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.

Your Consultation

We offer 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.
