determining the correct number of treatments to achieve the results that they desire. As an experienced board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Seify is also able to recommend and perform liposuction for patients who are concerned about the thickness on their thighs. Liposuction of the thigh area is an extremely delicate procedure and should only be performed by plastic surgeons who are experienced in sculpting the thigh area. The thigh has an extreme amount of thick muscle and only an experienced plastic surgeon will achieve optimal results without compromising the tone and appearance of the thighs. The inner thigh can also be a very delicate area when performing liposuction. It is important that only the correct amount of fat is removed or patients can yield a result that produces loose and lax skin on the inner thigh. Admittedly no one likes thighs that rub together and the ideal look is to have space between the legs in the upper part of the inner thigh area. While this is not achievable for everybody Dr. Seify is able to improve upon the appearance of the thighs for most patients. Patients who are considering rejuvenation of the thighs either through liposuction or noninvasive VelaShape treatments are encouraged to contact Dr. Seify’s office and schedule a consultation.

Velashape is a non-invasive, non-surgical body reshaping procedure used for cellulite and circumferential reduction. While the results are similar to those of plastic surgery and other body contouring procedures, Velashape is a painless outpatient procedure requiring no recovery time.

Because of its fast results and the ease of the procedure, Velashape was voted the number one cellulite reduction procedure in 2009, in addition to currently being the most popular body reshaping procedure among celebrities. Velashape is the only FDA-approved non-invasive medical procedure used for body shaping, cellulite reduction, and circumferential reduction in body contouring clinics to date.

The most common treatment areas for Velashape include the buttocks, abdomen, and thighs. Since these areas are commonly affected by pregnancy and are sometimes difficult to isolate in postpartum weight loss, Velashape has been especially popular among moms who wish to return their bodies to pre-pregnancy state.

Velashape is approved for circumferential reduction of the thighs, reducing their size anywhere from one to seven centimeters, depending on the number of treatments. In addition, Velashape is also used to reduce cellulite on the thighs, buttocks, waist, and abdomen.

How Does Velashape Work?

Velashape uses “elos” technology, a combination of bi-polar radiofrequency and infrared light energy. Elos is then further combined with mechanical vacuum massage. The elos technology isolates the targeted area, heating this area only, while specially designed massage rollers smooth out the skin to ensure correct heat energy distribution. The metabolism of the stored energy is increased, promoting better lymphatic drainage and shrinking the size of the fat cells and chambers.

Velashape is often described as feeling similar to a deep tissue massage, so this painless procedure actually feels therapeutic. A pulsed vacuum device is used to prep the skin for treatment by massaging the skin into the prime treatment position. The bi-polar radiofrequency and infrared light energies create a warming sensation on the skin as they isolate the fat cells under the skin’s surface. Each treatment session lasts from 20 minutes to one hour, depending on the size of the area being treated.

Candidates for Velashape include patients with a body mass index under 30 and a cellulite classification level of one or two, in which cellulite appears spontaneously while standing up but not while lying down. Doctors performing the procedure will additionally asses each patient’s overall health before determining whether the procedure will be beneficial.

What is Cellulite?

Fat chambers are made up of rigid fibers. When fat cells are enlarged (when a person gains weight in an isolated area), the rigid fibers push up against the soft skin tissue, causing the rough, “cottage cheese” texture on the skin’s surface. Velashape reduces the appearance of cellulite by heating the fat cells beneath the skin while using the mechanical vacuum massage to smooth out the skin’s surface.

Cellulite is a common condition in women, caused by a combination of risk factors that include heredity, hormones, smoking, poor diet, lack of hydration, and too little exercise. Cellulite is a problem for nearly 80 percent of women today, regardless of their body type, shape, or weight.

The Benefits of Velashape

Velashape is a safe, comfortable, and effective procedure for reducing the circumference of the thighs and cellulite on the thighs, waist, buttocks, and abdomen. The procedure can produce a toned, well-shaped and contoured body in as few as four sessions. One feature that makes Velashape stand apart from other fat reduction procedures is that it is non-surgical and requires no recovery time. Patients can walk out of the clinic directly after the procedure and return to work and their other daily routines immediately.

The results of Velashape are gradual, so there is no drastic change after any one treatment session. Instead, Velashape produces a steady reduction of fat and cellulite each time the treatment in repeated. A noticeable difference is obtained after four treatment sessions, although additional treatments may be performed until the desired body shape is reached. The gradual effectiveness of the treatments can be a benefit for patients wishing to avoid an obvious overnight change that can draw too much attention to a person’s suddenly different appearance.

Additional benefits of Velashape include more confidence, better self-esteem, and an overall improved lifestyle.
