Does the Cost of Cellulaze Vary Depending on the Severity / Grade of the Cellulite?

Is the cost assigned per area regardless of how bad the cellulite is, or does the the severity of the case factor into the cost as well?

Fees are based more on surface areas to be treated and surgery time than type od cellulite. Regards dr. B

Treatment cost based on area, not severity

Hi there, the cost of Cellulazed is based on the treatment area, not the severity of the treatment. At our practice, each treatment area is approximately the size of an 8.5x11 sheet of paper. For the average sized person, that size area will accommodate an entire back portion of one thigh. Certainly have a consultation with your local provided to get an accurate assessment of the costs for all of the treatment areas you desire. Best of luck, this is a very exciting procedure.

Cost of Cellulaze depends on areas treated

In general, the cost of Cellulaze treatment varies on the basis of how many areas are treated, not necessarily the severity of the cellulite.

However, this may vary among providers.

In cases of very severe cellulite, the outcome may not be as dramatic as in milder cases.

Cellulaze Pricing

Hi Megan. The price for cellulaze depends on the treatment area, not on the severity of your cellulite.

Cost of Cellulaze

Hello and thanks for the question.  Cellulaze is not priced differently per grading or severity, but if you have type 3 severe cellulite with contour deformities, you would be a better candidate for Smart Lipo Triplex.  I would contact a board certified plastic surgeon who is familiar with both procedures to see which one is appropriate for you.  I hope this helps and best of luck.  Robert Kratschmer, MD, board certified in Plastic Surgery

Severity is not the determining factor

Costs for Cellulaze are determined by the size of the area being treated not the grade or appearance of cellulite.  Cellulaze is a very detail oriented procedure, in which very small areas are treated at one time, regardless of severity.  Surprisingly, there is little time difference spent in an area that is moderate compared to severe.
