Circumferential fat, also known as cellulite, or those cottage cheese-like fatty bumps you often see on the thighs, buttocks, arms, and stomach area, can now easily be removed with advanced VelaShape technology. VelaShape is a non-invasive device that quite literary melts away circumferential fat and cellulite in as little as four to six treatments. In fact, most of our patients see results after one treatment session.
Men and women who suffer from fatty deposits that are resistant to dieting and exercise are ideal candidate for the VelaShape procedure. But first, let’s backtrack and learn how circumferential fat forms and how it responds to VelaShape technology.
What Is Circumferential Fat?
Circumferential fat is the fat that is found on the outskirts of the body and looks like small fatty deposits we know as cellulite. Often cellulite affects the stomach, thighs, buttocks and arms. Cellulite is formed when normal fat cells beneath the skin increase ins size and push against the skin’s connective tissue, thereby forming the unsightly bumpy appearance.
VelaShape reduces the size of the fat cells, thereby, erasing circumferential fat and the appearance of cellulite as well as stretch marks.
How Does VelaShape Work?
VelaShape has been FDA-approved for reduction of circumferential fat. It utilizes advanced technology by using Bi-Polar Radiofrequency (RF) with Infrared Light Energy, a Vacuum and a Massage Device, all of which work together to heat the fat cells, which are then easily reduced in size with the massaging device that is applied over the skin. This combination of heat and massage encourages fat to drain into the body’s lymphatic system, where its then processed and disposed.
VelaShape is simply a body massage that shrinks fat cells and eliminates cellulite, love handles and stretch marks. It is the most comfortable, non-surgical, fat-reduction treatment available today. In fact, VelaShape can slim the body by up to 3 inches, as shown in clinical trials.

Recovery and Aftercare
VelaShape does not require any downtime. After your treatment session in our office, you can put your clothes back on and move on with your life. Some patients may experience minor swelling after treatment, which subsides quickly, but this is very rare.
VelaShape does not require any incisions, stitches, use of needles of anesthesia. The beauty of this treatment is truly in the fact that is a completely non-invasive body contouring procedure.
We offer complimentary consultations with our San Diego liposuction surgeon, Dr. Reza Tirgari. When you come to see him, he will talk to you about your concerns, perform a physical exam and recommend the best treatment option.
In general, VelaShape treatment sessions can last between 15-45 minutes and for best results we recommend 4-6 treatment sessions once or twice a week. Depending on your unique situation, such as amount of cellulite, Dr. Tirgari will draft a custom treatment plan for you thereby outlining how many treatment sessions you will need and how often to get the best outcome.
One of the most incredible effects of VelaShape is its skin-tightening effects. The heat applied to the skin causes it to tighten as fat is disposed of by the body’s natural systems. All we are doing is helping it along and jump-starting the process by shrinking the size of the fat cells.
