At Beyond Beautiful Texas in Plano, TX, double board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Vu Ho, now offers VelaShape at his plastic surgery practice! We are so excited to offer this new, noninvasive technology to reduce unattractive lumpiness under the skin that cellulite can cause. No matter if you are thin or overweight, young or old, cellulite can happen to you. We understand that you want to look your best, and cellulite can keep you from having a positive body image. Using bi-polar radio frequency energy to heat the cellulite combined with gentle vacuum pressure to increase the depth of the treatment, VelaShape destroys those unwanted fat cells without surgery. At Beyond Beautiful Texas, you can have a private consultation with Dr. Ho about ridding your buttocks, arms, abdomen, flanks, and/or upper thighs of cellulite with VelaShape. Call and schedule your appointment today.

The best candidates for VelaShape are women (and some men), who want to improve the cellulite appearance on the arms, flank, abdomen, buttocks, and upper thighs. As this is not a treatment for weight reduction, VelaShape works best on patients who are at a stable weight, and want to target areas of the body resistant to change with a healthy diet and/or exercise regimen. Cellulite, which does not discriminate, can be found on thin and overweight, and/or young and old bodies.
What to Expect
During your treatment session, we will ask you to lay in the prone position while an Aesthetic Technician passes the hand-held VelaShape device over the treatment area. Most of our cellulite reduction patients say this feels like a relaxing massage, and has a warm sensation but is not painful. While the device uses a vacuum suction to bring the cellulite closer to the surface, the VelaShape targets the area with heat guided by a bi-polar radio frequency energy. The length of time your appointment takes is dependent on the amount of treatment area(s) covered.
After your VelaShape cellulite reduction session, your skin will look slightly red for several hours after you leave our plastic surgery office. You will see the surface of your skin gradually look smoother with a noticeable reduction in lumpy cellulite. Another benefit to this treatment is that you may see a circumferential reduction (inches lost) because the VelaShape will reshape the contour of your skin. Your body will naturally absorb the dead fat cells and eliminate it as waste. Once the treatment is finished, you will be able to return to your normal activities. However, we suggest that you avoid heavy, strenuous activities for 1 – 2 weeks.
Plan Your Procedure
Noticeably Smoother Skin
With the VelaShape, noninvasive cellulite reduction treatment, you can tone your skin with 1 – 3 treatment sessions at Beyond Beautiful Texas. While cellulite is not a serious medical condition, it is unattractive and may affect your self-esteem. We want you to love your skin again! If you think this may be a treatment you would like to try to get rid of the dimpled flesh that usually appears on the thighs, arms, hips, butt, and stomach, please call and schedule a VelaShape consultation at our Plano, TX office.
Dr. Ho and our entire staff are completely dedicated to prioritizing your comfort and satisfaction during this cosmetic procedure. We now offer the PRO-NOX system to ensure your comfort if you cannot use or choose not to use traditional anesthetics.
With the PRO-NOX™ Nitrous Oxide Delivery System, you can control anxiety or pain during any medical procedure. Much like what you might receive from your dentist for pain, this vapor blend allows you, the patient, to choose the strength of the nitrous oxide and oxygen flow. Never worry again about sedation of local anesthesia.
