Cellulite Treatment - Akron, OH

On 3/12/14 I had Cellulaze with VenusLegacy performed on my thigh and upper legs by plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Gentile. I am so taken aback by my results that I wanted to scream to the world how HAPPY I AM!
I have had cellulite on the back of my legs since the age of 15. I am an active, physically fit 43-year-old woman that just so happens to be an RN. I mention this because I am aware of the realities of surgery and know that healing takes TIME.
Armed with my research, I made the appointment with Dr. Gentile. From the start, Dr. Gentile’s staff was very welcoming and professional. I spoke at length with Dr. Gentile regarding different options to deal with my ugly cellulite that seemed to plague my spring and summer short-wearing season every year! He was both open and honest with the type of results I would achieve from each procedure and gave me options, which was quite refreshing.
I chose cellulaze with 3 venus legacy treatments.
The Cellulaze procedure itself was not too painful…minimal pain at best; just a lot of pressure, but light sedation was administered. And true to form the staff was WONDERFUL!! Post procedure I needed to wear a tight fitting undergarment and there was a lot of bruising. It took a few weeks for the swelling and bruising to heal at which time I would visit the office for follow-up and to finish up with the rest of my VF treatments. So I am on the mend….
To close, you must know that the body takes time to heal. And that full results are not achieved til around 4-6 months, hence me posting 2 months later. I didn’t walk away from the procedure with 100% results. In this short period of time I can start to SEE smoothness…. I can FEEL smoothness… each week it seems to be getting better and better. I am forever grabbing a mirror and looking at my backside…my husband is getting a bit annoyed by my antics but is also pleased with the results. I would recommend this procedure and most importantly I would recommend Dr. Richard Gentile and staff!
